Ambulatory Detox FAQ

What Is Ambulatory Detox?

Ambulatory detox is another outpatient program. It is meant for those who need to detox from drugs or alcohol. Detox is the body’s process of ridding itself of a toxic substance. This is usually followed by withdrawal which can have painful or life-threatening symptoms.

It has many of the benefits of inpatient care. It has these benefits but is more cost-effective and much less restrictive. It is just the first step in a recovery program to help battle substance abuse.

It is available 24/7 around the clock. Patients will be able to come in as needed to receive treatment and help. Of course, there will be a schedule so that people stick to it. But it isn’t restrictive because people can go home and go to work. They don’t have to change anything about their day to day life except for their drug use.
