A person in medically monitored detox.

Our medical team offers medically monitored detoxification for individuals who are actively abusing substances. When our patients come into our detox program they are met by a 24/7 team who provides around-the-clock medical care for these individuals.

Initially, our patients are assessed by one of our specialists to determine the best course of action. Once identified the team creates an individualized care plan that can extend anywhere from 3–7 days depending on severity.

Why Do You Need Medical Detoxification?

A lot of substances can be dangerous or deadly to wean off alone. Our medical team utilizes MAT (medication-assisted treatment) to create an easier experience while detoxing off of your DOC (drug of choice).

Being in a stable, medically monitored environment can ensure a safe and comfortable detox. If anything comes up during your detoxification process, we have a full medical team that will ensure your safety, provide comprehensive care, can walk you through the process for detoxification.

What Are the Potential Risks of Detoxing on Your Own?

Detoxing at home from drugs or alcohol poses significant risks beyond just withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal itself can lead to severe medical complications like:

  • Dehydration
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Life-threatening conditions
  • Delirium tremens (DTs)

Firstly, the high likelihood of relapse looms large. Without the structure and support of a supervised environment, individuals attempting at-home detox may find it all too easy to give in to the cravings and return to substance use. The absence of external accountability increases the risk of abandoning the detox process when faced with its challenges.

Moreover, the safety of loved ones is jeopardized in these situations. While the desire to support someone through detox may be driven by genuine concern, playing the role of an amateur nurse or doctor can have serious consequences. Without proper training and expertise, it’s impossible to accurately assess the individual’s physical and mental state. Furthermore, if the detoxing person experiences anger or violence, caregivers put their own health and well-being at risk.

Potential Complications

In addition to the inherent dangers of detoxing, the lack of professional oversight means potential complications may go unnoticed or untreated. This heightens the risk of medical emergencies such as seizures, psychosis, or heart failure going unaddressed until it’s too late.

Ultimately, while the intention to detox at home may stem from a desire for independence or privacy, the reality is that doing so significantly increases the likelihood of harm to both the individual detoxing and those attempting to support them. Professional guidance and supervision are crucial for navigating the complexities and dangers of the detox process safely.
