Outpatient Drug Detox Treatment

Our main goal is not just to flush out the toxins but to set the table for a complete rehabilitation afterward. Detox is only the first step in the journey to sobriety. The important thing is to address the core issue of addiction—whether emotional or psychological—and we do this through a series of experiential and holistic methods like equine addiction treatment, yoga, and meditation, gong sound therapy, gardening, acupuncture, and massage.

Ranch Creek Recovery handles outpatient drug detox within 40-50 miles around our headquarters in Temecula and Murrieta, CA. If your symptoms are severe, we would strongly suggest that you enter residential detox at our holistic addiction treatment center.

How Long Until Drug Addiction Treatment Centers Flush the Toxins?

Drug and alcohol rehab centers typically offer outpatient drug detox programs. It works just like it sounds. Instead of staying in the facility, you are free to go home and even continue to work in your office while undergoing treatment as long you strictly follow the protocols. There’s no hard rule on how long the whole outpatient detox will last. Aside from the type of drugs you are using, the doctor will also consider other risk factors such as the history of mental disturbances in your family or history of drug or alcohol use. Each individual will react differently to the procedure and close monitoring is necessary. Normally detox programs range from three days to a month, not counting the rehab and therapy that typically follows. At Ranch Creek, we’ve found that it’s best if patients don’t think of the timeline as a deadline. Instead, we encourage our clients to think of it as a goal.

 

What Happens During Outpatient Detox?

Detox, short for detoxification, is the process of removing the remnants and byproducts of a drug or drugs from the body. In most cases of addiction, the body will go through withdrawal, in which the body reacts to the absence of the substance. Withdrawal runs the gamut from unpleasant to horrific depending on the drug and length of addiction.

 

Benefits of Outpatient Detox

The main benefit is obvious—your schedule is not interrupted since you are free to leave the drug and alcohol rehab center and continue to live your life. Patients don’t have to take a leave of absence from work or school, can maintain relationships and attend regular activities and pastimes. Outpatient detox is generally cheaper compared to a residential drug detox as well, making it the ideal setup for those with limited resources for treatment.

 

Drawbacks of Outpatient Detox

Outpatient detox is less comprehensive than inpatient or residential detox. It cannot provide twenty-four-hour assistance to manage withdrawal, and because the patient returns home, it cannot remove access to drugs or alcohol the way a strictly controlled inpatient environment can. Our main goal is not just to flush out the toxins but to set the table for a complete rehabilitation afterward. Detox is only the first step in the journey to sobriety. The important thing is to address the core issue of addiction—whether emotional or psychological—and we do this through a series of experiential and holistic methods like equine addiction treatment, yoga, and meditation, gong sound therapy, gardening, acupuncture, and massage.
