Drug and Alcohol Detoxification (Detox)

Medically Supervised Detox...

Decision Point Detox provides detoxification and treatment for alcohol and substance abuse in an Arizona state-licensed facility accredited by the Joint Commission. Medical detoxification is provided under the direction of our board-certified physicians and a team of specialized nurses who supervise our client’s safe withdrawal from a myriad of addictive substances including but not limited to; Alcohol, Benzodiazepines, Heroin, Methamphetamines, Methadone and a variety of Opiate medications, including Fentanyl, Carfentanil and prescription “Pain Pills”. We also specialize in some of the more popular “emerging drugs of abuse”: Kratom, Ketamine, Piperazine, Bath Salts, Synthetic Cannabinoids, Salvia Divinorum and other psychoactive drugs.

As an in-patient medical detoxification facility, we offer the advantages of 24-hour medical care and supervision provided by our professional staff, and the easy availability of treatment for serious complications. In addition, our private setting prevents access to the abused substance and offers separation from the substance-using environment.

At Decision Point Detox, we enlist a two-phased approach to our client’s care. First, a comprehensive physical assessment and extensive drug or alcohol usage review help us to achieve medical stabilization and relieve the immediate symptoms of withdrawal through utilization of our state-of-the-art detoxification program. Our physicians have developed detox protocols based on peer-review research that emphasizes the use of today’s latest and most efficacious medications such as Buprenorphine (Subutex/Suboxone), Diazepam (Valium), Lorazepam (Ativan), Clonazepam (Klonopin), Chlordiazepoxide (Librium) and Phenobarbital.

Once the client is medically stable and free of physiological withdrawal symptoms, our second phase of care begins in which we focus on behavioral and psychosocial assessments with the aim of helping clients identify behaviors that lead to drug or alcohol usage. Our objective is to provide our clients with “tools” to help develop new coping mechanisms and thought processes. At the end of our two-phased approach, our medical staff can foster a smooth and comfortable transition to one of our Residential Treatment Programs for clients who choose to seek additional care via admission to our residential or outpatient programs . For those clients, the absence of drugs or alcohol in the system allows them to focus on the therapeutic work to be done rather than on the distraction caused by discomfort and cravings.
