Detoxing from substance abuse is unique for every person who forms an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Some patients will require 24-hour supervision, while others will have mild withdrawal symptoms and can complete their detox program through ambulatory detox. What is ambulatory detox? An ambulatory detox program is an outpatient medication-assisted treatment program that will help ease your withdrawal symptoms and curb your cravings.
At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we provide an ambulatory detox program for patients in good physical and mental health. Medical professionals will administer FDA-approved drugs at a treatment facility, office, or sober home environment. They will also monitor your progress and make any updates as you progress. To learn more about our ambulatory detox program, call 833.448.0127 today to find out if you qualify for ambulatory detox.
What Is Ambulatory Detox?
Many busy professionals and students use drugs or alcohol to deal with the stress of high-pressure jobs or a busy college schedule. They appear to maintain their use and don’t form an addiction. When, in reality, they are forming an addiction without even knowing it. Over time, their addiction grows to the point where it interferes with work or school.
An ambulatory detox program is beneficial to students and professionals who:
- Have a busy schedule and cannot take time off for a residential treatment program
- Are unable to meet the financial costs of residential treatment
- Do not have a stable and sober home environment
Do You Need Ambulatory Detox?
If you are not sure if you need a detox program, think about your substance abuse and answer the following questions:
- Are you using more to feel the same effects?
- Do you constantly think about drugs or alcohol?
- Are you missing work or school because of your substance abuse?
- Are you lying about your substance abuse to your friends and family?
If you have answered yes to more than one of these questions, an ambulatory detox program can help you before your addiction completely takes over your life.
At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we understand that not everyone needs a residential detox program to help with addiction. That is why we provide detoxing through our telehealth remote program and medication-assisted treatment for patients who qualify for an ambulatory detox program.
Ambulatory Detox Qualifications
Part of the conditions for ambulatory detox is attending an outpatient treatment program through a qualified addiction treatment facility. Patients will go through individual and group therapy programs to help them understand addiction and how it affects them mentally and physically. Plus, it will teach them healthy coping skills to maintain their busy schedules without drugs or alcohol.
To qualify for an ambulatory detox program, you must commit to your sobriety and not use this as a temporary fix. Along with attending addiction therapy for a set period of time, patients must:
- Be in good physical health
- Have no history of drug or alcohol abuse
- Have a supportive and sober home environment
- Receive support from friends or family members
