The Gallus Detox Medical & Operations Team
Our Mission Statement:
To deliver unsurpassed care for those in need of alcohol or drug detoxification in a safe, state-of-the-art, compassionate environment. We will constantly adapt to every patient's need and give them a foundation of hope to improve their lives through positive change.
Our Physicians, Registered Nurses and Addiction Psychologist
At the Gallus Drug and Alcohol Detox Centers, you'll find a team of Board Certified Physicians, ICU-Level Registered Nurses, and Medical Care Technicians. They have extensive experience with patients suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction. Working together, the Gallus Team provides a comprehensive approach to drug and alcohol detoxification, accommodating a wide range of needs while focusing on the individual patient. Unlike other "detox" centers operated by "admissions experts" or "withdrawal specialists" with limited or no medical training, Gallus Team members are true medical professionals with backgrounds in critical and intensive care units and emergency rooms.
"They treat it all: blood pressure, anxiety, pain, etc. I would recommend this place to anyone going through withdrawal/addiction..."- Read more of what our patients say—their own detox success stories—about how fearful they had been of detoxing and withdrawal, how safe and cared for they felt with our team, and how that experience has changed their lives.
