Alcohol abuse affects more Americans than all other forms of drug abuse combined. And despite its status in our society – legal, accepted, available everywhere – alcohol use is the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
If you are struggling with alcohol use disorder, often known as “alcoholism,” you are not alone. In fact, studies show that as many as one in eight American adults meet the diagnostic criteria for alcohol use disorder. Among those abusing alcohol, some individuals are genetically predisposed to have a higher risk of developing an alcohol use disorder while others may inherit alcoholic tendencies.

The Importance of Efficient & Safe Detox
It can be difficult to find treatment for an alcohol problem, not to mention the cost, disruption, and stigma that comes with needing help. Master Center was designed to solve these challenges by offering urgent detox assistance as well as long-term, sobriety-sustaining treatment.
Getting sober from alcohol is one of the most dangerous detox processes of all. Mild to moderate alcohol withdrawal can include tremors, anxiety, insomnia, severe nausea with vomiting. Serious withdrawal can lead to dangerously rapid heartbeat, seizures, hallucinations, and a life-threatening condition called Delirium Tremens.
At our Hampton, Virginia treatment center and other locations, we provide physician-led addiction treatment programs that are evidence-based, efficient, and covered by most insurance plans. With compassion, we work to ensure detox treatment is tailored to each patient’s unique needs and ensure patients retain dignity throughout the process. In addition, Master Center continually monitors patients during detox to minimize discomfort and improve outcomes.
Our Medical Detox Process
Master Center in Hampton, Virginia is committed to providing effective detox treatment programs for substance abuse to increase recovery outcomes and improve the health of the community. Our individualized detox plans, which are typically covered by insurance, include the following:
- Our team in Hampton, Virginia first stabilizes the patient medically using a carefully chosen medication, such as diazepam (Valium) or chlordiazepoxide (Librium). These medications suppress and control withdrawal symptoms and ensure that the patient can sleep comfortably and by suppressing nausea and vomiting, maintain good nutrition and hydration.
- As the initial sedative medication is tapered, we introduce secondary medications as appropriate to further soften the detoxification process and to promote ongoing sobriety.
- As soon as the patient is feeling well enough, we initiate a unique plan of coordinated, multidisciplinary treatment based on individual characteristics, past experience, and needs.
