A Guide to At-Home Detox
Detoxing from alcohol and drugs isn’t just uncomfortable, it’s downright dangerous. Withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, or benzodiazepines cause symptoms including hallucinations, seizures, tremors, fever, and in some cases, death. Aside from physical symptoms, there are a wide array of psychological responses to withdrawal, including severe anxiety and delusions. A safe, healthy detox requires medical attention and recovery coaching support.
Until recently, the only detox options available to addicts were emergency rooms, hospitals, or specialty detox clinics. Unfortunately, hospitals and emergency rooms are often inexperienced in treating withdrawal symptoms. Specialty detox clinics excel at treating the physical symptoms of withdrawal, but with the opioid epidemic in full swing, they are often uncomfortable, overcrowded, understaffed, and unable to offer emotional support and counseling. Inexperienced hospitals and overcrowded detox facilities have left patients searching for other detox options.
Fortunately, Life Assurance Recovery offers detox services that combines all the comforts of home, the medical expertise of board-certified physicians, and the emotional support from certified recovery coaches: At-Home Detox.
The theory behind At-Home Detox is simple: instead of checking into a detox facility, hospital, or doing it alone, patients are treated right in their own homes by licensed, board-certified physicians and recovery coaches. This offers patients a higher level of care, with 1-on-1 attention and personalized treatment plans. This peaceful home treatment environment offers a better opportunity to gather patient background, usage habits, frequency of use, and more. Not only is At-Home Detox more comfortable than the alternatives, it is a safer, more effective method of treatment.
With Life Assurance Recovery’s At-Home Detox, licensed, board-certified physicians work in tandem with recovery coaches to treat patients in the comfort of their own homes. This approach allows the clinical team to treat the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal, without the added stress of a crowded, unfamiliar environment. By treating patients at home, doctors and coaches are able to provide the highest level of 1-on-1 care, offer personalized treatment plans, and give patients a better chance at long-term recovery.
Doctors love At-Home Detox because it allows them to more closely monitor their patient’s progress. Recovery coaches love At-Home Detox because custom-tailored, 1-on-1 care creates a solid foundation for long-term recovery. Patients love At-Home Detox because they get the care they need without the discomfort and drama of medical detox clinics – no fighting with other patients about what to watch on TV, no uncomfortable beds, no rude nurses, no childish rules, no terrible food – just top-notch medical and personalized care in the comfort of your own home.
At-Home Detox is a safer, more comfortable detox alternative that offers patients a better chance at long-term recovery. Curious about At-Home Detox? Contact Life Assurance Recovery today to schedule a consultation with an addiction recovery specialist.
IMPORTANT: Detoxing from any substance without professional guidance and supervision is dangerous and can be life-threatening. Withdrawal from heroin, alcohol, or benzodiazepines can cause stroke, seizure, or even death. If you’ve run out of your drug of choice or have decided to quit cold turkey, please contact a medical detox facility, hospital, or call 911. Dying is not a good way to begin your recovery. Please, ask for help.
