Areas of Focus
Medical Detoxification Service

Hemet Valley Recovery Center is widely known for providing the best in acute medical detoxification services. Our medical doctors are recognized specialists in addiction medicine, both being certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). Aung Thu MD, ASAM is board certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine, and John Harsany MD, FASAM is a board certified internist and Addictionist.

Chronic Pain Program

Pain medication addiction treatment begins with medically managed detoxification designed to effectively treat withdrawal symptoms and protect from breakthrough pain. Traditional chemical dependency treatment is then supplemented by additional issue focused groups and techniques designed to create an alternative pain management treatment strategy to replace the use of narcotic analgesics. Alternative pain management methods are introduced while in chemical dependency treatment under the direction of the medical director.
