Rapid Detox Centers
Anyone who has ever suffered from an opiate addiction knows the fear of withdrawal. It is one of the main reasons an addict will resist treatment. The fear of this detoxification process is no less harmful to the addict than the actual addiction itself. Most addicts will delay seeking treatment thinking they can manage these symptoms alone. They go through one denial after another, continuing in desperation, to hope that they can relieve the withdrawal effects by adjusting their usage quantity or frequency. These self medication techniques typically, mean time is lost and time for the dependency develops further. To no avail, this leads to desperation until the addict finally realizes that they just can’t do it alone. An addict’s fear of withdrawal can be overwhelming. Often, any commitment to recovery is short lived and unless the toxins are cleared from the body, the treatment programs will have no value. Rapid Detox Centers provide the fast alternative for accomplishing this process safely, in a shorter time frame, alleviating the addict’s suffering through medications aimed at inducing unawareness and unconsciousness during the process.
For those individuals who fear the withdrawal process, this alternative can be very helpful. Physical dependence develops over time and most addicts know that these withdrawal symptoms can last an indeterminate amount of time depending on their addiction, frequency, and amounts of usage. Detoxification from an opioid dependency can be unpredictable but, without it, recovery cannot happen. Traditionally, the detox process will include a medical monitoring and management of these symptoms but, that may not be enough for some addicts who look are looking for the magic pill or quick fix to end their suffering. Rapid Detox Centers make the detox process a little easier by inducing sleep through anesthesia medications with other medications administered to rapidly clear toxins from the body. This ability to speed up the detox process ranges from 4 hours to 48 hours and depends on the type of drug abused as well as the duration of use and amounts. The process may be controversial in that the relapse rate is thought to be higher by some studies because of the lack of remembrance regarding the adverse withdrawal symptoms. This lack of remembrance may reduce future inhibitions to experience the symptoms associated with withdrawal. The process requires a strict evaluation of the addict’s health prior to administering and some individuals may not qualify for the treatment due to possible health complications.
Medical Detox Centers
The goal of a Medical Detox Center is to make sure the addict rids their bodies of the abused chemicals in a safe, medically supervised way. This may entail the use of other medications to keep the addict physically stable and more comfortable through the withdrawal process. Only after clearing the toxins from the body, can the addict truly gain focus on their intent for full recovery. The most commonly recognized physical symptoms of withdrawal include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, irritability, confusion, headaches, and fatigue. Psychiatric withdrawals may also include psychosis and hallucinations. For these reasons, it is critically important that this process never be attempted alone. The detox process must be accomplished before the addict can begin addiction treatment programs such as counseling and therapy. The physical and psychiatric adjustment that the addict goes through is assessed and evaluated through every step. Medical Detox Centers provide a safe way to begin what is often one of the hardest things an individual will ever have to do. When the addict realizes that their only hope is this process, the commitment to recovery can be shared between the addict and the medical personnel throughout this process.
