Detox

Detox is a set of interventions meant to safely monitor and assist an individual through safe withdrawal from alcohol or drugs – seeking to minimize the physical harm caused by the abuse of substances and prevent future damage. We offer 24-hour care, receiving, and referrals primarily from self-admissions, ER referrals, and law enforcement. Stays are typically 12-72 hours. CMMHC staff offer information and referrals to treatment services and resources to support continued care.

Our Detox services are located in St. Cloud. The MN Department of Human Services and the Department of Health license CMMHC as a residential Detox facility.
