Kansas Detox Centers for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

Kansas can’t be described with a single word because the state blends small-town, rural charm with the delights of the big city. This means residents are as likely to take advantage of high-end foodie culture in Wichita, as they are to go hunting in the 300,000 acres of public and one million acres of private land open each season to hunters. But, none of these activities bring pleasure to people struggling with a drug and/or alcohol addiction.

If you or someone you love has an addiction, the first treatment step is detoxification. Call 800-483-2193(Who Answers?) to speak to an addiction counselor who will match your needs to existing Kansas Detox Centers. We have gathered information about the best programs in Lawrence, KS and Topeka, KS, as well as others across the state.

Why Choose Kansas Detox Centers?

When a person is dependent on drugs and/or alcohol, any attempt to stop or reduce their use results in crippling withdrawal symptoms. This prevents so many people from entering recovery. They simply can’t take the discomfort. But, detox centers in Kansas help patients manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, detox can occur in a variety of settings and at multiple levels of intensity. For benzodiazepine, opioid, and alcohol addicts, detox will be quite intense, as withdrawal from these substances can be life threatening. While, marijuana and stimulant users may need considerably fewer interventions during this stage of their recovery. Kansas programs provide a range of care to meet everyone’s needs.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • Youth overdose rates increased more than four-fold between 2003 and 2015. Experts point to a treatment gap as a possible cause, meaning detox in some of these instances would have saved lives.
  • Between 2010 and 2014, 11,000 Kansas citizens age 12 and older per year received treatment (including detox) for their alcohol dependence. That’s only 6.4 percent of the people who needed it.
  • Between 2010 and 2014, 6,000 Kansas citizens age 12 and older per year received treatment (including detox) for their alcohol dependence. That’s only 15.1 percent of the people who needed it.
  • In 2015, there were 329 drug overdose deaths in Kansas. This number would have been decreased by participation in professional treatment, including detox.

How Long is Kansas Alcohol Detox?

The first thing it is important to acknowledge is that detox isn’t a replacement for formal rehab treatment. So, the time periods discussed here only apply to the first stage of treatment. You should also allow time for formal, structured Kansas rehab once detox is finished.

An alcohol detox program extends from the final alcohol use until the body has filtered all alcohol out of your system. Typically, this takes between seven and 10 days. If you have behavioral, mental, or medical issues on top of addiction, you may need to spend a lengthier period of time in detox because your case is more complicated and requires special care.

How Long is Kansas Drug Detox?

As with alcohol detox, drug detox is also not a replacement for rehab, and the length varies on a case by case basis. The length of time you will spend in detox depends on multiple factors, like:

  • Your addiction history
  • The drug of use
  • The length of use
  • The amounts being used
  • Your mental and physical health
  • The number of drugs being used

If you are a long-term, chronic user, expect to spend as long as a couple of weeks before the bulk of the withdrawal symptoms abate. However, people with a less intense addiction may need as few as five days of detox. It truly depends.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in KS

The two forms of both rehab at detox are inpatient and outpatient. If you enter an inpatient facility, you will be expected to reside at the center for the duration of your treatment. If, on the other hand, you opt for outpatient care, you get to reside where you wish and are only required to enter the facility for regularly scheduled treatments. Often, this means daily visits.

If you have a family to care for or a job to attend, you may be forced to choose outpatient detox. However, if you have a severe addiction, have secondary conditions that must be treated along with your withdrawal symptoms, or face serious health risk during detox (as alcohol, opioid, and benzodiazepine users do), you need inpatient treatment. The medical care provided is critical when your health is in danger.
