Drug & Alcohol Detoxification
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

IOP in Pennsylvania is appropriate for patients in residential recovery facilities that have been diagnosed with addiction.

Doctors and addiction specialists at BioCare Recovery monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system.
