- Medically monitored detoxification
Medically monitored detoxification services are available at our residential drug rehab centers under the supervision of our consulting physician and professional nursing staff. Each patient is given a complete physical and a lab profile is obtained. A team of nurses provides 24-hour medical observation and assessment services. Medications to minimize withdrawal symptoms are used as part of our treatment regimen when necessary. If there are complications, the patient is referred to a local acute care hospital.

Valley Hope also provides day or partial care drug rehab for persons suffering from the disease of addiction. This level of care is offered seven days a week and allows the patient to maintain close contact with his or her support in the community and home setting.
