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 have been drinking and using drugs since I was a teenager and had no negative consequences until recently when my boss sent me to my Employee Assistance Program due to chronic lateness and absences due to my drug and alcohol use. Thank g-d that they sent me to ACI. When I got there I was really scared. I had never been to detox or rehab. The staff was so caring. When I was on the detox unit I did not feel well and the nursing staff did everything they could to make me comfortable. When I moved on to rehab I loved the counselors. The groups were great and they really understood how guilty and ashamed I felt about my life. I learned that guilt and judgment are not helpful. I learned how to think positively and how to see all that I have to live for. I owe ACI my life. Thank you all!"
