A 10 day to 28 day outpatient program is provided as an alternative to inpatient and self detox methods. The overall condition of the patient must first be determined by a specialist, in order to select the most suitable method of detoxification. TCI outpatient detoxification begins by replenishing the vitamins and minerals in the patient’s system lost during alcohol consumption. Patients in this program are provided with the medication necessary to relax the body, and overcome basic withdrawal symptoms.
The patient will be receive regular check ups throughout this process to ensure the effectiveness of the medication. Afterwards, they may be discharged into the care of a friend or family member. However, it’s vitally important that they return for further monitoring over the next couple of days, in order to prevent relapse and ensure a successful recovery.
