“If you wanted to stop using, you would just stop.” This is one of the most common statements people who have an addiction make. Yet, you continue to use. It is hard to admit that you are facing one of the most challenging times of your life right now. The good news, however, is that there is help available. Our team at the Addiction Recovery Institute of America offers the tools and resources to guide you. This includes what, for many, is the first step on the road to recovery: professional detox.
What Is Professional Detox?
First, let’s be very clear. Although many people attempt to detox without medical guidance, it is never recommended. This is because in the vast majority of cases, it leads to failure and relapse, and, in some cases, physical health risks and even death. The goal of any type of detox is to allow your body’s metabolism to process the drugs and alcohol and then to rid them from the body. Because of how long it takes the liver and kidneys to break down these substances, it is rare for this to happen quickly. As a result, you have to withstand a significant amount of discomfort during the process if you tried to do it on your own. The frequent result is, sadly, that people relapse.
Professional detox is different. It allows our professional team to provide you with a safe place to stay as we work to encourage your body to cleanse itself and manage your withdrawal symptoms. During this process, there are several key benefits to you.
One of the key opportunities in our professional detox program in Florida is medication-assisted treatment (MAT). When detox is medication-assisted, it simply means that medications are used to help your brain to function normally as it weans itself from drugs or alcohol. That can help to reduce the risk of health complications and minimize the cravings you feel. With reduced withdrawal symptoms, you may feel better during your treatment process, and that can make it more likely that you will complete it.
Emotional and Physical Support
When you enroll in a substance abuse treatment program in Florida, you get more than just a safe place for the drugs to leave your body. You also gain a lot of support. That includes having a medical team available to handle any physical health problems that arise. We can help to reduce the risk of overdose while also reducing the risk of health complications, which vary depending upon the type of drugs you are using.
At the Addiction Recovery Institute of America, detox is also only the first of many steps on the road to recovery. That means that as you undergo your professional detox, you are already learning about your disease and how to manage it properly. You are learning strategies for dealing with the real world and your thought patterns, and even beginning therapy. This can be motivating and empowering.
