man entering a medical detox centerMedical detox is the first step on the road to lasting, successful recovery. During a medical detox program through a drug and alcohol detox center, clients receive medical care and supervision to ensure that they are safe and healthy during withdrawal. Detoxing on your own can be dangerous. Painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms lead some individuals in recovery to relapse. We’ll ensure that you are supported during treatment and that you can transition into a rehab program to help you develop healthy coping skills for the future.

What Is Medical Detox?

Medical detox is an approach to treatment that involves removing harmful substances from the body with supervision from healthcare professionals. This is especially helpful during alcohol and drug detox. Addiction treatment specialists and clinicians monitor acute withdrawal symptoms to ensure that clients don’t experience any complications.

Withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the severity of the addiction and the substance used. However, some common withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Panic attacks
  • Muscle aches
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Disorientation
  • Bone and joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Delirium tremens (alcohol only)
  • Depression

Detoxing alone or going cold turkey can lead to unnecessary complications. Especially in the case of alcohol or opioid detox, medications and medical interventions can prevent severe withdrawal symptoms from causing harm.

Medical support isn’t the only service that our detox center provides. Clients also participate in group and individual therapy sessions that can help them process the emotional component of withdrawal.

What to Expect in Our Inpatient Medical Detox Center

Upon admission, we administer a thorough evaluation of each of our clients to determine the best treatment plan to meet their needs.

For most clients, symptoms last for anywhere between three and ten days. The length of detox and the severity of the symptoms depend on how long you’ve been using the substance in question and the tolerance you’ve built up to it.

We won’t just help keep you comfortable during detox. Our clients also begin to work through the issues that may have contributed to substance use, like mental health conditions, past trauma, or environmental factors. The support we offer can help you begin to heal and rebuild your life.
