What Is Detox Like?

When you come to Recovery Unplugged's Nashville treatment center for medical detox, we will ensure you get the medical help you need to avoid suffering from withdrawal symptoms like pain, flu-like symptoms, nausea, and intense drug and alcohol cravings.

You will live inside the inpatient drug detox and rehab centers 24 hours a day, in a clean, comfortable, and safe residence, with VIP suites available for people who need extra privacy during their stay. You will eat food created by a trained chef and have full support throughout your treatment plan from doctors, nurses, therapists, and other support professionals.

  • For alcoholism treatment and the treatment of substance abuse disorders, we provide a combination of:
  • evidence-based treatments and therapy for distress and emotional pain throughout your treatment
  • medical care from trained doctors and nurses with experience in addiction withdrawal
  • dual diagnosis treatments for co-occurring mental health issues

Along with physical and psychological care, our team can distribute safe and effective prescription medications to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms during drug detox.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

Because every type of addiction has its own withdrawal symptoms, our drug and alcohol recovery programs are custom designed to work with each individual on their level to relieve physical and behavioral symptoms effectively. Our doctors and nurses understand addiction and withdrawal and are trained to provide care within a compassionate and supportive healing environment.

You will have 24/7 monitoring because the reality of alcohol and drug detox is that sometimes the withdrawal symptoms can feel unbearable. The doctors and nurses on staff at our addiction treatment center will be there to intervene in the case of any emergency or even if you need somebody to talk to for emotional support.

You will remain under 24-hour watch until you are physically stable enough to begin your customized rehab program, either in residential treatment or as an outpatient. Some people may need to continue their medication-assisted treatment plan for weeks or months, as some drugs take time to taper off safely.

Symptoms of Detox by Drug Type

As each drug produces its own types of withdrawal symptoms, and because some people will be more affected than others due to factors like genetics, history of drug use, and behavioral or psychological factors, the Recovery Unplugged detox and rehab in Nashville will work alongside you to ensure you remain safe and comfortable throughout your time in our recovery center.


Common withdrawal symptoms from benzodiazepine drugs (benzos) include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Shaking
  • Light and sound sensitivity
  • Cravings

Benzos often require a slow taper in a medication-assisted treatment plan with therapy that can last throughout inpatient and outpatient treatments to avoid more serious withdrawal symptoms like seizures, rebound withdrawal symptoms, and long-term depression.


Opioid drugs are highly addictive and are extremely difficult to quit without medical intervention, so a medically assisted treatment (MAT) plan using medications like Suboxone or Methadone is often recommended for opioid addiction, followed by inpatient drug rehab. Common opioid withdrawal symptoms are:

  • Anxiety and rapid heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Severe drug cravings


Stimulant drugs like crack cocaine or crystal meth create intense physical and psychological drug addictions. Patients often require intensive therapy, behavioral treatments, and a strong relapse prevention program to maintain long-term sobriety. Withdrawal symptoms from these drugs include:

  • Malaise or lethargy
  • Tremors
  • Hallucinations or paranoia
  • Muscle pain
  • Insomnia or nightmares
  • Restlessness
  • Drug-induced psychosis
  • Strong drug cravings

Bath Salts

"Bath Salts" is a term that refers to two types of psychoactive synthetic street drugs: mephedrone and MDPV. Because these drugs can cause psychosis, a long-term inpatient program inside an addiction center to help avoid suicidal behavior and violence is often recommended. Common withdrawal symptoms associated with these drugs include:

  • Brain fog and reduced cognitive function
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Delirium and hallucinations


When you think of drug rehabs, you may not immediately think of marijuana users, but chronic everyday users of this drug who quit cold turkey may experience withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia and nightmares
  • Decreased appetite
  • Depression or malaise
  • Tremors
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever with chills


Dextromethorphan (DXM) is the ingredient in some cough syrups and has some psychoactive and stimulant properties. Withdrawal from DXM is often very uncomfortable and is best conducted within an addiction treatment program. Symptoms include:

  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Cold flashes
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Restlessness and insomnia
  • Drug cravings


Because MDMA is a stimulant street drug often sold to partygoers, drug dealers will cut it with other substances, including heroin, ketamine, and amphetamines, without the buyer knowing. It is also used alongside other substances, including alcohol and marijuana. This mix of substances makes detoxing from MDMA a unique experience for each person, more difficult for some people than others. Some of the common withdrawal symptoms are:

  • Confusion and paranoia
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Agitation and restlessness
  • Memory and cognitive impairment
  • Fatigue


Fentanyl is a strong and potent opioid drug that often requires longer-term inpatient rehab, followed by outpatient rehab once detoxing is over. There may be rebound symptoms and cravings for weeks or months after detox is over. Common withdrawal symptoms from fentanyl include:

  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Restlessness
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Severe drug cravings


Not enough is known about all hallucinogenic drugs to truly understand the effects they have on the brain and body at this point. They affect sensory perceptions, muscle control, mood, and thought processes, and some hallucinogenic drugs, like PCP and ketamine, have addictive properties, with withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Headaches
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Stiff muscles
  • Depressed breathing
  • Convulsions
  • Strong drug cravings


Oxycodone is a prescription opioid drug for pain management, often after surgery or for chronic pain issues. Like most opioid drugs, oxy addiction will likely require a stay in an inpatient program in a drug rehab center, followed by outpatient rehab with connections to peer support, recovery meetings, and a strong sober network for the best results. Withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • High blood pressure and rapid heartbeat
  • Insomnia and restlessness
  • Muscle aches
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting
  • Strong drug cravings

Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug abuse is a common issue, and there are many drugs prescribed by doctors that have addictive properties. If you use prescription drugs not as intended, like crushing and snorting pills or taking more than the recommended dose, this drug abuse can lead to addiction. Even if you take your medications as advised by your doctor, you may be at risk of developing a dependence over time, so it is essential to be honest with yourself and your medical provider regarding prescription medication use.

Acute Detox

There are different levels of care for drug detox in the Recovery Unplugged treatment facility, with varying types of treatment provided depending on your needs. Acute detox is a personalized plan for people with severe addictions or life-threatening conditions requiring intensive, full-time care. You will have 24/7 monitoring by staff and nurses overseen by experienced doctors, ensuring you do not suffer from dangerous seizures, breathing or heart issues, or other dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Keeping you safe is our number one priority.

Sub-Acute Detox

A sub-acute detox plan in our drug and alcohol rehab centers is more like staying in a sober living home with extra help from medical professionals as you detox. This is a program for those with less-severe withdrawal symptoms who do not require such an intense level of monitoring and care. You will still stay in the rehab facility to help you avoid temptations as your body and brain adjust to the lack of drugs in your system.
