In Home Medical Detox with a Private Duty Nurse
As life continues to deteriorate due to drug or alcohol use thoughts of getting sober become front and center. The fallout from substance abuse has reached every nook and cranny of life, alienating loved ones, contributing to job losses, financial problems, and a general decline in health. The only thing standing in the way between this crumbling drug or alcohol-infused life and hope for a renewed, healthy life is the decision to get treatment.
When someone is in addiction bondage and wants to break free, it is tempting to just stop using the substance and handle it. Attempting to go it alone may appeal to your desire for confidentiality, and may even seem the financially prudent way to go, but detoxing from drugs or alcohol without supervision poses significant health risks. A sound alternative to attempting detox on your own is a safe, monitored in home medical detox.
What is an In Home Medical Detox?
A medical detox can take place either in an inpatient medical facility or in the privacy of your home. So, an in home medical detox simply means that the process of detox and withdrawal from alcohol or drugs is undergone at home under the supervision of a doctor and detox nursing team. The medical support mimics that of an inpatient facility, with identical detox services provided at each venue, home or facility.
In home detox is orchestrated by a doctor who is a board certified addiction specialist. The doctor creates the treatment plan based upon a thorough medical and psychological evaluation, and information pertaining to the substance of abuse, the duration of the abuse or addiction, and the amount of dosing. Under the doctor’s supervision, a trained detox nurse and other clinical health providers will oversee the client’s detox and withdrawal, offering medications to help ease the symptoms as well as emotional support throughout the process.
What Determines Eligibility for In Home Medical Detox?
Someone who has been assessed by one of our private duty nurse team members will review your history of use and medical conditions to determine if you are eligible for an in home detox. Many of the withdrawal symptoms can be managed effectively with OTC medications or prescription medications. Detox nurses are trained to help their patients with emotional support as well as medical assistance. The primary goal of the detox nursing team is to safely manage symptoms until detoxification is complete so the patient will be ready to receive treatment for the substance use disorder.
What are the Advantages to In Home Medical Detox?
In home detox has some significant advantages to detoxing in an inpatient facility. One of the most cited benefits is the privacy issue. Home detox providers offer discreet medical oversight of the detox process, and confidentiality is strictly adhered to.
Those who undergo detox at home versus an inpatient setting are more relaxed going into the process, and throughout the withdrawal phases. Generally, people prefer to be in the comfort of their own familiar surroundings, and feel less restricted to carry on with business affairs or just daily activities within the home during detox. Some clients prefer to have a loved one around as an additional layer of emotional support during detox, and being at home makes that easier to accomplish.
