Medical Detox at Banyan Delaware

The first step to long-term sobriety is a drug detox. While some people try to detox at home, doing so can be dangerous, uncomfortable, and ineffective. The best way to ensure a successful detox is with a medical detox at a professional drug detox facility like Banyan Delaware.


A Medically Monitored Detox

A medical detox is the safer and more comfortable means of detoxing from drugs or alcohol compared to trying to detox on your own. An alcohol or drug detox typically involves a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms that can vary from mild to severe depending on the person and the addiction. In some cases, withdrawal can even lead to serious health complications that can be life-threatening if medical attention is neglected. A medical detox center involves the supervision of trained staff members throughout the detox process. These medical personnel can assist if any complications arise and will also use medications as necessary to make the detox process more comfortable.

Our Delaware Detox Center

Addiction recovery is a long journey that requires support and care in order to see success. Because a detox is usually the first step of the treatment process, our drug detox center in Milford provides a safe and comfortable environment for people to begin their recovery journey.

Each patient will have 24-hour care and support available to them throughout their detox process. Our trained professionals will carefully monitor the patient’s vitals and symptoms to ensure that any problems are addressed immediately to prevent them from getting worse. To help the patients be as comfortable as possible, our staff will also prescribe and provide medications as necessary.

Not only are our experienced team members there to help with the physical symptoms of withdrawal but they are also there to provide moral support. Although medications may be able to ease physical withdrawal, the psychological withdrawal symptoms are usually what lead people to relapse. Along with intense drug cravings, many people going through withdrawal will experience mood swings, anxiety, depression, or irritability. The necessary measures meant to prevent relapse may not be in place for someone trying to detox at home. Our medical detox provides patients with a strong community of support and makes their substance of abuse unavailable to them during treatment. This controlled and safe environment keeps people on track in their recovery journey so they can progress to the next level of addiction treatment.

Because people abuse different substances, the drug detox process can vary drastically. To address the common problems associated with each type of substance, we offer different drug detox programs in Milford. This more individualized medical detox approach ensures that each patient is getting the attention and care they need for a safe and successful detox.

At Banyan Delaware, a medical detox is just the beginning. Patients who successfully complete their drug detox program will transition into our residential treatment program where they will start to focus on the root causes of their addiction and begin preparing for life outside of treatment.
