Not everyone needs inpatient detox treatment, but the process of withdrawal can often be much smoother and easier if you choose to attend one of these programs. Call 800-662-8079(Who Answers?) now to find safe, reliable detox care in an inpatient facility.

1. Easily Transition from Detox to Addiction Treatment

Some individuals who do detox in an outpatient facility fail to move into an addiction treatment program afterward. This is extremely dangerous, as the National Library of Medicine states, “Withdrawal reduces the person’s tolerance to the drug, so those who have just gone through withdrawal can overdose on a much smaller dose than they used to take.”

Most inpatient detox and rehab programs offer both options to patients, making the transition much easier and safer.

2. A Controlled Environment

Inpatient Detox Treatment

Inpatient detox gives you time for self-reflection.

Even opioid withdrawal, which is not life threatening, can become extremely uncomfortable and painful to the point where a person might relapse as a result. In an inpatient facility, you will receive care in a controlled environment where you will not have a possibility of relapse.

Instead of worrying about the chance of returning to drug abuse, you can focus on getting better in your current state of recovery.

3. Treatment for Co-occurring Disorders

The medical journal Psychiatric Quarterly states inpatient treatment is much more beneficial to those who are suffering from comorbid mental disorders. Detox is often the time where you will discover these disorders, and it is absolutely necessary to be checked for any as early into your treatment as possible.

Therefore, inpatient care can benefit you in many ways as a more thorough option for the treatment of withdrawal and co-occurring mental disorders.

4. 24-Hour Access to Care

Withdrawal can be difficult, and it is hard to know if the symptoms you are currently experiencing will become worse. In a residential detox facility, you will have access to 24-hour care, which will protect you from experiencing any issues that cannot be treated immediately.

Some individuals who are experiencing milder withdrawal symptoms will often choose outpatient care, but especially with substances like alcohol and prescription sedatives, there is a possibility that one’s symptoms can become worse. It can feel much safer to know you are in a place where you will always have access to the medical treatment you may require.

5. Self-reflection

Detox is a time of self-reflection. Since you have decided to end your abuse of a dangerous drug and want to make a change in your life, it can help you to get some time away from your daily life to just reflect on your choices and think about where your recovery should go next.

It can also help you to be away from the day-to-day problems in your life, as they may have been contributing to your substance abuse issues.
