When you arrive at your local Kolmac center, a detoxification nurse and a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioners will work with you to help you manage withdrawal symptoms.
About Outpatient Detox / Ambulatory Detox.
According to a 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 21 million Americans struggled with a dependence on drugs and/or alcohol last year, but less than 2.5 million received treatment at a specialty facility. The report also points out that a full quarter of those that needed treatment did not receive it because they lacked health insurance. That is a huge problem for anyone facing addiction and/or substance abuse problems.
The Cost of Ambulatory Detox.
The ambulatory detoxification services will consist of a medically managed, monitored, and structured detoxification service provided on an outpatient, voluntary basis and delivered by a physician or other service personnel acting under the supervision of a physician. We treat withdrawal symptoms for All Substances. Some treatments include:
Family Support and Contact in Inpatient Rehab.
These type of medications specifically treat individuals displaying symptoms of elevated heart rate and high blood pressure during detox. They are commonly used alongside benzodiazepines. Clonidine and propranolol are common forms of this medication used for outpatient detox.
