If you or someone you know needs immediate help with drug or alcohol detoxification, the caring professionals at Merritt Peralta Institute (MPI) for Chemical Dependence Treatment can help. We have the teams and experience to help you or a loved one withdraw safely in a confidential hospital program.
Because acute detoxification is a serious medical process that can take three to five days, MPI's highly trained staff carefully monitor and support each person’s progress. We are certified to use the most current medications to help manage a variety of withdrawal symptoms and ensure safe detoxification. Medically supported detoxification allows you to withdraw more comfortably and helps you maintain sobriety.
For many people, detoxification is the first step in recovering from addiction. The admitting doctor and our multidisciplinary teams of licensed nurses and therapists work with each person on a full recovery plan.
For most people, rehabilitation treatment is the next step after detoxification. Many people benefit most by staying in the hospital to start rehabilitation in a supportive treatment program. Others leave the hospital and attend recovery programs as an outpatient. We offer a range of rehabilitation treatment options to help you best achieve your recovery goals.
