When you stop using drugs or alcohol, you could experience some form of withdrawal because your body physically adjusted to a certain volume of these dangerous substances. Withdrawal symptoms from drugs and alcohol can occur over several days, and be painfully intense. Alcohol and benzodiazepines withdrawal symptoms in particular can potentially threaten your life.
For a safe, comfortable withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, Recovery Centers of America (RCA) provides Acute Treatment Services (ATS).

Guiding the ATS process starts with a physical assessment to determine your needs, followed by medical management or monitoring that last 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until your body is free of harmful substances. Once you complete ATS, you can transition to the next level of care of ongoing treatment of post-acute withdrawal, Clinical Stabilization Services or CSS.
