Detox is a treatment designed to rid the body of poisonous substances, especially alcohol and drugs. Detox is the necessary first step in a plan of recovery and the process will differ depending on the individual and the substance they are addicted to.

The detox blogs for Northbound Treatment will be general treatment blogs and will be geared towards answering any questions regarding different types of treatment and therapies that are offered at Northbound. We strive to provide relevant resources for individuals that may be struggling with substance abuse or mental illness. We also provide materials for the people that have loved ones that are suffering. Addiction affects more than just the individual suffering from the disease of addiction. We strive to offer support to all people affected.

The Northbound Treatment blogs will often contain a blend of many different viewpoints. Therefore, it is not recommended to be used as professional medical advice. If you believe that you or someone you love is suffering from substance abuse or mental illness, you should speak with your doctor.  However, if you do not have a doctor, we can help offer you recommendations based on your own personal situation. Please give us a call at (866) 511-2458 to discuss your options.
