Sometimes the first step on the road to recovery is physical detoxification of the body from alcohol and/or other drugs. This process can be physically and emotionally stressful for the newly recovering person and worrisome for loved ones.
The highly trained medical staff at Community and Family Resources understand the detoxification process can be challenging. The Nursing Staff that monitor this process are supervised by our Medical Director and are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These experienced professionals initiate the healing process by providing medical supervision as well as the nurturing acceptance that is so crucial in the early stages of withdrawal.
The withdrawal process is ongoing as the recovering person moves through the initial stages of detoxification. Our Nursing Staff continue to provide monitoring, basic health care, and referral services when needed to all clients at all stages of recovery. The medical professionals, clinical team, and support staff at Community and Family Resources know that quality care is comprehensive care.
At Community and Family Resources we believe in joining with the recovering person and their family in the journey toward physical healing, emotional wellness, and hope.
CFR's Detoxification/Withdrawal Management services are available at our main Fort Dodge campus and at the Iowa City GuideLink Access Center.
