Outpatient Detox

If you’ve decided to detox and start taking your life back, the next step is determining if full rehabilitation is a good fit — or even an option — for you. Your job, family or obligations may make it unrealistic for you to take extended time off to recover.

Diamond House Detox understands. That’s why we’re introducing a medically-assisted outpatient detox program. Instead of detoxing in one of our centers, you’ll be able to do so from the comfort of your own home. You’ll set up check-ins with one of our nurses, who can evaluate your progress as you move throughout the detox process.

Who Should Use Outpatient Detox?

Outpatient detox can be an excellent option for some people, but others need the structure of inpatient treatment. If independence is an integral part of your life, you may do well with outpatient treatment. Good candidates for at-home detox treatment should:

  • Be able to maintain sobriety on their own for a couple of days at a time. If you think you can make it between outpatient appointments about every other day, you can save yourself some time and money over inpatient supervised treatment.
  • Have a strong support network at home to help you avoid temptation. Even though you’re at home, you must detox in a sober environment around sober people.
  • Require flexibility to complete external tasks like caring for children or going to work. Managing a schedule can be too much for some people trying to recover. If that’s your case, you may benefit from a more disciplined routine in inpatient.
  • Have possibly spent previous time in drug and alcohol treatment. Once you’ve learned some basic coping skills to help you during moments of temptation, you’re less likely to relapse, making you a better candidate for outpatient treatment.
  • Overall healthy and without chronic health conditions.
  • Can independently go and get medical clearance or labs done prior to the appointment.
  • Have a responsible party come with you in order to manage medications during the detox process. 

Benefits of Outpatient 

Our approach to in-home outpatient treatment is similar to our residential treatment services. 

Although you’ll be going through in-home detox without constant supervision, our board certified addiction doctors will prescribe you medication to keep you more comfortable. Detoxing from drugs and alcohol can be a tumultuous time, and you’ll want to try to maintain a positive, healthful environment until you’re feeling better.

Does Outpatient Detox Work?

Yes! At Diamond House Detox, we focus on science-based rehabilitative options, including medications and therapies for addiction and co-occurring disorders. When you have the motivation to get better, they can enable you to enter recovery and stay there.
