What Are the Benefits of Inpatient Detox?

If you or someone close to you is struggling with addiction, it can be difficult to get help if you don’t know what you need, what a detox inpatient center is, or the difference between inpatient treatment vs. detox. 

With Liberty House Recovery Center, we offer inpatient detox to help you through your withdrawal symptoms and ongoing care to help you with the rest.

Liberty House Recovery Center is a luxury detox center in Michigan. Contact us today to learn more about our addiction therapy options.

What is Inpatient Detox?

Inpatient detox is where you reside at a facility for detox treatment and subsequent inpatient recovery programs. 

But what is inpatient detox supposed to do?

Detox is intended to help you reach a place where you aren’t using any substances or dealing with residual toxins in your system. Detox is also intended to help relieve immediate withdrawal symptoms and treat any medical conditions that arise as a result of the process. 

After detox, the goal is for you to transition into the remainder of your inpatient care, where you can receive therapy and medication to help you remain sober and live a fulfilling, happy life. 

What is Inpatient Detox Supposed to Treat?

Inpatient detox is supposed to treat the withdrawal from addictive substances such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opioids
  • Hallucinogens
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription medications

Why Use a Detox Inpatient Center

With inpatient detox, you can safely detox from severe addictions without many of the risks of detoxing alone. 

Constant Care

The most significant benefit of using inpatient detox is constant care. When you reside at the treatment facility, you have regular medical supervision at all hours. When you start your treatment, they can help allay your fears by explaining what symptoms are most likely given your circumstances. As you move through your treatment, they can check your vitals and provide medication to help reduce the severity of your symptoms. 

Treatment for Complications

Medical staff is on hand for any serious complications you might face. They can offer treatment for unexpected symptoms or manage things like seizures. 

Medication Assisted Treatment

For severe addictions to things like alcohol or opioids, you might need FDA-approved medication to help wean yourself from the drugs without any serious health risks or to avoid cravings during the remainder of your treatment. A registered detox inpatient center like Liberty House Recovery Center can only administer these. 

New Environment

Inpatient detox removes you from your current environment and places you in a new facility, away from any access to drugs or alcohol. This takes you away from places, friends, or family who are triggers and alleviates the risk of relapse within the first several days of treatment. 

Inpatient Treatment vs. Detox: What is the Timeframe?

At a detox inpatient center, you check into a facility where you start your initial detox anywhere between a couple of days and a week. The length depends on things like:

  • What substances you have used
  • How many you are addicted to
  • How much you use
  • How often you use
  • Your physical and mental health

However, the timeline for ongoing inpatient treatment can range between thirty and ninety days, depending on your needs. The longer you remain in treatment, the better your outcomes. 

The average detox timeline is six days, ranging from three to fourteen, depending on the substances and their withdrawal symptoms. 

Inpatient Treatment vs. Detox: What to Expect

With inpatient detox at the same facility, you can expect to move seamlessly from your detox process to your inpatient process. If you opt for detox elsewhere, then when that is over, you move to your inpatient treatment center for the remainder of your residential care. 


You can expect an initial assessment at the detox inpatient center. This assessment will take between one and two hours on average. Our staff will conduct a quick physical and take your mental health and physical histories during the assessment. 

You must share honest answers with us because this information is critical in preparing for your detox. 


The detox begins with admitting you to our facility and setting you up in your room. During the next several days, as your symptoms intensify and then release, we will be there for you. Think of it like a hospital, where you will remain in bed under constant supervision. 

The detox process involves uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, but the rest of the inpatient treatment involves ongoing individual and group therapy. 

Our luxury drug and alcohol rehab combines traditional, modern, and holistic therapies to help you overcome withdrawal symptoms during the first few days of your detox and throughout your inpatient stay. By tailoring our approach to each client, you get a personalized detox plan that considers the withdrawal symptoms you are most likely to experience, your physical health, and how long you have struggled with addiction. 

Innovative treatments throughout the rest of your inpatient program include things like sauna therapy, nutritious meals, and IV vitamin therapy to keep your mind and body as healthy as possible.
