We are ready to help on your first step to clean and sober
Our treatment center is a clinically supervised facility that helps people take their first step toward being clean and sober. Detoxification, or detox, eliminates accumulated substances and purges them from the body; however, it shouldn’t be confused with drug and/or alcohol rehab as a whole. Detox alone is not rehab. Alcohol or drug withdrawal symptoms commence as early as two hours after the last use or drink, and can linger for weeks, and fluctuating from jitters and anxiety to serious health complications, such as delirium tremors and seizures. Some of the milder withdrawal symptoms commencing alcohol or drugs are nausea, anxiety, tremors, headache, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, chills, and fatigue. A few of the more severe drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms are seizures and hallucinations.
Although some people may find the possibility of detox scary, top-of-the-line facilities ensure detox is safe and suitable for each and every person. So local centers utilize healthy and confirmed methods that deal with each and every patient as individuals with different detox requirements. Our treatment center employs safe and verified methods that treat each patient based on their different detox needs. For any questions, or to speak with a detox expert, call Treatment Care Recovery at (509) 302-2334 as soon as possible.
The varieties of detox
The two types of detox most often used in detox centers are medically supervised withdrawal and social detoxification. Health care professionals could select medically supervised withdrawal or social detoxification depending upon: the type of drug being used; length of addiction; age of the patient; psychological state of the patient; physical health of the patient; and the type of atmosphere most helpful to the patient. People who benefit the most from medically supervised withdrawal include people who are addicted to alcohol, pain medications (legal or illegal), barbiturates or sedatives; and/or opioids (heroin, morphine, codeine). There are a few detox medications that, if prescribed by a professional, can minimize some of the unpleasant and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that result from those substances. It’s also vital for people suffering from severe alcoholism, or who are abusing alcohol in conjunction with other drugs, to participate in medically supervised withdrawal. Withdrawing ‘cold turkey’ from alcohol can lead people to hallucinate, have seizures, or develop severe physical and psychological conditions. All of these symptoms would be avoided with specific medications provided at a medically supervised detox centers programs facility. Medically supervised withdrawal is strongly suggested for anybody that has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has a severe illness, or has been diagnosed with certain mental illnesses. Social detoxification is more appropriate for those that are expected to only experience moderate withdrawal symptoms from drugs like marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, occasional opioid use, or occasional alcohol use. In this type of detox, clients are supervised by nurses and therapists that oversee the patients’ health and try to help them during their cravings of withdrawal. Medications are not commonly used during this process. Social detoxification is a “social” experience, meaning clients aren’t separated in institution-like rooms, but are instead living with each other while they detox. This style of detox prepares addicts for a treatment program in which they will be living and working in conjunction with other people in recovery.
Different substances result in a wide range of withdrawal symptoms, which is the reason why we offer so many detox procedures. Withdrawal from stimulants (including amphetamines, methamphetamine, and cocaine) is most often uncomplicated, and emotional support from family members, loved ones, and therapists is usually all that is essential. Sometimes, psychiatrists recommend medication to prevent stimulant psychosis, which can result in: suicidal emotions; suicide attempts; paranoid delusions; or psychosis. Opiates, such as heroin, morphine, codeine, and OxyContin, can lead to withdrawal symptoms that range from minor or major health dangers, such as runny nose, sweating, anxiousness, depression, rapid pulse, rapid breathing, bone sensitivity, muscle pain, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. Depressants, like barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol, can result in hallucinations, tremors, seizures, increased blood pressure, higher heart rate, and increased body temperature. Relapse is much more common when addicts participate only in detox, so clients are urged to continue right into a 28-day, 60-day, or 90-day rehab programs to start drug or alcohol rehab. Detox is bolstered in rehab, where addicts take part in group and individual counseling, the twelve-step community, and engaging diversions and physical activity. For many people, detox is a crucial first step towards recovering from substance abuse, but it is ONLY a first step, and isn’t meant to replace a rehabilitation program.

We Can Help
Although in a few circumstances, detox is a vital initial step, detox is just a first step, and shouldn’t be used instead of drug or alcohol rehab. Unlike many other treatment centers, we provide support and rehabilitation programs after the detox process. Detox may improve bodily health; however, it doesn’t address any core mental causes for alcohol and drug use. Facilities that only supply detoxification services can’t make sure that their clients stay clean and sober forever. We want our clients to leave detox with the tools to fight drug and alcohol addiction for the remainder of their lives. Relapse is much more common when addicts participate only in detox, so we urge clients to continue right into a 28-day, 60-day, or 90-day rehab program to start drug or alcohol rehab. Detox is bolstered in rehab, where addicts take part in group and individual counseling, the twelve-step community, and engaging diversions and physical activity. time is now to change a suffering individual’s life around.
