Drug Detoxification Program in Williamsburg, PA

Detoxification is often the first step in the substance abuse recovery journey. Cove Forge Behavioral Health offers a comprehensive detox program for adults.

Detox Program Overview

At Cove Forge Behavioral Health System, located in Williamsburg, Pennsylvania, we offer an inpatient Non-Hospital detoxification program that is designed to help individuals safely withdraw from physically addicting drugs, such as alcohol, opioids, and sedative-hypnotics. The detox program at our treatment center is monitored by medical staff and includes 24-hour nursing supervision. The typical length of stay in our detox program is between 3 and 5 days. However, the actual length of an individual’s stay will be customized and may vary depending on his or her specific needs.

Medication-Assisted Detoxification

Medication-assisted detox is offered on an individualized basis when appropriate. When this occurs, certain medications may be implemented in order to assist in providing comfort during the withdrawal process. These medications, which include Buprenorphine, however, are only used in detox and are not offered for maintenance purposes once the detoxification process is complete.

Therapies & Services

Throughout their time spent in detox at our treatment center, individuals will have the opportunity to engage in a number of different therapeutic interventions.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions at our Williamsburg-based treatment center are conducted by one of our detox counselors within 24 hours of an individual’s admission into programming. After that first session, all subsequent individual sessions in the detox program will be held on an as-needed basis while he or she remains in detox.
