Vantage Point of Northwest Arkansas offers detoxification for adults who come to us chemically dependent upon drugs or alcohol. We understand that seeking help for substance abuse or alcoholism can be a tremendously scary feat, and we aim to make the process of substance abuse recovery as comfortable as possible. To that end, we offer a medically-monitored detoxification program in which we will safely and effectively remove all drugs or alcohol from the client’s body while promoting maximum safety and comfort. Our detox program acknowledges the following steps for our alcohol and drug detoxification process:
Evaluation: During this part of the detox process, a client is tested to see the specific substances that are currently in his or her system and bloodstream. We also evaluate the client for co-occurring, comorbid disorders, dual diagnosis, and mental health disorders.
Stabilization: During stabilization, our client will be guided through the process of detoxification using medications to reduce withdrawal symptom severity. Each client will be monitored 24 hours per day to promote safety and comfort. We’ll thoroughly explain what is happening during this process before it happens so that there are no surprises during this time.
Guiding Into Treatment: The very last step in detox is guidance into the next phase of the recovery journey. As detox only focuses upon the physical aspect of addiction, the next step in addiction recovery focuses upon the psychological treatment of addiction.
For over 30 years, Vantage Point has helped many men and women who have come to us addicted to drugs or alcohol successfully detox and learn the skills needed to lead a sober, happy, and productive life.
