Support Systems Homes provides medically supervised detoxification services in a residential, non-hospital setting. The detoxification period is crucial, especially for those that have been drinking heavily for a long time.

As soon as detox clients feel ready, they may participate in our educational groups, individual counseling sessions, and group counseling sessions.
