Medical detox is one of the safest options for people recovering from addiction to substances such as heroin, fentanyl, and alcohol.

It is not a substitute for comprehensive addiction treatment services received at a Florida rehab center or elsewhere.

Medical detox treatments vary from one another depending on factors such as the substance being used and the patient’s medical history. Detox for opioids might involve specific, FDA-approved medications, such as buprenorphine and methadone, to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, while medical detox for marijuana may utilize various symptomatic medications to manage withdrawal.4 Medical management of acute alcohol withdrawal can help reduce the risk of delirium tremens, which is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal characterized by confusion, hallucinations, and seizures.5

Before entering into a rehab facility, it is important to consider what type of facility is best suited for your individual needs. Traditionally, there are two types of treatment facilities: inpatient and outpatient.
Inpatient treatment programs are beneficial to several different kinds of patients. Inpatient programs (where the individual lives at the facility) are a good choice for someone with a physical addiction, or someone who lacks support at home. Outpatient recovery program facilities are a good option for those struggling with a strictly psychological addiction who wish to maintain their regular lives while undergoing treatment.
Individuals who fall into certain demographic groups can look for rehab facilities that specialize in treating people from the same background. Many facilities treat teens, people of certain minority groups, and others who have unique treatment needs.What Are the Signs of Drug Addiction?
