Alcohol & Drug Detox

The severe symptoms and tremendous discomfort of withdrawal discourages many addicts from seeking treatment for their addiction. Each individual is affected by withdrawal differently, and symptoms can be mental, physical, or both. Alcohol, opiates, and tranquilizer withdrawal are usually associated with physical withdrawal symptoms like sweating, muscle tension, tremor, and vomiting. Cocaine, ecstasy, and methamphetamine withdrawal usually create emotional symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, depression, insomnia, and social isolation.

In a medically supervised detox unit, patients can rid their bodies of drugs and alcohol safely and comfortably. In many instances, medication is administered to lessen the sensation of severe withdrawal symptoms. It can also be dangerous for an addict to stop using on their own. For example, alcohol cessation can result in a rapid rise in blood pressure and/or temperature that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Grand mal seizures are another serious side effect that can occur when one refrains from using alcohol. Hallucinations are also common in those detoxing from alcohol abuse. While the actual hallucination is not dangerous, the reaction to the hallucination can be. These dangers are also present during the elimination of tranquilizers from the body.

Detox is a way to cleanse the mind and body of harmful substances that are present. While detox is not cure for drug addiction, it plays a very important role in early recovery. When drugs and alcohol are inside the body, the body and mind will function differently than when these toxins are present. Rehabilitation can only begin once the detoxification process has been completed.

Upon entering detox, every individual is physically and emotionally evaluated. During this evaluation process, the root of an addiction is usually revealed. This allows both the patient and staff to set a care plan in place for the next stage of recovery, if the patient chooses.

During the detox process, contact to the outside world is restricted. This allows the patient to concentrate on the beginning of their recovery. Allowing contact with friends and family may cause the patient to return to their normal habits and addictive behaviors.

If you feel that your life has been taken over by your addiction and it is spinning out of control, detox is the first step to recovery. For more information, please give us a call today at (973) 310-2220 , or visit us at .aaa-alcoholdrugrehab.com.
