How Medically-Supported Detox Aids Recovery
Why do we recommend that all of our patients go through detox with medical support? Detox can be a challenging time. Addiction causes changes in the brain as well as physical dependence. When the body is reliant on a substance to function, suddenly quitting it can lead to withdrawal symptoms. While the symptoms can vary depending on the substance the individual uses, as well as the severity of their addiction, common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Increased heart rate or blood pressure
- Anxiety, irritability, or mood swings
- Chills or sweating
- Insomnia or loss of appetite
- Hallucinations or delusions
For many, these withdrawal symptoms are painful enough to lead them to use again simply to alleviate their discomfort. However, in our substance abuse treatment center, we can prescribe medication and provide support to ease withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings. Detox from certain substances, such as alcohol, can even be dangerous. Medical support can help keep our patients safe.
Once through the initial period of detox, our guests can begin a treatment program involving intensive individual therapy. While cravings are common and relapse can still happen, getting through detox successfully can be a source of motivation for many in recovery.
