Safe Withdrawal from Heroin Detox, Alcohol or Drug Abuse
As the first step in drug and alcohol addiction treatment, detox is also the most intensive in terms of care and treatment. Here at Milestones, our detox center is staffed by seasoned professional medical and psychological specialists, whose primary concern is keeping you comfortable and helping you function through the initial withdrawal from drugs or alcohol.
Focusing on the three main issues of withdrawal, your heroin detox program will address withdrawal symptoms, which can vary from moderate to severe, depending on how heavily and for how long you have been using drugs or alcohol. We will help you to fight the cravings which might otherwise weaken your resolve. We will also help your body to recover from any vitamin deficiencies or other health issues caused by your heroin addiction.
We achieve complete detoxification by addressing the above points with a combination of medication, counseling and coaching. The process will ensure you successfully and safely negotiate the first critical period of your drug or alcohol addiction recovery.
Why Attend our Heroin Detox Center?
If you decide to try and beat your addiction alone, the obstacles you will face are considerable. More to the point though, you may actually be risking your health by going “cold turkey” without medical support. The withdrawal symptoms alone can soon curtail your resolve, since they may include any of the following:
- Headaches, nausea and vomiting
- Confusion, agitation and hallucinations
- Fever and delirium
- Blackouts or convulsions
In the worst cases, cold turkey can result in seizures or even coma. Therefore it’s strongly recommended that you get medical help for your alcohol detox or drug withdrawal.
Modern medicines can not only prevent you suffering from the worst effects of withdrawal symptoms, but can also make you feel generally comfortable, decreasing the likelihood that you will turn back to drugs or alcohol as a way to relieve acute sickness and pain. Meanwhile, daily medical monitoring will ensure that the right medicines are administered and that any immediate health risks are identified and addressed.
When you arrive you will see the nurse for a intake interview. Medical history, allergies, and drug history are covered. It is important to be honest about your using and relapse. Next you will be given heroin detox medication to relieve symptoms and pain from withdrawal. If you want to go to bed that’s cool. You can eat all the snacks you want, drink gatorade, play video games, or watch movies on Netflix.
We offer group therapy and educational groups during the day and counselors are available to talk to throughout the night if you need them. The nurse is on duty 24 hours a day. Smoking is allowed in the proper area outside.

President Obama has mentioned “medically assisted heroin addiction treatment” which includes long term suboxone maintenance after discharge from the detox center. There are opposing views on this program from AA and NA especially. They do not approve of longer term suboxone use or years of maintenance.
“I have been to my share of rehabs in the past 20 years, and many treatment programs do not give the right amount of suboxone for withdrawals. The doctor at daylight gave me the perfect amount of heroin detox medication plus great food and, they allow couples so my girlfriend came with me.”
“My decision to attend outpatient drug rehab changed my life. I have new friends, a good job, and I am seeing my kids on a regular basis.”
