Las Vegas Medical Detox Program
Get Clean in a Safe, Monitored Environment
One of the biggest obstacles to recovery is withdrawal. The more severe the addiction (as measured by length and quantity of use, age of first use, method of administration, longest period of sobriety), the more serious the withdrawal symptoms. Many people who want to get better relapse once the withdrawal symptoms kick in. This is where medical detox helps.
In The Nestled Recovery Center’s Medical Detox Program, patients are closely monitored as they go through withdrawal. Our Medical Director prescribes tapers and/or medications that curb cravings and manage withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification is one of the most important steps in recovery. Withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening, so it is critical that anyone ready to get clean get help from an experienced medical professional.

Is Medical Detox Always Necessary?
Detoxification should never be unsupervised, but a full medical detox program is not always needed. Social detox is a less intensive program that does not supply the patient with any medications. This method is only for patients who haven’t had a long-term addiction and won’t experience some of the more serious withdrawal symptoms. Do not enroll in a social detox program without consulting with an addiction treatment specialist first.
The Detoxification Process
Detoxification follows a three-step process:
- Evaluation: The first thing to do is find out how severe the addiction is. This is accomplished through a physical exam and questionnaire. Patients are also screened for co-occurring mental health disorders. All of this information will help guide the course of treatment.
- Stabilization: The actual detox process. During stabilization, patients are provided with medications and counseling to help them stay stable and handle withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms are usually worse in the first week, but the long-term effects can last for months. The most serious problems are cared for in our 10-20 day detox program.
- Preparation: Detox is only one of the beginning steps towards recovery. All patients are encouraged to enroll in a full-fledged rehab program afterward which could last up to 30 days. This is the only way to address the underlying causes of addiction and equip people with the tools they need for long-term sobriety.
The Nestled Recovery Center is a detox and addiction treatment center. Our patients can immediately enroll in our intensive inpatient program as soon as their detoxification is complete. This provides our team with more time to prepare individualized treatment plans. You can trust that our compassionate team will do everything in its power to help you or your loved one.
