Medical Detoxification

(615) 453-7227

Our Medical Detoxification program provides inpatient, hospital-based care for patients in the initial phase of withdrawal from alcohol, opioids and other drugs, including prescription medicines. Admission is confidential and voluntary.

You must complete an initial medical criteria and payment method screening with our team by telephone. We will then assist in scheduling admission for treatment, which typically lasts three days. If you need outpatient, psychiatric, behavioral or emergency care, we will help find a more appropriate program.

  • Medical withdrawal stabilization
