Detox: What to Expect

Detox: What to Expect

One of the major roadblocks for individuals contemplating rehab is undergoing the detox experience. It can scare a lot of people away due to the stigma and rumors surrounding it. It can be seen as painful, debilitating, and seemingly impossible. If you suffer withdrawal symptoms you experience when it’s been too long since your last dose, you may wonder how you can do a detox. Luckily, we are here to tell you that detox can be a comfortable experience. Keep reading to learn more about what to expect from detox and how to comfortably (and safely) experience it in our clinic.


Depending on the length and severity of your addiction, as well as what type of substance you are addicted to, timing can vary. However, a general timeline for detox is:

  • Opioids and Heroin: 7-10 days
  • Alcohol: 4-7 days
  • Benzodiazepines: 1-4 days

Since timing can be so varied due to various factors, it is important you receive individualized care when it comes to detox. At Luxe Treatment Center, your detox plan will include the following:

  • Customized plan for your individual situation
  • Oversight from qualified addiction professionals
  • Skilled medical staff, always available
  • Good, balanced nutrition to promote optimum general health
  • Beautiful, relaxed setting to ensure a feeling of serenity


One of the best ways to make you as comfortable as possible during the detox process is to take medication to help make you feel better. Detox can present many symptoms, such as nausea, shakes, high blood pressure, intense cravings, and more. Our professional team is Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)-certified, allowing us to prescribe certain medications, in combination with our recommended therapies and counseling, for your treatment. All medications that we prescribe are FDA approved for the uses specified.


Detoxing alone can be dangerous, as well as extremely uncomfortable. To ensure your total comfort and safety, we provide around-the-clock support and care from addiction and detox professionals. Our caring nurses, doctors, and other clinicians are on standby to help whenever you may need it. We welcome the chance to make your detox period stable and hassle-free so that you can begin your treatment and stay in the best possible state of mind. Our support system carries through your entire treatment stay, and even beyond.
