Are you afraid of drug and alcohol detox? Perhaps you know that you will deal with opioid or alcohol withdrawal symptoms that you feel you can’t survive.
If you’re wondering how you got here, we can tell you…
Addiction causes the body to become physically reliant on drugs and alcohol. Your body has become accustomed to operating with the substance, so when you try to cut it out – your body goes into revolt.
Although this seems scary and you’re not sure where to start, our drug and alcohol detox program can help you.
Don’t ever try to go detox alone. You probably already know this but some types of withdrawal can be dangerous. This is especially true for alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids.
Opioid withdrawals, while seldom dangerous are still highly uncomfortable and painful. We know that if anyone is forced to go through opioid withdrawal without any type of medical help they are more likely to give in to cravings and relapse.
For those who are in need of opioid detox:
At Recovery in Motion, we don’t believe in the stigma that surrounds Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and we are more than willing to offer it to our patients that are a good fit. MAT is proven effective for opioid withdrawal. Contact us today with any questions you may have about our program.
Recovery in Motion’s medical professionals are experienced in handling alcohol withdrawal symptoms. We understand that roughy 71% of those experiencing alcohol detoxification will show significant alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
For those who are addicted to alcohol:
We understand that patients who experience painful withdrawal symptoms are more likely to want to leave treatment. While some discomfort is to be expected, our medical professionals seek to help treat the majority of your discomfort to produce a better outcome.
Our comprehensive Tucson facility has been designed and developed to serve every individual’s unique set of addiction characteristics. Addiction treatment should never be one size fits all. Our aspiration is to ensure the highest potential for long-term recovery. We are prepared to assist in gentle transitions from each phase of recovery into the next, starting with the detox phase.
Our medical staff takes care to create and monitor detox timelines. We ensure that if you are experiencing alcohol withdrawal symptoms, you will be medically treated with alcohol withdrawal medication to ensure comfortability. The same goes for opioid detox, we use medication-assisted therapy to ensure that you do not experience the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal.
While severe addictions require 24-hour care during detox, those with mild or moderate addictions may successfully detox in a home environment, with loved ones available for adequate care and support between visits with a medical professional.
There are several levels of care that addiction specialists in Arizona consider for patients who need professional substance detox treatment. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has shown that the addiction medicine community is committed to achieving an effective system of care that supports patients’ clinical needs with the appropriate and most cost-effective treatment plan.
When being evaluated for a treatment plan at Recovery In Motion, the following six considerations are assessed by an addiction medicine specialist, in addition to many others that are specific to the patient, such as health and lifestyle traits.
Once the assessment is complete, the clinician will make a determination for the level of substance abuse detox that will be safest for the patient, as well as provide him or her with the highest possible level of comfort during the period of time in which the body adjusts to the abrupt increase in biochemical manufacturing by the brain.
These five levels of care are organized and supervised by a medical professional that has evaluated the addicted individual. The assessments of our patients are broad and complete, taking numerous approaches into consideration before building a treatment strategy. This helps to ensure that all efforts are constructive and enhance the potential for long-term recovery.
At Recovery In Motion, the first priority in substance detox is one’s physical health and safety while the substance is leaving the body. One’s physical reaction to detox can be severe, sometimes leading to death, as the chemical imbalance created by the addiction is disrupted and the brain adjusts its production of these important chemicals.
Our medical professionals carefully monitor vital signs during detox in order to assist with medication if necessary, effectively managing withdrawal symptoms that the body struggles to process. We try to make a natural detox for our patients if we can also via exercise and other methods.
Symptoms of withdrawal in detox vary widely from person to person and addiction to addiction. Common withdrawal symptoms include depression, anxiety, insomnia, muscles pain, headache, raised heartbeat, agitation, slowed breathing, excessive sweating and inability to focus.
Other, often dangerous withdrawal symptoms during drug and alcohol detox can include nausea and vomiting, trembling, difficulty breathing, heart attack, stroke and seizures. These symptoms most often peak about 3 days after the last substance use and can last seven to 10 days.
While detox can be intimidating for many individuals considering substance abuse treatment, medically-assisted detox decreases the possibility of death and can make the process much more tolerable.
