Inpatient Rehabilitation for Drug & Alcohol Abuse in Virginia

Can a person go to treatment if they have not gone through detox?

In most circumstances, an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program will require that a patient has been through detox before they enter the drug rehab center. The main reason for this requirement is to ensure they are not going through any difficult withdrawals while they are in rehabilitation. Drug withdrawals will prevent a patient from succeeding in treatment, and moving forward with a successful program.
