Daybreak Treatment Solutions Is Drug Detox Required Before Inpatient Rehab

What is Drug Detox?

Many people who suffer from substance use disorder choose to go through drug detox first for many reasons. Detox treatment at a recovery center has many benefits including medical supervision, around-the-clock support, medication-assisted treatment to ease withdrawal symptoms, and also ensures you complete drug detox successfully by practically eliminating the chances of relapse early on. Although detox programs are beneficial, they are not always necessary before inpatient treatment.

When To Seek Inpatient Rehab

Addiction recovery comes in many forms, including inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. Both types of substance abuse treatment have their benefits, but for some people, inpatient addiction rehab is necessary to increase their chances of successful addiction recovery. You should choose inpatient substance abuse rehab if you have been dealing with severe drug or alcohol addiction, long-standing addiction, or have a co-occurring disorder such as anxiety disorder, depression, or posttraumatic stress disorder. Inpatient addiction rehab is the most intense form of addiction treatment and can help you fully immerse yourself into your recovery program. Inpatient drug addiction treatment may also be necessary if you do not have a supportive or safe home environment. For example, if there are others in your home who continue to use drugs or alcohol, it is an abusive environment, or there are triggers for relapse.

What Happens During Inpatient Rehab for Drugs and Alcohol

During inpatient drug rehab, you will live at the treatment facility or a sober living home full time for the duration of your treatment. Your days are highly structured and scheduled around several types of treatment including cognitive behavioral therapy, co-occurring disorders treatment, 12step programs, dialectical behavior therapy, group therapy, family therapy, holistic treatments, and other addiction treatments. You will also have scheduled free time and some treatment centers have off-campus activities as well. A residential rehab program can last from 30 days to 60 days to 90 days and even more, it just depends on what is necessary for your successful recovery. After inpatient drug addiction treatment, you can also go down several levels of care to ease your way back into real life and have adequate support while you adjust to sober living.

Will Detox Be Necessary?

Drug and alcohol detox is not always necessary, but it is recommended. With certain drugs and alcohol, medically assisted detox will be necessary due to the risk of potentially dangerous and fatal withdrawal symptoms, such as seizures. Prescription drug addiction is one of the instances where detox programs may be necessary. Medical professionals will monitor your vitals and give you proper medication-assisted treatment to offset withdrawal symptoms while also providing around-the-clock care and support. Even without the more dangerous withdrawal symptoms, a detox center can help you successfully complete detoxing from drugs. Many people relapse early on when they attempt detoxing from drugs on their own because they cannot handle the withdrawal symptoms, plus cravings and temptations are highest at this point.
