What Is Medical Detox Like for Alcohol?

What is Medical Detox?

Before you can take full advantage of an alcohol addiction treatment program, there is a strong likelihood that you will need to complete a detox program. Drinking alcohol is something that negatively impacts people from all over the country. With the understanding that addiction affects every person differently, it’s imperative that you find a specific treatment provider that will give you the care that you need as you’re detoxing from alcohol. 


How Medical Detox for Alcohol Works

Addiction affects people in unique ways. Therefore, it’s important that you have the support and care from a professional detox center when you’re ready to make this change in your life. Treatment of alcohol needs to start with detox. On average, a detox for the treatment of alcohol addiction is something that will last at least seven days. There may be a specific treatment plan that your addiction professional team recommends. However, there are certain medications that will be used to help to offset some of the harsher impacts of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. 


Keep in mind that you should reach out to our treatment team as soon as you have made the decision to commit to your sobriety. The reason for this is that your withdrawal symptoms can begin quite suddenly. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a person to start experiencing alcohol withdrawal symptoms within just hours from the time that they take their last drink. 


Also, it may seem appealing to try to stay home and manage these withdrawal symptoms on your own. The reality is that this is something that can be a potentially fatal mistake. During the detox process, you should always be surrounded by a caring and support and above all experienced detox team who can provide you with the immediate care that you need at this stage of your treatment journey. 


Medications Used To Treat Alcohol Detox

There are many different types of medications that can be used during detox alcohol treatment. For instance, there are alcohol treatment medications that will help to offset the impact of alcohol withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, cravings or shakiness. These substance abuse treatments are something that our team will always speak with you and your loved ones about in great detail to ensure that you feel comfortable with our course of action and recommendations. 


Does Insurance Cover Medical Detox?

One of the many questions that you may have when it comes to detoxing from alcohol is does insurance cover the cost of this important care. You can always reach out to an addiction professional at our treatment facility for more information, however, in most cases your private insurance coverage will cover all of if not most of your time in detox. Not only that, but when you’re struggling with addiction it’s important that you continue to receive addiction treatments after detox which is why insurance will also often cover inpatient treatment as well as outpatient treatment
