First, clients will meet with a specialist to create an individualized treatment program. Sometimes, medical detoxification is the first step before entering the residential rehab for veterans. Detox is necessary when the body has become physically dependent upon substances like drugs or alcohol. Generally, detox takes five to seven days. During this time, clients are under the 24/7 care of addiction specialists, physicians, and mental health counselors, all of whom help them navigate and minimize withdrawal symptoms.
