Massachusetts Drug & Alcohol Detox:
Your Step Forward

Drug and alcohol addiction can be crippling to your personal and professional life. There’s a stigma attached, with many believing they can summon the willpower to stop on their own. This is not only life-threatening, but it can set you up to fail on the road to recovery.

Both of these substances impact brain chemistry, causing a chemical imbalance. Ceasing the use of drugs and alcohol can have severe withdrawal symptoms, often with dangerous consequences.

In severe cases, the most effective drug addiction treatment requires intensive detox to rid the body of substances and help the patient transition toward a healthy and functional sober life. The symptoms of alcohol and drug withdrawal can be managed safely and effectively, ensuring patients are safe and secure as they take the next step forward.

What Is Drug &
Alcohol Detox?

Detoxification, or detox, is the process of clearing the body of drugs or alcohol that have been consumed. This is done to safely manage withdrawal symptoms when a patient stops taking drugs or alcohol. Everyone has a different experience, but the medications and physician monitoring during detox keep patients safe and comfortable as the substances clear their body.

Designed as an early step in drug and alcohol rehab, detox rids the body of substances and manages withdrawal to prevent dangerous complications. Detoxing under medical supervision is essential – it should NEVER be attempted at home.


How Long Does
Detox Take?

The duration of drug and alcohol detox varies according to the individual and may be impacted by the intensity, length of time, physical health, family history, and co-occurring mental health disorders. The patient’s response to detox may also affect the duration. Generally, the withdrawal symptoms can subside after a week. This time is less important, however, than managing the long-term changes to ensure that the patient isn’t at a significant risk of relapse.

Once the detox process is complete, the patient can then safely enter into the next phase of treatment with therapeutic modalities and supportive counseling, including individual and group therapy.

The Stages
of Detox

When entering drug or alcohol detox, a patient undergoes several phases of treatment. Patients are first evaluated by a clinical care team with mental and physical health assessments to determine the nature of the addiction and develop a tailored treatment plan.

Blood tests record the levels of drugs and/or alcohol in the system, allowing physicians to establish medication requirements. The patient’s mental state is also evaluated, along with the history of use and co-occurring disorders that must be addressed.

Once the evaluation is complete, physicians will stabilize the patient as necessary and prepare them for the processes involved in drug addiction treatment. This may include explaining the procedures involved and the side effects they may experience on their journey to recovery and sobriety.

Possible Side Effects
of Detox

While every patient’s recovery experience may be different, the first few days of drug or alcohol withdrawal can be challenging. The body has to adjust to the changes involved in clearing toxins from the system.

Anxiety and depression

Nausea and stomach pain, including vomiting and diarrhea

Flu-like symptoms, fever, body aches, running nose




Heart Palpitations


The Massachusetts detox specialists at Psyclarity Clinical Stabilization Services monitor heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, respiration, and fluid levels to counteract possible health risks. If necessary, medications and dosages can be adjusted to address symptoms.
