What is the best dextromethorphan detox?

Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant with a potential to cause addiction. If you abuse dextromethorphan, you may find that you crave the drug and cannot function well without it. Overcoming an addiction to dextromethorphan can be difficult, but it isn't impossible. With professional assistance, you can address the underlying cause of your addiction, learn to deal with your cravings and improve your quality of life. However, before you can begin a dextromethorphan rehab program, you must first undergo dextromethorphan detox.

What is Dextromethorphan Detox?

Dextromethorphan detox is a process designed to help you eliminate all remnants of dextromethorphan from your body so that you can begin the treatment process. During dextromethorphan detox, you may experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings for the drug. Because this process can be so challenging, many patients elect to undergo medically-supervised dextromethorphan detox in a facility that specializes in helping patients through this process.

Finding a Detox Center

Detoxification centers are available all around the country, and they are all different. As you compare different detox centers, consider each of the following factors.

1. The facility's location.

A facility's location not only determines how far you will need to travel in order to begin your program, but it also determines whether your family and friends will be able to visit easily.

2. The program's cost.

Different detox programs may charge different fees for the same services. Likewise, a given facility may or may not accept insurance payments. Before you begin a program, make sure you can afford to pay your share of the bill.

3. The program's services.

Before you choose a detox program, take some time to learn about the services available from each of the programs you are considering. For example, while some treatment programs may offer medication to help with withdrawal symptoms, others may not.

4. The program's reputation.

A program's reputation can tell you a lot about how well it works and whether or not patients are generally satisfied. To learn about the reputations of different programs you are considering, research each program online. Look for rehab reviews written by patients who have completed each dextromethorphan detox program. It also helps to read reviews written by impartial experts in the field of addiction recovery.

5. Coordination with addiction treatment programs.

After completing dextromethorphan detox, you will need to enter an addiction treatment program. Look for a detox facility that offers an addiction treatment program in the same location or can help you enter an addiction treatment program immediately after undergoing dextromethorphan detox.
