Effective October 14, 2019: LRADAC Withdrawal Management Services will be limited to individuals struggling with alcohol and/or benzodiazepine misuse who meet the medical criteria for medically monitored withdrawal services. However, LRADAC understands the need for treatment engagement for those struggling with opioid misuse and therefore, individuals who do not meet criteria for withdrawal management will be referred to LRADAC outpatient services or to the individual’s local outpatient service provider. Pregnant individuals will always be a priority consideration for the appropriate level of care, to include withdrawal management.

If you struggle to stop using substances because of withdrawal symptoms, you may participate in our inpatient detoxification program. In detox, you receive medically-monitored care to help you minimize the symptoms of withdrawals.


Is Detox right for you? In order to be admitted to Detox, you must first participate in an assessment over the telephone with a staff member. You can reach someone for an assessment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (803) 726-9390.

What to Expect

If admitted, a medical technician facilitates orientation and provides you with a handbook. You will then be seen by a nurse. A clinical counselor will manage your individualized plan of care and case management.
