When a loved one suffers addiction to drugs or alcohol, they will need to go through a detoxification process in our drug and alcohol rehab campuses. Detoxification is the initial step in addiction recovery.
Our detox is based on the principle that physically unwell patients struggle to handle any underlying mental health issues. Therefore, our detox aims to handle the physical side first. Afterward, patients are ready to address the psychological features of addiction as part of our intensive addiction rehab program.
It is how alcohol and drugs in the body are flushed out, ensuring the patient is physically stable and ready for therapy. Alcohol and drug addiction cause the body to get used to being in the body’s system. When substances are reduced and removed via detox, the brain adjusts the sudden drop in the chemicals. This results in clients experiencing unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
Our detox process minimizes withdrawal symptoms’ adverse effects and makes the experience safe and comfortable. Our most effective form of detox is medically assisted, where we have trained specialists. This takes place in our facility under the supervision of doctors, nurses, and other trained healthcare professionals. Attempting self-detox is usually unsuccessful and causes patients to experience unnecessary withdrawal symptoms that can be severe.
When you come to our drug rehab treatment centers in California, ensure our patients undergo a thorough medical assessment. This ensures we build an accurate picture of the needs of an individual. Our experts gather medical history and details about the addiction in the evaluation and use this to create a personalized detox plan.
When the amount of alcohol and drugs is reduced, the patient’s system will indicate withdrawal symptoms. The type of withdrawal symptoms and how severe they are depend on how long the patient consumes alcohol and drugs. Other factors that affect the severity of symptoms are how much the patient has been using and the mental and physical health.
We understand that every person uniquely goes through detox, and every detox is different, even if the patient has undergone detox before. Withdrawal symptoms manifest in physical symptoms such as sweating, shivering, nausea, increased heart rate, temperature and chills, headaches, hallucinations, muscle and bone pain, and exhaustion. Psychological symptoms of detox include anxiety, depression, mood swings, agitation, paranoia, irritability, intense cravings, insomnia, and lack of concentration.
To assist patients in coping with withdrawal, we give them controlled medication during detox. Of course, no prescription prevents withdrawal symptoms, but some medications help ease the withdrawal symptoms. As top rehab centers of Los Angeles, we are tasked with ensuring that your detox is as uncomfortable as possible.
