Inpatient: Detox


The first step toward recovery from your drug or alcohol addiction is to make the choice to ask for help. It’s a brave decision, and it’s the right one. At Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, we’re here to help you get better.

Your path to recovery from addiction will take time and it will be difficult. Our evidence-based treatment process gives you the personalized care and support you need, when and how you need it. You’ll have a team of addiction specialists on your side, including fellowship-trained internal medicine doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, nurses and more.

Everyone experiences addiction differently. We’ll work with you to find the type of care you need to get well. Depending on your circumstances, you may need inpatient or residential care as part of your treatment plan.

What is inpatient addiction care?

When you first come to a Linden Oaks facility as a new patient, you’ll complete a comprehensive behavioral health assessment. This includes your medical and psychiatric history, as well as information about your addiction. We’ll use the results from this assessment to build a treatment plan that’s customized for you.

You may need inpatient care as part of your treatment plan. This is the highest level of care we offer at our Linden Oaks treatment facilities. Inpatient addiction care may be the best fit if any of these apply to you:


  • Your doctor says you need medical stabilization of your drug or alcohol addiction
  • You need intensive symptom management as part of your addiction treatment
  • Your safety is at risk outside of a structured environment


The first step toward recovery is getting the harmful substances out of your system. This process is called detoxification, or detox.

Part of your addiction may be physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. If you’ve tried to quit drugs or alcohol in the past, you may have experienced withdrawal symptoms. These make it a lot harder to beat addiction alone.

At Linden Oaks, we provide treatment for withdrawal symptoms while you’re going through the detox process. You’ll detox under the care of a psychiatrist and an internal medicine physician, depending on your overall health. Your plan may include medication and various types of support to help you manage the withdrawal-related side effects.


Support after addiction treatment

Once you’ve finished your detox or residential stay, you may need follow-up outpatient care that could include partial hospitalization (full-day), intensive outpatient programming (half-day) or individual therapy on a regular basis.

Your recovery from addiction is a challenge that may last a lifetime, but you’ll never be alone. Through Linden Oaks, you’ll learn new ways to cope with life’s challenges without turning to drugs or alcohol. 

Support groups, in addition to outpatient programs, can be powerful allies during this process. These groups give you a chance to share your stories, learn from others’ stories and find new ways to handle difficult situations.

Some of the support groups we work with include:
