Why Choose Mississippi Detox Centers?

You have recovery options, and one of them is to attempt to detox at home. But, honestly, the majority of people who take this path end up relapsing. Withdrawal symptoms can be absolutely punishing.

The best choice is to choose a professional detox in MS. They:

  • Use medication and other methods to alleviate cravings and discomfort
  • Provide emotional support
  • Treat secondary mental and medical disorders as well
  • Prepare patients to transition into rehab

They can also literally save the lives of people detoxing from benzodiazepines, opioids, and alcohol. These substances can cause seizures and coma as withdrawal symptoms, and medical care during detox may be a necessity.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • In 2015, 12.3 individuals out of every 100,000 people in the state were killed by drug overdose, which demonstrates the need for detoxification services.
  • In March 2013, 2.2 percent of individuals receiving substance abuse treatment in Mississippi were in hospital inpatient detoxification, 1.2 percent were in inpatient detox, and 0.3 percent were in outpatient detox.
  • Between 2010 and 2014, 6,000 people a year were treated for alcohol abuse or dependence in Mississippi; this was a mere 4.6 percent of the people who needed those services.
  • Between 2010 and 2014, 5,000 individuals a year were treated for drug abuse or dependence in Mississippi; this was a mere 7.5 percent of the people who needed those services.

How Long is Mississippi Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol is processed out of the body in seven to 10 days, but that doesn’t mean that alcohol detox consistently lasts for about a week. Each person’s needs are different. For example, a person with a severe, long-term alcohol addiction will needs more time in treatment than a person with a relatively mild, short-term addiction.

Other factors in detox duration include:

  • Any co-occurring conditions
  • Prior periods of withdrawal, which cause kindling
  • Whether or not you are able to follow treatment directions
  • Your overall health
  • Whether or not you also have an addiction to other substances

How Long is Mississippi Drug Detox?

Like MS alcohol detox, MS drug detox varies from participant to participant. The first factor to take into consideration is the primary substance of abuse. If, for example, you have an opioid use disorder, you could need three full weeks of detox treatment. Most marijuana users need considerably less time.

Other factors that dictate the length of detox include:

  • Whether more than one substance is an issue
  • Your addiction history
  • The need for co-occurring conditions to be treated as well
  • The need for medical supervision round-the-clock

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in MS

There are inpatient and outpatient detox programs. Inpatient centers ask patients to live on the premises for the entirety of their treatment. This is great for people who need distance from their daily life to focus, as well as those who need 24/7 supervision for medical reasons. Outpatient centers ask patients to come to the facility each day for scheduled treatment, which is ideal for people who have children to raise and work to go to.
