What is Outpatient Detox?The path to wellness typically involves a healthy start, which is why many clients go through a detox period when beginning their journey to whole-body recovery. Detox is for individuals who are actively addicted to substances. During the detox process, the body physically withdraws from the substance usage. Individuals experience a range of symptoms during the first few days of detox, which include (but are not limited to) nausea, vomiting, headaches, disrupted sleep, irritability, upset stomach, and anxiety. While withdrawal symptoms can last for several weeks, the most intense symptoms typically only last for a few days. Outpatient detox enables clients to go through the intense early stages of the detox process within the comfort of their home environment. At CRC, our licensed, experienced team provides expert care to each client as they detox. Medical assessment is provided, as well as ongoing management of the withdrawal symptoms.
IV Detox with CRCTo help individuals safely detox, our IV Detox treatment ensures individuals stay hydrated during the detox process and replenishes their nutrient levels. This ultimately minimizes the intensity of withdrawal symptoms.
Drug Detox Chicago: What Happens During Detox?When substances are consumed, there are specific toxins that are also consumed that have a negative impact on our overall health and inhibit our body’s ability to function. During detox, the body is getting these toxins out of the system. As a client, when you utilize the outpatient detox services with CRC, our licensed medical staff arrive at your home to help you stay comfortable and safe during the physical withdrawal of symptoms. This includes continuously monitoring your vitals and also providing you with IV therapy so that your body can receive the essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy during the detox.

Outpatient Detox Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between inpatient and outpatient detox?
Inpatient detox takes place within a facility, with typically limited privacy. Outpatient detox enables individuals to safely and comfortably detox within their home, while still being under the care of medical staff.
How long does detox last?
The amount of time it takes for the human body to detox from alcohol and/or drugs will vary from person to person. It will also depend on the type of drug used and the frequency. It’s common for the physical withdrawal symptoms of detox to last for a few days to several weeks.
The most intense symptoms typically only last a few days (such as nausea and vomiting). Following the first few days of detox, many individuals will experience cravings for their drug or alcohol that last several weeks. Our licensed medical team at CRC helps each client cope during this period by offering several options for modern therapies to ease their system.
