Do I Need Medical Detox Before Addiction Treatment?
Based on our experience and expertise, 75-80% of people suffering from alcoholism, opiate addiction, or other drug and substance addiction require a short period of detox time to “clean up.” (Physically and chemically remove the substances from the body before entering into an addiction recovery program.)
This process is referred to in the medical field as detoxification, detox, or medical detox.
It’s highly recommended that the medical detox treatment process occurs only under the supervision of trained medical personnel, only in licensed and accredited detox facilities. With medically-supervised detox, the physical withdrawal symptoms are managed, the detoxification process can be accelerated, and medical care is provided by board-certified physicians and licensed medical staff including an Addictionologist. This phase typically takes 3-10 days in an Outpatient or Inpatient setting.
It’s in your best interest to seek a medical detox if you’ve stopped drinking, using opiates or any other harmful drugs and are showing any physical symptoms, including but not limited to:
- Sensation of skin tightness / discomfort
- Hot and / or cold flashes
- Diarrhea, IBS or any other gastro issues
- When you stop drinking for a day or two, you experience severe physical discomfort
Detoxing from Alcohol
The risk of seizure or death is real when ridding alcohol from your body. Alcohol is the trickiest substance to detox from (in addition to benzodiazepines,) so you most definitely need real medical supervision when attempting to stop drinking and before entering into a treatment program.
Detoxing from Opiates
Our experience is that you can’t and should not attempt a “cold turkey” (just stopping) opiate detox. There are real physical and mental risks associated with this and significant physical discomfort. Entering into a medical detox facility is much safer and comfortable, and your detox can be completed in 5-7 days with our intense medical supervision protocols. The good news is that with today’s medical technology and detox protocol techniques, the process is much faster, safer, and more comfortable than ever before.
