McGee Unit / Berkshire Medical Center: Acute Treatment Services (ATS)/Detox: Pittsfield

Information provided by:

Detoxification is also known as Acute Treatment Services (ATS). It's the first step toward recovery for many people who need medical management or who will go through withdrawal. Detox services provide 3 to 5 days of 24-hour care and monitoring for withdrawal. Medical management might be needed because the symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, and some opioid medications can be dangerous and even life threatening. Inpatient detoxification allows the patient to be closely monitored and given medication to manage withdrawal.
