It may sound easier to detox in the comfort of your home, but you may need medical support to help you through it. Trying to fight this alone may do more harm than good. It can even be dangerous.
Even if you have a mild case, we strongly advise talking to a medical professional to make sure at-home detox is safe for you. Here’s why you should work with a medically trained professional.
You May Be at Risk of an Extreme Withdrawal
Withdrawal symptoms are a natural part of detoxing. However, you’re still depriving the body from what made it function normally. In the most extreme cases, side effects may include shock, seizures, heart attacks, strokes, hallucinations, delirium, and vomiting while asleep.
Our medical professionals are here to keep watch over you in case of an emergency.
Home May Be Part of the Problem
Your environment and the people in it can have a major influence over your behavior. If you try to detox at home, and being home exacerbates the problem, you’re more likely to relapse. If this sounds like you, then you would benefit from a change of scenery.
