Detox / Special Care


Medically Supervised residential drug and alcohol detoxification

If you are actively using alcohol and/or another drug, detox is the first step on the path to Recovery. We understand addiction and the challenges of withdrawal and detox, and we will help you through your withdrawal.

When you need us, we’re here.

Our sub-acute Detoxification program offers 24-hour closely supervised residential care in a comfortable, safe environment. It is offered either as a stand-alone program, but most people transition from detox to another of our Recovery Programs, which is highly recommended.

Alcohol and drug detoxification: the process

Janus is a “Sub-Acute” detoxification program. Clients having mild withdrawal symptoms from alcohol or drugs who do not have other serious medical or psychiatric conditions do not generally need to be hospitalized for detoxification. All clients who wish to enter are assessed for this level of care using ASAM assessment criteria. If you have any significant medical or psychiatric conditions, those will be considered in your evaluation. Medications to assist with the discomfort of withdrawal and associated symptoms may be used in coordination with your primary care physician. It is important to us as it is to you that you have a safe, comfortable, and supportive detox.
