Quitting drinking can be extremely difficult. Many people try to quit, only to be confronted with severe and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Others are simply unable to stop due to the compulsive cravings and find that continuing to drink keeps them stable. However, continuing to drink once a dependence is formed only worsens the issue. The easiest and most effective way to quit drinking is to enter a treatment program for alcohol. Our program is second to none. Call us today.
Before starting on your own personal journey to recovery, you first need to clear your body of any and all addictive substances. Detoxification is a procedure that helps remove toxins and harmful substances from the body.
When it comes to substance use disorders, detox refers to how long it takes your body to process and metabolize any remaining drugs or alcohol in your system. The time required to completely detox depends on many factors such as how long you have been drinking or doing drugs, how much you have been using, when was the last dose taken and how many times have you tried to get sober in the past.
Medically Supervised Detox
The detoxification process results in various withdrawal symptoms, and depending on how severe they are, medically supervised detox is the safest option. While you can suddenly stop using, or quit cold-turkey on your own, this could result in unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as chills, headaches, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, depression, or difficulty sleeping.
It can be an uncomfortable experience both mentally and physical as your body and mind go through withdrawal. Depending on the substance used, how much you used and how long you’ve used, detox can take anywhere from a few days to two weeks.
Detox with medical intervention provides continual monitoring to quickly address any withdrawal problems as they occur.
Best Drug & Alcohol Detox
Successfully detoxing from substance use disorder is an important and essential step of the recovery process. Medically supervised detox is recommended to help manage any possible withdrawal symptoms as they occur.
However; detox alone is not a cure for addiction. You should follow-up with a residential treatment program to help you discover and discuss the underlying causes of your addiction.
