Withdrawal Management (Detox)

Compassionate Withdrawal Care

Withdrawal Management, commonly called “detox”, is designed to ensure a safe and medically supervised transition through the most intense phase of withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol.

This phase, known as acute withdrawal, usually lasts between 2-5 days depending on a variety of factors. These factors include: substance(s) used, quantity and duration of use, general health and more.

Withdrawal Management patients are assessed and admitted based on the results of their screening interview combined with their place in line. Admittance depends on the availability of open beds and space is not guaranteed and cannot be reserved.

The Patient Role in Withdrawal Management

  • Focus on rest & recovery.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Nourish your body. You will be provided with 3 meals plus snacks each day.
  • Keep staff informed about how you are feeling so they can be as supportive as possible.
  • Help us maintain a peaceful and respectful environment for everyone.
  • Bring a 7-day supply of any current prescription medications with a valid label and in the original pharmacy container. Fora Health will provide medication management for withdrawal symptoms, but patients are responsible for routine medication.


What IS Withdrawal Management?

The sustained use of some substances, including alcohol, cause changes within the body. Once the use of those substances ends, those changes can result in discomfort, pain, and sometimes life-threatening complications. These are known as acute withdrawal symptoms and may include anxiety, restlessness, joint pain, stomach cramps, nausea, insomnia, and others. The goal of withdrawal management is to alleviate these symptoms and help patients safely and effectively cease their use of drugs or alcohol.

As part of the Withdrawal Management program, patients are introduced to the benefits of ongoing treatment, counseling, and recovery resources. Because Fora Health offers the full continuum of care, our clinicians can work with patients to determine the best next steps for treatment and can help patients step up or down to an appropriate program.
