Home detox solutions are available at some of the outpatient or residential drug treatment centers throughout the state of Virginia. This normally presents itself in the form of home detox kits and informational support. Some addicts will choose a home detox because not every drug detox program is available for an addict, and some private centers may cost too much for an addict or their family.

Will home detox work for elderly adults?

This will depend upon if there are any pre-existing health conditions and what types of drugs or alcohol the addict is withdrawing from. Usually, the best-case situation is for elderly adults are to attend an inpatient detox program. There will typically be better options to help them through the detox, and assisting them with any difficult withdrawals.
