Withdrawal Management (Detox/Daytox)


Withdrawal management services, including detox and daytox services, provide short-term medical supervision and support to individuals who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms associated with their discontinued use of alcohol/other drugs. Medically supervised withdrawal management is important, as there are some serious health risks for clients coming off alcohol/other drugs. 

What services do we provide?

Withdrawal Management (Detox) provides medically supervised withdrawal from substances in a safe inpatient environment.

Mobile Withdrawal Management (Daytox) provides medically monitored withdrawal management and group-based support during the day for individuals who have a safe and stable home.

Both withdrawal management services provide:

  • Supportive counselling
  • Chemical dependency information
  • Daily exercise and relaxation sessions
  • Assessment
  • Referral to other programs and services

Who can access these services?

Individuals who are age 16 years and older.
