Detox is an essential first step on the road to recovery.  When you use drugs or alcohol for an extended period of time, dangerous and harmful toxins build up in your system.  The detoxification process works to eliminate these toxins and free you from your physiological dependence on alcohol or drugs.  Once you are free of the physiological addiction, your body and mind are prepared for the therapeutic work that follows in the next stage of treatment.



12 South Recovery partners with the most ethical, high-end detox and residential centers.  Our dedicated recovery professionals will assist you in finding the right detox that best fits your needs.  When you feel like it is finally time to change your life for the better, reach out to our caring staff 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

All of our detox and residential treatment partners specialize in identifying your biggest needs.  Programs differ based on a patient’s overall health, the types of substances used, the duration used and the amount used.  Comfort during the process is of the highest importance.  We insist on proper medical care, nutrition, a peaceful setting and expert staff to help you navigate through the withdrawal process.

It’s important to reiterate that detox is just the beginning of the drug rehab process, not the end.  A successful detox process is vital to your prospects for long-term recovery, especially since the time you spend in this phase of your recovery is the foundation for everything else that follows it.  Those who receive only detox support, with no other treatment, will almost always return to substance abuse - usually in the short term.  This is where 12 South Recovery comes in.  Our continuation program is built to give you the greatest chance of success.  Statistics have shown that the longer an individual stays in treatment, the better the chances are for their continued recovery.

Remember, addiction recovery is a process that requires full participation and effort.  But make no mistake, the effort is worth it!!  To get sober is to rediscover the world as you used to know it and yourself as you used to be; it is to remember why you ever believed life was worth living in the first place.  And it all starts with detox.
