How Long is Minnesota Alcohol Detox?

When people enter rehab, they typically pick a pre-set length, like 30, 60, or 90 days. That isn’t the case with detox. Each person will need a unique period dependent on a number of factors.

How long you will need to remain in alcohol detox depends on:

  • Your addiction history
  • Whether you are using drugs as well
  • Your physical and psychological health
  • Whether you need other conditions treated simultaneously
  • Whether you enter inpatient or outpatient care

How Long is Minnesota Drug Detox?

The amount of time you will need to continue detox treatment for a drug use disorder will also vary, depending upon your situation. The first thing that has an impact is the primary drug of use. Opioids, stimulants, and hallucinogens are all eliminated from your system at different rates.

And, the state of your system also plays a role. If you have a condition (either mental or physical) that is worsened by withdrawal or that worsens withdrawal, that will complicate things and extend the amount of time you need.

You can also expect to need more time if:

  • You have previously experienced seizures with withdrawal
  • You experience suicidal, homicidal, or psychotic urges
  • You have a severe or long-term addiction
  • You are abusing multiple drugs
  • You don’t have any support at home

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in MN

One of the decisions you will need to make is whether to go to inpatient or outpatient detox.

Inpatient detox requires participants to live at the facility round-the-clock for the entire time they are detoxing. It’s like living in a dormitory. This is great if you need to step away from your daily life in order to focus fully on your recovery.

If the inpatient treatment involves hospitalization, you can also expect 24/7 medical supervision. Some people face great danger during withdrawal. Opioid, benzodiazepine, and alcohol users may experience life threatening symptoms and require a nursing staff to keep them stable.

Outpatient detox only requires participants to attend treatment sessions daily. The rest of their time can be spent as they prefer. This means people can take care of their families and got to their jobs. However, severe addictions often need a far more intense detox program.
