In most cases Yes. Those who have developed an addiction to drugs realize they cannot stop. The substance is controlling their lives. In many cases, an addict is unable to accomplish detox from drugs or alcohol on their own. Once addicted to drugs, the body and the brain become accustomed to the presence of drugs or alcohol in the system.
Medical Drug Detox is the first important step towards a successful recovery. Without medical supervision, withdrawals can be uncomfortable and sometimes even dangerous. During the detox process, the body no longer has the drugs or alcohol it depends on. The system reacts and can go into shock or convulse. This process should be monitored by a medical professional. We offer safe and comfortable detox process by providing medical care, anxiety relief and rest in a safe and comfortable environment. Medications and one-on-one counseling guide our clients along the road to freedom from drug and alcohol addiction.

Waldman is a graduate with Distinction in Internal Medicine and has worked in the addiction recovery field for many years.
