What are your Options after Medical Detox?

What are your Options after Medical Detox?

You must be aware that addiction treatment commences with detox or medical detox in cases of severe addiction. During the detox, you would cleanse your system of all the toxins and experience certain withdrawal symptoms in the process. With time these symptoms fade away and you are fit enough to exit detox. 

But what happens after that? Do you go back home or do you still need a few therapy sessions? Let’s find out. 

Post Detox Treatment Options

Addiction treatment does not end after completing detox, certainly not for the ones with severe addiction. Here’s what happens after completing detox: 

  1. You can return home

This is often the first and most favorable option for those finishing detox. You are allowed to go home after detox, however, that isn’t recommended. Returning home after detox increases your chances of relapse and brings you back for detox. Thus, it is always advised to go for inpatient care after detox. 

  1. You can enter inpatient care 

Inpatient care is the most recommended option after detox. It teaches you coping techniques to save yourselves from relapse. Inpatient care is especially recommended for you if you are severely addicted to substances. 

  1. You can go to a sober living home

Sober living homes are similar to inpatient care but the level of clinical care differs. You can go to a sober living home if you weren’t too deep into addiction. The therapies won’t be as strict as those in inpatient care. Sober living homes are just as effective as inpatient care.
