Is medical detox right for me?
What to Expect In Our Medical Detox Program
Before medical detox, we assess each patient’s drug and alcohol use, physical and mental state and any co-occurring disorders to develop a complete treatment plan.
Patients at The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper detox in quiet rooms and receive 24-hour medical support, medications to manage withdrawal symptoms as medically appropriate and nutritious meals to strengthen health. They’ll also begin individual counseling sessions with their licensed therapist.

FAQs About Our Medical Detox Program
How long is medical detox?
The duration of medical detox depends on the substance used, withdrawal symptoms and physical health. Most clients complete medically supervised detox in 5–7 days.
Can I detox at home?
We do not recommend detoxing at home. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable and demotivating, leading to relapse. In particular, alcohol and opioids have withdrawal symptoms that can be fatal without immediate medical attention.
Does medical detox work?
Yes, 24/7 medical supervision ensures a successful drug or alcohol detox. However, medical detox is only the beginning of addiction treatment; you’ll continue with additional treatment and counseling to stay on the path to recovery.
Will I receive methadone, suboxone, etc., during detox?
The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as medically appropriate. Your clinical team will determine your needs and eligibility for MAT.
How can I pay for medical detox?
Insurance may pay for some or all of medical detox. Without insurance, The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper can discuss private payment options with you.
Will I lose my job if I attend medical detox?
Several laws are in place to protect employees when they participate in medical detox and rehab.
