How Long is Maryland Alcohol Detox?

Detoxification comes to an end when all of the alcohol has been filtered out of your body and withdrawal symptoms have stopped. Typically, this takes seven to 10 days.

However, some people need additional time because their case is more complicated. It’s particularly important for people who are in alcohol detox to get adequate care for a proper length of time because some of the withdrawal symptoms can be quite dangerous.

Additional time may be needed for alcohol detox if:

  • You have a severe addiction
  • You have a long-term addiction
  • You have numerous previous periods of withdrawal
  • You have a secondary physical or mental condition
  • You are also abusing drugs

How Long is Maryland Drug Detox?

Alcohol all filters at a similar rate. Gin isn’t any faster or slower for the body to process than whiskey. This is what gives the seven to 10 day baseline.

But, drugs do have different timelines for detox. Stimulants, for instance, need a relatively short amount of time to detox. But, opioid withdrawal can continue for weeks. For example, methadone withdrawal kicks in 36 to 48 hours after a person’s final dose and peaks after a period of three days, but it takes three weeks to subside completely.

The length of time you will spend in detox depend upon:

  • The drugs you are abusing
  • The length and severity of your addiction
  • Your physical makeup and wellbeing
  • The presence of co-occurring conditions

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in MD

There are two types of detox centers in Maryland. These are inpatient and outpatient. In inpatient care, patient live at the facility. In outpatient care, patients live where they choose and enter the facility only for treatment-related purposes.

Patients typically choose inpatient care when they face medical risks as part of withdrawal. People detoxing from alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids can experience fatal symptoms. And, people with medical and psychiatric conditions may also be in danger during detox. It is also an attractive option for patients who need to be removed from their daily life and given a chance to focus fully on recovery.

Outpatient treatment is the type of choice for people who cannot exit their lives for days at a time. These people have jobs they need to attend and children to feed, bathe, and tuck in at the end of the day.
