The average length of time spent in detox is approximately seven days. During this time, the person will be monitored medically and any psychiatric or psychological issues will be assessed.
After the person is medically stable, they are generally referred to residential treatment to complete the treatment plan designed in detox. By the time most people enter treatment for prescription medication addiction, they have created quite a bit of emotional damage to themselves and loved ones. It takes time to recover from shame, grief, guilt, and rebuild a level of trust amongst the family. Recovery in a supportive therapeutic environment eliminates many of the outside distractions and allows a person to focus on issues relating to their recovery. The length of stay is approximately twenty days and may be followed by outpatient therapy.
