What is medical detox?

Detoxification, or detox, is a way to get rid of the harmful substances in a person’s body. Medical Detox is a safe and supportive way to remove the alcohol or substances in a safe environment with the help of trained medical professionals and if appropriate, with the use of medication. While stopping the use of alcohol and other drugs can be hard, it is also a chance for a person to get healthier and stay healthy.

The withdrawal timeline varies greatly depending on the following factors:

  • Type of substance the user is addicted to
  • Duration an addiction has lasted
  • Frequency of use
  • Method (drinking, snorting, smoking, injecting, or swallowing)
  • The amount of a substance (or alcohol) the patient takes regularly
  • Genetic makeup
  • Co-occuring Medical Conditions
  •  

Process of Detoxification

The drug and alcohol detox process helps our clients get personalized treatment. In most cases, the process involves three steps:

Evaluation

Our medical team screens incoming patients for physical and mental health issues as well as use history. The evaluation process will help the medical and clinical teams formulate an individualized treatment plan.

Stabilization

Stabilization is the purpose of detox. Stabilization occurs when we have safely removed the alcohol or substances from the body and the withdrawal symptoms have subsided. Our physicians can prescribe addiction treatment medications to help relieve symptoms and side effects associated with withdrawal. With the right care, the individual can begin the next steps in their recovery process.

Preparing Entry into Treatment

Doctors familiarize their patients with the treatment process and what to expect. Our Inpatient rehab offers the best chances of success after detox.

Side Effects of Detox

The side effect of drug detox is largely determined by the method used to detox. Detox with medical supervision during an inpatient stay is the safest and most comfortable.

We help with:

  • Nervousness or anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Body discomfort
  • Mood swings
  • Poor sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
