Ask a Professional

  • Should a detox program be considered rehabilitation?

    It is a form of rehabilitation, but it is not anything that is well-rounded and would address underlying issues. Detox is the first step before entering an outpatient or residential drug rehab program. It should not be considered counseling but a place to withdraw from drugs and alcohol.

  • Is it necessary to attend a detox program before drug rehab?

    It depends on the situation. Suppose you are still under the influence of drugs and alcohol, then detox is necessary to manage withdrawal symptoms. Some drug rehab programs require you to be sober for one or two weeks before entering the program. Detox is necessary to treat withdrawal symptoms, for example, alcohol, opioids, or illegal street drugs.

  • Is withdrawal management the same as a detox?

    Withdrawal management is a form of detoxification that deals with managing withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid or alcohol addiction or prescription drug addiction. This involves the process of managing dangerous withdrawal symptoms that require medication to ease withdrawal pain.

  • How is medical detox different from clinical detox programs?

    Medical detox programs utilize withdrawal management or medication-assisted treatment to alleviate dangerous withdrawal symptoms. It is different because medical detox programs are medically supervised, whereas clinical detox centers do not provide the same services.

  • Is medical detox needed for every type of substance use disorder?

    No, medical detox is generally only needed for severe drug dependence, such as with alcohol, pain medication, or benzodiazepines. Medical detox is not necessarily required for cocaine or methamphetamine addiction because withdrawal symptoms are not always dangerous or severe.

  • Are medications used in detox programs?

    Yes, in a medical detox program, medications are used to alleviate difficult and painful withdrawal symptoms. Medications are also used to taper individuals off of particular drugs. Medications are not meant to be permanent but only used in a medical setting to treat difficult withdrawal symptoms.
