Detox can be an important part of treatment and yet not everyone needs acute medical detox services. At Gateway, we use medically supervised withdrawal management protocols to safely and effectively help someone through this process. If a patient needs a higher level of medical services than we provide, we will refer them out to the appropriate facility, and transfer back when medically stable. Not all patients need detox or withdrawal management services. Many patients come to Gateway on substances that don’t require a detox such as marijuana or cocaine.
For those needing withdrawal management, it can be one of the scariest parts of the recovery process. At Gateway, clients can rest assured that Withdrawal Management options are available throughout the full continuum of care at our facilities. The key is knowing what kind of withdrawal symptoms might appear and then having the right professionals to safely treat them.
