Hi fosterag, As long as your relative is under the care of professionals in a treatment facility, he should do well rather quickly. They are prepared for all types of addictions, any emergencies that may come up, you really can't do better than in-patient care. I'm sure they will want him to do follow up counseling once he is released from the facility. There's a possibility of PAWS (post acute withdrawal syndrome) that may last for quite a while. However, the professionals will be able to assess this and help him learn techniques to deal with PAWS. Continue to be supportive and hopefully he will learn to adjust quickly to a life free of chemicals. Addiction can be a life long battle for many people. I hope and pray that your relative recovers quickly.
he is probably dealt with this in a good way by going inpatient, as Christ said they are prepared for about anything that can happen and help him to come through it and set goals for his recovery to continue long after discharge, they have a vast amount of experience they have been there done that and this as a certain Dr. says isn't their first rodeo, he will (as I too will pray) do very well, he needs every bit of encouragement that he can get, it will make all the difference in the world keep on keeping on for you and to help him help himself
