Each patient’s path to recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is a highly personal journey and will be unique to each patient. At Ascendant, we believe those suffering from Substance Abuse Disorder should be given the opportunity to detox and recover with dignity and comfort.
Drug and alcohol addiction takes a toll on one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state. Successful recovery begins in a safe and judgment-free space to begin to heal the mind, the body, and the soul. Attending a medically-assisted or monitored inpatient detox is the critical first step in safe addiction recovery.
The natural process of detox and withdrawal can be dangerous, both biologically and mentally. Depending on the substance in question, it can even be fatal. For patient safety and wellbeing, it’s vitally important that drug or alcohol detox is not attempted alone but in a safe and supervised detox facility.
We offer safe and medically-supervised drug and alcohol detox in a tranquil and private setting at our Detox Center in NYC. All of our detox programs are led by an experienced, compassionate team of addiction specialists with 24/7 care.
Once detox begins, the patient will be prescribed helpful and safe medications that alleviate the more severe symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal. The patient is constantly monitored for stability and comfort while the body expels the harmful toxins.
Depending on the patient’s health and substance use, the medications used will vary. Some may accelerate the detox process, while others serve as symptom management. Our assisted medical detoxification program allows patients to get sober as comfortably as possible with dignity and discretion
