Detox Facility Design Feasibility Study

Bernstein & Associates, Architects recently completed a detox facility design feasibility study for a hospital in New York.

The project involved the renovation of an existing, inpatient, detox facility within a hospital.

Detox, short for detoxification, is the first step of the drug or alcohol abuse treatment process. Abstinence is a prerequisite for recovery. Detox is the process of the body becoming drug free and therefore abstinent. Withdrawal is a natural part of detox. It is a necessary process that the body goes through when it is dependent on a substance. Alcohol Detoxification treatment, includes abstinence from alcohol in a controlled environment and close monitoring of vital signs and any withdrawal symptoms.
