Medical detox is the process in which a person’s physical withdrawal symptoms are safely managed and treated in a medical setting. Medically-assisted detox programs are facilitated by doctors and nurses who regularly monitor clients and modify detox protocol as needed.
Many people who are addicted need to detox before they can start a rehab program. If you have a severe addiction or would risk your personal health or comfort trying to detox on your own, a medical detox program may be right for you. We can help determine your need for detox with an assessment.
Medical detox is a highly effective way to get sober. Since treatment is provided in a secure and substance-free environment, relapse is much less likely than detoxing on your own at home. Staff also provide one-on-one support and bridge the transition into rehab, which increases the likelihood of long-term sobriety. Read more about the benefits of inpatient detox on our blog.
The duration of your drug detox program will vary based on your individual circumstances. Most of our clients spend 5-7 days at Briarwood, but because our programs are so individualized, this timeframe may vary. Once we complete your personal assessment, we will be able to give you a more exact timeline for your detox. For more information, read our blog: How Long Does Drug Detox and Withdrawal Last?
Upon completion of your detox program, we will provide you with a professional recommendation for ongoing addiction treatment based on the details provided by your multidisciplinary treatment team. This may include inpatient residential rehab or outpatient addiction treatment. Read more about what happens after detox here.
Our staff may be able to provide intervention assistance or we will connect you with a professional interventionist who can help. We match our clients with professional interventionists based on their personal circumstances and financial ability. Learn more about interventions here.
