Bath Salt Detox Programs & Treatment Centers
Detoxification at home often leads to relapse due to the severe adverse symptoms and exposure to triggers. Enrolling in an inpatient or an outpatient detox center can help prevent relapse by providing the necessary medical care and support to cope with the withdrawal symptoms.
Detox is only the first step toward recovery. Rehabilitation is necessary to ensure long-term sobriety. In general, a longer duration between the completion of detoxification and enrollment in a rehab center is associated with a higher rate of relapse. Various options exist for the treatment of addiction to synthetic cathinones, including enrollment in an inpatient or outpatient rehab, partial hospitalization programs. Treatment for bath salt addiction involves the use of various behavioral approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management programs and motivational enhancement therapy.
