Detox

Today Drug Rehab Center- Call (510) 246-8864 and Find Help Immediately!

Treatment Rehabilitation Addiction assists people in taking the first step toward recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction, using safe, supervised medical facilities and custom-created detox regimens. Detoxification, also referred to as detox, is a procedure used to eliminate drugs and harmful substances from the body. Detox by itself is not rehabilitation. The detox process can be intimidating for those who have tried the ‘cold turkey’ method, or for those who have been abusing for years, however, it doesn’t have to be. Considering that detox tactics are different for each and every addiction – and it might be unhealthy to use ‘cold turkey’ method in lots of circumstances – California Detox Treatment uses secure and medically verified methods, offering a custom-created experience for every patient. For any questions, or to talk to a detox specialist, call Detoxification Treatment Center Hayward at 510 246-8864 as soon as possible!

Types of Detox

The two kinds of detox are medically supervised withdrawal, and social detoxification. Health care experts may choose either one, depending on:

  • the type of substance being abused
  • duration of abuse
  • age of the client
  • mental state of the patient
  • physical health of the client
  • what sort of environment the professionals believe might be most useful to the patient

Medically supervised withdrawal is most often suggested for those that are hooked on:

  • alcohol
  • pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
  • barbiturates or sedatives
  • opioids (heroin, OxyContin7, codeine)

The unusually nasty, pain withdrawal symptoms of these drugs are lessened by specific detox medications that can only be prescribed by a doctor. It is also important for people suffering from severe alcoholism, or who’re abusing alcohol together with different substances, to participate in medically supervised withdrawal. Generally, medically supervised withdrawal centers make the most of medications to prevent medical complications because of withdrawal, like hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and psychological problems people experience while trying to stop ‘cold turkey’. Additionally, any person that has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has life-threatening sickness, or has been diagnosed with certain mental illnesses requires medically supervised withdrawal so as to thoroughly wean themselves from drugs and/or alcohol.

Social detoxification is most effective for addicts that are expected to only experience mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • methamphetamine
  • infrequent opioid use
  • infrequent alcohol use

In this type of detox, clients are supervised by medical staff and counselors who manage the patients’ well-being, and try to help them during their cravings of withdrawal without using medicine. Social detoxification is a “social” process; that means clients aren’t separated in hospital-like rooms, but are living alongside each other while they detox. This model of detox readies addicts for a treatment program detox wherein they will be living along with and working along with other people in recovery.

Today Drug Rehab Center’s Methods

Detox Treatment Rehab Hayward, CA knows that different drugs are result in a wide range of withdrawal symptoms, making it essential to take part in a detox program that takes this into account.

  • hallucinations
  • tremors
  • seizures
  • higher blood pressure
  • increased heart rate
  • increased body temperature

Stimulants (for example, amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, and Ritalin) don’t frequently require more than emotional support from family, loved ones, and therapists. It isn’t uncommon for habitual stimulants-abusers to need medication because they have been diagnosed with stimulant psychosis, which may cause:

  • suicidal thoughts
  • suicide attempts
  • paranoia
  • psychosis

Opioids, such as heroin, morphine, codeine, and OxyContin, can lead to withdrawal symptoms which are minor or serious health dangers, including:

  • runny nose
  • sweating
  • nervousness
  • depression
  • rapid pulse
  • quickening breathing
  • bone sensitivity
  • muscle pain
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea

Take the First Step

For many users, detox is an important first step towards recovering from substance abuse, however, it’s ONLY a first step, and doesn’t take the place of a rehabilitation program. Even though many detox centers don’t provide reinforcement to follow up after detox, Detoxification Treatment Center Hayward understands how easy it is to relapse after detox if the addict doesn’t begin treatment. Today Drug Rehab Center uses detox in tandem with rehab and other drug and alcohol abuse treatment methods, so that detox is a good first step. Recovery is possible, and, in some instances, detox is a vital beginning to the rehab process if followed by a treatment program, such as Addiction Programs.
