How Long is Connecticut Alcohol Detox?

Detox can take months if you’ve been addicted for a very long time. In fact, the longer you have been an alcoholic, the longer you will likely remain in detox. Certain factors can further prolong your stay in treatment such as your health, and whether you are focused on your recovery or you are taking a stand back approach in which it “doesn’t really matter.”

Generally speaking, alcohol detox is a 7-10 day process with the brunt of the symptoms of withdrawal being overcome during the first 3-5 days. Unless you struggle with DTs or other serious side effects of alcoholism, you should feel much better after about a week of complete alcohol abstinence.

How Long is Connecticut Drug Detox?

If you enter detoxification for an addiction to drugs, the amount of time that you spend in recovery will vary. Some drugs require extensive detox periods because you have to slowly wean off—benzos and methadone are specifically troublesome to overcome.

Other drugs, such as cocaine and methamphetamine, take much less time to detox from. Generally, for meth, cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs you can detox in a period of 7-10 days. Some Connecticut detox centers tout “rapid detox” but these are not recommended as they do not provide the body adequate time to release the drugs and to recover from the harsh side effects of withdrawal.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in CT

Inpatient detox is generally the preferred method of treatment for most addictions unless you have personal situations preventing you from being able to seek inpatient help. For instance, if you MUST take care of family or you cannot leave your job in order to get treatment, you’ll have to seek outpatient care. Otherwise, we recommend inpatient detox.

Here’s why:

  • You will be provided with around-the-clock care.
  • You will receive medication that helps you to remain comfortable.
  • You will have access to immediate medical treatment if life-threatening withdrawal symptoms arise.
  • You will NOT be tempted by drugs or alcohol because they will not be accessible in the facility.

It’s a tough choice, but generally it’s safer and more effective if you go straight into inpatient detox instead of wasting time trying an outpatient program first.
