For those suffering from withdrawals, you are likely experiencing symptoms ranging from disrupted sleep and anxiety to nausea and body aches. The severity of symptoms depends on a variety of factors such as age, degree and length of substance abuse and your specific biochemistry
Medical detoxification provides your body and mind with a “clean slate” on which to form new, healthy behaviors to replace these old, damaging ones.
A medically supervised detoxification program is essential to rid the body of accumulated substances before an individual enters inpatient treatment. By completing a medical detox as the first step of your treatment process, you will be preparing your mind and body to proceed with the intensive therapeutic techniques chosen for you as part of your customized treatment plan.
It is important to understand that when a person has been using substances regularly due to their addiction, the body will develop a physical dependence to their substance of choice. This dependence causes a chemical imbalance within the individual’s brain, which the body works to correct in order to restore balance. The chemical and physical changes which happen as a result of substance abuse means that if an addict attempts to stop using, especially “cold turkey” as most people try to do, not only is success doubtful but dangerous medical conditions may arise. Medically supervised detoxification mitigates these dangerous withdrawal symptoms in a safe, comfortable clinical environment. Detox prior to addiction treatment at Evolutions is considered an essential cornerstone to our treatment plan.
What is the Drug Detox Process?
For those who have developed a physical dependence to drugs as a result of their addiction, medical detox is almost always a necessity in order to successfully embark on a journey in recovery. There are certain classes of drugs for which medically assisted detox treatment may not be necessary. This is why it is best to let a team of medical professionals evaluate you to determine what level of care is necessary for your situation. The seasoned clinical staff at Evolutions are well equipped to determine whether or not a medically supervised detox will be necessary for you, or whether direct admission to inpatient residential treatment would be more beneficial for your recovery journey.
Those who have developed a physical dependence on alcohol have likely experienced some of the unpleasant symptoms associated with withdrawal. These withdrawal symptoms can range from uncomfortable to deadly depending on a host of factors such as body chemistry, amount of daily alcohol consumption, and duration of the addiction.
