What Is Addiction?
Drug or alcohol addiction refers to a chronic dysfunction of the brain that affects the reward, motivation, and memory systems. It is a relapsing disorder that leads to compulsive behaviors that you find impossible to stop, even though they have negative consequences on all aspects of your life.
Substance abuse overwhelms your brain receptors. Your brain releases dopamine when it registers pleasure, including during drug or alcohol use. After a while, your brain begins to crave that powerful release of dopamine, leading to dependence on the substance.
Those with a substance use disorder may want to stop the addiction but find it impossible to do so without the right level of support. This begins with the detox process. At our rehab in Phoenix, we can offer the detox services and treatment you need.
Drug or Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Our Phoenix rehabs offer medical detox, which serves as the first step toward addiction recovery. We provide compassionate care and medical supervision to ensure that your detox is as comfortable and safe as possible. The residential rehab at our Phoenix center includes:
- Comprehensive assessment of needs
- 24-hour medically supervised care
- Medication-assisted detoxification services
- Individual counseling sessions
- Group therapy, family therapy and educational classes
- Mental health support
- Introduction to the recovery community (alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, etc.)
- Ongoing treatment/aftercare planning to ensure success in recovery
We understand that addiction can be a difficult thing to overcome, so we provide the care and guidance needed to begin the recovery process. Our treatment approaches and therapeutic modalities will help you recover from the physical and psychological aspects of addiction while also providing you with the tools and resources to maintain your sobriety in the long term. Our detox facilities in Phoenix are dedicated to helping individuals overcome their substance use disorder to live fulfilling lives.
The Detox Process
Detoxification is a medical process that eliminates drugs and alcohol from your body. This can be done in an outpatient setting, but many people with severe addictions need to attend inpatient treatment at a detox center for more intensive care. At Zenith Behavioral Health, we provide safe medically-supervised detox services in Phoenix, AZ.
Our staff includes licensed doctors, nurses, and treatment providers who provide 24/7 support during the detox process. We also have addiction specialists who provide evidence-based care tailored to your needs. Our team has years of experience treating substance use disorders and helping individuals through detox treatment in Phoenix safely and comfortably.
Understanding the Detox Process
The first step in any substance abuse treatment program is to eliminate the substance from your body. It is important not to attempt to go through this on your own but instead to turn to a center that offers medical detox in Phoenix.
Once you have built a dependence on a substance, your body does not remember how to function without it. If you stop using the substance, you can quickly begin experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Although each substance causes different symptoms, the most common ones, according to the National Institutes of Health, are:
- Increased or decreased heart rate
- Stomach cramps
- Muscle aches
Withdrawal symptoms can vary in intensity, depending on how long you have had the addiction and your regular dosage. Severe symptoms can lead you to relapse and can even put your life in danger.
If you want to break free from drug addiction, the best thing you can do is turn to substance abuse programs that provide medical detox services. At our drug rehab in Phoenix, our skilled and compassionate professionals can guide you through this difficult stage of addiction recovery.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
At our detox center in Phoenix, AZ, we believe MAT is one of the most effective methods for drug and alcohol abuse treatment. This evidence-based approach helps reduce cravings, minimize withdrawal symptoms, and prevent relapse.
The medical professionals at our inpatient facility will closely monitor your progress during detox to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the process. We also provide mental and behavioral health services to help you process the psychological aspects of addiction.
Medications prescribed during medically assisted detox are monitored by experienced doctors who specialize in addiction treatment, so you can be sure that your safety is our top priority. MAT gives individuals with substance use disorders a chance to successfully recover from their addictions and lead productive lives.
As you begin to detox during our inpatient rehab programs, you can also start delving into the underlying cause of your substance abuse. Regular access to professionals in the fields of mental and behavioral health will allow you to learn coping skills and gain insight into your psychological health.
At our Arizona detox centers, we also help those who struggle with other mental health issues besides addiction. Dual-diagnosis treatment requires treating both conditions at the same time. At our Phoenix detox center, you can get the therapy you need, as well as access to support groups that can offer guidance as you work through mental health concerns.
Our Admissions Process
We have a simple admissions process that allows individuals to start participating in addiction treatment quickly. The first step required at our Phoenix rehab is a full assessment. This assessment lets us understand the unique challenges you face, allowing us to provide personalized treatment that will offer you the best chance of long-term recovery.
The assessment will ask you about your medical history, length of use/use patterns, any limitations, and whether you have any co-occurring disorders. We will also want to know whether you have attempted treatment before. After the assessment, we will go through the approval process, where we can discuss payment options. We will also walk you through the paperwork necessary for admissions. Once the paperwork is in order, we can arrange for the day of your arrival at our detox center in Phoenix.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Detox on My Own?
It is never a good idea to go through the detoxification process alone. Many substances can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms that require quick medical assistance. This is the case, in particular, with alcohol. When you turn to a facility like ours, you can receive the medical attention to avoid serious health complications.
Patients who attempt detoxification alone often experience extreme medical and psychological symptoms that result in relapse. Relapsing after having started the detoxification process can potentially lead to an overdose. It’s best to receive care from a qualified team of professionals who are focused on your safety and recovery. If you are in the Phoenix area, we encourage you to tour our facility and explore how we help patients safely and successfully end their physical addiction.
