Outpatient Detox

Outpatient Detox at ACI is offered to individuals experiencing mild to moderate withdrawal from Alcohol, Opiates (Vicodin, Oxycontin, Percocet, Heroin, etc.)  and Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin, Atavan, Valium, etc.) addictions. Outpatient Detox enables patients to safely and comfortably detox while living at home with limited interruptions in their daily routine. This is in contrast to inpatient detoxification where patients stay overnight in a facility.

ACI’s physician philosophy in the outpatient detoxification program is to manage patient’s withdrawal needs with the appropriate medication necessary to ensure a comfortable, safe, and successful detox process.  During the period of withdrawal, patients will also receive daily counseling services. Family members are encouraged to participate in weekly counseling to learn how to support their loved one who is undergoing detoxification for alcohol and other drugs.

Inpatient Detox

“I firmly believe that ACI is why my son is still alive, back with our family, and back to school. As a mother my primary concern was that my son would receive compassionate care and the attention he needed to focus on his recovery. We have been through this before and I was losing hope, so was my son. It is a very lonely and dark place to be. All ACI staff, doctors, nurses, and counselors were always available when I had questions. We were able to visit and we had a family therapy session where I learned that I had to take care of myself too, without feelings of guilt. We also learned how to set limits and boundaries. At last, freedom, from the emotional pain of being part of an addicted family. My son learned the skills he needs to sustain his sobriety. He learned about the importance of maintaining sober friends and activities. He learned how to say no and change the things in his life that kept holding him back from happiness, health, and success. Thank you ACI I have my son back!”
