Why Choose Missouri Detox Centers?

Most people who get sober attempt to stop using drugs and alcohol multiple times before they succeed. You may be one of them. It’s incredibly difficult to cease substance abuse because of the resulting withdrawal symptoms. One reason to choose Missouri detox centers is to receive relief from the mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal.

These programs also:

  • Treat secondary mental, behavioral, and physical symptoms
  • Help establish medication-assisted treatment for opioid users
  • Provide emotional support for sobriety
  • Help patients transition into rehab

There is absolutely no reason to risk certain relapse by trying to detox on your own.

How Long is Missouri Alcohol Detox?

In general, alcohol is processed out of the body in seven to 10 days. However, there are situations in which it may take much longer to detox because the circumstances are more than averagely complicated.

You can expect to spend more time in alcohol detox if:

  • Your addiction is severe
  • Your addiction is long-term
  • You are also abusing drugs
  • You have some mental or physical disorders on top of your alcohol addiction
  • You have previously been through withdrawal (this can cause a process called kindling that worsens later withdrawal periods)

To gain a better understanding of the amount of time you may need to be in a Missouri detox facility, call 573-920-3740(Who Answers?) and explore your options.

How Long is Missouri Drug Detox?

The length of drug detox, like alcohol detox, depends on a number of factors. For example, the drug being abused creates the basic timeline. Heroin withdrawal typically ends in three days, but morphine withdrawal can continue for three weeks. And, each individual drug user’s circumstances impact that baseline.

The same factors that lengthen a person’s stay in alcohol rehab also do so in drug rehab. So, your stay will be impacted by:

  • The drugs you are using
  • The length of time you have been using
  • Your overall health
  • The severity of your addiction

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in MO

There are two types of Missouri detox centers, inpatient and outpatient. People who pick inpatient treatment consent to live at the facility for the entire time they are receiving treatment. People who pick outpatient treatment live wherever they choose and attend scheduled sessions at the facility.

When you are debating about which you should choose, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recommends you consider whether:

  • You can arrive at the clinic each day
  • You have previously experienced seizures during withdrawal
  • You are able to give informed consent
  • You experience suicidal, homicidal, or psychotic urges
  • You are willing or able to follow treatment instructions
  • You have any secondary illnesses
  • You have people in your life who can help and support you at home
