Facility Highlights

  • Health Food Options
  • Gender Specific Programs
  • Drug Detox


  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

On the facility’s Yelp page, there is an overall rating of one out of five stars based on one total review.[1] The alum, D.P., said he had been to several detoxification facilities and Summit Detox was “by far the worst.” They also wrote, “The staff…don't like their job which makes your stay there terrible. I left to go somewhere else and had to call the police to get my belongs back.”

On Google, Summit Detox received an average of 4.3 out of five stars based upon 11 reviews. [2] In the positive commentary, most reviewers praised the staff. "The staff were amazing," one reviewer wrote. A common theme in the positive review, however, was the statement that treatment often started out poorly but got much better as time went on. "Started out rough..." on reviewer wrote, "however as i began to feel better...the experience was well worth it." Another reviewer supported this mindset: "I don't know anyone who 'enjoys' detoxing, but with that being said, the staff at Summit makes the process as comfortable as possible."

While most reviewers were overwhelmingly positive, there were also a few polarized responses that were extremely negative. One one-star reviewer wrote, "I had a very horrible experience at their detox. Was experiencing significant side effects from my withdrawal and the medical personnel were not considerate at all." Another reviewer condemned the facility's "HORRIBLE COMMUNICATION," and added, "they don't tell you that it takes several times in rehab...so be prepared to pay over and over and over again."


There is currently no information provided by Summit Detox regarding its costs. However, the facility accepts “most insurance plans” including Aetna, Beacon, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medical Mutual, and United Healthcare.
