Drug Detox and Alcohol Detox: The first step in treating addiction

If you have been or have ever known anyone who has struggled with substance use disorder (the formal term for addiction), you know how radically it reshapes the lives it touches. For the user of drugs and alcohol, it becomes a daily presence in their lives. On a chemical, emotional, psychological, and even a spiritual level, substance use becomes inseparable from daily life. Rehab, and especially drug detox and alcohol detox are the easiest and best way to change your life. They are the first step in the process of breaking these chains that bind people to their addictions. 

What are Drug Withdrawal and Alcohol Withdrawal

Because of the nature of intoxicating substances, if human beings cease using drugs and/or alcohol after a significant period of use, they’ll go through some form of drug withdrawal and/or alcohol withdrawal. As the body attempts to adjust to the new drug and alcohol free equilibrium. Neither Drug Withdrawal nor Alcohol Withdrawal have a universal set of symptoms. Both Drug Withdrawal Symptoms and Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms can vary widely depending on a multitude of factors. These include the substance in question, the duration of use and average quantity of use. Along with individual factors such as metabolism and overall physical health.

Why get Detox? 

If you could guarantee that your New Year’s Resolution would come true, wouldn’t you? If you’ve decided to get sober this New Year (first of all, congratulations!), you should give yourself the best possible chance of getting sober. And, most importantly, staying sober. 

Drug detox plays a pivotal role in combating substance abuse by providing a structured and supervised environment. One where patients can have their withdrawal symptoms treated by professionals. By undergoing detoxification, individuals can experience a smoother transition towards sobriety. Detox mitigates the severe discomfort and health risks associated with abrupt cessation of drug and alcohol use. This critical initial phase offers medical support, medications when necessary, and psychological guidance to address withdrawal symptoms. This reduces the intensity of cravings and the likelihood of relapse. Going through the effort to get clean, only to give up those gains in a moment of weakness, is a fate that we’d wish on no one. That’s why we offer supervised detox programs. So that when you decide to get sober, you can disarm your most dangerous opponent: yourself

Moreover, detoxification sets the foundation for a comprehensive treatment plan. It addresses not only the physical dependency but also the psychological and behavioral aspects of addiction. By navigating this crucial stage under professional care, individuals gain the tools, support, and resilience needed to navigate the challenges of early recovery, enhancing their chances of sustained abstinence and minimizing the risk of relapse.

How does Drug Detox and Alcohol Detox treat Drug Withdrawal and Alcohol Withdrawal? 

Drug Withdrawal and Alcohol Withdrawal can be dangerous, sickening and even lethal if you go through them without proper care and support. 

Drug detoxification aims to manage and alleviate the symptoms of drug withdrawal while the body rids itself of its chemical dependency. As well as the toxic by-products that build up after sustained use. In some cases, individuals undergoing detox require medical supervision, especially when withdrawing from substances that can lead to severe or potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms, such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, or opioids. 

At ARIA, in our drug detox center in West Palm Beach, medical professionals can manage the withdrawal process through supervised detox. They can monitor vital signs, provide medications to manage symptoms, and intervene directly, if complications arise, to ensure comfort and care.

Providing a supportive environment is crucial during detox. At ARIA, our addiction treatment specialists make specific recommendations only after a careful review. But this assistance can often involve offering psychological support, counseling, and education about the detoxification process. Emotional support from healthcare professionals or peers can be beneficial in helping individuals navigate the challenges of withdrawal. 

You’ll never have to battle your addiction yourself at ARIA. AT ARIA, you’ll receive continuous monitoring of your recovery progress. To make sure that any health complications that may arise during the detox process are treated immediately.
