Is Your Detox Facility Staffed By Medical Professionals?

During your detoxification, you will be supervised by a medical team. This is the same medical team that will be performing an initial assessment, so they can fully understand your needs and how to safely detox your body from drugs or alcohol.

What Makes Your Detox Facility Different?

Serenity at Summit focuses on detox treatment that’s personalized to your addiction. Our initial assessment will help our staff better understand you and your addiction and provide you with a personalized detox approach.

This detox usually includes holistic techniques because holistic treatment helps train the mind psychologically on how to deal with daily stressors. These are the stressors that would usually cause someone to use drugs or alcohol, but instead we show you how to holistically deal with these stressors without the use of drugs or alcohol.
