What will my first day at Chapel Hill Detox look like?

Committing to treatment is one of the most important steps you can make in your life. We take pride in our smooth admission process. Upon entry, new residents undergo a comprehensive evaluation. We take a look into our new resident’s mental and physical health. Following the evaluation, we will determine the best course of action.

In most cases, new residents begin the medical detox process. This process helps set the foundation for a long-lasting recovery. Our medical team will make sure any traces of substances or substance-related toxins are cleared from your body. This process is to ensure each resident starts treatment with a completely sober mind and body. 

The first day will involve a tour of the facility, then an introduction to our staff and medical professionals. We strive to make you feel at home from the very beginning of treatment.

Why is a medically supervised detox necessary?

We feel that a medically supervised detox is one of the most important steps in the recovery process. This detox style can help individuals experiencing life-threatening or severe withdrawal symptoms from drugs or alcohol. Many drugs have severe consequences if quitting cold turkey. Our professional staff will make the process as safe and comfortable as possible.

What happens after detox?

Following detox, we will continue to monitor each patient’s physical, social, and psychological status. We also monitor any factors that could potentially trigger a relapse. A significant aspect and goal of Chapel Hill Detox is to help our residents develop skills and strategies to prevent relapse.

After detox, most of our clients begin an inpatient or outpatient program. Many of our residents find they are dealing with underlying mental health issues that can be helped in treatment. After completing an inpatient program, many of our clients join aftercare, outpatient, or other forms of support group treatment.

Does Chapel Hill Detox offer treatment for co-occurring mental disorders?

Yes. After evaluation, if a resident is experiencing symptoms of co-occurring disorders, they may receive a dual diagnosis. We believe the best way to treat co-occurring disorders is by treating them both together while understanding how each disorder’s symptoms play into each other.

What sets Chapel Hill Detox apart from other rehabilitation centers?

What is the difference between sober living and halfway houses?

Contrary to popular belief, sober living and halfway houses are not the same. Both provide community support, but they do have valuable differences. Many halfway houses are directed by government agencies. In many cases, halfway houses are overcrowded and less comfortable than sober living homes. Sober living homes tend to be more expensive since they provide more amenities and privacy. Sober living homes are also often covered by insurance.

What are some amenities associated with sober living?
  • 24/7 support
  • Life coaching
  • Continued recovery programs
  • Utilities such as electricity, water, and cable

More specific amenities depend on the particular home. Sober living homes can vary in size, number of tenants, and overall quality of amenities.

What is the average cost of sober living homes?

Houses typically offer pricing by week or month. Rent is split up between the people living in the house. In West Palm Beach, the average cost of rent per person is approximately between $800 and $1,400 each month.

What are some benefits of sober living?

Resident support

Sober living homes are filled with individuals who need and provide support. Generally, a manager lives in the house and is available to help each resident around the clock. Managers help prevent relapse and other similar support. 

Sober relationships

Sober living home residents often work together to deal with shared issues. This helps develop a deep bond between the residents. Each individual is working toward long-term sobriety.

Learn how to adjust

Sober living homes help people adjust to a normal lifestyle. Each resident will have obligations and responsibilities they can be proud of. Residents learn practical skills and learn how to stick to a rigid schedule. 


Residents in sober homes often find employment, return to school, and participate in other social engagements. Healthy choices become easier to make as each resident finds pride in their new lifestyle.
