If you have decided to get clean, the choices can seem overwhelming. There are many important questions you need to ask yourself, such as are you committed to overcoming your addiction? Do I need inpatient detox? The type of detox you undertake can make or break your recovery efforts. 

So what is an inpatient detox, and is it right for you? 

What does it involve? 

How to Know if you Need Inpatient Detox

Understanding what an inpatient detox is will help you decide whether it is the correct course of action for you. As the name suggests, an inpatient detox involves checking yourself into the center for the duration of your treatment. 

You will receive round-the-clock treatment and care from experienced medical professionals. You will also receive support as you go through the physical withdrawal symptoms. 

The most common withdrawal symptoms are: 

  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia and vivid dreams
  • Gastrointestinal issues – nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Flu-like symptoms

Medical detox is the first step in your recovery. Your best chance of overcoming your addiction is to receive professional counseling on a one-to-one or group basis. This aspect of your recovery takes a deeper look at the psychological issues behind your addiction. 

Once you’ve identified your psychological issues, you will be helped to develop better skills to cope with pressure and stressful situations in your everyday life which might affect your sobriety. 

The final stage of your recovery takes place on an outpatient basis with access to our aftercare services. Your counseling will continue on an as-needed basis and there will be access to regular support groups. Just because you have left the center doesn’t mean that you are alone. We want to give you the very best chance of maintaining your recovery by giving you the coping tools to deal with whatever life throws at you. 

Once your physical detox symptoms have subsided, you’ll undergo counseling to understand the psychological issues behind your addiction. Inpatient detox centers are designed to be relaxing and comfortable for you as you complete your treatment. 

In addition to managing your withdrawal, the team will also look to improve your general health with access to nutritious meals, exercise, and relaxation opportunities.
