Detox Program

Many people need professional help to end substance use in a safe way that promotes long-term recovery. By participating in detox, you can protect your physical well-being and navigate the challenges of withdrawal in a supportive setting with trained professionals. 

Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital offers an excellent on-site detox program. In our detox program, our psychiatrists and nurses follow evidence-based protocols and provide 24/7 monitoring and care for adolescents, adults, and seniors. Our goal with our detox program is to help you end substance use safely and take those first critical steps on your path to personal well-being. 

We provide focused treatment for adolescents, adults, and seniors who are struggling with addictions to the following substances: 

  • Alcohol 
  • Benzodiazepines 
  • Opioids 
  • Prescription drugs 

During your time in detox, our staff will work to ensure that you are physically safe and as comfortable as possible. After completing detox, you may transition directly to our inpatient program so that you can continue working toward your short- and long-term wellness goals.  

Adolescents, adults, and seniors usually participate in our detox program for about seven to 10 days. However, the length of your stay will depend on your own needs and progress. Patients may participate in therapeutic programming during detoxification if they are able to do so. In Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital’s detox program, each person receives personalized care that is designed to meet their needs and prepare them for the next step of their treatment journey. 

Inpatient Programming for Adolescents

Our adolescent inpatient program offers a supportive and nurturing environment for young patients ages 11-17 who require comprehensive, age-appropriate care. In this program, young people can receive continuous support and the therapies they need during this critical stage of their growth and development. Many of the adolescents who come to us for help are in crisis and need round-the-clock supervision to stabilize and regain a sense of safety. 

The typical length of stay in our adolescent inpatient program ranges from five to 13 days, but each young person’s length of stay depends on their individual needs. We treat a range of mental health challenges that are common in adolescence, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other behavioral health concerns. 

In our inpatient program for adolescents, we also provide care for young people who have addictions to substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, opioids, and benzodiazepines. Treatment for adolescents who have addictions focuses on substance use education, coping skills, and relapse prevention strategies.  

Our comprehensive program for young people includes daily group therapies that are specifically designed for adolescents. In groups, patients can engage in discussions on topics that are relevant to their age group and receive support from their peers. Patients in our adolescent inpatient program can also receive medication management services, basic medical care, and 24/7 nursing support. 

Inpatient Programming for Adults

For adults and seniors who may benefit from round-the-clock assistance and intensive, daily therapies, our inpatient program can be an ideal option. If you need personalized support in a safe and welcoming setting, we think that you’ll find what you’re looking for in our Arizona inpatient program for adults and seniors.  

The typical duration of our inpatient program is five to 13 days, although a person’s exact length of stay depends on their needs. We treat a variety of behavioral health concerns in our inpatient program for adults and older adults, including: 

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Bipolar disorder

Our team embraces the belief that each person has the power to improve their health and find their path to wellness, no matter what challenges they might have faced.
