Detoxification services are available for addicted individuals in Branford, Connecticut who need help coming off of drugs, which can be very difficult when someone has become physically and/or psychologically addicted to a drug or to alcohol.

In a professional Branford, CT. detoxification facility, detoxification services help the individual go through this process as safely as possible and provide the needed emotional assistance to get the person through detox without relapsing. Detoxification services are not drug rehab, but merely the first stage of a comprehensive drug rehab program that will further address root addiction issues so that the person can remain clean and sober for the long term.
