We will create a personalized detox plan for you
Our patients must undergo a medically assisted withdrawal period. This is where all toxic chemicals from alcohol and drugs contain will be rid from the body safely. Consequently, we offer a medically assisted withdrawal period, other known as detoxification. During the time withdrawal symptoms are present, the first step taken in the detox process would be easing the withdrawal symptoms, helping the recovering individual become as comfortable as possible. We create a personalized detoxification plan to suit each client’s particular situation. Each recovering addict’s detoxification plan will differ depending upon the amount or type of the substance abused. We find this important because an individual withdrawing from alcohol will not have the same symptoms as an individual withdrawing from opiates. There are three typical stages that clients can expect after they decide to enter detox. Most importantly, each and every client is evaluated, a step that discovers which substance, or substances, and in what amounts, are present within the client’s bloodstream. Some clients are addicted to a couple of substances - frequently alongside alcohol - which is able to greatly affect the way detox is carried out. After the client is assessed, we begin the process of detoxifying the patient’s body from drugs. Detox severs the physical addiction to harmful substances, but it doesn’t rehabilitate the client, so we encourage our clients to go directly into a custom-designed rehab treatment program in order to support a long-lasting recovery.
Many individuals who are affected by drug and alcohol addiction can also suffer from co-occurring psychological disorders, which complicate the treatment process if not accurately diagnosed and correctly addressed in treatment. These disorders may include mood disorders, intrusive thoughts, anxiety disorders, hopelessness, schizophrenia, a lack of motivation or a fear of public situations and some personality disorders. These conditions affect the way you feel, behave, and interact with others, and how you perceive the world. Treatment is important because, with no clear understanding about their problem, many addicts find themselves in familiar scenarios that trigger their drug abuse. Relapse commonly occurs when detox is used alone, and when addicts find themselves in the usual situations and places where their drug and alcohol use was heaviest. In a new setting, far from the people and places that the drug user associates with drug and alcohol use, it is easier to avoid the triggers of addictive behavior. Relapse is much more common when addicts participate only in detox, so we urge our clients to continue right into a 28-day, 60-day, or 90-day rehab programs to start drug or alcohol rehab. Detox is bolstered in rehab, where addicts take part in group and individual counseling, the twelve-step community, and engaging diversions and physical activity. Throughout rehabilitation, clients reside in gorgeous, comfortable living facilities that combine all of the advantages of inpatient living amenities with the affordability of outpatient living accommodations. Additionally, clients stay busy with educational programs created to assist them in reaching their recovery and life goals. For many people, detox is a crucial first step towards recovering from substance abuse, but it is ONLY a first step, and isn’t meant to replace a rehabilitation program.

For many addicts, detox is the most important first step towards recovering from addiction, however it’s ONLY a first step, and doesn’t take the place of a rehabilitation program.
