Why Choose Rhode Island Detox Centers?

Choosing professional detox, especially in a local, Rhode Island detox center, is much safer than trying to go through withdrawal without any help. This is because withdrawal is one of the times in a patient’s recovery when they are most vulnerable to relapse.

  • Relapse during and after detox happens more often than any other time.
  • When a person does relapse during or after withdrawal, it can often end in an overdose, as the individual’s tolerance for their drug of abuse will have minimized considerably.
  • Without proper medical attention, many individuals are not able to determine when they are at risk for relapse or when they need additional help.

This is why choosing Rhode Island detox centers is much safer and more effective than trying to go through withdrawal on your own.

  • Have gone through alcohol withdrawal before
  • Have been drinking for more than 10 years
  • Have recently experienced a head injury
  • Commonly drink 4 to 5 pints of wine, 7 to 8 pints of beer, or 1 pint of hard liquor every day

How Long is Rhode Island Drug Detox?

Detoxing safely from any type of drug abuse takes time and patience, and certain drugs take longer to detox from than others. Stimulants, for example, can cause long-term symptoms that can suddenly reappear months or even years after detox has ended. This means detox itself must take longer than normal (often several months) so the patient can get used to this effect and learn how to cope with it.

Opioid detox usually takes less time (sometimes as little as a week or so). You may see variables in your timetable, however, because different people experience different things while in detox. In general, it is important to simply discuss your treatment with your doctor and to make sure you are both on the same page when it comes to your detox, your recovery, and your timeline.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in RI

Inpatient detox facilities offer 24-hour care in a controlled environment. Outpatient centers do not. Generally, outpatient facilities are less expensive, but if you need more intensive care, inpatient treatment is necessary. You can always find free or low-cost inpatient programs as well if you are concerned about your budget.
