Meridian Detox ServicesMeridian’s detox units in Gainesville and Lake City provide evaluations and medically-supervised alcohol and opioid detoxification for those who are likely to experience significant withdrawal from alcohol, heroin and pain pills like hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine and codeine. The Meridian detox unit does not treat cocaine, marijuana or methamphetamine dependence. Alcohol and opioid detoxification services are relatively short term, with an emphasis on safe withdrawal, reducing discomfort and education to encourage movement along the treatment continuum. The choice to live drug-free is often a series of choices and relapses. Our Detox Team offers a non-judgmental approach to helping clients explore issues relating to their substance use and its consequences.
