The Importance of Medical Detox
When it comes to recovery, medical detox is an important initial step. Regardless of what type of substance you have been using and for how long the symptoms associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal can be unpredictable. At CuraSouth we believe that medical detox should be about more than physical stabilization. We offer an integrated program of recovery geared towards laying a solid foundation for continued sobriety.
Medication Assisted Treatment Options
Medication Assisted Treatment, or MAT, can be an important component of medical detox and of some additional levels of care. Certain medications are used to alleviate the more severe physical symptoms of withdrawal while reducing drug cravings. MAT might be utilized in an inpatient or outpatient treatment setting, too — this is usually only the case if a person has been struggling with a severe opioid use disorder.
Individual, Group & Family Therapy
Therapeutic care begins as early as medical detox. Clients have access to individual and group therapy sessions conducted by a licensed and experienced therapeutic professional. Some medical detox centers (including CuraSouth) offer family therapy services. We believe in the importance of family involvement during every stage of the recovery process.
Peer Support Groups
When it comes to long-term recovery, peer support group involvement is particularly important. Peer support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous allow for clients to bond with other like-minded individuals while offering one another encouragement and accountability. At CuraSouth we introduce our clients to the 12 Step model of recovery along with several other peer support group options.
