Everyone will experience detox in a different way. The process can be extremely dangerous, which is why it is safer to detox with a medical professional present to help along the way. The best step towards recovery is through the safe detox program at Inland Detox. Our program offers accurate client assessment, stabilization, effective treatment planning and discharge planning. Some of the side effects of detoxification from drugs can include:
Detoxing from drugs can be a very uncomfortable process and it causes different reactions in a person depending on the type of drug they have been using. Some drugs may cause more discomfort physically and others, mentally.
For example, detoxing from meth can cause extreme psychological withdrawals, managing anxiety and intense cravings. Alcohol, on the other hand, causes dangerous physical withdrawals and can even lead to seizures in severe cases.
“Drugs that are most dangerous to detox from, and often require medication, include alcohol and benzodiazepines. The drugs that are considered the most uncomfortable to detox from are opioids, especially heroin.”
Each drug will cause different detox side effects. Below are some of the most common drugs that cause withdrawal and therefore will require medical detox – each side effect is treated by our medical staff.

It could take anywhere from hours to days, depending on the drug. Here are the major factors that determine the rate of detoxification:
Detoxing from a drug or alcohol at home can be extremely dangerous and cause serious health problems to occur. When someone detoxes, it causes withdrawal symptoms to happen and without the support of a medical professional it can become a problem or potential emergency quickly. It can also cause relapses to occur more often, because the person cannot handle the symptoms associated with their withdrawal and will resort to taking more substances.
