There are nearly 340 drug rehab programs and resources in the state of Maryland, about 60 of which provide a variety and drug and alcohol detox services. There are a few different types of drug and alcohol detoxification services available, including drug free or medication assisted detox services. There are also both inpatient and outpatient detox available, with some of the inpatient options being drug free and holistic detox services for the most part which can be beneficial for those who want a higher quality of life free of all drugs. It is ideal to intend on pursuing further treatment after detox, because detox is only one small step on the road to full recovery. So for individuals who have struggled with chronic addiction, every effort should be made to help them engage in more extensive treatment to ensure they don't experience a relapse. Outpatient programs mostly deliver medication assisted detox services and treatment opiate dependent clients, who are given methadone or suboxone to avoid detox and most will engage in a daily regimen of such drugs.
A standard and uncomplicated detox that doesn't require medical intervention, even opiate detox, can be challenging but only lasts a few days to a week fat the most. Medical drugs are only completely essential if someone is detoxing from alcohol or certain medical drugs which could cause symptoms that are riskier, and go beyond the normal symptoms one would experience while detoxing. This is a good reason detox should always be overseen by treatment professionals in Maryland. It should also be understood that detox is not treatment, so no matter what type of drug you are detoxing from, extensive treatment is always the best answer following detox if you want to permanently live a drug free life.
