Types of Detox

When it comes to getting help with an addiction to opiates, the first step is always detox. Basically, it’s the process of waiting for the body to pass opiates from the body’s systems so that sobriety can be obtained. But, because detox from addictive substances can be dangerous and even life-threatening, medical detox is available. And, here at Mountainview Recovery, we offer an outpatient detox program for those struggling with opiate dependence or addiction.
