Medically-Assisted Detox

Medically-Assisted Detox is that important starting point for reclaiming your life. With extended Opioid, Heroin, Alcohol, Benzodiazepine or other drug use, dangerous toxins build up in the body. The detox process is structured to remove those toxins and separate you from your physiological drug or alcohol dependence. When conducted under knowledgeable professional care, detox is a safe, effective method for managing medically troubling withdrawal symptoms and minimizing any related client discomfort.

What to Expect

Detox programs blend a variety of proven medical therapies, each tailored to specific types of addiction. Expertise in a range of different medical specialties is a key advantage in detoxifying the client away from alcohol, cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs. This individualized approach ensures more consistent, longer-lasting results.

Every detox program should begin with a thorough assessment to determine the best compliment of treatments since detox alone is much less effective. A qualified addiction specialist should supervise the entire process of weaning the client off his or her substance of choice. No two treatment programs are alike; each is customized for optimum outcomes.

Research shows the effectiveness of certain addiction treatment medications during the detox process. Those become part of the program to help alleviate some of the detox’s physical symptoms and help curb cravings.

Adverse Symptoms

Detox is not an easy challenge, but it is a vital stage of the recovery process. When the substance is no longer available to you, some of the symptoms that you might experience include:

  • Sweating and flushing
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches or pains
  • Difficulty sleeping
