Any comprehensive and effective alcohol or drug treatment experience must include detoxification or (detox). Detox helps people manage their withdrawal symptoms, so they’re able to abstain from alcohol or drugs long enough to enter and navigate behavioral rehab. It’s critically important that detox be administered by an experienced and qualified medical team (doctors and nurses) to help you alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms and get the help you need in the event of a medical emergency.
Rapid or self-detox is never advisable, as it can not only need to relapse; but also severe long-term health risks. Medical detox usually lasts around three days to a week, depending upon the scope of withdrawal symptoms and dependency.
What Happens during Medical Detox?
During medical detox and withdrawal management, you or your loved one will be consistently monitored by medical professionals to get the best relief possible for your withdrawal symptoms, which often include but are not limited to:
- Fever and Flu-Like Symptoms
- Aches and Pains
- Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea
- Excessive Sweating
- Shaking and Tremors
- Headaches and Migraines
- Confusion and Disorientation
Medical detox includes a comprehensive patient intake form that documents all of your medical issues that can help inform your care, as opposed to taking risks by trying to weather the storm on your own at home with nobody to monitor your symptoms.
