Detox can take up to ten days, and affiliated rehab programs can last an additional 30 days.
Many addiction experts agree that being under the care of a licensed medical professional while detoxing from drugs and alcohol can be much safer and more comfortable because a doctor may be able to prescribe medication that could help manage the withdrawal symptoms one might experience.
Once you are checked in to a facility and begin the detoxification process it is not recommended that you leave until you have completed your prescribed course of treatment. Often when a client leaves detox they find themselves in a relapse.
If required, doctors will be able to provide you with an appropriate medication regimen to help you manage your withdrawal symptoms.
With the right detox program, you can be comfortable and virtually pain-free. But detox is never really fun, so it’s best to do a lot of sleeping and distract yourself with light activities.
Unless your symptoms are managed, you may, depending on many factors, experience insomnia, physical pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and headache. Some people even experience depression, suicidal thoughts, and general unease. But again, it will depend on the drug you are detoxing from, how long you may have been addicted to it, and how well your detox is managed. That’s why you may need a true medical detox facility like Serenity.
Detox may be uncomfortable. However, you or your loved one can rest assured that Serenity will attempt to make your detox as smooth and as comfortable as possible. We want you to be able to move on and continue your rehabilitation program as soon as you are clean and stable.
