Schick Shadel Hospital Medical Detox
Helping patients detox safely and more comfortably by medicating symptoms
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.
The Importance of the Schick Shadel Detox Program
There are dangerous risks associated with trying to detox on your own – including death. Detoxification is the process of monitoring and administering medical treatment to a person experiencing alcohol or other addiction withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms vary from moderate discomfort to life-threatening. Schick Shadel Hospital’s medical detox treatment provides patients with a safe, comfortable transition through the addiction withdrawal period. Our detoxification treatment is directed by physicians certified in addiction medicine. Registered nurses, with many years of training and experience, provide compassionate and supportive care for patients. Schick Shadel’s detox program uses safe detoxification techniques aimed at diminishing and alleviating the discomfort of addiction withdrawal.
Safe techniques include
- The administration of medications to counteract the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal
- Personalized attention to nutritional repair
- Evaluation of any other medical problems
- Assessment of ongoing needs following detox
