Freedom from withdrawal and addiction begins with detox…

If you or your loved one are battling alcohol or drug addiction, you know that physical and psychological withdrawal can be the most difficult obstacle to overcome. As much as you tell yourself you’re going to stay away from drinking or drugs, your brain and your body just won’t let you without proper help.

When you’re locked in an endless cycle of quitting, withdrawal, and relapse, you can either stay trapped forever or overcome withdrawal once and for all while getting help from trained doctors and nurses. LRADAC offers compassionate and effective medical detoxification to help you manage your acute withdrawal symptoms.

The staff at LRADAC are trained to provide expert treatment for all types of withdrawal. The detox process helps safely and comfortably purge your system of the drug and alcohol-related toxins that have built up in your system so you can begin focusing on the behavioral stages of the drug treatment process.

Unlocking the Benefits of Medical Detox

When you’re struggling with alcohol or drug withdrawal, it’s critical that you get professional help rather than go “cold turkey.” Medical detox offers a variety of benefits, including:


Trained Doctors and Nurses

Medical professionals who are trained to treat all types of addiction withdrawal effectively. Addiction-trained detox doctors and nurses can help you overcome the worst of your symptoms so you’re able to focus on your recovery journey.


Compassionate, Supportive and Healing Environment

Rather than go through withdrawal by yourself in your home with no resources for safety, comfort or relief, medical detox allows you or your loved one to heal in a clean, comfortable atmosphere where you can get clinical and emotional support.


Safe and Effective Medications to Alleviate Withdrawal Symptoms

Our medical detox program offers safe and effective medications to ease withdrawal symptoms. We prioritize patient safety and tailor care accordingly. Detailed information about medications is provided during the physical exam for personalized treatment.


24-7 Monitoring

The reality of withdrawal is that it can be dangerous and at times life-threatening. Our doctors and nurses monitor you or your loved one around the clock to intervene in the event of any type of medical emergency, such as breathing, cardiac or respiratory issues.
