Our innovative medical detox programs along with evidence-based addiction treatment programs have helped thousands of people to recover from their substance use disorders. Treatment is one of the single most effective ways to stop an addiction to substances.

When people receive addiction treatment for either alcohol or drugs, they allow themselves to heal their bodies, mind, and personal relationships that have been affected by drinking or using addictive substances. Restructuring your life without the use of alcohol or drugs is possible by attending an addiction detox program or substance use disorder treatment program.

Substance use disorders are chronic medical conditions that disrupt an individual’s ability to function in healthy ways. The continuous usage of either alcohol or drugs complicates social interactions with friends, family, and employers.

This inability to stop using is one sign that a person may need addiction detox services before additional treatment recommendations can be effective at treating the overall substance use disorder.

What is Medical Detoxification?

Medical Detoxification is a set of interventions aimed at managing acute intoxication and withdrawal symptoms. It is the process of clearing known toxins from the body of someone who is acutely intoxicated or dependent on an addictive substance. The detoxification process helps to minimize the risk associated with direct physical damage that is caused by using addictive substances.

People that have developed severe substance use disorders often will require medical detox services to prevent acute life-threatening problems related to the withdrawal process. Individuals that enter an addiction detox program can prevent other medical problems from progressing by utilizing a medical detox program. All substance use disorders will progress over time if not treated for the condition.

The Summer Sky Addiction Detox Program will help individuals medically manage safely the process of acute withdrawal. However, for those that will need more treatment for longstanding psychological, social and behavioral problems associated with addiction it is suggested that these individuals plan on attending our residential 30, 60, or 90-day addiction treatment programs after addiction detox is completed.

Substance Use Detox Services

Detox or medical detox is not a substance use disorder treatment by itself. Detox is a component of the addiction treatment process. It is a medical intervention that addresses the acute medical issues that surface when a person begins to stop using an addictive substance. The detoxification process involves three primary areas of intervention.

  • Evaluation
  • Stabilization
  • Preparing an Individual for Entry into Addiction Treatment


The evaluation process of addiction detox is important for individuals because it involves diagnosis, monitoring, medical testing, lab reports, bloodstream measurements and concentrations, and screening for co-occurring mental and physical conditions. It is a comprehensive process that will involve various assessments that will take into consideration medical and psychological conditions as well as a history of substance use and prior treatment experiences. The comprehensive assessment process of evaluation will help the individual and addiction detox staff to determine the appropriate level of treatment following detox completion.


Helping an individual to become stable physically and psychologically is a core component of the stabilization process. Nothing is more critical than assisting an individual through the acute intoxication and withdrawal process. The stabilization process will involve medical and psychosocial observations and interventions to help a person to become medically stable. The medical doctors and nurses will monitor the stabilization process and fully support an individual until the person is medically free from addictive substances.

The addiction detox program will utilize FDA-approved medications to help relieve the symptoms of withdrawal during the stabilization phase of detox. The stabilization phase of detox is another critical component of the overall treatment of substance use disorders.

Preparing an Individual for Entry into Addiction Treatment

During the entire addiction detox process the medical doctors, nursing staff, and addiction professional counselors are preparing an individual for entry into other types of addiction treatment services. Detox alone is insufficient for treating a substance use disorder. To be effective a person will need to continue past detox into other forms of addiction treatment services. There are many other forms of addiction treatment services that are effective in treating substance use disorders. The medical and clinical staff will help an individual with the continuum of care process following medical detox.
