Quitting drugs and alcohol abruptly can cause severe withdrawal symptoms that may be deadly for some. Heavy drinkers who suffer from alcohol use disorder face the risk of a severe form of withdrawal called delirium tremens, which can cause seizures, hallucinations, and even death. But many of today’s drug and alcohol detox treatmentsinvolve the use of medications that can treat specific symptoms or eliminate symptoms completely.
Drug detox may be safest when performed as a medical detox at an inpatient rehab center where patients can withdraw from substances while receiving 24/7 medical care and supervision. However, some detox treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis, such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for heroin and opioid use disorders. MAT for opioid addiction requires patients to visit the outpatient rehab center daily to receive their dose of methadone, which reduces drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
