The MD Home Detox Team
MD Home Detox provides detailed, responsive at-home drug and alcohol detox in Colorado. Get sober right at home in a safe, comfortable atmosphere with our detox professionals.
To begin with this statistic, a number of Coloradans currently struggle with substance abuse. Hence, for those struggling, finding help is important. Nevertheless, our Colorado detox program can provide the first step toward getting sober. In fact, MD Home Detox offers safe detox, all from the comfort of one’s home. Finally, we monitor patients to make sure they stay safe.
Additionally, our expert staff is trained to help people ready to put addiction behind them. Last but not least, they can move on to the next step in treatment without the fog of drugs as well as alcohol.
A person just starting treatment for drug and alcohol addiction begins with detox. Furthermore, this process allows the body to release toxins built up during substance abuse. In fact, many people go to a hospital or facility for detox. However, others still prefer to stay at home. Therefore, for this reason, we provide a home detox plan that lets people get well while staying home.
First, detox can take anywhere from a few days to around 10 days. Second, medical experts in the person’s home monitor them during detox as well. Third, they can provide medications that ease as well as stop withdrawal symptoms. Fourth, they can help decide how long the detox process will last for each person for instance.
Moreover, home detox begins when we arrive and provide a full assessment of a person’s medical condition as well. Additionally, we assess any mental health issues they may have. As a result, we create the right detox plan for their needs.
As a matter of fact, we provide continuous supervision. Furthermore, during the experience, the doctor monitors the person’s progress. As well, a nurse remains in the home to keep the person safe and comfortable.
First and foremost, Colorado is known for its beautiful scenery, including the Rocky Mountains. Thus, residents and tourists alike enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, rafting, as well as bicycling. Additionally, Colorado hosts many excellent museums, performance venues, and cultural events. Having said that, unfortunately, the state is not immune to the perils of addiction to drugs and alcohol.
For example, studies show the state has a need for treatment programs like home detox. Furthermore, in January 2021, the Colorado Substance Abuse Trend and Response Task Force released a study documenting addiction treatment in the state as well.
Thus, treatment admissions by the primary drug in 2019 include:
Consequently, from 2018 to 2019, admission rates for substance abuse treatment across Colorado increased in at least 1 category. The 6 categories include alcohol, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamines, as well as prescription opioids.
The results are as follows:
At-home detox can work for 2 different situations. First, it’s a viable option for someone new to trying to get sober. Therefore, Colorado at-home detox can work for many. Especially those who have come to terms with their addiction but have not previously gotten treatment.
Additionally, it can help someone who has tried treatment before and found it didn’t work. They find themselves frustrated with the idea of going to yet another clinic. All in all, trying an at-home detox may, in turn, be the breakthrough treatment they need.
First, an initial assessment will be made of each person. We assess their physical and mental health. As a result, we can decide if they are a good candidate for our program.
For instance, someone who doesn’t have a severe addiction that may result in dangerous withdrawal symptoms often qualifies for our care. Additionally, if the person’s home environment is healthy, this helps.
At-home detox provides many of the same services as the kind that takes place in a hospital or clinic. First, we begin by assessing each individual. As a result, we understand their specific medical and psychological needs. Second, we design a program that meets those unique needs. Third, a doctor monitors the person’s progress from start to finish. Furthermore, a nurse stays in the home 24/7. They provide guidance throughout the process and any needed medications.
Consequently, withdrawal symptoms occur for most people going through detox. To add, they can be physical as well as emotional in nature. Nevertheless, our medical and nursing staff will determine if any meds are needed and make sure the person has them. Additionally, care will be taken to make sure the individual eats healthy and gets their sleep. All in all, at-home detox provides overall care through what can be a trying situation.
When it comes to Colorado detox at home, many benefits exist. They include:
A reason many people hesitate to begin detox is fear of withdrawal symptoms. Moreover, they can feel uncomfortable and even painful. Because of this, our at-home detox program fortunately helps relieve withdrawal symptoms.
Common withdrawal symptoms include:
• Nausea and vomiting
• Muscle aches
• Change in blood pressure and heart rate
Furthermore, people with severe alcohol addictions may develop delirium tremens or the DTs during detox for instance. Symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, as well as seizures. Last, but not least, these symptoms can, in fact, be life-threatening, unfortunately.
Insurance companies understand that addiction to drugs and alcohol is an illness. Thankfully, in fact, most companies offer coverage for different types of addiction treatment. Therefore, customers can call their insurance company and ask questions about what they cover for instance as well.
Furthermore, they can find out what options they have. In addition, the insurance rep can provide info about any out-of-pocket costs as well. Moreover, they can also make sure to get prior approval for detox. In fact, many plans require prior approval in order to pay for or reimburse costs.
Fortunately, MD Home Detox can also help potential clients with insurance verification.
Once a person completes our detox program, they feel much better. In fact, having a clear head means they feel ready to tackle the next step in treatment. Some people move into a residential program. Alternatively, many opt for outpatient treatment. Both choices include vital components like individual and group therapy. Additionally, many programs offer holistic therapy. This includes things like meditation, acupuncture, and yoga, for example.
Another option involves living in a sober living home. These allow people to come and go, including meeting work as well as school commitments for instance. Additionally, they also have access to continued therapy sessions. Once formal treatment ends, aftercare, therefore, plays an important role. For example, this can include continuing private therapy or going to a support group. In fact, the more treatment a person receives, the more likely they are to stay in long-term recovery.
