Confidential, Patient-Focused Medical Detox Campus

Buena Vista offers caring, medically supervised drug and alcohol detoxification services for patients suffering from the disease of addiction. Patients must undergo a medical detox program to rid the body of any chemical toxins, alcohol and drugs before addiction recovery begins in earnest.

As an inpatient medical detox facility in Arizona, we provide medically monitored detox under the guidance of our board-certified physicians and highly qualified team of nurses. Our mission is to supervise our patients through a safe and as comfortable as possible drug and alcohol abuse detoxification process.


It can feel impossible to stop drinking once an addiction has formed, and trying to do so on your own can be dangerous or even deadly. The intensity and potential dangers of an alcohol detox depend on many factors, including:

The amount of alcohol you abuse.

How long have you been misusing alcohol.

Your physical characteristics and make-up

Any existing medical conditions

You can minimize your withdrawal symptoms by choosing Buena Vista’s medically supervised alcohol detox in Arizona. Our specialists can help ease any pain, discomfort, or intense cravings you feel during the process. Depending on the severity and history of alcohol abuse, some of the withdrawal symptoms you experience may include:

  • Delirium tremens (DTs)
  • Seizures
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Hallucinations
  • Tremors (shakes)
  • Anxiety
  • Extreme perspiration
  • Agitation
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Insomnia


There are many benefits of seeking treatment at a professional alcohol detox center instead of going at it alone, including:

Reduced withdrawal symptoms

Less intense alcohol cravings

A safer detox processes.

Minimized risk of ongoing alcohol abuse or relapse

Improved ability to think clearly and focus on recovery.

Without medical assistance in the detox process, you may become more likely to drink to reduce painful withdrawal symptoms or intense cravings. At worst, you may drink excessively to feel better faster, increasing the risk of an overdose.


Alcohol has a depressive effect on the body and brain function. It physically changes the way your nerves communicate with one another. With extended and excessive use, your body constantly adjusts to the presence of alcohol, requiring your brain to work harder, more frequently.

When you suddenly quit or significantly reduce your alcohol consumption, your system goes into shock as it frantically tries to re-balance the chemicals in your brain on its own, causing withdrawal symptoms.

Depending on how much you drank and how long, mild symptoms can occur within six hours after your last drink. By 12 to 48 hours post-drink, you may start experiencing more serious symptoms. Severe and life-threatening symptoms can persist for up to 72 hours from your last drink.

The length of stay for this treatment ranges from two to 10 days, depending on the complexity of the detoxification interventions. Interventions in our inpatient medical detox campus in Arizona include completing an initial assessment, monitoring the patient’s detoxification, and implementing a health teaching component in the immediate post-withdrawal period.
