Why Choose Illinois Detox Centers?

When you’re dependent on drugs or alcohol to survive, any attempt to abruptly quit using the substance can lead to harsh withdrawal symptoms that are difficult to cope with and even difficult to treat.

Detox may occur in any of the following settings:

  • Inpatient detox
  • Hospital detox
  • Outpatient detox
  • Medical detox

How Long is Illinois Alcohol Detox?

Before you ever enter treatment for an addiction to any substance you MUST acknowledge that the amount of time you will spend in detox and rehab will vary. Alcohol detox is often the most difficult process to go through and for long-term alcoholics, the need for ongoing treatment is sometimes necessary.

Most detox programs provide for 7-10 days of treatment as the foundation of your recovery but you may require additional time to detox if you struggle with alcohol related disorders such as Delirium Tremens or other serious side effects associated with withdrawal.

How Long is Illinois Drug Detox?

Remember, detox from drugs is not a replacement for treatment. You will detox first, but long-term counseling and therapy is required to secure your recovery status and keep you on the path to sober living. The time you spend in drug detox can vary based on:

  • Your history of addiction to drugs.
  • The type of drug you are addicted to.
  • The amount of time you’ve been addicted.
  • The frequency of drug use.
  • Whether you are mentally stable.
  • Your health.
  • Whether there are co-occurring conditions such as mental illness, other addictions or physical health problems.

Don’t compare your detox to that of someone else. If you’re a newly addicted individual, chances are you can detox in the normal 7-10 day range which is average for MOST drugs (with the exception of certain prescriptions including benzodiazepines which must be slowly tapered off). If you’ve been addicted a very long time, or if you struggle with other underlying issues, you may require more time in drug detox.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in IL

Both treatment options provide you with medical intervention and support, but only inpatient detox can truly guarantee your safety during these early, but difficult days of recovery. If you have priorities such as family, work or other issues that prevent you from seeking the help of an inpatient detox center, then you can choose outpatient detox—otherwise, we recommend you go straight to inpatient care.
