The Charlotte Freedom Detox Team

Here for You 24/7

The withdrawal process can seem daunting and uncomfortable, so much so that it’s often the reason why those with alcohol or drug addictions are hesitant to fully commit to getting clean, even if they want to and know it’s what’s best for them. Freedom Detox addresses this uncertainty and fear with our detox services in Charlotte. Our individualized care in a clinical setting provides a private space for you to detox, while still allowing our team of medical professionals to monitor your status and be on hand should any issues arise.
