Medical Detox

Inpatient Medical Detox at Johnstown Heights Behavioral Health

At Johnstown Heights Behavioral Health, we treat those struggling with an addiction by treating the whole person. Our medically- monitored detox program uses the comprehensive history and the needs of the individual to allow for that first step to recovery, detox. We use evidence- based approaches and 24/7 medical monitoring to provide a comfortable detox setting.

What is Detox?

Inpatient detox involves checking in to our hospital. Here we can monitor and manage the care of individuals who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms from drug or alcohol addiction in a controlled, 24-hour inpatient setting. Our staff will then build a recovery plan catered to that individual. Addiction is different for everyone, and we believe that understanding how the addiction developed will help build resiliency and create a foundation for long-lasting recovery.

We Provide:

  • Comprehensive evaluation
  • Supportive environment
  • Short-term detoxification
  • Medication management
  • Group therapy
  • Psychoeducation
  • Case management
  • Discharge and aftercare planning

Why is Inpatient Treatment necessary for Medical Detox?

The treatment typically involves medication-assisted therapy, counseling, and support from a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals to ensure the safety and comfort of the individual during the detoxification process.
