What is Salvia?

Salvia, technically Salvia divinorum, is an herb in the mint family. Its effects include feeling at peace with the world, feeling apart from one’s body, severe distortions of time and space, and hallucinations. Salvia leaves can be chewed, dried and smoked, or crushed for juice. Salvia has been banned in at least 12 states. There are no short term dangers associated with using the drug, besides its hallucinogenic effects. The long term effects of salvia use have never been studied, although no overdoses have ever been reported. Users say the high is similar to that of marijuana.

Salvia Detox Program

Clients in the salvia detox program are not required to complete traditional medical detox, because salvia detox presents minimal health risks. However, doctors and nurses will monitor all clients around the clock to ensure that clients are safe and comfortable during the entire process. Detox typically lasts 7 to 10 days, but it may take longer depending on how frequently salvia was abused. Doctors may prescribe medications to help with any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. During detox, clients can choose to stay in a private or semi-private bedroom with attached bathroom. We employ an experienced chef who can customize meal plans to fit the clients’ needs or dietary concerns. We offer an exclusive line of IV vitamins, tablets, and nutritional supplements to complement our clients’ diets. We allow cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices at our center, which makes us unique from other detox facilities. Many of our staff members are currently in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. At our center, you will always have someone to talk to who understands what you are going through. We don’t believe in “one size fits all” detox, instead we focus on each client to create an individualized treatment plan. We also offer many different holistic treatments for our clients in the salvia detox program.

These treatments include:

  • Aromatherapy – We use essential oils, like lavender, which promote relaxation, boost your mood, and improve cognitive functioning.
  • Yoga – The practice of yoga originally came from ancient India, but now it’s popular worldwide. The purpose of yoga is to find inner-peace and to find permanent happiness within.
  • Acupuncture – Traditionally a Chinese medicine, acupuncturists use needles or laser-point to stimulate certain parts of the body. This helps to increase the flow of “qi” throughout the body.
  • Massage therapy – We employ only licensed, experienced massage therapists who are familiar with a multitude of different massage therapy techniques.
  • Meditation – This practice helps our clients to refocus on their ultimate goal – sobriety and recovery. Many people meditate daily and feel that the benefits are tangible.
