Detoxifying can be a painful, debilitating, and even life-threatening process. Without professional help from a drug detox program, it is usually unsuccessful, leading to relapse. Patients are safer with a medical team of a medical detox program than they would be otherwise. Dealing with their withdrawal symptoms, somewhere unequipped to handle any severe physical effects of the process, can be a fatal choice. New Start Recovery offers a wide range of drug detox programs.
Benefits of a Medical Detox Program
A Drug Detox Program Has a Higher Recovery Success Rate
At-home detox can fail because it’s easier for patients to go back to using a substance to numb the pain of the arising withdrawal symptoms. Without medical supervision, patients can easily give up and stop detoxing.
Medical detox has a higher chance of success – which is important because once someone fails at detox, they’re less likely to try to do it in the future. A medical detox team can also recommend that a patient goes to an addiction treatment program. In many cases, addiction treatment programs often start with medical detox.
It’s very rare for a patient to know exactly what to do during an at-home detox. But a medical detox program will have a medical team that can deal with detoxes professionally.
The patient won’t have to focus on anything other than recovery and following a routine. They won’t get unwanted attention, have unhealthy distractions, or remember when to take which medications. And most importantly, there won’t be a time or a place for a relapse.
