Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., Gallus Detox Centers offers medically-assisted, inpatient detoxification services for adults struggling with substance use. The facility uses a specialized method to help clients comfortably withdraw from alcohol and/or drugs, and aids in setting up aftercare.


According to the center’s website, the proprietary Gallus Detox Method, which was developed by a board-certified emergency medicine physician, involves the use of IV therapy to swiftly manage painful withdrawal symptoms.

The treatment center offers detox for multiple substances, including alcohol, opiates, meth, bath salts, and other drugs.

Each client is monitored around the clock, and detox plans are individually tailored and continuously adjusted to ensure comfort. Cardiac telemetry and video monitoring ensure clients’ health. Sessions with a licensed clinical psychologist are also provided to discuss immediate issues and develop post-detox treatment plans.

The length of stay varies based on the substance. Alcohol detox lasts as few as three days, whereas treatment for many prescription drugs takes longer since the drugs last longer within the body.


The facility’s website notes the staff-to-client ratio is 1:2. The facility offers a full medical staff comprised of board-certified physicians, licensed clinical psychologists, ICU-level registered nurses, and medical care technicians.


The facility’s website indicates individualized comfort is a priority at Gallus. A maximum of six clients are admitted at a time, with each staying in an upscale private room with Wi-Fi and a flat-screen HDTV.

Unlike most traditional rehabs, clients are encouraged to keep in close contact with family and friends during treatment, and even check in with work if it’s not too stressful. As such, the use of personal computers and cell phones is permitted.

  • This is my story and my experience at Gallus Detox Center. To Whoever reads this please make the choice to get clean, you won't regret it and it really turned out that all the things I read about Gallus Detox were legit and then some. I had a really bad car wreck and got hooked on hydrocodone and other painkillers and heard that methadone could help you get off of opiates. This was the worst decision I have ever made in my life because I was trading one addiction for another one. Please to anyone do not ever get on methadone it’s the hardest thing to get off of but it is possible and there is hope. I finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired so I started looking into treatment but always came across what seemed to be the same cookie cutter treatment center that does the same thing and is ran like a jail. So after going through hundreds of websites and countless phone calls, I came across and all of a sudden something felt different about this website. A massive weight and a wave of emotions I have never felt before came over me and I started crying very heavily so I wrote down their number and closed my laptop without going through 90% of their website. I tried to sleep but at first, I couldn't stop thinking about this place but a comfort came over me that night that this was the right place before even calling. When I woke up the next morning I still had that same feeling that this was the right place and my search was over and when I called the first time I was blessed to be able to talk to a young lady named Lisa and she was very patient and at that time in my mind I was thinking that I didn’t deserve for someone to be this caring and worried about getting me here because every day you are addicted to something it could be your last day and that’s not the way to live. I was just existing at that point I didn’t have any motivation or desire to do or work towards anything before coming to Gallus. I was skeptical at first but after reserving my room and booking my flight all of the skepticism went away. There was still a lot of anxiety but every bit of that started to go away the moment they picked me up from the airport and all the rest of my anxiety went away the second I walked in the door I realized that I had made the best decision of my life. I couldn’t imagine another place that is more caring, safer and comfortable in the United States and there have even been people come from overseas to detox here if that tells you anything. They immediately evaluated me and within an hour I had an IV with my medicine and a specific treatment schedule made for me since they approach each person differently to make me as comfortable as I could have hoped for and then some. The IV process of delivering your medicine works a lot better and faster and can be changed and administered if anything changes with you mentally or physically at least in my case they did. This is very important to be as comfortable as possible so you will actually finish your detox. Their process is different than any other approach I ever came across online but their approach is very effective especially when your withdrawals are at their worst no matter what drug or drugs you are on. Gallus Detox saved my life they gave me hope when I had didn’t have any left they gave me my feelings back and that ability to care about things other than myself and my methadone addiction. This is the best place in the country to detox off of any drug but methadone is the worst I was in there for 18 days and only had minimal withdrawal symptoms but that is to be expected. What I wasn’t expecting was how short they were and how they were to keep it under control during my stay even watching the 8 to 10 others come in with the same fear but their fears were calmed down just like mine when I realized I was dealing with the most caring group I have ever had the pleasure to get to know. They are more like a family up there and it rubbed off on me and everyone that came before and after me that I interacted with. Everyone helps each other and messes around and joking with everyone the entire atmosphere from your first step in the door to your last step to leave. I honestly will always have a piece of my heart inside that place because that’s where my life changed after thinking that nothing could change and I was going to have to be dependent on Methadone for the rest of my life. Patrick the Boss Man and all of his staff make you realize from your first call that no matter what drug or drugs you are on they have seen every situation and every drug addiction come through their doors. The most important aspect is Patrick comes every day to talk to each person and that they have 2 people that are literally 10 feet away at all times in case anything were to go wrong. Something that I will always remember is the staff members treats you like you are part of their own family and goes out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible and are more laid back than anything I expected due to their approach towards ever aspect of this life-changing journey from beginning to end even with help setting up aftercare which the staff works tirelessly on from the second you get there they are setting up your next step whatever it may be. With the IV therapy and their overall different approach to a traditional detox/rehab. The food is fantastic they order from all the local restaurants that had a ton of variety and always ordered from different places so nothing would get old. The private rooms were very comfortable and reminded me of being home. You have a flat screen high def tv with cable and wifi plus you get to bring your personal cell phone, laptop, and tablet. Here is what put Gallus Detox above other places is that I have had really bad back problems and haven’t slept in a bed in close to 4 years. They went and rented an electrically adjustable recliner for me to sleep in which is something I didn’t even think of before arriving I was just ready to get there. I was there for 18 days but every other drug you can detox of in about a week depending on your situation but for those 18 days I personally got the privilege to watch probably 8-10 people that came in looking like they were on their last leg and a week later they left with no issues and they were a completely different person inside and out. not 1 time did I see anyone sick or so uncomfortable they couldn’t function. Everyone was as comfortable as physically and mentally possible during this most important time of my life and others as well. Every single person that I got to know and see come through completed their detox and moved on to wherever their next step was but GALLUS DETOX is the best first step you can ever take to take your life back and learn to care and live again sober. It's worth it in every way possible. I owe Gallus everything including my life and my outlook towards the future that they gave me the hope that was missing before. I care about every single one of yall and if anyone ever needs ANYTHING you have my number. Thank you so much for everything yall do and will continue to do for everyone that comes through those doors especially me it means the world to have my life back. I wish nothing but the best for you and your families. Especially my Prayer Warrior. Love yall. D.D

  • Highly skilled, caring and compassionate staff Not a weakness but this is a medical detox, not a treatment center. The staff and Substance Abuse Counselor will assist the patients in aftercare planning and placement. I have been with this company since it began in 2011. Gallus Detox and all of it's employees are very passionate about what we do and care for our patients like they are our family. The small facility and excellent staff to patient ratio allow the staff to really help patients both medically and emotionally.

  • Gallus Detox is by far the best detox center I have referred people, including very close friends to. The staff credentials coupled with their unique and individualized treatment approach is by far the most effective in the detoxification industry. I don't know if this is a weakness, but the centers are limited to 6 patients at a time. The intake process is very simple, the treatment is very effective as most of the detox treatments are done via IV therapy. All rooms are single, so it makes for a more comfortable stay, as you don't have to deal with other people health issues. I recommend calling them and possibly expect a short waiting list, as they are always full because of their effectiveness.
