You are ready to take action and change your life. Detox is when your body processes and eliminates waste from harmful substances, such as drugs and alcohol, from your body. Individuals going through detox typically experience withdrawal symptoms, as the body learns to cope with no longer having addictive substances in your system.

Detox is unique to everyone, and it is unsafe to do on your own without proper medical supervision. We understand how you feel, and will meet you where you are at in the process. American’s medical detox is step one. Our licensed physicians monitor you 24 hours a day, and provide you with medication to offset withdrawal symptoms. These medications and supervision will help you safely detox from the substances you are currently addicted to.

While detox is different for each client, it is generally expected the spend the first two days being closely monitored by our medical staff. Day three, as the fog begins to clear, we continue to monitor and medicate. With over 40 hours a week of group and individual counseling that takes place at our South Carolina detox center, all clients in detox have the option to utilize these services.

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. 24 hours a day, every day of the year, we have medical staff here to assist you with whatever you need. We are here to help you get through the clouds, because behind them, the sun is always shining.
