What is Detox?
When the body and mind become addicted to a drug, your body relies on the substance to provide a state of normalcy. When the drug is taken away, withdrawal symptoms set in that can range from just feeling uncomfortable all the way to the extreme of being life-threatening. When you begin the detox process, you stop using the drugs you have been abusing and remain in detox while they leave your body. You begin to experience withdrawal symptoms start as your body gets used to not having these substances in its system.
The withdrawals that happen during detox have different symptoms and severity depending on the substance that was being abused, how long it was abused, and the amount that was being used. Each person has a different detox experience. At Everlast, we individualize each person’s detoxification treatment to help with withdrawal symptoms and to make you as comfortable as possible. By the end of the detox process, your withdrawal symptoms should be under control. Your body has made significant adjustments already and will continue to adjust as your recovery progresses.
Will I Take Medication in Detox?
Detoxing will most likely require some kind of supportive medication. The medications given during detox protect you from uncomfortable and severe withdrawal symptoms while the drugs leave your system and your body adjusts. You will usually take this medication until your withdrawal symptoms are under control.
At Everlast Recovery Centers, we provide sub-acute medical detox. During the process, we use medications to manage withdrawal symptoms while the person completes detox. Everlast always makes medication decisions on an individual basis, and medications are always consulted under a doctor’s care.
At Everlast, we consider total abstinence as the ultimate goal. However, we recognize everyone has different needs. When choosing Everlast, you can be sure that your treatment will always be adjusted to meet your specific needs.
What Can I Expect During Detox?
After the admissions process, Everlast’s admitting physician will meet with you and get your medications arranged. You will then begin our detox program.
Everything about the program at Everlast is designed for your safety and comfort while you detox. Nurses are onsite throughout the day and on-call 24 hours a day. For your safety, the first three days of your stay the staff will make rounds every 15 minutes and then eventually to every thirty minutes. Our team is always available to help you whenever you need it.
Other procedures included in detox at Everlast include:
During detox, you will need time to rest and adapt, physically and mentally, as the drugs leave your system. After detox, you can expect more intensive therapy and skill-building in inpatient treatment that will help you attain long-lasting sobriety.
