Inpatient detoxification is recommended when an individual is withdrawing from drugs or alcohol due to the fact that there may be risks involved. In an inpatient detoxification setting in Riggins clients can be closely observed for symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal which may bring about health complications or even death in more serious cases. Someone suffering with alcoholism for example may need to be watched closely and likely administered certain prescription drugs that would prevent seizures and delirium tremens. Benzodiazepine withdrawal is another type of drug that could cause very similar withdrawal effects, and nurses and doctors in the inpatient detox facility will ensure their safety.
There is not an exact process for each individual in detox, because of the unique differences that each person exhibits when arriving to the detoxification facility. A person who is otherwise physically and mentally healthy may undergo detox for 3 or 4 days and be released without much intervention, while another patient may need intensive supervision and intervention for 7 to 10 days or more. Medical safety is of the highest concern, and also a transition to treatment for patients who should to go to an actual substance abuse treatment facility once detoxification is complete. Most detoxification facilities work with drug rehabilitation facilities to make this transition possible, since detoxification is only the first step in an overall rehabilitation plan for people in recovery.
