Medically Monitored, Inpatient Drug Detox and Alcohol Rehab

What is inpatient medically monitored detox?

Detox begins the moment a person stops using drugs or alcohol and ends when physically stable from the process. While physical detox may only last a few days or a week, the emotional and mental aspects of recovery may take much longer. Mirmont Treatment Center, a drug and alcohol treatment center just outside of Philadelphia, is a medically monitored, inpatient drug detox and alcohol rehab center that helps patients through detox—with minimal side effects and a program specifically tailored to individual patterns of substance use. 

Drug and alcohol detox with fewer withdrawal symptoms

As the inpatient drug detox and alcohol rehab center journey begins, some people have concerns about pain or suffering during detox. Depending on the substance(s) used, side effects from detox may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Appetite changes
  • Depression
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea
  • Sweating

At Mirmont, our inpatient drug and alcohol detox treatment is gradual, which helps significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms. Under our careful watch, medication and holistic pain management techniques are used to help control symptoms. We also take a holistic approach to drug and alcohol recovery, applying proven therapies such as acupuncture for detox, mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), reiki (energy healing), and healing touch—all designed to help people recovering from drugs or alcohol develop comfort in simply “being with self.”

The detox process varies in length, depending on many medical and clinical factors. We stay with our patients throughout the process, offering physical and emotional support to help them get through this critical time.

Once detox is complete each patient is transitioned to a rehab level of care before outpatient treatment. We offer inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation and outpatient addiction treatment options depending on individual needs. No matter which level of care patients are transitioned to, they'll receive the very best treatment and we'll set them up for success on the road to sobriety.
