There are around 165 drug rehab programs and resources in the state of Hawaii, with less than 15 providing a variety and drug and alcohol detox services. In the state of Hawaii there are a few different types of drug and alcohol detoxification services available, including outpatient programs which primarily deliver services using medications such as methadone, and inpatient and residential detox facilities which also provide medication assisted detox services or perhaps non-medications assisted detox services in a holistic drug free setting. Before choosing an outpatient detox option that is commonly utilized by opiate addicted clients, you want to make sure this is something you take into consideration fully by thinking about what the future might hold if you choose such an option in lieu of a drug free option. Yes, a drug free detox is more challenging but in the end you won't be dependent to any drug medical or illicit, and this makes your quality of life much higher in the long run.
For individuals who are experiencing certain detox symptoms which need medical and professional oversight in an inpatient detox facility, detox services are not a luxury but an absolute necessity. Alcohol detox is an example of something which can be very risky if not managed by treatment professionals, who may need to administer medication on a short-term basis to ensure the client doesn't experience seizures or worse. This is also the case with certain medical drugs. Being in an inpatient detox facility regardless of the type of drug you are detoxing from is an essential part of a more extensive treatment process, because it is a much smoother transition into a program which can treat the actual causes of the problem and not just its symptoms. This is what in essence "treats" the addiction, while detox is not actual treatment in itself and the two steps should not be confused.
