About Our Detox Program: The goal of our Alcohol Detox Program is to manage the physical changes that occur in the brain and body after repeated alcohol use while providing the highest degree of comfort and support. Without medical supervision, a person suffering from alcohol dependency who suddenly discontinues use on their own can experience extremely serious and life threatening side effects, including but not limited to dehydration, vomiting, abnormal heart rhythms and a condition called delirium tremens. Delirium tremens is the most severe form of alcohol withdrawal causing a rapid onset of confusion, hallucinations, elevated body temperature, seizures and cardiovascular collapse. Delirium tremens is a medical emergency with a high mortality rate, making alcohol detoxification under the care of a qualified detoxification medical professional absolutely essential.
A Safer Detox: The Landon Institute offers our medically monitored Alcohol Detox Program that is closely supervised by physicians specializing in detox. Our team of physicians have more than 35 years of experience, and are deeply experienced solely in managing the symptoms of withdrawal using the latest evidence-based approaches.

Why Detox Under Medical Care: It’s imperative to seek the help for detox, because detox can be painful and even life-threatening in certain cases. The discomfort of withdrawal is one of the primary reasons people leave treatment early or put off treatment altogether. At the Landon Institute, your successful detox will begin with our comprehensive assessments, followed by proper medication. It’s with this whole recovery approach we have found astonishing success for our patients.
What to Expect: Our treatment team will conduct comprehensive assessments to determine the most effective detox protocols based on your alcohol history, medical history and individual needs. Our physicians utilize a wide range of safe and effective medications to help manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Most of our clients finish drug detox within 3 to 7 days. However, to create a successful outcome for each patient, detox is finely tailored to each patient's own unique, specific needs.
