Going to an AHCCCS Alcohol Detox

5 to 14 days is the usual amount of time to Detox; AHCCCS acknowledges multiple rehab facilities throughout Arizona as Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP), which approve the use of all medications approved for addiction treatment. Detoxing can be extremely challenging and overwhelming. These medications help medical detox programs and ease the process of detox and withdrawals on the brain and body. Though, this is the only part of the scope of a certified OTP. These AHCCCS partners often also provide inpatient detox and medical supervision, peer group support, case management, and general-purpose rehabilitation. Peer support resources have become progressively prevalent in the fight against addiction as they provide those in recovery with relatively affordable, long-term care resources. Peer support resources can refer to treatment options, ranging from support groups, sober living, and therapy.

Going to an Inpatient AHCCCS Rehab for Alcohol
Getting sober on your own is dangerous during the initial detox; it is also more likely to relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored atmosphere where you will get the medical attention you need and the emotional support to overcome Alcohol addiction. There are several options for inpatient addiction treatment. Rehab facilities differ by location, staff experience, therapies offered, amenities, expertise, etc.
Inpatient programs deliver the strongest level of treatment care, with medically supervised detoxification and around-the-clock care and support.
