Schick Shadel’s Addiction Detox Treatment

We offer a safe and effective detox program that is supervised by physicians seven days a week with 24-hour nursing care. We will medically treat your withdrawal symptoms – keeping you comfortable while you detox from alcohol or other substances until you are no longer symptomatic. Your detox period is usually three to seven days – based on your individual needs.

Daily Patient Schedule

Your 10-day drug and alcohol rehabilitation program consists of aversion therapy, a form of counter conditioning, sedation therapy, individual counseling and group/educational lectures. The program also includes studying the philosophy of The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, written by Don Miguel Ruiz.

In addition to my father, grandfathers, and several uncles, two of my three brothers died of addiction in their 40’s. Being alive is not a given in my family. But I am alive, I’m thriving and I’ve come a long way since those days. I still have no cravings and alcohol still has no place in my life…
