Can You Detox at Home?

at-home detox

Across the country, 7.74% of adults reported having a substance use disorder in 2022. While the number in Georgia is slightly lower at 6.6%, there are still over half a million people living in the state who reported struggling with addiction. If you’re among them, you may have found yourself in a bit of a bind. You need to detox from drugs or alcohol while balancing your responsibilities at work, school, and home. At-home detox makes this possible. With the right care, you can take positive steps toward recovery.

Can You Detox At Home? 

Yes! With the help of an outpatient detox center, you can continue residing in your home while receiving medically supervised care. The discomfort associated with detoxing from drugs and alcohol deters many from seeking help, but these symptoms can be successfully managed with professional intervention. 

What is At-Home Detox? 

At-home detox is similar to what you would experience at a medical facility or rehabilitation center. With this method of treatment, all you have to do is visit our practice to develop your treatment plan, work with our clinicians, and receive your prescriptions. From there, we will supervise you throughout the entire detox process. Your care team will work with you to monitor your vital signs and help make you more comfortable. The initial detoxification process typically lasts from three to seven days, and our team provides supplementary programming for 15 to 21 days afterward.
