In the state of Alabama there are a few different types of drug and alcohol detoxification services available. More specifically, there are over 150 centers that provide support for drug and alcohol addiction and detox services, 40 of which even accept Medicaid and 11 of which provide faith-based Christian treatment services. When you have decided to stop using drugs and/or alcohol, the body goes through a process known as detoxification or 'detox' for short, and this is something which should always be overseen by treatment professionals in Alabama for a number of reasons. First, you want to make sure detox is a safe process and you also want to make sure there is a smooth transition into the appropriate treatment program if this is essential to one's sustained abstinence once the body detoxes from drugs and/or alcohol. Actual treatment is a separate process, so Alabama residents who have experienced chronic addiction will want to keep that in mind if they want to avoid relapse.
In Alabama, individuals who are experiencing the types of detox symptoms where they may need medical intervention should seek detox services at an inpatient detox center or perhaps a residential drug rehab facility which provides comprehensive detox services. Alcohol detox is an example of this and certain prescription drugs also, because these types of detox sometimes need to be managed safely with medication or overseen very closely until the person has stabilized. Other types of detox also require a robust system of support although the client doesn't experience any life threatening symptoms, primarily because the individual experiences withdrawal symptoms so severe that unless they have this support they will very likely relapse. This is the case with opiates for example, such as heroin and prescription pain killers, and these symptoms can be well managed in a detox facility such as an inpatient or residential detox or drug rehab program which can ensure the individual doesn't cave to severe cravings or punishing withdrawal symptoms.
