Optional Medical Drug Detox Program
Alcohol and other drug detoxification is often times recommended at the beginning or before treatment. When an addict stops drinking or taking certain drugs they can be faced with physical withdrawal.
Detox is a process to monitor and stabilize a person to make this time more manageable. Medically qualified staff are available around-the-clock to meet and address the addicted individual’s withdrawal needs.
Withdrawal Symptoms can vary but can include:
- Rapid heart rate, heart complications
- Delirium (The DT’s)
Medical withdrawal provides care in different ways including:
- The management of acute withdrawal symptoms including the prevention of seizures that can be life threatening
- Receiving prescribed medications that lessen the impact of withdrawal and suppresses craving
- Ensures the individual is stabilized physically and able to undertake alcohol treatment programming.
