Why Do You Need Inpatient Detox?
Detoxification, also commonly referred to as the detox process is the process of getting rid of the drugs and substances from the body. This process helps in breaking the dependency one develops on drugs after using it for some time.
Addiction brings about changes in the nervous system and the brain when a patient tries to quit, they experience cravings and withdrawal symptoms that are eased with the same substances, thus the patient could find themselves in an endless loop of quitting and relapsing.
The side effects of quitting the use of substances also known as withdrawal are experienced after hours of quitting. They can be very influential. Some withdrawal symptoms can be severe and life-threatening if they are not treated by a professional. The intensity of the symptoms is based on how much they used, how long they have been using among other factors. But the most common symptoms are;
- Weakness and aching
- Muscle cramps
- Paranoia and anxiety
- Vomiting and nausea
Withdrawal is a long and uncomfortable, sometimes even painful process that could last days or weeks. Detox focuses on easing the symptoms of withdrawal, making it pain-free and uncomfortable. Detox helps those with addiction disorders to manage these symptoms.
After the detox process is complete and all toxins have left the body, the patient can now enter the next level of care which is the residential treatment program.
Why Are Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs Important?
Detox is crucial for the psychological and mental wellness of people that are struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. It is also important for their physical well-being. Some substances can be treated without having to experience negative ramifications, but for substances such as alcohol and benzodiazepines, it can be very dangerous to quit.
Despite alcohol being legal in many parts of the world, and even socially accepted in many areas, alcohol addiction is still one of the most dangerous substances to quit from.
Withdrawal from alcohol causes symptoms such as seizures, hallucinations, and delirium tremens.
Without the supervision and care of the professional and medical team at our facility, detox from alcohol can be deadly.
Benzos or in medical terms benzodiazepines are depressants that are prescribed for the central nervous system. They are very beneficial when used for the right purposes, however, when abused, benzos can be incredibly dangerous.
Long-term abuse of benzos can lead to a condition referred to as Benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome and is identified by symptoms such as the increased risk of suicide, psychosis, seizures, and heart palpitations.
Detox from Other Drugs & Substances
Detox does not pose any immediate risk for people suffering from addiction, however, it does alleviate the pressure and stress of the symptoms in the first few days of treatment. It puts the patient in a healthier and clearer mindset and reduces the chances of relapsing.
