Why Do I Need Detox?
The Journey of Recovery Begins with Detox.
Medically Monitored Detox is Safer
First and foremost, it is much safer to undergo detox in a medically monitored facility like Mayflower Detox. While it is possible for some people to successfully stop using drugs or alcohol on their own, a Medically Monitored ATS Detox program can prevent fatal side effects and reduce the intensity of severe withdrawal symptoms.
Detox Helps Patients Maintain Focus on Their Recovery
Another reason that completing detox is important is because it can help patients maintain focus during rehab and get the most out of their therapy and treatment programs. Working through recovery is a challenging process for anyone, however the chances of relapse are significantly higher for someone stuck in the grip of withdrawal symptoms.
Detox Can Identify and Treat Co-Occurring Disorders
People with substance abuse issues often have other co-occurring disorders that can be masked by their addiction. Patients with mental health disorders such as severe depression or anxiety can be at higher risk for suicide after stopping drug use.
The medical and clinical staff at Mayflower Detox is trained to diagnose and treat co-occurring disorders – particularly mental health issues. Our team looks for these co-occurring disorders during the initial intake process and continues to look for them as they may become more evident once the mask of addiction and withdrawal is removed

Medically Monitored Detox Provides a Safer and More Comfortable Detox Experience
Most experts agree that the most effective environment for detoxification from drugs or alcohol is what is known as “medically monitored detox” (this is also known as ATS Detox ). In a medically monitored detox facility, the patient detoxes under the care of medical and mental health professionals who increase both their safety and comfort. Both of these factors have been shown to help increase the chances of a successful recovery.
There are several elements to a medically monitored detox. Some or all of these may be part of your individual treatment plan. These include:
Medications to mitigate the risks of severe withdrawal and/or withdrawal complications
Nutritional support and physical exercise to promote early recovery.
Psychological and behavioral counseling and support.
Supervision by a trained clinical team to manage any emergencies that arise.
