Alcohol and drug detox programs can be difficult to find. Though detoxification is some times part of standard alcohol and drug treatment programs this is not always the case which is why we have provided this detox center locator.
You may be wondering, why isn't drug detox or alcohol detox simply a component to every rehab center? Probably the most common reason that more treatment programs don't have a detox component is that withdrawal from alcohol and many drugs needs to be medically monitored to be safe. The detox process therefore requires medical personnel including nurses and doctors who would not otherwise be on a program's treatment staff.
