Medical detox is for those who have been using alcohol or drugs persistently — who may meet the criteria for substance use disorder — and experience withdrawal symptoms upon stopping. Inpatient medical detox is particularly beneficial for people who are unable to stop drinking or using on their own.
You may or may not be familiar with the process of medical detox. We’ve outlined some helpful information in this blog, including what is involved in medical detox, the types of detox facilities, and the benefits of medical detox programs.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration helpfully outlines the process of detox as follows:
“Detoxification is a set of interventions aimed at managing acute intoxication and withdrawal. Supervised detoxification may prevent potentially life-threatening complications that might appear if the patient were left untreated. At the same time, detoxification is a form of palliative care (reducing the intensity of a disorder) for those who want to become abstinent or who must observe mandatory abstinence as a result of hospitalization or legal involvement. Finally, for some patients it represents a point of first contact with the treatment system and the first step to recovery.”
There are two types of medical detox facilities:
Detox facilities vary depending on the type of facility and intensity of care provided. Broadly speaking, a medical detox facility should help to manage withdrawal symptoms, provide medication to ease the detox process, be able to handle any health complications, will medically supervise detox, conduct a behavioral assessment, and assist the patient in providing recovery support and aftercare.
It is critical that you carefully choose your detox facility based on your individual health needs. For more information on medical detox, withdrawal symptoms, and our addiction treatment, click here.
