Outpatient Detox

Are you seeking sobriety from alcohol, sedatives, opioids and marijuana? Our outpatient detox program may be a good fit for you. However, to participate in outpatient detox, it’s essential that we sit down together for an alcohol and drug assessment.

The drug and alcohol evaluation is an evidence-based tool, which enables us to be impartial in reaching our assessment conclusions. We will recommend the best program for long-term success. Whenever the evidence suggests outpatient detox is likely to be mild, we will recommend this as an alternative to inpatient detox.

Our Medical Services team collaborates with our Substance Abuse Services team throughout the detox program, providing the outpatient detoxification support you need.  This includes support for mild detoxification from alcohol, opioids, marijuana and sedatives such as benzodiazepine.

Our outpatient detox service is also available if we expect you to experience more moderate symptoms as long as we can withdraw the substance safely over an appropriate amount of time (ranging from days to weeks).  The primary requirement is that you have strong family support and are committed to stopping your use of whatever drugs and medications you have been using.

Is Outpatient Detox a Good fit?

If we don’t recommend outpatient detox, it is for a good reason. Alcohol withdrawal can cause seizures and other complicating medical issues. Opiate withdrawal can trigger vomiting and diarrhea, which could cause severe dehydration. Sedative withdrawal can initiate similar withdrawal symptoms as seen in opiate withdrawal, while also causing or worsening depression and anxiety.

However, other than in the context of emergent withdrawal, we’ve helped many people just like you manage the withdrawal process safely as outpatients.
