Medically Supervised Detox Facilities For Drugs, Meds Or Alcoholism In South Carolina

Currently in the state of South Carolina are some medical detox centers and services for addicts who cannot  safely stop using their current drug of choice.

Did you know this about medical detox?

A medical detox is not your typical detox for addicts; they typically help addicts, who take high dosages of opiates, extreme alcoholics, and those on large dosages of prescription medications, because of the strong withdrawal effects..

How rapidly will medical detox work?

The medical detox process will not necessarily happen quickly, and in most cases can take upwards of two weeks. If a patient is tapering down from a large dosage of methadone, the detox process may take longer to help them through the last part of the tapering schedule. It is important to understand that this process should not be rushed, and this is because if the patient cannot get through the withdrawals, they may be more likely to return to drugs.
