White Deer Run York

York’s Leading Addiction Detox Program

At White Deer Run of York, we help individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues build a strong foundation for long-term recovery.

About Withdrawal

More About Withdrawal

When you have been abusing alcohol or another drug for an extended period of time, your body starts to adjust to the presence of that substance. Then, when you then stop using it, you become susceptible to experiencing a series of uncomfortable symptoms as your body readjusts to functioning without it.

This process is known as withdrawal. Depending on the substance that you have been using, as well as the length and extent of that use, withdrawal can be extremely unpleasant. These symptoms can also increase your chance of relapsing, since using again can make withdrawal symptoms dissipate.

In order to manage withdrawal properly, and to provide the best chance of avoiding relapse, it is helpful to receive detoxification services. In a specialized detox treatment center, medical staff can monitor progress and administer medications to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms in a safe and effective manner.

About Our Detox Program

White Deer Run of York’s Detox Program for Drug & Alcohol Addiction in Pennsylvania

At White Deer Run of York, we are pleased to offer comprehensive detox programming at our Davies Drive location in York, Pennsylvania. With an extensive history of delivering successful medically monitored detox services, we are able to provide caring and compassionate treatment that is designed to make the withdrawal process as safe and comfortable as possible. Our detox program can benefit individuals who have been abusing a number of difference substances, including the following:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opioids (prescription painkillers and heroin)

Our detox program is available to men and women age 18 and older. The typical length of stay in this program is five days, but the actual amount of time that you spend in programming can vary depending on your specific needs. Medical care is offered on an ongoing basis so as to ensure your safety through the duration of your time in programming. You will meet with a certified registered nurse practitioner (CRNP) upon admission and then as needed for follow-up services. You will also meet with licensed practical nurses (LPNs) on a daily basis who will monitor your health through the provision of skilled nursing care.

Medication management services are also offered on an as-needed basis. Your need for these services will be assessed upon admission and then further reviewed throughout your time in treatment. While there are no psychiatry services available within the detox program, all medications are prescribed by a CRNP and administered by LPNs.
