What is Medical Detox?
Medical detox is an element of care incorporated into the start of many substance use disorder treatment programs. This type of detoxification commonly involves various treatment interventions aimed at stabilizing and managing someone throughout the acute withdrawal period.1
People who have developed significant physical dependence on certain types of substances over the course of prior problematic use often experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop using. For instance, attempts to slow or abruptly quit alcohol, benzodiazepines, or opioids can result in highly uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
