Why Choose Delaware Detox Centers?

Many people think they know what it will be like to detox at home, but the truth is they are often misinformed. They believe detox takes only a few days and that people who go cold turkey have to just sweat it out and be done with it. This is far from the case for most recovering addicts.

  • Detox can take days, weeks, or months depending on the severity of one’s dependence, the drug one was using, and many other variables. To go through this at home when you are unsure of the timeline isn’t safe.
  • The withdrawal symptoms associated with many addictions can worsen suddenly and without warning. This is why it is so much better to detox in a professional facility.
  • Detox can, in some cases, produce deadly withdrawal symptoms. These can be managed and treated in a facility but often not at home.

Choosing Delaware detox centers ensures you can recover safely from your dependence instead of going through a highly difficult period without any help at all.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, cocaine is highly available in Delaware and the demand for the drug has not diminished over time like in some other states.
  • The number of treatment admissions associated with opioids has continued to rise in Delaware. From 2005 to 2011, these numbers went from a little under 300 to over 1600 (Delaware Health and Social Services).
  • Sadly, only 9.9 percent of Delaware residents aged 12 and older suffering from alcohol dependence actually received treatment between 2010 and 2014, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
  • Only 29 percent of individuals in the state who needed treatment for illicit drug dependence actually received it.

How Long is Delaware Alcohol Detox?

Detoxing from alcohol in a Delaware alcohol detox center can take several weeks or longer. This is simply due to a series of intense variables associated with this withdrawal syndrome.

  • Delirium tremens is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal that may or may not occur.
  • Many times, it can only be detected about 72 hours after withdrawal begins.
  • When and if a person does experience delirium tremens, they will often need to be sedated for the duration of their symptoms.

We can help you find alcohol detox centers that will suit your needs and allow you to stay close to home. Just call 302-206-9888(Who Answers?) today to get the help you need.

How Long is Delaware Drug Detox?

Drug detox can take varying lengths of time, especially because different drugs cause different withdrawal symptoms, syndromes, and lengths. For example, cocaine withdrawal can take months because of its long-lasting and devastating psychological symptoms. Opioid withdrawal, on the other hand, often only takes about a week, maybe two at the longest.

Of course, this length can still depend heavily on the individual patient and the severity of their dependence on a certain drug. Some people become so dependent on opioids that they need to be stabilized on medications like methadone or buprenorphine for quite a long time before they can be fully weaned off these drugs.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in DE

Inpatient care can often be a safer option for many individuals, especially those who need extra help during withdrawal. For example, a study published in Psychiatric Quarterly states that patients who are suffering from high psychiatric severity and/or a lack of support at home will often need inpatient care to safely navigate recovery. It can also be a necessary option for

  • Individuals who do not have a safe home environment
  • Individuals who would have regular access to their drug of choice at home
  • Individuals with severe addictions or dependencies
  • Individuals who are concerned they will relapse if left alone
  • Individuals who have relapsed in the past and require follow-up care
  • Individuals who are addicted to drugs with notoriously dangerous withdrawal syndromes such as benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, and alcohol
