Understanding Drug & Alcohol Detox

The drug and alcohol detoxification program at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, is designed for adults age 18 and older who need help stopping their alcohol or drug use. Our nonhospital, medically supervised detox program can help you or your loved one safely rid your body of the substance you have been using while significantly reducing or eliminating the distressing withdrawal symptoms and powerful cravings you might be experiencing.

When a person experiences drug or alcohol addiction, it changes the way their brain reacts to the substance they are using. The more a person uses a substance, the more their brain needs that substance to feel good. It starts to take more and more of that substance for their brain to release the feel-good chemical dopamine, and they may feel sick a lot sooner after the drug or alcohol leaves their system.

All these changes to a person’s brain are what creates chemical dependency, and that’s why it can be so challenging for some people to stop using drugs or alcohol. When they do try to stop, the withdrawal symptoms can be painful and even scary. An individual who is experiencing drug or alcohol withdrawal might sweat profusely, have an increased heart rate, their hands might shake, and they might experience nausea, vomiting, anxiety, hallucinations, or seizures. When an individual goes through drug or alcohol withdrawal without support, they are much more likely to relapse.

Bradford Recovery Center provides a medically monitored detox program that safely supports individuals throughout the detoxification process. Like all programming at Bradford, our detox program is customized according to the specific needs of each person who heals with us. We offer the latest evidence-based solutions, provided in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

Our Nonhospital Detox Program

Information about nonhospital detoxification programming in Millerton, PA

We care for the whole individual at Bradford Recovery Center, which is located in the mountains of north-central Pennsylvania just 15 miles south of the New York border. To receive care through our detoxification program, you must have a primary diagnosis of addiction, but we can also treat individuals who live with certain co-occurring mental health concerns. Our experienced staff will conduct a thorough assessment to determine your specific strengths, challenges, and goals so that your care team can attend to all aspects of your physical and mental health.

Individuals typically spend three to five days in our subacute, nonhospital medical detoxification program, although some individuals might need to stay longer to fully detox from the substance they have been using. You will be monitored closely by a full team of medical professionals, including physicians, physician assistants (PAs), registered nurses (RNs), and licensed practical nurses (LPNs). To ensure that you experience as little discomfort as possible while in detox, you will receive 24-hour nursing care from a team with expertise in helping individuals whose lives have been disrupted by addiction.

Individuals who choose to heal from addiction at our Millerton, Pennsylvania, facility are encouraged to participate in therapy while undergoing detox if they are able. This is an excellent way for you or your loved one to receive additional support during the detox process. It can also help you or your loved one prepare to fully transition to our residential program once you have finished detox.

At Bradford Recovery Center, we are committed to providing adults who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health challenges with the resources they need to safely start to heal. If you or someone you care about is facing mental health concerns and a substance use disorder, you don’t have to face it alone. Our staff is here to help set you on the path to a more fulfilling life that is free from addiction.
