What Is Drug Detox?

Detoxification, or detox, is the way toward allowing the body to eliminate the medications in it. The motivation behind detox is to securely oversee withdrawal manifestations when somebody quits consuming medications or liquor. Everybody has an alternate reaction in detox. The kind of medication and how long it was utilized influence what detox will resemble.

It can require days or months to overcome withdrawal manifestations for most medications. The length of withdrawal relies upon various components, including:

  • Kind of substance the patient is addicted to
  • How long the addiction has gone on
  • The seriousness of the addiction
  • Technique for misuse (inhaling, smoking, injection, or drinking)
  • The amount of a substance the patient takes all at once
  • Family ancestry
  • Hereditary
  • Ailment
  • Basic emotional wellness conditions

Can I detox At Home?

Choosing to detox at home can be deadly. Quitting “cold turkey” or without medical supervision can lead to serious issues such as seizures and severe dehydration. The inpatient drug detox program offered at Mountainview Recovery helps prevent dangerous complications. People with severe addictions should seek an inpatient detox because withdrawal can be fatal. This is why the drug detox program at Mountainview Recovery is an inpatient detox that includes 24-hour support and monitoring.

The Process of Drug Detox

  • Evaluation

    The medical team screens incoming patients for physical and mental health issues. Doctors use blood tests to measure the amount of drugs in the patient’s system. This helps determine the level of medications needed.

    There is also a comprehensive review of drug, medical and psychiatric histories. This information sets up the basis for the patient’s long-term treatment plan.

  • Stabilization

    The next step is to stabilize the patient with medical and psychological therapy. The goal of stabilization is to prevent any form of harm to the patient. Doctors can prescribe addiction treatment medications to prevent complications and reduce withdrawal symptoms.

  • Preparing Entry into Treatment

    The final step of detox is preparation for a drug treatment program. Doctors familiarize their patients with the treatment process and what to expect. Inpatient rehab offers the best chances of success after detox.

The Side Effects of Drug Detox

The process of drug detox can be painful and dangerous. This is why medical detox is so important. Detox with medical supervision allows patients to detox in a safe and comfortable environment. The extent of supervision is different in inpatient and outpatient rehab.

A medically supervised detox prevents dangerous complications of drug and alcohol withdrawal.

Although medical detox limits the symptoms of withdrawal, some are unavoidable. Some of the most common side effects may include:

    • Nervousness or anxiety
    • Insomnia
    • Nausea
    • Body discomfort
    • Mood swings
    • Poor sleep
    • Difficulty concentrating

Drug Detox By drug Type

Detox is more difficult for some people depending on the drugs they used. Depending on the drug, withdrawal symptoms may be more physical or more mental.

Cocaine withdrawal, for instance, is psychological. Detox involves managing initial cravings and anxiety. But alcohol withdrawal includes physical symptoms that can cause seizures or death in some cases.

Detox often includes medications that mimic the effects of drugs to reduce withdrawal symptoms. Medications may also target co-occurring disorders or general discomfort.

Drugs that are most dangerous to detox from, and often require medication, include alcohol and benzodiazepines. The drugs that are considered the most uncomfortable to detox from are opioids, especially heroin.

Life After Drug Detox

Detox is just the first part of addiction treatment. Detox on its own is usually insufficient for a successful recovery. Addicted people need to treat the psychological part of their addiction. They can accomplish this with counseling, support groups or an inpatient rehab program. An addiction provider will help you transition into your new treatment plan.

I transferred to Mountainview Recovery after a month of rehab at a different treatment center. I found that the two... centers were very different in their approach to recovery, as well as how the staff treated me as a client. From my very first day, I was treated like family at Mountainview. Through daily classes and psychotherapy, I gained the knowledge that I needed to maintain my sobriety. I came to understand why I had an addiction & eventually found the strength that I needed to return to my normal life without relying on a substance to escape. The house is beautiful & managed by staff that go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Food was provided with weekly gift cards so we could eat what we wanted. Most of us made meals together. We had meetings by the fire pit & went on weekly hikes. I am so thankful for the lifelong connections & friendships that I made at MVR.I am stronger & happier now than I have been in decades. I wake up each morning with purpose & a sense of hope. I give Mountainview so much credit for my recovery. I could have never done this on my own.read more
