Drug and Alcohol Detox Detox is the process of getting your body rid of toxins that have accumulated through drug use. The only way to accomplish this process effectively is by complete and immediate cessation of the use of the drug or the substance involved. The body almost always reacts to the lack of the drug by presenting sickness like symptoms. This is known as withdrawal. To determine the appropriate detox procedure and process, a thorough physical and mental assessment is needed. An addiction counselor or a medical professional with experience in addiction treatment will compile your medical and social history that is of great importance in the determination of the detox process. Detox treatment varies and may require hospitalization, depending on the client's current physical and mental condition. Determining factors include among others, the quantity of drugs or alcohol that one is using, the length of time that the individual has been abusing these substances, and the combination of the drugs used. Pre-existing medical conditions are also relevant in the determination of the type of detox.

Alcohol Detox

Alcohol Detox is the most trying aspect of the entire alcohol addiction treatment program and can be agonizing and unpleasant for many individuals due to the total abstinence from alcohol that is required and the withdrawal symptoms that follow. We at A Center for Addiction Recovery use a combination of behavioral and alternative therapies as well as pharmacotherapy to minimize the symptoms of withdrawal. The duration of the detoxification period depends upon the duration of the withdrawal symptoms. Usually it lasts from 2 to 8 days.

Opiate Detox

Opiate Detox at A Center for Addiction Recovery is also treated with a combination of behavioral and alternative therapies as well as pharmacotherapy. Behavioral treatments help patients engage in the treatment process, modifying their attitudes and behaviors related to drug abuse, and increasing their healthy life skills. Behavioral and Alternative addiction treatments can also enhance the effectiveness of medications and help individuals stay in treatment longer.

Patients addicted to opiate prescription medications such as Oxycontin, Vicodin, Lortab, and others, as well as those addicted to illegal opiates such as heroin, benefit from the FDA approved medications such as Suboxone and Subutex (Buprenorphine) that assist in the withdrawal related to opiate detox. These new detox treatments have greatly advanced the total success rate and the effectiveness of drug detox in general.
