Preparing You to Enter a Las
Vegas Drug Rehab

Your Healing Journey Starts Here

It may have been the encouragement from a loved one. It may have been an eye-opening event. Or, you may have just woken up one day and decided you don’t want to live like this anymore. Regardless of how you decided to go into treatment, you know something must change.

By recognizing you need help, you’ve already made progress.

Prior to admission into a Las Vegas drug rehab program, you need to take the first step in recovery: detoxing.

You’ve made the courageous decision to change your life. We’re here to help you with the first steps in your journey towards recovery.

Why Should You Undergo Medical Detox?

Medically assisted detox is the process of removing substances from the body under the supervision of clinical staff. This is the first step in the recovery process prior to admission to a drug rehab center.

Whether or not you need to undergo this step depends on your individual circumstances. With many substances, quitting abruptly can result in dire consequences, including death. If you are detoxing from a substance to which you have a physical addiction, it is important that you do so under the care of medical professionals.

Traditional detox before entering a addiction recovery program can range from mildly uncomfortable to nearly unbearable. That’s why our Las Vegas detox center uses proprietary IV and oral medication protocols that take a comfort-first approach. This allows you to completely remove substances from your system while keeping your stress level and physical response to withdrawal minimal.

Why is Detox the First Step in Alcohol or Drug Rehab?

Most Las Vegas rehabs require you be substance-free and not in active addiction upon entering treatment. Detoxing prior to admission to a program–whether inpatient or outpatient–is a key part of recovery.
When you enter your next level of care clean and sober of any substances and not experiencing the physical symptoms of withdrawal, you are better positioned to focus on what matters: your healing.

Detoxing before rehab is a major milestone in your recovery. We’re here to help you start the journey.

Frequently Asked Questions about Detox & Rehab in Vegas

Answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about detoxing before going to a substance abuse program.

Do You Have to Detox Before Going into Treatment?
Entering a substance abuse program while actively using is never advisable, and the large majority of programs will not allow patients to participate in their programs until detox is complete.

Detoxing prior to admission into a drug addiction program allows you to start the next step in your journey with a clearer mind, as you are not battling the physical symptoms of withdrawal and are able to put more focus into what’s important: healing.
How Long Does Detox Take?
Your experience with detox may be anywhere from days to weeks. The process depends on several factors, including withdrawal symptoms and the amount of the substance in your body. Your care team will determine how long it will take for you to fully remove the substance from your body.
I Need to Detox Before Going into a Treatment Program. Will it Be Uncomfortable?
Traditionally, detoxing has been known to be a stressful and sometimes painful process. At Gallus Detox, our proprietary methods are changing the narrative. When you undergo your detox process with us, your experience will be as stress-free as possible for both your body and your mind. Our IV and oral medication protocols lessen the intensity of withdrawal so that you can focus on healing.
What Happens After Detox?
There is not a predetermined path to a successful recovery. Your experience must be tailored to your individual needs for the best chance of lifelong healing. Your care team will help create a personalized roadmap for you based on your goals, healthcare needs, and insurance, whether it be an inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment center.
Will You Help Me Find Treatment Centers Here in Las Vegas?
Absolutely. Everyone who is admitted to our facility will have a post-detox plan that is conducive to recovery. As we do not have a direct affiliation with specific Las Vegas rehab centers, we can find the program that is the best fit for you.

Recovery starts here, but it is only the beginning of your journey. Our goal is to help you build a strong foundation for your next stage of recovery: rehab treatment.
What if I Relapse While I’m in a Program?
Whether or not you must re-enter our care will depend on a number of factors. If you begin using again while in treatment, speak with your care team to determine the best next steps.

A lapse is not always a relapse. You can get there. Keep going.
Does Rehab Happen Immediately After Detox?
Continuum of care is important, and the length of stay in a recovery environment directly correlates with success rate. It is recommended that you are admitted to an addiction treatment program immediately post-detox.
