Withdrawal Symptom Managment

NEM Recovery Centers prioritizes the critical phase of drug and alcohol detox, offering a safe and secure environment where individuals can begin their path to sobriety. Our medical detox program is designed with a focus on comfort, employing the latest medical protocols to ensure that withdrawal symptoms are managed effectively and with minimal discomfort.

Prioritizing Comfort + Safety

What Happens During Detox?

Understanding the challenges associated with detoxification, especially from substances like alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opiates, our approach is to prioritize the comfort of our clients above all. Withdrawal from these substances can be uncomfortable and dangerous, making it essential to be under the care of medical professionals. We offer a medical withdrawal process that is as pain-free as possible, ensuring that each individual is ready and able to move forward with further treatment once detox is completed.
