Social Setting Detoxification

Anuvia’s Detoxification Program provides services 24/7/365 days per year to clients ages 18 and up. It is located at the Samuel Billings Center at 429 Billingsley Road in Charlotte, 28211. Detox provides a safe place to withdraw from alcohol and drugs without having to go to a hospital. During the detoxification stay, clients will gain helpful information regarding detoxification, receive an introduction to self-help groups, and work with a client manager to identify resources to support a strong recovery program. Clients in detox are offered an assessment during their stay and recovery options are discussed.

What you should bring to detox:

  1. $1 bills or quarters for the vending machines.
  2. All medications that you are taking.
  3. Only alcohol-free toiletries.  Any toiletries with alcohol will be held until discharge and returned. If you don’t have toiletries, we provide them. (soap, shampoo, deodorant, razors, lotion, etc.).
  4. Bring clothes for 4-5 days.  As the building temperatures vary and persons experiencing withdrawal may have hot and/or cold extremes, we recommend that you bring layered clothing. We have washing machines, dryers, and detergent available.
