Inpatient detox programs are the safest and most effective way to cleanse your body of harmful addictions. Medically aided detox by a trained physician is exactly what you need to overcome the most difficult stage of recovery.
The following sections will explain what to expect from inpatient detox at Magnolia City Detox.
Inpatient detox is a more hands-on program at an in-person facility. These assigned living quarters allow doctors to administer the detox process under direct supervision. This cleansing process allows your detox specialist to keep you accountable and encourage you during each phase of inpatient detoxification.
Contrary to the inpatient detox process, outpatient programs are less hands-on and usually administered at your discretion. This means you won’t get the same vital professional support and guidance provided by inpatient programs; it is far less efficient than inpatient treatment. That lack of accountability is a major reason many professionals don’t recommend outpatient therapy.
The entire detox process does more than treat you for a short-term introductory phase — it’s intended to be part of a permanent long-term solution to drug and alcohol abuse. A well-run detox program is designed to ensure post-detox sustainability.
The initial step of detoxification is often the most difficult to overcome. Having an inpatient physician by your side each step of the way makes this phase much easier to endure with added comfort and relief. Inpatient care is highly touted and recommended as a vital first step of the recovery process due to its emotional, mental, and physical benefits.
The key purpose of medication administration is to target withdrawal symptoms and alleviate them upon cessation. These withdrawal symptoms are often unbearable without the support of medical aid. Withdrawal symptoms can be significantly alleviated and even eliminated with ease, thanks to the help of inpatient detox programs.
Medications may become a necessary recovery aid once a physician has assessed your dependency severity and associated withdrawal symptoms. This is especially true with addictions to more powerful narcotics, as they require medication to stabilize the neuronic damage that causes many withdrawal symptoms.
Thanks to modern pharmaceutical breakthroughs, doctor-prescribed medications make withdrawal symptoms easier to manage and overcome. Many even report a relieving and relaxing experience. Though temporary, this prescription-based treatment phase might be the extra boost your recovery needs to achieve sobriety.
One of the primary benefits of inpatient detox is the strong support and hands-on guidance you can’t get from outpatient programs. You’ll get nothing less than the best family-oriented support, encouragement, and understanding from our team of dedicated physicians.

Modern medical breakthroughs have enabled doctors to help you control your addictive impulses. These detox training tools allow you to flourish beyond the detox process and into the next stages of your recovery. Speak to a medical assessment specialist to learn more about the detox process and behavioral training options.
As alluded to at the beginning of this section, well-run inpatient detox programs make detox part of the long-term solution. That means our detox process doesn’t stop at detox. After completing the detox process, your doctor will follow the program with a reassessment to see where you stand in your progress. This helps determine if further detox is needed to ensure the efficiency of the next steps.
Every case of detox is unique and, therefore, has a variable time frame depending on the individual. These processes can take days, weeks, or months, but they’re performed at your pace and on your terms. Our professionals will never rush or pressure you to proceed to the next step until you’re ready. Take that first step today by reaching out to a sympathetic treatment specialist ready to do treatment on your terms.
The detoxification process can be a difficult stretch due to the various withdrawal symptoms that occur. These symptoms, like the duration of the detox process, vary depending on the individual. Knowing what to expect from various withdrawal symptoms helps you and your doctor prepare accordingly. Bearing that in mind, here are the most common symptoms experienced during inpatient detox.
An irregular heartbeat and heart palpitations are two scary side effects many people experience after quitting substances. They’re also the reason quitting by yourself can be hazardous and even lethal. Taking proper medication as directed by a clinical physician can make this symptom bearable or even eliminate it.
It’s very common to experience mood swings and increased irritability when you stop feeding your dependency. Doctors understand this symptom and can help you through this difficult process. It takes the best physicians and a high-quality program to defeat anger episodes associated with detox withdrawal symptoms. You can depend on these top-notch traits and more at Magnolia City Detox.
Another uncomfortable withdrawal symptom is the uncontrollable tremors that can riddle your body. This is your body’s mental response to substance cravings and subsequent neuron misfirings. As troubling as this symptom may be, it is an encouraging sign that the detox process is working. Think of this symptom as a tell-tale indicator that your neuronic frequencies are restoring what substance abuse destabilized. Like most symptoms on this list, doctor-recommended prescriptions can manage or eliminate tremors.
Substance abuse cessation puts your body into “fight or flight” mode because it deprives the source of your dependency. This causes anxiety neurons to rise as a result. If left untreated, these elevated anxiety levels can lead to depression, relapse, or even death in the most severe cases. Allow Magnolia City Detox the opportunity to show you how inpatient detox can ease your pain and anxiety symptoms.
It’s common to develop some form of insomnia throughout the detoxification process. This is due to the body being starved of the substance it has depended on for so long — your mind craves the substance like our bodies crave food. Fortunately, you can get the sleep you need with a doctor in your corner and the right medications, tools, and training afforded you by our dedicated team.
Substance detox is the gateway to the main recovery process of your sobriety program. Whether you require individual, group, or other main therapy programs, detox is the first step before proceeding any further. In essence, inpatient detox is the all-important first step that sets the tone for how the rest of your recovery will go. That’s why detox is often the longest process, as thorough detoxification makes for an easier recovery.
Magnolia City Detox is wholeheartedly dedicated to completely absolving your struggle with substance abuse. That’s why we design our continuum of care options with your long-term sobriety in mind. A variety of thorough after-care and continuum options are available to help you achieve and maintain sobriety. Here are some of the post-treatment therapy options we offer.
Residential treatment is specifically for individuals who have achieved a level of sobriety that is becoming self-sustainable. This means a patient has moved beyond the need for detox and full-service recovery and is now living an independent life.
This phase has minimal monitoring but provides the same 24-hour access to our therapists and medical team. In this phase, your doctor will help you apply the tools you’ve learned in recovery to your everyday life. This includes replacing addiction behaviors with other hobbies and activities and sharing relapse prevention tactics.
These programs are for individuals who do not require medication and have achieved a certain level of sobriety. In this treatment phase, patients have little to no withdrawal symptoms or cravings. This stabilization refers to removing or minimizing the medications treating withdrawal symptoms and cravings. In turn, this allows your body to naturally stabilize the neuronic balances that substance abuse once destabilized.
Every successful sobriety path starts with an efficient detoxification program. You’ll have nothing less than the best detoxification experts and processes to get you on the fast track to a happy, sober life.
Magnolia City Detox makes those dreams a reality every day, with professional tools to help you or a loved one achieve and maintain sobriety. All you need to do is walk through the open door provided by our caring team of recovery experts.
