What Is Medical Detox?

When you become addicted to alcohol or drugs, your body becomes used to having the substances in its system. The brain becomes dependent on them and believes it needs them to function.

When you decide you want to stop using the drug, your body will start to detox. This means that it will produce mental and physical withdrawal symptoms while ridding the body of the harmful toxins associated with whatever drug you were using.

Medical detox is an opportunity to undergo withdrawal from the toxins in a safe and comfortable environment. It involves being cared for and monitored 24/7 by our medical staff and can include medication-assisted treatment, which uses certain medications to help your body wean off of addictive substances.

Benefits of A Medical Detox

When you are under the care of medical professionals while detoxing, you are less likely to relapse. Having the care and support of addiction specialists who know how to minimize withdrawal symptoms can help immensely. You also have less risk of serious complications, including overdose.

For example, plenty of people struggling with alcoholism do not realize how severe withdrawal symptoms can be. If they try to detox at home by themselves, they could experience dangerous symptoms like delirium tremens, seizures, or hallucinations.

However, at a medical detox center, they are closely monitored and can receive medications that can help prevent such symptoms.

Additional benefits of a medical detox include:

  • Having the time to retreat from daily life, habits, and patterns to solely focus on recovery without distractions.
  • Access to addiction recovery experts.
  • Get professional support and encouragement in a comfortable, safe facility.
  • Rest, repair, and begin building a solid foundation for continued recovery.

Should I detox at home?

Trying to get through withdrawal on your own at home can be extremely challenging and dangerous. Depending on the drug, you could put yourself in danger of severe withdrawal symptoms like seizures, tremors, or death.

Our inpatient medical detox center has around-the-clock staff that monitors and ensures safety when it comes to getting through the withdrawal process. Trained doctors and nurses monitor your vitals and check your progress each day. Depending on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms, they may prescribe comfort medications to help minimize your discomfort.

If you’re unsure whether or not you should detox at home or in a medically supervised setting, you can contact our helpful staff online or on the phone for help.

How long is medical detox?

Most commonly, a medical detox will take between three to seven days for the physical withdrawal symptoms to stop. However, the emotional withdrawal symptoms, such as cravings, anxiety, or mood swings may linger for weeks or months.

The time it takes for the body to detox varies from person to person, depending on factors like the type of drug, frequency of use, age, addiction history, and more.

How old do I have to be to start your detox program?

SOBA New Jersey’s detox program only accepts adults 18 years of age and older. We do not treat adolescents.
