Medical Detox is an Important First Step
Virtually all people suffering from alcohol, opiate, or other drug or substance addiction require a period to “clean up” – to physically and chemically remove these substances from the body prior to inpatient residential treatment. This process is commonly referred to as detoxification, detox, or medical detox. It is highly recommended that medical detox treatment occurs under the supervision of trained medical personnel and appropriate facilities. With medically-supervised detox, physical withdrawal symptoms can be managed, the detoxification process can be accelerated, and medical care is provided by board-certified physicians and licensed medical staff. This phase typically takes 3-10 days in an outpatient setting.
