Drug and Alcohol Detox in Arizona

Are you afraid of drug and alcohol detox? Although it is likely you will feel uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, you can survive.

If you’re wondering how you got here, we can tell you…

 Your body has become accustomed to operating with drugs and alcohol, 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 through detox alone. You probably already know this but some types of withdrawal can be dangerous. This is especially true for alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids.

Recovery in Motion understands the more comfortable you are during the detox process, the better.

Opioid Detox

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:

  • Recovery in Motion is a Medication-Assisted Treatment facility.
  • We perform a comprehensive initial assessment of the patient and create an opioid detox treatment plan depending on the severity of their addiction and their current health.
  • We monitor their symptoms very closely – looking for positive and consistent change in opioid withdrawal symptoms.
  • We check vital signs frequently throughout the day to ensure that there are no complications.
  • We ensure that the majority of discomfort is treated accordingly so that you can focus on your treatment.

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.

Alcohol Detox

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 perform a comprehensive initial assessment of the patient and create an alcohol withdrawal timeline depending on the severity of their addiction and their current health.
  • We monitor their addiction withdrawal timeline very carefully – looking for positive and consistent change in withdrawal symptoms.
  • We check vital signs frequently throughout the day to ensure that there are no complications.
  • We offer alcohol withdrawal medication that keeps our patients safe, able to function, and free of the more dangerous alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

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.

Medically Supervised Drug & Alcohol Detox in Arizona

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.

Drug & Alcohol Detox Evaluation

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.

  • Inclination for inebriation and withdrawal
  • Biological and medical traits
  • Psychological conditions
  • Motivation to change lifestyle
  • Potential for relapse or continued use
  • Living environment and support from loved ones

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.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine established the following “Adult Detoxification” levels of care:

  1. Level I-D: Ambulatory Detoxification Without Extended Onsite Monitoring (e.g., physician’s office, home health care agency). This level of care is an organized outpatient service monitored at predetermined intervals.
  2. Level II-D: Ambulatory Detoxification With Extended Onsite Monitoring (e.g., day hospital service). This level of care is monitored by appropriately credentialed and licensed nurses.
  3. Level III.2-D: Clinically Managed Residential Detoxification (e.g., nonmedical or social detoxification setting). This level emphasizes peer and social support and is intended for patients whose intoxication and/or withdrawal is sufficient to warrant 24-hour support.
  4. Level III.7-D: Medically Monitored Inpatient Detoxification (e.g., freestanding detoxification center). Unlike Level III.2.D, this level provides 24-hour medically supervised detoxification services.
  5. Level IV-D: Medically Managed Intensive Inpatient Detoxification (e.g., psychiatric hospital inpatient center). This level provides 24-hour care in an acute care inpatient setting.

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.

The Process of Medical Detox from Drugs & Alcohol

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.

Drug & Alcohol Withdrawals – What to Expect

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.
