Detoxing from addictive substances can create a number of health risks, especially if you suddenly stop using certain substances, like alcohol or benzodiazepines. You may experience a number of unpleasant and potentially serious withdrawal symptoms and may need medical support.
Home detox also carries the risk of relapse and potential overdose, which could be fatal. It is essential that detox isn’t attempted at home and is conducted under the care of a medical professional specializing in addiction treatment.
In this instance, detox is the process of stopping using substance and detoxifying the body, at home without medical intervention. Due to the number of health risks associated with home detox, it is not advised by medical professionals. It can be particularly dangerous to suddenly stop drinking or taking drugs cold turkey, rather than tapering off.
Home detox is rarely successful because the side effects of stopping are so unpleasant that the risk of relapse is high.
It is strongly advised by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to seek professional intervention, especially if the person has been using substances persistently, to ensure they overcome risks of home detox.
“For alcohol, sedative-hypnotic, and opioid withdrawal syndromes, hospitalization or some form of 24-hour medical care is generally the preferred setting for detoxification, based upon the principles of safety and humanitarian concerns.”
As we mentioned, there are a number of risks of home detox. This is particularly prevalent with alcohol detox and benzodiazepine detox.
The dangers include:
Medically-monitored detox centers are a crucial aspect of the recovery process. It ensures that the person is treated safely and reduces the risk of complications that might arise from the detox process. According to SAMHSA, almost 80 percent of professional detoxification use medication to ease withdrawal symptoms.
