• Dr. Brent Agin
Our program is supervised by an expert in the detoxification process, Dr. Brent Agin. Brent Agin, MD is board certified in Family Medicine. He attended medical school at the Michigan State University and he completed his internship and residency at the University of South Florida. Experienced in counseling and detoxification for both illicit drugs and prescription medications, Dr. Agin is one of a very select group of physicians certified in buprenorphine therapy. He has also been the medical director at several different local inpatient detoxification facilities for the last 8 years. His research in nutrition and vitamin therapy supports an important component of our detox program.
• Custom Tailored:
This program is specifically designed for each person based on their history and substance use. We understand that everyone’s DNA and metabolism is different so each person is placed on an individualized program, designed and administered just for them, based on the amount of drug usage, our knowledge of metabolism and their reactions to each step of the detox.
• Nutrient Infusions:
Utilizing vitamin and mineral intravenous (IV) infusions along with other nutritional supplements, formulated by Dr. Agin, we are able to decrease many of the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that one can experience with detox. During the 6 week program a total of 15 nutrient IV infusions are done to hydrate the body and replace some of the vitamins and nutrients that are often depleted from during drug use.
• Blood tests:
We often utilize blood tests to look for any nutritional or hormonal deficiencies that could be contributing to addiction. Drug abuse often leads to hormone imbalance and inflammation that can make it difficult to beat addiction, finding these imbalances can help make the detox process successful and smoother.
• 24/7 Access:
