Reasons to Avoid Detoxing at Home
First of all, the symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal often lead to relapse. There is a very small chance that you will stay sober for any significant length of time if you opt to undergo opioid withdrawal at home. Secondly, the symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal are unpredictable and they can result in serious complications when left untreated.
Medical detox serves as much more than a safe place to ride out uncomfortable symptoms. It serves as an essential first step on the journey of recovery. While in detox you are exposed to therapeutic intervention, holistic treatment methods and critical recovery tools. You are given medications to help ease the pain of withdrawal and make your transition into sobriety smooth. You undergo an important addiction assessment that helps your clinical team develop a personalized treatment plan. And you establish bonds with other individuals committed to sobriety. At Princeton Detox & Recovery Center we do much more than help our clients with a safe and pain-free opioid withdrawal. We prepare them for the road ahead.
