Inpatient detoxification is recommended when a person is withdrawing from drugs or alcohol because there may be risks involved. In an inpatient detoxification setting in Lava Hot Springs patients are closely monitored for withdrawal symptoms that could cause health complications or even death in more serious instances. a person with alcoholism for example may need to be closely monitored and likely administered certain prescription drugs which would prevent seizures and delirium tremens. Prescription benzodiazepine withdrawal is another type of drug that could cause very similar symptoms, and medical professionals in the inpatient detoxification facility would ensure their safety.
There is not an exact practice for each patient in detox, because of the unique differences that each person presents when entering detox. An individual who is otherwise in good health may be in detox for 4 or 5 days and be released without much intervention, while another person may require intensive supervision and intervention for a couple weeks. Safety is of the greatest concern, as well as a transition to treatment for clients who should to take part in an actual substance abuse rehab facility once detox is finished. Many detoxification facilities work with drug treatment facilities to make this transition possible, due to the fact that detoxification is only the first step in an overall recovery plan for people in recovery.
