The Basics on Drug and Alcohol Detox Programs If you have alcoholism, prescription drug addiction, cocaine dependence or any other chemical habit that’s taken over your life, you’ve probably heard hints that you’d do well to get help at a professional drug detox center.
1. Medically supervised withdrawal is always safer than “home detox.” While some forms of withdrawal are more dangerous than others—a lot depends on the substance involved, the duration of the addiction and the detoxer’s overall physical condition A well-managed drug detox center will have immediate access to licensed medical treatment; experience in spotting trouble signs andreassuring patients; and the facilities to make you as comfortable as possible
2. Inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center. In other words, you needn’t worry that your room in an alcohol/drug detox center will resemble the stereotypical filthy cot. You’ll be assigned a real bedroom, solitary or shared, cleaned and maintained by staff. Also as in a general hospital, there will be visiting hours for outside family and friends, plus rules on what they or you can bring onto treatment center grounds. For other patients’ protection as well as your own, anything that could encourage relapse cravings, trigger nausea or be used as a weapon will be banned.
