DETOXIFICATION RIDS THE BODY OF HARMFUL DRUGS WHILE HELPING TO MANAGE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS, SO YOU CAN MAKE A FRESH START.
The desire to control your addiction is the first step in a long journey toward sobriety. With the help of our clinical staff, our clients can pass through the withdrawal process with as little discomfort as possible while under medical supervision. This ensures addicts cannot get hold of drugs and also ensures the recovery is as safe as possible.
Drug detox, or detoxification should be the first step in a comprehensive rehabilitation plan. Choosing a state licensed and professionally administered detox can prevent fatal or disagreeable consequences resulting from rapid cessation of drugs or alcohol and can help the patient in becoming abstinent from drugs.
The goal of any detox program after long-term drug or alcohol addiction is stabilization, then minimizing the unpleasant symptoms associated with detoxification. According to the NIDA, The National Institute on Drug Abuse, after stabilization the focus of detox then becomes the support and monitoring of the various processes the body goes through as it rids itself of the drugs and alcohol, and to the management of the often very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that come as a result.
It is very important to know that detox is only the beginning. It is only the first step in a successful treatment plan. Addiction is both physical and psychological. A comprehensive treatment plan will include psychotherapy to address the issues of continued cravings, and the changes often made in the brain as a result of long term substance abuse. While detox alone will help the patient to stop abusing drugs and alcohol in the short term, without follow-up care and therapy, the risk of relapse increases greatly.
