Treatments - Detoxification

A vital step to recovery.

 

Alcohol and drug addiction are chronic diseases that can creep up on individuals over several years or ambush them after just a few short months of heavy drinking. Regardless, most addicts require a complete cessation of drug or alcohol intake to achieve sobriety and live a life unfettered by addiction.

Detoxification is one of the initial steps necessary to launch a patient into the long process of recovery.

 

What is Detox?

Usually referred to as detox, detoxification is the medical process used to effectively and safely reset the body as alcohol, drugs, and toxins are removed from the system. Sometimes medication is also used to ease withdrawal symptoms.

What should I expect?

 

Withdrawal can lead to deadly delirium tremens (DTs) and must be medically monitored. You may receive substitution medications, such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates, which help ease withdrawal symptoms by simulating the effects of alcohol until your body recovers. Vitamins, especially B1, may also be administered to offset the vitamin deficiencies accrued throughout your addiction.

Ranging from mild to severe, possible withdrawal symptoms you might experience include:

  • Sweats
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Convulsions and seizures
