Detox removes accumulated substances by purging them from the body, however, this process shouldn't be confused with drug and/or alcohol treatment. Detox isn't going to treat substance dependency by itself. The detox process might be frightening for some people who have tried the 'cold turkey' method, or for people who may have been abusing for years, but it really doesn't have to be a scary process. Detox Rehabilitation Hampton takes every safety measures to ensure that detox is reliable and appropriate for each and every client.
Rehabilitation Centers VA is a program that offers detox with the understanding that different types of substances are result in a variety of withdrawal symptoms. It is vital to gradually stop taking depressants (such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol) since unattended withdrawal symptoms can include: hallucinations, tremors, seizures, higher blood pressure, increased heart rate, increased internal temperature, comas or even death.
Stimulants (for example, amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine) don't regularly require much more than emotional support from family, loved ones, and therapists. However, occasionally an addict may develop stimulant psychosis, and might need medicine to prevent: suicidal emotions, suicide attempts, paranoia, psychosis, severe anhedonia (lack of any overall enjoyment in any activities) or nearly uncontrollable cravings. With proper detox procedures, many of these effects can be attended to.
Treatment for Drug Abuse and Addiction
Opioids (for example, heroin, morphine, codeine, and OxyContin) will have very minor to very dangerous withdrawal symptoms, such as: runny nose, sweating, anxiety, depression, quickening pulse, quickened breathing, bone sensitivity, muscle sensitivity, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, coma or even death. With adequate detox services, the effects of the withdrawal symptoms can be mitigated in order to provide a higher quality of life once the therapeutic process begins.
Social detoxification is far better fitted to people whose drug use will only lead to mild withdrawal symptoms that result from drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, infrequent opioid use and occasional alcohol use. This kind of detox normally doesn't require medications, but patients are still supervised by nurses and counselors who oversee the clients' health and condition carefully, and also help the client during cravings. Social detoxification is a "social" experience; meaning clients are not quarantined in institution-like rooms, but are encouraged to live and interact together as they detox. In this type of detox, clients are prepared to live together and work along with other people in recovery while they are in a rehab program.
The Benefits of medically supervised withdrawal
There are a few detox medications that, if prescribed by a qualified health care professional, can ease some of the nastier withdrawal symptoms that those drugs cause. People who use drugs along with alcohol, or who have been affected by serious alcoholism, are also strongly advised to undergo medically supervised withdrawal. Usually, medically supervised withdrawal centers utilize medicines to avoid health complications resulting from withdrawal, like hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and psychological issues addicts can experience when trying to stop 'cold turkey'. In addition, anybody who has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has life-threatening illness, or has been diagnosed with particular mental illnesses requires medically supervised withdrawal to be able to correctly wean themselves from drugs and alcohol.
