Medication-Assisted Detox Near Decatur, IL
Detox is always the first stage of addiction treatment. Medication-assisted detox manages drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms and reduces the risk of withdrawal-related complications. Many patients receive medications that relieve their symptoms. Every detox treatment is different from the next based on factors like the type of symptoms experienced, the severity of dependence, and the types of substances that were being used.
Alcohol Detox in Decatur
Seizures, hallucinations, and severe confusion are among the most serious symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. Alcohol withdrawal can be a life-threatening situation for some and may require hospitalization. Alcohol detox helps patients safely withdraw from alcohol while facing a reduced risk of these and other complications.
During alcohol detox, patients are monitored closely for signs of complications and given medications that help them feel more comfortable and that reduce their symptoms. Sedatives may also be used to help stabilize patients and prevent seizures. Alcohol detox usually lasts between two to 10 days but may last longer for those with severe alcohol dependence.
Opioid Drug Detox in Decatur
Opioid withdrawal symptoms are often extremely uncomfortable but are not usually life-threatening. Dehydration may occur in those who lose fluids through sweating, vomiting, and diarrhea, though this can be prevented by drinking plenty of water. The main danger associated with opioid withdrawal is relapse and overdose due to strong drug cravings and the desire to avoid unpleasant symptoms, including insomnia and muscle pain.
Opioid detox may involve the use of various medications that treat specific symptoms or opioid-replacement medications that reduce all symptoms at once. The type of medications each patient receives depends on the severity of their symptoms and how they tolerate withdrawal.
Benzodiazepines produce withdrawal symptoms similar to those produced by alcohol, including seizures. Benzodiazepines should never be discontinued abruptly due to the risk of seizures and worsened insomnia and anxiety.
Benzodiazepine detox usually lasts for several weeks, as it involves gradually reducing a patient’s daily dosage week by week until they are no longer experiencing symptoms or dependent on the medication. This detox method is known as tapering and is highly effective at keeping withdrawal symptoms mild and to a minimum.
Suboxone withdrawal symptoms are the same as those produced by opioids, as Suboxone is an opioid itself and is often used as a replacement medication to treat opioid dependence. Suboxone dependence occurs when patients misuse this medication for recreational purposes.
Suboxone detox is performed using a tapering method, which involves slowly reducing a patient’s daily dosage over several weeks until they are no longer using the medication or experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Stimulants including cocaine and methamphetamine produce a variety of withdrawal symptoms, many of which are psychological. Agitation, anxiety, and paranoia are some of several psychological symptoms produced by stimulants that increase the risk for suicide, relapse, and overdose.
Crack/cocaine detox and methamphetamine detox treatments typically involve the use of anti-anxiety medications, sedatives, and antipsychotics that reduce psychological symptoms and stabilize the patient. Many patients recovering from stimulant addiction join a long-term rehab program after detox to receive behavioral therapy for their ongoing symptoms.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Near Decatur, IL
Rehab is the next phase of treatment after medication-assisted detox. Rehab uses a set of behavioral therapies to help patients modify harmful behaviors and thought processes that were fueling their addiction. We offer heroin rehab, opioid rehab, and many other drug and alcohol rehab programs customized for each patient based on their personal recovery needs.
Residential rehab offers the highest level of care and is recommended to all our patients from Decatur who want to focus completely on their recovery without having to worry about traveling to and from our facility. Residential rehab provides patients with several hours of therapy a day and helps them develop new daily routines that leave no time for drug and alcohol use. Patients are provided with nutritious meals, high-end appliances, and newly renovated rooms that make them feel right at home.
Residential rehab is ideal for patients who need a safe place to call home while in recovery and who need separation from distractions, negative influences, and drugs and alcohol. Patients are provided with 24-hour access to professional support and treatment and can spend their free time enjoying our facility’s amenities and many therapeutic activities.
Outpatient rehab includes many of the same therapies as residential rehab but takes place fewer hours a day on fewer days a week. Outpatient rehab is far less intensive and offers more flexibility to patients who want to go back to work or school or spend more time with their families while receiving daily or weekly treatment.
Therapies in outpatient rehab focus on helping patients cope with everyday triggers such as stress, anxiety, and people and places that remind them of drug and alcohol use. Outpatient rehab is ideal for highly motivated patients to stay sober and need no supervision as they navigate their lives outside of a treatment environment. We encourage all patients from Decatur who join our outpatient program to stay in a nearby sober living home, so they do not have to commute to and from our facility in Bloomington.
Our facility offers several behavioral therapies designed to help patients become more independent and confident as they make their way through recovery. Behavioral therapy helps patients identify and change negative behaviors and attitudes that were contributing to their addiction. It also helps patients identify and address the reasons they started using drugs and alcohol in the first place, such as using opioids out of boredom to enjoy the pleasurable effects of using alcohol to numb chronic pain.
Dual diagnosis therapy is commonly used in our rehab programs, as it helps patients cope and manage symptoms of mental illness without relying on drugs and alcohol. Half of all people who suffer from substance use disorders also have a mental illness. Family therapy is another therapy used in many rehab programs, as it helps patients rebuild and improve relationships with loved ones who were also affected by their addiction.
Each patient receives their own set of behavioral therapies based on the reasons they started using and on the specific treatments they need to become healthier, happier, and more productive individuals.
