Drug Detox & Rehab


The Drug Detox and Rehabilitation Program at Northpoint Washington is an all-inclusive experience that analyzes and treats every aspect of drug addiction, from the physical dependence that causes drug withdrawal to the underlying psychological conditions that contribute to substance use disorder. Through a combination of medical intervention, individualized therapy, and holistic treatments, your body can be healed while you are equipped to live a functional, healthy life free from the degradations of drug addiction.


Northpoint Washington is an inpatient facility for adults suffering from substance use disorder. The standard program lasts 28 days for residential care and will be followed by a specialized outpatient treatment strategy to help the patient transition into a sober lifestyle.


Northpoint Washington is characterized by the highly individual nature of our program and the wide range of available drug treatments that can be adapted to match the requirements of each case. From the very first day, specialized evaluations will allow doctors, nurses, and counselors to cater an individual treatment plan that includes a combination of medical intervention, holistic treatments, and psychological therapy.

Another important component of drug rehab at Northpoint is a series of integrated activities in the local community that allow patients to put their progress to the test in the real world. Through community assimilation activities, each patient comes face-to-face with the triggers and cravings of daily life and can learn to overcome the challenges that await during a lifetime of recovery.


Does this sound like the right program for you? Although achieving long-term sobriety will not be easy or quick, we can give you everything you need to begin a long and successful life in addiction recovery. If you’re ready to begin the recovery journey, your Day One at Northpoint Washington will look something like this


Drug detox can last anywhere from five days to three weeks (or more) depending on your substance of choice. This phase will vary greatly from one individual to another, but it is safe to say that drug withdrawal is an unpleasant experience for everyone.

Drug withdrawal is your body’s process of eradicating its physical dependence to illicit substances. The withdrawal side effects can range widely from flu-like symptoms and vomiting to depression, anxiety, and even seizures. One advantage of completing detox in an inpatient facility like Northpoint is medical intervention during detox.

As drug withdrawal symptoms set in, a team of doctors and nurses will oversee the process and prescribe a combination of prescription medicines and therapeutic activities to help soothe and alleviate the withdrawal symptoms. These medications may address both the physical and emotional aspects of withdrawal. For example, opioid users may be prescribed Opioid Replacement Therapy (ORT) prescriptions while stimulant users may better benefit from antidepressants.


While in-depth drug rehab treatment may not be possible during the first days of detox, you will be transitioned into rehabilitation as withdrawal symptoms dissipate. When you are ready, rehab will consist of a rigorous 56-hour per week treatment schedule.

Drug rehab at Northpoint includes a wide variety of treatments from advanced dual-diagnosis and neurofeedback therapy to holistic treatments and classic counseling. Your treatment schedule will vary from day to day as your counseling team analyzes your personal battle with addiction and determines the best methods for you to overcome it. Some drug treatments you’ll have access to at our facility include:

  • Local community activities and assimilation
  • One-on-one counseling
