Can’t I just detox on my own?

Detoxing without medication and monitoring can be dangerous, especially if you have been using alcohol or benzodiazepines. Some of these dangers can include seizures and even death. Even if you are not at risk, you may feel extremely sick or very uncomfortable, which significantly increase your risk of relapse and cause you to start drinking or using drugs again. It is often much safer and more comfortable to detox in a medical setting. Please do speak with an addiction treatment professional to determine what will be the best detox plan for you.

How long will detox take?

On average, detox takes 5 days, but can range from 3 to 10 days. However, your exact length of stay depends on a variety of factors: the substance(s) you are using, the amount of substance(s) you are using, and for how long you have been using the substance(s).
 

How much does detox cost?

Each individual has different treatment needs and so cost varies based on type of treatment program and length of treatment. Whether or not an individual has insurance coverage and the type of coverage included also influences cost.
