The detoxification process is potentially harmful, so it is imperative that no one attempts to detox on their own. Detox from alcohol and /or drugs needs to be done under medical supervision. Detox is the process of medically managing the body’s physical withdrawal from alcohol or drugs to minimize the side effects and help prevent harmful consequences.
Alleviating Withdrawal Symptoms
The first step in treatment of alcohol and drug addiction is the detoxification process. This process is monitored by a combination of medical personnel using the necessary protocol to meet your needs. These protocols consist of a combination of medication with similar properties as the abused drug used in tapering doses. The detox process helps alleviate serious withdrawal symptoms and helps prevent complications such as seizures, hallucinations, uncontrollable blood pressure, delirium tremors and panic attacks. The length of time required for this detox process varies depending on the substance, amounts, and length of usage, but generally runs 3-10 days.
Treatment after Detoxification
While being physically free from the substance(s) of choice individuals are still just as mentally addicted now as they were before entering detox. These cravings can be overwhelming and the next step is to begin residential treatment, where treating the individual as a whole will start.
