Outpatient Detox Q & A
What is outpatient detox?
Approximately 21 million Americans live with a substance abuse disorder, but only around 10% ever receive treatment. 90265 Medical Group aims to make addiction treatment accessible with outpatient detox that can help you reduce and then eliminate your dependency on drugs or alcohol without disrupting your life. Like changing your diet, finding a program to help you stop abusing drugs and alcohol has to be sustainable for long-term success.
Outpatient detox programs allow you to live at home and maintain your job and healthy recreational activities while you receive treatment.
90265 Medical Group offers only medical treatment for addiction, but you can combine their treatment with other counseling services and support groups. Your provider can help you explore your options to find additional resources during your outpatient detox program.
What should I expect during an outpatient detox program?
Your outpatient detox program begins with a psychiatric evaluation. This assessment allows your doctor to create a customized treatment program to meet your specific needs. When you start medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as part of an outpatient detox program, you need to be in the early stages of withdrawal to optimize the effectiveness of your treatment. Your first appointment lasts at least two hours, so your team can monitor the effects of your MAT and further customize your treatment plan.
Then, depending on your needs, you have regular appointments at 90265 Medical Group to receive your MAT and track your progress. In the beginning, you might need daily appointments. However, as time passes and your detox progresses, the frequency of your appointments decreases, and your provider tapers your MAT, eventually ending your reliance on all medications.
How do I know if outpatient detox is right for me?
The addiction specialists at 90265 Medical Group provide comprehensive psychiatric and medical evaluations to identify the best treatments to help you through your recovery. They assess your lifestyle, health, and risk of relapse to ensure that outpatient detox is the best approach for you.
