Outpatient Detox Works, NIH states.

Traditional methods of treatment consist of Inpatient Detox for 30-90 days, outpatient meetings and counseling. Newer research demonstrates that it is possible to successfully detox from opiates on an outpatient basis safely with proper medical supervision and certain medications.

Per the National Institute on Drug Abuse, neuroscience is demonstrating promising results for alternative treatment modalities.

“Detoxification is typically associated with high relapse rates and return to opioid abuse,” Dr. Sigmon says. “However, some data also suggest that if you do it right, outpatient detoxification can be effective. The inclusion of naltrexone therapy is likely extremely important to help prevent resumption of illicit opioid use following detoxification.”
