Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center

Social Detox

What is social detox?

Social detox is a short-term, non-medical treatment for drug and alcohol symptoms.  With social detox at Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center, the team provides care and monitoring during the withdrawal phase of detox.

By comparison, medical detox can include hospitalization that could alleviate the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Whether you choose medical or social detox to start your treatment, it’s only the first phase of the recovery process from addiction.

Am I a candidate for social detox?

The team at Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center conducts a comprehensive clinical and medical assessment to determine if social detox is the right choice for you.
They may consider you a candidate for social detox if you suffer from an addiction to drugs or alcohol and you want to start your sobriety without the aid of any medications. The team finds that social detox is highly effective for long-term sobriety.

They also recommend social detox for patients in need of a more cost-effective addiction treatment option.

However, if the team has concerns you may experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms during detox, they may recommend a medical detox program.

What can I expect during social detox?

You can expect attentive and compassionate care during social detox at Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center. The team provides you with a room and ongoing monitoring and support during your initial withdrawal symptoms.
In addition to monitoring and care, the team may also initiate your addiction therapy. That includes education about your addiction and the steps you need to take to support your recovery and prevent a relapse.

What happens after social detox?

Treatment after social detox may depend on the severity of your addiction and any underlying mental health or physical conditions that may affect your recovery. Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center offers many addiction treatment options, including:

  • Residential treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Day treatment
  • General outpatient care
  • Sober living

No matter what style of treatment you need, you can expect the same compassionate care and support you need to recover from your addiction. At Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center, the team customizes your treatment plan so that you get the best outcomes for long-term sobriety.

Wasatch Recovery Treatment Center uses a combination of the traditional Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program plus a therapeutic community model to support your recovery and reduce your risk of relapse.
