Detox long?

Unread postby usmale » Thu May 14, 2009 10:57 pm

How long does it take for a person to detox from alcohol if they check into a hospital so they can then join an outpatient rehab program?

Thanks to all for any answers!

Detox times vary by the individuals needs. typically you will be on a detox about three days for alcohol. Can I suggest to you to try an inpatient rehab to get some structure and learn a little about your disease. It is not just about putting down the drink, it is also about changing old behaviors as well as dealing with any issues you may have. I hope you get the help you need.
