If you or someone you love has a substance abuse problem, the detox center at Allure is here to help. We deliver safe, compassionate, and highly individualized care on a medical basis. This means that clients can continue to live at home, even as they detox from opiates, heroin, benzos, or alcohol. Read on to learn more about who we are and why we’re one of the best detox facilities in the industry.
There was a time when a detox center treated addicts like criminals. This was before we understood addiction properly, when it was perceived as a moral failing and not a disease. In those days, a typical detox center was a locked unit. And whenever a patient complained of discomfort, personnel called it “drug seeking behavior.”
In short, detox was a pretty miserable place to be. Patients often emerged from them confused, angry, and unwilling to work toward recovery. And even when they did achieve long term recovery, it was often in spite of the detox facility, not because of it. Allure Detox was founded to help correct this exact problem.
Allure embodies a new way of thinking about substance abuse. This new thinking focuses on the physical causes of addiction, especially on the role brain chemistry plays. Our care team attacks addiction at its root, with prescription drugs that help to resolve the chemical imbalances that hinder recovery.
Not every detox center is created equal. There are hundreds of facilities out there, but Allure stands out from the crowded treatment scene. We stand out because our methods work. And they work in whatever way best fits our clients’ specific needs, not by forcing this or that way-of-life on them.
Addiction is a perplexing disease. From the outside looking in, it can seem like a terrible form of insanity. Addiction breeds confusion in both the user and their loved ones alike, as the entire family begins to collapse under the weight of its suffering. It’s this confusion that must be eradicated first, before the addict can begin to recover. We understand the true nature of addiction, and our detox center can provide the clarity you need.
