Although the idea of entering inpatient or outpatient rehab for substance abuse can be scary, you don’t have to face withdrawal symptoms and detox alone. While you may be tempted to quit drinking or drugs cold turkey, doing so can be life-threatening. It’s especially dangerous to stop using alcohol, opioids or benzodiazepines such as Xanax without medical detoxification. In addition to being safer, medical supervision improves the likelihood of long-term recovery from addiction.
Some outpatient detox programs advertise rapid detox, but withdrawing from drugs and alcohol too quickly can be dangerous for your body. Rather than rapid detox, medically assisted drug detox at our inpatient treatment center in Maryland can help you safely free your body of the effects of alcohol and drug abuse.
