When a person has become addicted to alcohol, opioids, or other substances, the pain of withdrawal can keep them trapped in a downward spiral of compulsive substance use. In some cases, people who try to end their substance use without professional help may put their health or even their lives at risk. Thankfully, there is a safer and more comfortable way to accomplish this goal. Seven Hills Hospital in Henderson, Nevada, offers a nonmedical detoxification, or detox, program to help patients begin their recovery journey. Detox at our hospital is a short-term service, typically lasting five to seven days. During this time, patients benefit from evidence-based treatment and round-the-clock support provided by a team of experienced professionals. Once a person has successfully completed detox, they can transition directly to the next phase of their treatment without leaving our campus. This significantly reduces their risk for immediate relapse, and it helps them develop a stronger foundation for recovery.
