What Sets Our OTC Medicine Detox Apart?

Licensed Therapists Dedicated to Providing Detox Support

Detox can often be the most challenging part of recovery. Therefore we have some of our best therapists providing psychological and emotional support throughout this difficult time.

Professional Medical Care In Our New Trailhead Facility

Unlike detoxification in a hospital surrounded by bright lights and white walls, our medical detox environment of care is provided in our brand-new Trailhead facility located on our 11-acre Colorado Springs Campus. It provides a relaxing & comfortable environment and caters to decreased stimuli.

A Smooth & Guided Transition Into Our Residential Program

Before leaving our medical detox, our nursing and detox therapists help prepare you for what to expect when transitioning into our residential and inpatient rehab program.

We know choosing to detox can feel both fulfilling and daunting. Let us provide you with the care you deserve.

A Personalized OTC Medicine Detox Plan

There is no one-size-fits-all detox plan, even for individuals who have abused the same substances. Within the first stages of our medical detox center in Colorado, we prepare a personalized OTC medicine detox plan influenced by the following:

Physical health
Mental health
The substance(s) consumed
The length of substance use
How often the substance(s) have been used
And more

Our Restorative OTC Medicine Detox Setting

Our newly built Trailhead Facility setting helps soothe withdrawals, provides psychological wellness, and makes the detox process less complicated when transitioning into our residential programming located on the same Colorado Springs Campus.

What Happens After OTC Medicine Detox?

Detoxing from OTC medicines is the first step toward recovery. However, the longer a person distances themselves from their last use, the greater chance of recovery. At Peaks Recovery Centers, the next step in our recovery process is transitioning into our inpatient residential rehab.
