It is important to mention that the goal of any detox program is to allow the patient’s body to heal after long-term drug abuse, by helping the body rid itself of the drug and then work on stabilizing the patient so they can transition to long-term treatment.
This process can take place either in an inpatient or outpatient facility, depending on the severity of the addiction and the presence of any other medical or mental illnesses. But generally, the more severe the addiction and/or having a co-occurring disorder indicates a preference for the patient to have their detox in an inpatient facility.
Detox from opioids or alcohol can be a particularly dangerous process, during which medical supervision is necessary to ensure the patient is safe throughout withdrawal.
Many individuals ask if they can detox privately at home as it is more convenient to be around their loved ones in a comfortable environment. Our short answer is yes, at-home detox is possible yet it may not be the smartest choice and we don’t recommend it for the following reasons:
It may not be safe.
It may not be as effective.
Patients can experience any medical issue which their loved ones will not know how to handle like Doctors and nurses trained to do so at New Nozha Hospital.
Drug detox is the first step in a comprehensive rehabilitation program that offers all the necessary requirements for recovery. Detox can prevent unpleasant or even fatal consequences that result from sudden cessation of use and can aid the patient in becoming abstinent from drugs.
No matter what the drug of choice is, detox is not the only step in recovery since addiction is both psychological and physical, patients benefit from psychotherapeutic treatment to address and deal with the issues of cravings and changes made in the brain as a result of long-standing substance abuse. Detox alone might help the patient to stop abusing drugs and alcohol in the short term, but without follow-up care and therapy, the risk of relapse into problematic use increases greatly.
The initial period of detoxification can be intense for most patients, therefore our medical and psychiatric staff members will be on hand constantly to provide the effective support they require at any time. A short period after consuming the last dose of drug, patients may start feeling some withdrawal symptoms. Although these symptoms are not deadly, they can become dangerous, uncomfortable, and may cause worries for those around the patient. This is why we advise anyone looking to detox from a drug they are abusing to consider seeking medical and psychological care for the necessary guidance and support.
