Detoxification is the first step taken to treat drug abuse. The process removes toxins from the body and helps individuals withdraw safely from their substance of abuse. Without proper care, severe health problems can develop from physical withdrawal. The detox program treats addictions to drugs such as Xanax, oxycontin, opiate, meth, cocaine, designer drugs and prescription pills.
A medically assisted detoxification involves the use of specific medicine that can ease withdrawal symptoms with no complications. A certified doctor specializing in addiction medicine will be involved in supervising the client and ensure there are no problems that develop. The goal of our staff is to ensure a successful recovery with minimal dependency on medications.
Another procedure within the drug detox program is to address the emotional and behavioral conditions that lead to addiction. Clients are also introduced to education and counseling programs to be more aware of the realities of drug addiction and recognize the effects on relationships with friends, family, and loved ones.
Drug detox is the first part of drug treatment. Detox focuses on removing toxins from the body. To ensure full recovery and prevent relapse, additional support may be necessary in order to address emotion and behavioral issues.
