What Is Medical Detox?

Medical detox is a fundamental first step in addiction treatment. During a medically supervised detox, the body removes drugs and alcohol from its system, which can involve uncomfortable or dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Our medical team provides 24/7 supervision and treatment for symptoms to make detox as safe and comfortable as possible.

Is medical detox
right for me?

If any of these apply to you, stopping safely may require medical detox. We’re here to help.

  • I’ve tried stopping by myself before and it didn’t work
  • I keep using drugs or alcohol to avoid feeling withdrawal symptoms
  • I’ve been using substances for a long time or in large amounts
  • I’m addicted to alcohol or benzodiazepines, where withdrawal symptoms can be fatal

What to Expect In Our Medical Detox Program

Before medical detox starts, we assess each patient’s drug and alcohol use, physical and mental state, and any co-occurring disorders to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. 

Patients at The Recovery Village Columbus detox in quiet, private rooms and receive 24-hour medical care, medications to manage withdrawal symptoms as medically appropriate, and nutritious meals to bolster health. They’ll also begin one-on-one counseling sessions with their licensed therapist.

FAQs About Medical Detox

How long is medical detox?

The length of time detox takes depends on the substance used, withdrawal symptoms and your physical health. Most clients complete the medically supervised detox period in 7–10 days.

Can I detox at home?

We do not recommend detoxing at home. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable and demotivating, leading to relapse. Alcohol and opioids, in particular, have withdrawal symptoms that can be fatal without immediate medical care.

Does medical detox work?

Yes, 24/7 medical supervision ensures your drug or alcohol detox is successful. However, detox is only the first step in addiction treatment; you’ll continue with additional treatment and counseling to stay on your recovery journey.
