Additionally, we offer a variety of aftercare programs and sober living options that provide continued support.

Addiction Explained

Brain imaging studies show changes in the areas of the brain that relate to judgment, decision making, learning, memory, and behavioral control.


Everyone has a different experience with detox. Our detox process helps addicted people get personalized treatment and help them in the process of recovery.

Paying for Detox

We take many insurance plans that provide addiction services before the deductible is met, which can help to significantly reduce costs.

The Importance of Detox

Detox is an important and necessary stage of treatment. Completion of a detox program is required entry into rehab. At Detox West Tennessee, our highly-skilled medical and psychiatric staff lead each of our detox programs. We deliver our programs based on the latest evidence, research, and understanding in addiction recovery and mental healthcare.

Throughout your stay here at the center, our trained clinicians will monitor your health and well-being around-the-clock. SAMHSA reports that around-the-clock supervision and support significantly improve detox program completion and success rates.

What We Offer

During detox in Memphis, TN, we offer detox programs for anyone struggling with substance dependence and addiction. Addiction, also known as substance use disorder (SUD), is a complex, chronic, and progressive condition. The longer a person with SUD goes without help, the worse their condition becomes. SUD disrupts all areas of life. Many of those struggling face job and relationship loss, financial problems, legal issues, and poor physical and mental health.

Our aim here at the center is to help you get started on the road to recovery. A successful recovery journey begins with a medically supervised detoxification program. Detoxification refers to eliminating all traces of drugs or alcohol from the body before a person enters formal rehabilitation.

At our center, we offer detox programs for the following SUDs.

Comprehensive Assessment

Before entering a detox program at Detox West Tennessee, we will carry out an in-depth physical and mental health assessment. The assessment lets us determine the safest, most appropriate course of action to help you recover. Your history of substance misuse and your state of mental and physical health play an important role in designing your treatment program.

Our expert staff will monitor your health and well-being throughout your stay at our center and provide you with 24/7 medical supervision. Monitoring and medical supervision allow us to track your progress and let you feel as safe and comfortable as possible during this vulnerable time.

What is the Definition of Addiction?

Addiction is a physical and mental health issue characterized by a compulsive need to use a substance. When addiction happens, the person affected feels compelled to find and consume the drug.

It is vital to recognize the signs of addiction in yourself or a loved one. Treatment is available, and recovery is possible. The earlier that you seek treatment, the greater your chances of recovery.

Signs of Addiction

You or a loved one may be struggling with addiction if:

  • You prioritize finding and taking drugs over other areas of your life
  • You steal, beg, or borrow money to feed your substance use
  • You lie to others about your behavior and whereabouts
  • You deny others’ concerns about your behavior
  • You have tried to stop using a drug but have failed
  • You experience withdrawal symptoms
  • You experience a decline in your physical and mental health

If you recognize any of the above in yourself or someone you love, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Early treatment can prevent further physical and psychological damage. If you decide to reach out for help, compassionate care is available here at Detox West Tennessee.

We understand that accepting and admitting that there is a problem can be difficult. Still, the benefits of asking for help far outweigh the consequences of not seeking help at all.

The Importance of Professional Treatment

Addiction recovery is by no means easy. When we stop using substances that we have been misusing for a long time, the body must undergo the necessary but challenging detoxification process.

Detoxification creates a broad set of withdrawal symptoms, which can overwhelm even the most emotionally resilient. When a person with substance dependence stops using, withdrawal symptoms come on within 6 -12 hours of their last use. Withdrawal usually takes between two and three weeks. In some cases, mild withdrawal symptoms can persist for up to 18 months.

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Intense drug cravings
  • Hopelessness
  • Despair
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations

Withdrawal symptoms are the leading cause of relapse. The symptoms can be so severe and debilitating that a person trying to abstain from a substance will feel compelled to use it again. This is known as relapse and poses a significant health risk.

When we abstain from drug use, our tolerance decreases. We can longer handle it at the dose we once could. Some of those who relapse are unaware of their reduced tolerance and ultimately overdose.

Overdose requires immediate medical attention because it can be fatal. Overdose is one of the leading causes of substance-related death worldwide. At our center, we prevent the risk of relapse and overdose by supporting and monitoring clients around-the-clock throughout treatment. Our centers are 100% free of illegal drugs, and anyone attempting to use or obtain them will be asked to leave.

Compassionate Support

At Detox West Tennessee, we support you with care and compassion on your path to recovery. We help you manage and overcome the difficult withdrawal phase of recovery by offering medical supervision and mental health monitoring.

You do not need to go through withdrawal alone. With support and non-judgmental care, we help each client feel as safe and comfortable as possible throughout their stay at our center.

At our center, we are sensitive to the complexities of addiction. While addiction is considered a medical condition, we understand that it also has roots in our past traumatic experiences.

Our staff takes a trauma-informed approach to care. Our comprehensive assessment informs us about your history of mental health so that we can provide the safest treatment for your specific needs.

Who Can Benefit From Detox Programs at Detox West Tennessee?

Detox programs at Detox West Tennessee are suitable for anyone struggling with substance use disorder. Addiction can affect anybody, regardless of your background, culture, and socioeconomic status. Still, we understand that some groups within the population face a greater risk of substance-related issues than others.

For example, members of the LGBT community report much higher substance misuse rates and SUD than the general population. Senior citizens require specialized care for their particular circumstances. College students also face unique challenges regarding their mental and behavioral health and substance misuse.

At Detox West Tennessee, we do not judge or discriminate. We treat each client as a unique individual with their own specific life experiences and circumstances. As such, our approach to treatment focuses on getting to know the client on a personal level.

We aim to make your time in detox as smooth as possible. One way of doing that is by acknowledging your experience and standing by you as a source of compassionate, non-judgmental support.
