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. However, several 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 an assessment to gather more information.

What happens during detox?

First, we will complete an assessment to determine your treatment needs and the severity of your addiction. Then, 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 comfortable and private setting. Meanwhile, you will receive 24/7 medical care and clinical therapy to help you work through the psychological side effects of withdrawal and any mental health issues. In addition, 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 sold online may claim to help you detox faster. However, detoxing from alcohol and drugs on your own at home is dangerous. Most importantly, not receiving prompt professional medical detox treatment can make withdrawal symptoms more severe and longer lasting. Consequently, the most effective and safest way to detox from drugs or alcohol is with a medical detox program.
