The Drug and Alcohol Detox Timeline

The drug and alcohol detox timeline can vary greatly depending on many factors. This includes the severity of the addiction, how long the individual has been using the substance and what kind of substances were used. Any history of other medical conditions should also be taken into consideration. 

At our detox center in Ohio, treatment generally lasts for about a week. Depending on the needs of the patient and their mental and physical well-being, treatment duration can vary.

First 12 hours

The first 12 hours of detox are some of the most crucial. Patients will start to experience mild withdrawal symptoms such as sweating and nausea, irritability and at times, mild tremors. The first signs of symptoms can occur as soon as six hours after the initial detox. 

1-3 days

During this phase, withdrawal symptoms will begin to increase with intensity. Physical symptoms include increased blood pressure and rapid heart rate. Abnormal breathing patterns can also trigger more emotional stressors.

1 week

Acute symptoms typically lessen on day 4 and continue to diminish over the next few days. Clients with severe addictions may need a longer detox of up to 10 days. 


Before discharging from our Ohio detox center, medical professionals will assess the patient’s emotional and physical state of health. Once the patient has completed initial detox, residential inpatient treatment services will be the next level of care. During this vulnerable stage, patients will begin undertaking intense therapeutic treatment methods. This will help address any psychological health conditions that often occur alongside addiction. 

Effective Drug and Alcohol Detox Methods

Detoxing from drugs, alcohol and other mind-altering substances can be very difficult. To ensure the safety of the patient, it should be done under the guidance of an experienced rehab program. In addition to traditional methods of substance withdrawal, patients may require other techniques and approaches.

This can include the usage of approved medications to help with the discomforts of detox. Drug tapering is another method to help the body and mind slowly adjust to life without dependence of substances. 


Medication assisted treatment (MAT). Oftentimes patients who are detoxing from addictive substances experience both physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can cover anything from loss of sleep, physical shaking and tremors, deep feelings of depression and more.

Excessive drug use can alter brain functions as well as other organ functions. In order to maintain the safety of our patients, we use approved medications to combat the pain and discomfort during the detox process. 

Drug Tapering

Drug tapering is a form of substance detox. Drug tapering consists of gradually removing the addictive substance through a slow decrease in dosage. This is done until the body is completely free of the substance. Our medical rehab professionals carefully monitor patients during this process.

Intake process at our Detox Center in Cincinnati, Ohio

Detox is the first step in the journey to long-term recovery. The detox process is generally categorized into three major phases. Our experienced clinical team will be there to guide each patient through every step of the process. 

Our detox center in Cincinnati, Ohio believes in creating custom plans to fit the needs of each of our patients. There is no one size fits all when it comes to substance abuse treatment.


Upon entrance into our alcohol and drug detox facilities in Ohio, a full physical and psychological assessment of the patient is made. The biopsychosocial assessment is performed by medical physicians and clinical psychiatrists. Factors such as current physical and mental health condition, history of drug usage and family history of drug and mental health issues are taken into consideration. After the BPS assessment, together with the patient, the rehab medical care team creates an individualized comprehensive treatment plan. 


Depending on each patient’s treatment care plan, medication may be recommended to help with initial detox.  Medications used during detox and throughout the rehab process are approved by our medical physician. These medications are meant to effectively and successfully assist in drug and alcohol withdrawal management. Medication can also help target any co-occurring mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety and trauma.


Stabilization happens once a patient’s severe symptoms of withdrawal have subsided. Our team will continue to monitor until the client is ready for the next phase of rehab. Drug and alcohol detox is only the beginning of a lifelong process in recovery. Patients are still very sensitive during this phase of treatment. 

Inpatient treatment is highly recommended after detox to address deeper aspects of the addiction. In order to fully recover, a well-rounded treatment plan must be implemented. This plan should include detox, group support and different therapies. A comprehensive treatment plan helps patients combat cravings, relapses and negative thoughts and behaviors that hinder the success of long-term sobriety.
