Outpatient Detox Q&A

What is detox?

Detox, or detoxification, is the process of eliminating toxic substances from the body. The term is most commonly used to refer to the early stages of recovering from drug or alcohol addiction.

As your body strives to rid itself of the toxic elements of drugs and alcohol, a range of disruptive and uncomfortable symptoms will arise. Everyone has a unique experience with detoxification, and many different factors can shape your unique path.


At MindMD Wellness, you’ll have a team of professionals to assist you through the detox process on an outpatient basis. Therapies are designed to align with the latest in recovery science and are delivered by caring and compassionate staff.


How does the body respond during detox?


Knowing what to expect may make moving forward in the detox process easier. Some of the potential symptoms of detoxification may include:


  • Body pain
  • Irritability
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Sweating
  • Shivering
  • Tremors
  • Anxiety
  • Changes in appetite


These are just some of the symptoms you might experience during detox. The type of drugs used, how recently you used drugs or alcohol, your body weight, and how long you’ve used the substance will all affect your detox experience.


What are outpatient detox therapies?


Medically supervised outpatient detox therapies are designed to give you the support you need to get through the detoxification process as quickly and comfortably as possible without you having to stay the night in a medical facility. The goal is to help you reach a state where your body is no longer under the influence of drugs or alcohol or fighting off the effects of detoxing from those substances.


Medications may also help you navigate the detoxification process. Once you transition into the next phase of recovery, MindMD Wellness offers a wide range of tools to help you nourish and support your body as it heals. Nutrition and wellness services, IV nutrition therapy, preventive medicine, and disease management are just some options of what’s available.


How do I know if outpatient detox is right for me?


Outpatient detox helps you build the skills you need to handle everyday problems and is centered around a schedule that works for you, allowing you to go to work or see to other commitments.


Outpatient treatment may be a good for you if:


  • You are unable to take a leave of absence from your job
  • You want to be close to loved ones
  • You can avoid drugs or alcohol where you live


In order for outpatient detox to be effective, it’s important to attend your sessions with the team at MindMD Wellness regularly and stay committed to a drug-free or sober lifestyle. Talk to your provider at MindMD Wellness to see if outpatient detox is right for you.
