Drug Detox

It’s time to realize that you can’t deal with your drug addiction on your own. Call Recovery Unplugged today at 1 (800) 55-REHAB to end the revolving and deadly cycle of drug addiction. We’re here to help.

Starting the Drug Treatment Process

While each stage of the drug treatment process is important, ensuring that patients are clean and medically stable is the critical first step to recovery. Drug detox allows patients to purge their systems of the toxins that have built up in their bodies as a result of ongoing and unaddressed drug abuse. It is a serious medical procedure that requires the help of an experienced professional to ensure patients’ safety and success. Recovery Unplugged offers safe, discreet and comprehensive medically supervised drug detox to patients suffering from any form of drug abuse. Call us today at 1 (800) 55-REHAB to start the healing process.

The Drug Addiction Withdrawal Period

By the time a patient’s substance abuse rises to the level of chemical dependency, they are already experiencing a variety of moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms. While each patient’s symptoms will be different, some of the more common include:

• Fever and Flu-like Symptoms
• Joint and Muscle Pain
• Headache or Migraine
• Intestinal Problems (Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea)
• Acute Sensitivity to Pain (Also Known as Hyperalgesia)

Other symptoms can include fatigue, hallucinations, paranoia, anxiety depression and sleep disorder. These withdrawal symptoms must be treated by a detox-trained physician. Drug detox can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending upon patients’ ongoing progress and clinical needs. Each patient will be assessed by one of our experienced treatment professionals upon entry into our drug treatment program.

Why Do I Need Drug Detox?

If allowed to persist, drug abuse and addiction will completely transform a person, both on the inside and the outside. This includes creating complex alterations to the brain’s chemistry that direct and dictate their behavioral actions. The longer abuse continues, the more vulnerable addicts become to withdrawal symptoms and other lifestyle-related medical conditions. These changes are not something that an addict can overcome by quitting on their own and locking themselves in their bedroom.

Professional, medically supervised drug detox offers patients access to compassionate and expert withdrawal relief in a clean, sterile and supportive environment. It also provides a clinical safety net for those who experience serious medical issues during their withdrawal. Experienced doctors and nurses will be able to intervene and provide prompt and effective relief. The drug detox process will vary based on each patient’s substance abuse history and clinical care needs.

After Drug Detox

Addressing the physical aspects of drug addiction is only half the battle. After patients are medically stabilized and cleared to continue their treatment, they will undergo a thorough and comprehensive course of rehab. This process will allow them to address the behavioral issues associated with their drug addiction and learn to confront the origins of their substance abuse. Recovery Unplugged offers proven and effective music-based drug treatment that begins with detox.
