Going to a Phoenix Drug Rehab?
Start Here.


Congratulations: You have made the courageous decision to enter into a Phoenix drug rehab. By recognizing that something needs to change, you have already made progress.

Though the path to recovery is unique to each individual, it is lifelong for everyone, and it starts the moment that you decide that there is a better way to live.

Before entering into an addiction treatment program, the first step is detoxing.

The Gallus Phoenix detox center prepares you for the next stage in recovery so that you have the best chance at success.

What, Exactly, is Medically Detoxing?

The process of medically assisted detox involves ridding the body of addictive substances under the supervision of a clinical care team. Detoxing occurs prior to entering into a drug treatment program.

Stopping some substances abruptly can lead to negative consequences. It is crucial that you speak with your medical provider to discuss your treatment options and whether or not detoxing before addiction treatment is necessary for you. However, detox is something you should not undergo without medical supervision.

Traditional detox methods can be painful and uncomfortable, deterring many people from taking this important first step. That’s why at Gallus Detox, our proprietary protocols focus on patient comfort and safety, reducing the stress on your body and mind during detox and minimizing the effects of withdrawal.

Why Do You Need to Detox Before Entering a Phoenix Drug Addiction Center?

The majority of alcohol and drug programs in Phoenix require that patients not be in active addiction upon admission. Detoxing prior to entering this phase of treatment is crucial for several reasons, including your ability to  approach drug addiction treatment with the best possible frame of mind.

When you undergo detox prior to a drug treatment program, you do not have to manage the symptoms of withdrawal and can be fully present for your treatment.

Getting clean and clear of substances before admission to an addiction treatment facility is the first step in your recovery journey. We’re here to help you start that journey strong.

Do You Need Medically Supervised Detox Before Treatment?

Frequently Asked Questions about Detox & PHX Rehab

Answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about detoxing before substance abuse treatment.

Is Detoxing Before Treatment Necessary?
It is not advisable to enter into an addiction treatment program if you are still actively using, and most local programs will not allow patients to participate until undergoing detox.

Detoxing is the first step in treatment. Entering a program without attempting to manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal allows you to put your energy where it needs to be: on your recovery.
How Long is the Detox Process?
Everyone’s detoxification process is different. The average duration of detox ranges from days to weeks, and depends on the type of substances in your body and your withdrawal symptoms.
I’m Going into Treatment and Need to Get Clean and Sober First. Will it Be Painful?
Traditional detox methods are known to be stressful and uncomfortable for the body and mind. The modern methods used in our program put your body in a state of relaxation and minimize your symptoms while you detox, making the process as stress-free and painless as possible.

Our proprietary IV and oral medication protocols reduce the intensity of withdrawal symptoms so that you enter your drug treatment program with a clearer mind.
What Happens Post-Detox?
There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to addiction recovery. Your treatment plan must be completely customized to your particular circumstances to ensure the best chance of long-term success. Your clinical care team will create a personalized plan for you based on your condition, finances, and psychological needs.
Should I Go to Treatment Right After Detox?
It is highly recommended that you are admitted to an inpatient or outpatient drug addiction program immediately post-detox. Doing so increases your chances of a full recovery and reduces your chances of relapse.
Can You Help Me Find an Addiction Treatment Program in Phoenix?
Yes. Everyone who enters our detox program will exit with a customized plan that is tailored to their individual needs and that offers the best chance at lifelong recovery. Because we are not tied to any specific Phoenix drug rehab, we can find a program that is the best fit for you..

At Gallus Detox, continuum of care is one of our main priorities.We understand that the length of time you spend in a recovery environment directly impacts success rate. You may start your recovery journey here, but this is only the beginning.
What if I Relapse While I’m in Treatment?
Whether or not re-entering a detox program if you relapse during treatment is dependent on several factors. If you return to using while in treatment, speak with your clinical care team to determine the best course of action.

Remember: it is important to be completely transparent with your care team. The goal of addiction recovery is to help you heal long term. A relapse doesn’t mean the journey is over.
Do I Have to Go to Rehab Immediately After Detoxing?
Entering rehab post-detox is crucial to your long term recovery. Continuum of care is key in healing. Admission into inpatient or outpatient care immediately after your stay with us is recommended.
