What is a Medical Detox?
A medical detox consists of inpatient treatment with 24-hour medical supervision. During this time, your comfort and safety are closely attended to by clinical staff. Medications to control and alleviate withdrawal symptoms are used to help keep patients comfortable.

Rest assured that a nurse is always close by, should you need assistance. More than anything, this time is about stabilizing your condition and getting much needed rest. It is also a way to protect you from serious withdrawal side effects like seizure. A medical detox is always the safest way to begin treatment.
The Plum Creek Ranch Detox
One more significant advantage we offer is that our medical detox is onsite at the same location as our residential treatment facility.This means you won’t have to transfer from one facility to another.
The Plum Creek Ranch Detox is a carefully integrated part of our comprehensive addiction treatment program and all of the treatment occurs right here. That also means you can begin participating in therapy and counseling as soon as you’re ready, even if you’re still in detox.
How Long is a Medical Detox?
A standard medical detox typically runs anywhere from 4 to 7 days, depending on what you are detoxing from, how much you were using and for how long. Age and physical health can be factors as well.
Certain medications can require a longer than usual medical detox. These include benzodiazepines like Xanax and Klonopin and methadone. Benzos often require a slower taper for safety and the long half-life of methadone can make detox longer.
The scope of Medication-Assisted Treatment or MAT varies. It can be as simple as a medical detox followed by some antidepressant or non-narcotic anxiety medications for an extended period past detox.
Another useful aspect of MAT is in controlling cravings and mitigating lingering withdrawal symptoms and Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. Medications like buprenorphine (Suboxone), Disulfiram or Acamprosate are also used.
