COMFORTABLE, MEDICATED DETOX IN PRIVACY & LUXURY
Your drug addiction treatment program at The Bay begins with a comfortable, medicated detox in one of our private, luxury residences. Our doctor will do a full consultation following your admission, and will be on call during the entire detox phase. During this period you will receive 24-hour nursing care to manage any withdrawal symptoms you may experience. The detox phase usually lasts betwen three to five days, but may vary depending on the substance, after which you can begin to heal, and commence the treatment process of recovery.
Most of our guests commence individual therapy sessions during their detox period. These sessions are complimented with massage therapists, yoga, acupuncture, and other healthcare practitioners will regularly visit you to introduce themselves and discuss your program. As soon as your strength allows, further treatments will commence.

The Bay then engages our aftercare support program staying in contact with you offering support and therapy on a daily basis for as long as needed.
Drug Addiction is centred in the brain and ultimately affects the way a person behaves and feels on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. Addiction to substances is not limited to illicit drugs but includes medications prescribed by a doctor, to assist with chronic pain or anxiety.
These mind and mood-altering substances, ranging from illicit drugs such as methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and heroin, to legally prescribed Oxycontin, Valium, Sleeping Pills and Fentanyl, build a physical dependence within the human body causing serious withdrawal symptoms that if not managed correctly, can result in death.
