Learn About Detox

Learn About Detox at Blue Ridge

Detoxification is the process of allowing a toxic substance to leave the body. If an individual has been dependent on a substance for some time, detox may be an uncomfortable or challenging experience. The symptoms each person may experience during a drug & alcohol detox program will vary based on the length of time the individual was taking the drug, the dose, the use of additional substances and the individual’s overall health. That is why Blue Ridge in Georgia offers a dedicated, medically-supervised, detox program.

Medically-Assisted Detox Program

Medically-Assisted Detox Program

Our detox program offers the guidance and support of our medical director and skilled nursing staff. We have a nurse on hand 24 hours, 7 days a week, to ensure a safe detoxification from alcohol or other drugs for all clients. Because an effective detox program is vital to lasting wellness, we strive to make each individual’s detox process as comfortable as possible.

With proper information, your treatment team can determine how rapidly we can help you get off the substance or substances, if medications are needed to help ease your symptoms and, if so, which ones and at what dose. We also understand that psychological withdrawal can often be as difficult as medical withdrawal. Many people mistakenly believe that their substance of choice has been responsible for them being able to do many things, including interact with others, be productive at work or school, or control their emotions. Some may fear that it will be impossible to function at all without the substance. We will begin to work with you on these issues during detox and continue to do so in our residential program. Since this is a common difficulty, it is a topic often discussed in groups and individual therapy.

For more detailed information about Blue Ridge’s detoxification process, please contact our admissions department.

There are several areas of the programming that I LOVE, but weekly yoga and DBT have to be some of the highlights.
