Treatment works, there are many paths to help, and people recover every day. Like other chronic diseases, addiction can be managed successfully. It can take several attempts at treatment to find the right approach. Treatment helps people disrupt addiction's powerful effects on the brain and behavior and regain control of their lives.

Medical detoxification services are available for those who require it.
Length of stay at Fairfax Detox depends upon the individual’s condition and ability to stabilize, but is usually around 7-10 days.
New CSB clients can contact CSB Entry & Referral Services at 703-383-8500 to request an assessment for the Addiction Medicine Clinic (AMC) and Office-Based Opioid Treatment .
Current CSB Fairfax Detoxification Center clients can ask for a “step-down” appointment to go directly to AMC after completing detox.
Services through AMC are long term and usually begin about two weeks after assessment.
