Medically Supervised Detox
When a participant arrives at iRecover, they are placed under the care of medical professionals that assess, monitor and manage the person as they progress through their withdrawal. This is a required first step in the drug detox program prior to starting in the inpatient / residential based classroom program.
Our detox is run Dr. Hilgard Goosen, MB ChB, LMCC, MCFP who is the lead physician for iRecover. The length of stay can vary from participant to participant and typically ranges between 24 hours and one week. Participants will have their bags inspected for safety purposes upon arrival.
During detox and the first week in treatment, participants are not allowed to make any phone calls. Having personal phones or internet capable devices is prohibited.
iRecover’s addiction rehab center program provides treatment for most types of addiction disorders. Participants at our facilities are often treated concurrently for multiple substance abuse addictions and disorders. If you are wondering is marijuana addictive, keep in mind that an addictive behaviour can lead to other drug addictions. Once in our treatment program, our trained staff can help uncover and treat the reasons for the underlying addictive behaviours. Working through their dimensions of wellness during their addiction recovery with iRecover lays the foundation for a better life of sobriety.
In some instances, our nurse practitioner and/or psychiatrist may prescribe drugs to treat drug treatment as part of the drug detox program.
