What is the duration of a typical detox program at Philadelphia VA Medical Center (PVAMC) Addiction Recovery Unit?

The duration of drug and alcohol detox at a treatment center like Philadelphia VA Medical Center (PVAMC) Addiction Recovery Unit can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type and amount of substances used, the individual's overall health, metabolism, and whether they have undergone detox before. Common durations for drug and alcohol detox typically fall within the following general guidelines:

  1. Short-term detox (3-7 days): This is common for substances with shorter half-lives and less severe withdrawal symptoms. For example, detox from short-acting opioids like heroin or prescription painkillers may last around 3 to 7 days.

  2. Moderate-term detox (7-14 days): Some substances, such as benzodiazepines or alcohol, can have longer withdrawal timelines and more severe symptoms. Detox for these substances may take 7 to 14 days or longer in some cases.

  3. Long-term detox (14+ days): Detox from certain substances, such as heavy or long-term alcohol or benzodiazepine use, can extend beyond two weeks. In some cases, it may take several weeks or even months for an individual to stabilize and complete detox safely.

Detox is just the initial step in the recovery process. After detox, individuals often need additional treatment and support, such as therapy, counseling, and rehabilitation programs, to address the underlying issues and prevent relapse.

It's crucial for individuals seeking detox to do so under medical supervision or in a professional treatment facility such as Philadelphia VA Medical Center (PVAMC) Addiction Recovery Unit, as withdrawal symptoms can be severe and potentially life-threatening. Medical professionals can provide medications and support to manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure the safety and comfort of the individual undergoing detox. The duration of detox can be adjusted based on the individual's progress and response to treatment. Always consult with a healthcare provider or addiction specialist to determine the most appropriate detox plan for your specific situation.

What is the next step of addiction treatment after detox?

After successful detox at Philadelphia VA Medical Center (PVAMC) Addiction Recovery Unit or another detox center, individuals typically enter the next phases of addiction treatment and recovery.

The subsequent steps in the recovery process may include the following:
