Why Choose Vermont Detox Centers?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, medical detoxification is often the first step in addiction treatment and recovery. Though it must be followed with rehab, it is a step you shouldn’t skip, especially if you are suffering from a serious dependency syndrome.

  • Going through detox without medical help is dangerous.
  • People who detox at home or without the help of a professional treatment facility are much more likely to relapse.
  • Detox can be unpredictable, which is why people are urged to seek professional care.

If you are concerned about whether or not professional Vermont detox is the safest way for you to recover, remember that those who choose medical detox are more likely to get through withdrawal safely as well as transition easily into rehab afterward.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • As stated by the Vermont Department of Health, cocaine abuse seems to be on the rise, especially among individuals between 18 and 25 years old. In 2012, only 6.4 percent of this group reported cocaine use in the past year, but in 2014-2015, 9.3 reported cocaine use.
  • The Vermont Prescription Monitoring System states opioids were nearly two-thirds of all controlled substances dispensed to those who experienced opioid-related accidental fatalities in 2015.
  • Vermont is among the states with the highest treatment capacity rates at 7.3 to 16.5 (Vermont Department of Health).
  • However, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, only 11.8 percent of dependent Vermont residents aged 12 and older received treatment between 2009 and 2013 for alcohol dependence and only 15.7 percent received treatment for illicit drug use.

How Long is Vermont Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol detox can take quite a long time for those in Vermont detox facilities, especially when delirium tremens occurs. This syndrome can cause severe symptoms such as

  • Hallucinations
  • Confusion
  • Fear and anxiety
  • Seizures
  • Stupor
  • Delirium

Patients who experience this syndrome will often need to be placed under sedation for the duration of their symptoms, which can cause the entire process to take longer. If you believe you might be likely to experience delirium tremens, it is important to seek treatment in a detox center and to be prepared to be in the program for several weeks or longer. Call 802-588-8764(Who Answers?) to find a program that will suit your needs.

How Long is Vermont Drug Detox?

Different drugs of abuse have different withdrawal lengths. Opioids can cause a quite short withdrawal syndrome, especially short-acting opioids like heroin. Cocaine, meth, and other stimulants can cause much longer syndromes, sometimes lasting several months or longer. It is important to be aware of these variables as well as any others that might affect your treatment timeline such as

  • A more severe addiction or dependency
  • Having gone through detox already in the past
  • Requiring stabilization on a medication before detox can begin
  • Suffering from a mental illness or another type of dual-diagnosis

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in VT

Choosing between inpatient and outpatient detox centers can be difficult, but many people choose the latter because it is usually cheaper. However, if you need inpatient care—especially if you have dual-diagnosis or an unsafe home environment—you will have to seek this option.

  • Inpatient care isn’t always more expensive. You can find inpatient detox programs that are low-cost or even free, and depending on your situation, you may be able to receive the care you need without paying a dime.
  • Some inpatient facilities offer facility grants, sliding-fee scales, or other ways to make your treatment less costly.
  • Many detox centers will allow you to finance your treatment, which means you will pay for a certain amount upfront and then pay the rest in installments when you are well again.

If you need more intensive treatment, make sure to seek inpatient detox without the fear of high costs.
