Huntington Creek operates a detox unit designated for detoxification from sedative, stimulant drugs and/or opiate drugs. The Medical Director, Dr. Al Janerich,board certified by The American Board of Addiction Medicine since 1988 and has almost 30 years of experience in the field of addiction. He has designed detoxification protocols to help our clients ease their transition from active addiction to abstinence. Working under Dr. Janerich’s direction is a team of skilled nurses, Physician Assistant’s, and Registered Nurse Practitioners who will attend to the medical needs of clients at this level of care. We are staffed with Pennsylvania Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselors who have years of experience in the field of addiction treatment. They are complimented by a very dedicated group of Drug and Alcohol Treatment Technicians who also work directly with the clients. This country setting, coupled with an atmosphere of compassion and firmness, surrounded by people who understand since they have been there themselves, can be a very safe place to begin a road to recovery.
Do I need detox?
If you are abusing alcohol, using heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, pills or other drugs your body will go through withdrawals when you stop using them. Our experienced Medical team will closely monitor each resident and keep him/her as safe and comfortable as possible.
How Long is Detox?
Each person’s “situation” is different and important factors such as type and amount of drug(s) being used, length of time using and a persons age and health condition are important factors determining the length of stay. The average length of stay is 4-5 days for alcohol detox, 7-8 days for opiate detox and 10-12 days for benzodiazepine detox.
