Benefits of At-Home Cocaine Detox
There are ample benefits for selecting a home detox versus going through the uncomfortable process in a sterile detox facility. Some of these benefits include:
One way of protecting privacy during the detox process is to obtain these supportive medical services in the comfort of one’s home. Helping someone complete the detox at home can begin the recovery process while ensuring that these services are fully discreet.
Going through the detox process among your familiar surroundings is much less stressful when compared to a detox facility. Being at home also means having access to supportive family members.
Having one-on-one medical oversight provides the utmost level of care, and gives the individual the confidence that they will be carefully supervised throughout the detox and withdrawal process.
Support for Family
A home detox nurse and his or her team can also support family members during their loved one’s detox phase, and prepare them for the next step of rehabilitation and what it will entail.
Next Steps After Home Detox from Cocaine
Once the drug has been successfully removed from the body and withdrawal symptoms have generally subsided, the next step of the recovery process is a structured addiction treatment program. Again, there are options, such as whether an inpatient treatment program or an outpatient program is the better fit. Each has merit, so the decision as to which one to enter will likely be dictated by the severity and history of the cocaine addiction and personal resources.
Relapse prevention is the top priority in early recovery when individuals are most vulnerable. For this reason, it is advised that, along with a treatment program, the individual participate in a recovery support group, such as N.A., A.A., or SMART Recovery. All of these steps—detox, active treatment program, and peer support—are stepping stones towards a new life in recovery.
