After long-term substance abuse, the body can develop a chemical dependency on toxic substances. Sudden removals or detox, of these substances from the body can cause discomfort.

Detoxification at a Pyramid Healthcare facility includes 24-hour nursing care, medications for pain relief, and an element of therapy for the emotional challenges that clients may experience during this initial phase of recovery.

Clients will also meet with detox specialists to discuss their treatment history and begin working on additional treatment plans to ensure success after the detoxification stage is complete.
