Why Do You Need Inpatient Detox?
Detox is the process of removing any traces of drugs and toxins from the body to allow the body to start adapting to functioning without drugs. Our detox process at the 90210 Recovery helps to break the physical ties of addiction which are usually just as strong as the mental ties.
While a patient may be willing and ready to quit the use of drugs, the changes to the nervous system and brain that are caused by long-term use bring about cravings that are too strong to handle, and the patient resorts to using the drug to calm the effects, continuing the cycle.
Withdrawal symptoms, which are the side effects that manifest once the use of a substance is stopped, Drugs drive people to make decisions and choices they know are dangerous and harmful. Withdrawal symptoms differ with different drugs but the most common are;
- Aching or weakness
- Muscle cramps
- Paranoia and anxiety
- Vomiting and nausea
Withdrawal from alcohol is a long process that can sometimes take weeks. Detox aims at mitigating withdrawal symptoms making recovery as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
With monitoring and supervision from nurses and doctors, detox helps even those with chronic substance addiction manage the side effects of the recovery process. Patients are ready for the next phase of treatment after the detox process is complete.
Why Are Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs Important?
Detoxification is a very vital process for the psychological and mental wellness of an individual trying to quit alcohol use and addiction. It is also important for the physical wellness of a person. Some drugs may be easy to quit without severe side effects, but for alcohol and drugs such as benzodiazepines, it can be very dangerous to quit without the care of medical staff.
Despite alcohol being legal and socially accepted in many social circles around the world, it is one of the most dangerous drugs to quit from.
Detox from alcohol addiction is usually accompanied by withdrawal symptoms such as seizures, hallucinations, and delirium tremens.
Without proper treatment and supervision, severe cases of addiction can be dangerous to the one undergoing the detox process.
Detox from Other Drugs & Substances
Even with no immediate risk of harm to people trying to beat addiction, the detox process reduces the pressure and stress experienced in the first days of recovery, helping the patient have a healthier and clearer mindset while reducing the likelihood of relapse.
Our programs address dependency on substances that include:
- Stimulants (Methamphetamine)
- Hallucinogens (LSD/Acid)
- Heroin and other opiates
Our Detox Process
We advocate for a compassionate and comprehensive approach that addresses all aspects of emotional, mental, and physical health. Our staff will be with you throughout the whole process, providing support and guidance to keep you focused and comfortable on your objectives and goals.
We use disulfiram, acamprosate, naltrexone, methadone, and suboxone to reduce the dangerous side effects and cravings and to prevent relapse.
The detox process and recovery journey, in general, is never an easy process to undergo. Quitting alcohol use after years of dependency can be a very traumatizing event, especially because of the withdrawal symptoms that come with stopping use. But there is no gain without pain.
If well managed and monitored, the detox process can be simple and stress-free. This is why it is recommended that you visit a detox or rehab center to have the detox process done by professionals.
