Detox is the first stage in the addiction treatment and recovery process because your body must rid itself of all toxins associated with a drug or alcohol addiction before you can begin your long-term treatment. And while many people go through their detox at a care facility or hospital, we recommend looking into home detox, as detoxing from home is more comfortable and just as effective.

Going through detox at home is even more important as we attempt to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. This article discusses three of the most important reasons to receive your detox treatment at home during the pandemic as opposed to at a treatment center.

Three Reasons to Detox From Home During Covid-19:

  1. It’s More Comfortable: The Covid era is stressful enough as it is, so why add stress by having to check into a hospital or treatment center for your detox? Since you can receive high quality detox care from the comfort of your home, we recommend avoiding the unnecessary stress of going to a facility.
  1. It’s Safer: While it is important for everyone to stay home as much as possible during the pandemic, it is even more important for those with compromised immune systems. And for those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, your immune systems are already compromised trying to fight those addictions. So, we recommend playing it safe and receiving your treatment from home.
  1. Your Family Can Support You: By staying at home, you can begin your recovery with your family and friends close by. If you go to a treatment center, it will be much more difficult to see your family given the numerous Covid-related restrictions in place. Recovering with your family close by is much more comfortable and less stressful, leading to another good reason to detox from home.

As you consider your detox options, remember that nobody is “too sick” to detox from home. In fact, detoxing from home helps relieve the added stress that comes with more severe drug or alcohol addiction cases, as you avoid crowded hospitals and treatment centers.
