Detox Q & A

What does it mean to detox?

The goal of detox (short for detoxification) is to clear all of the drugs and alcohol out of your body. During your detox, Overcoming
Addictions LLC focuses on your safety and physical health, monitoring your progress, and using medications to prevent withdrawal

What happens during a medically assisted detox?

Medically assisted treatment (MAT) allows you to detox without entering an inpatient program. Overcoming Addictions LLC offers MAT
through in-person visits at the clinic and telehealth appointments from the comfort of your home
During your first appointment, you meet your therapist and they talk with you about your medical history, the substances you use,
your cravings, and withdrawal symptoms.
Then they prescribe the appropriate medication for detoxing from the substance you use. You learn exactly how to take the
medication and what to expect during detox.
The medication you take effectively stops cravings and prevents withdrawal symptoms so you can safely stop taking drugs and detox
your body.
People with these mental health conditions may use any substance, from alcohol and opioids to stimulants, hallucinogens, and
prescription drugs.

How long will I be in detox?

The time it takes to detox differs for each person because it depends on variables such as:

  • The type of substance you use
  • How long you’ve been addicted
  • Your method of drug use (smoking, injecting, swallowing)
  • The drug dose you take
  • Whether you have co-occurring mental health conditions
  • Your overall health
Your detox may take from days to months because it’s not just about clearing addictive substances out of your body. You also need to
take the medication until all of your cravings are gone.
The timetable for eliminating cravings depends on your unique genetic makeup and the substance you use. For example, cravings
often last at least six months for people taking opioids.

What supportive services will I receive during detox?

Your detox is only the first step toward recovering from a chemical dependency. The MAT protocol calls for combining medication with
counseling. Counseling is the key to identifying the things that trigger you to take drugs and then teaching you how to manage those
Counseling is also important because many people who abuse drugs also have another mental health disorder. Co-occurring
conditions make it especially challenging to successfully recover from a dependency, but counseling guides your path and provides
ongoing support.
