Have More Questions About Drug Detox? We Have Answers.

How long does it take for your body to detox?

Most of our clients spend 5-7 days detoxing at Briarwood but many different factors affect the duration of withdrawal. If you want to know how long drug detox will take for you, we can provide you with a better estimate once we complete a comprehensive assessment to gather more information.

What happens during detox?

Before your detox program, we will complete a comprehensive assessment to determine your treatment needs and the severity of your addiction. We will use that information to design a personalized detox program for you. Once detox begins, we will safely manage and treat your withdrawal symptoms in a safe, comfortable, and private setting. You will receive 24/7 medical care in addition to clinical therapy to help you work through the psychological side effects of withdrawal as well as any mental health issues you may be experiencing. You may also attend group therapy sessions, H&I meetings, and participate in music and art activities if you are physically able.

What’s the quickest way to detox?

Self-detox regimens and detox kits that are sold online may claim to help you detox faster, but detoxing from alcohol and drugs on your own at home is dangerous. Not receiving professional medical detox treatment promptly can exacerbate withdrawal symptoms and the discomfort may linger longer. The most effective and safest way to detox from drugs or alcohol is with a medical detox program.
