Detox: The first step in your journey to sobriety
Drug addiction causes drastic changes in the brain, giving rise to compulsive drug-seeking behaviors. When chronic users stop taking their drug of choice, they often experience risky withdrawal symptoms that may endanger their lives or cause serious brain damage. Under such circumstances, a detox treatment in a medically supervised environment at a reliable substance abuse treatment center is the first step towards recovery and starting life anew.
What is detox treatment?
The detox treatment process includes a set of interventions that remove toxins from the body with the support of nurses and medications. The medications aid in responding to the withdrawal symptoms while also managing a taper. A taper, as demonstrated by research, makes the detox process easier. A medical detox helps make the uncomfortable symptoms milder, hold cravings at bay, and give the person a better chance of avoiding a relapse. This helps effectively reduce withdrawal symptoms and ensure medical stabilization of the patient.
At Invictus Health Group’s partnering drug addiction treatment center, they provide detox treatment services at a state-of-the-art center for:
- Illicit drugs
- Prescription drugs
The main objective of detox treatment centers is not only to eliminate these harmful substances from the system, but also effectively manage the symptoms associated with withdrawal and prepare the body, physically and mentally, for the ensuing addiction treatment.
Common Withdrawal Symptoms
When drug users quit using addictive substances, they often experience withdrawal symptoms that differ depending on the drug used. Common withdrawal symptoms associated with the use of certain drugs include the following:
- Muscle aches and cramps
- Loss of consciousness
- Depressed mood
- Increased appetite
- Vivid nightmares
- Aches and pains
- Flu-like symptoms
Detox Programs with Invictus Health Group
An untreated addiction or an ineffective approach to deal with an addiction forces a drug user deeper into the grip of the drug. Invictus Health Group’s partners in the behavioral health industry offer patients a wide range of detox programs based on the severity of their addiction. These can range from the least intrusive to the most intensive.
During a medically assisted detox, each patient is entrusted in the safe hands of professional clinicians, physicians, resident assistants, and nutritionists to ensure that they receive individual attention and help manage their withdrawal symptoms smoothly.
As each case of addiction is unique, every patient receives a tailor-made recovery plan that depends upon the specific drug of abuse. For example, suboxone, methadone, and naltrexone are used to treat opioid use disorders and the associated withdrawal symptoms.
