Most frequent questions about detox.
What Is Medically Supervised Detox?
Medical detox helps our patients safely withdraw from drugs and alcohol while facing a reduced risk for complications such as seizures, heart failure, and relapse/overdose. This treatment takes place in a comfortable setting where patients can relax and recover from drug dependence while being closely monitored and supervised by trained nurses and doctors. In most cases, medications are used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and help patients feel more comfortable during recovery.
Who Needs Drug and Alcohol Detox?
Anyone who is physically dependent on drugs and/or alcohol and needs medical care to experience a safe withdrawal can benefit from drug detox. Opioids, alcohol, and benzodiazepines are substances of abuse that usually require a supervised detox due to the way they affect the brain and body to cause severe withdrawal. Before you begin your treatment program at drug or alcohol rehab, a medical doctor will perform an assessment and evaluation to determine whether drug detox is ideal for you.
How Long Does Drug and Alcohol Detox Last?
The drug and alcohol detox timeline can range anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks, according to the World Health Organization. The length of drug detox is dependent on factors including the type of substance being used, the severity of dependence, and the person’s current state of health.
Here are average drug detox timelines, by substance:
