Addiction Treatment Phases
How Medical Detox Works
If you are suffering from substance abuse in the Riverview, FL area and need help, medical detox is the first step you want to take. Detoxification involves the body being cleansed from all of the substances you have been abusing, it is vital to do this under the supervision of a team of licensed medical professionals. Medical Detox is necessary if :
- You have been using a substance over a long period of time
- Used large amounts of a substance at a time
- Experience intense cravings when you don’t have the substance
- Have tried to quit and failed multiple times
- Your tolerance for a substance keeps raising
If any of these apply to you then you are nearly guaranteed to experience withdrawals that can range from uncomfortable to deadly. Withdrawals begin to occur usually when the body has been without your substance of choice for 24 hours, this is the primary reason anyone should detox in a medical setting. Our nursing team and doctors ensure they do everything they can medically and psychologically to make sure your experience in detox is as smooth as possible.
24/7 supervision means if you are experiencing any discomfort physically or mentally, we have everything you could possibly need to address your issues.
Individualized Drug and Alcohol Detox Treatment
We understand no two paths are the same and everyone has their own experience coming off drugs. Here are drugs that require our medically assisted detox in the Riverview, FL area.
Detox from alcohol can be not only mentally exhausting but physically too. Heavy alcohol consumption can interfere with the brain's natural functions and your central nervous system. Your brain can become dependent on alcohol to produce important chemicals in your brain, so when you stop drinking, your CNS gets completely disoriented and you are in vital need of medical supervision. Severe alcohol withdrawal can result in death, this is not an exaggeration. Do not try to detox off alcohol at home.
Known as ‘benzos’ for short, benzodiazepines are anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax, Klonopin, and Atvian. They have similar effects as alcohol on the body and detoxing from them at home can also be fatal.
Drugs like cocaine, crack and methamphetamine or any other ‘uppers’ are not as physically threatening as most other drugs in the withdrawal stage but the side effects can include similar effects to severe depression.
Basically, opioids are prescription painkillers. Opiates are direct derivatives from the poppy plant such as heroin. They can mimic endorphins that your brain naturally uses to generally feel good and that’s why it kills the pain. Opioid abuse will shut down endorphin production in your brain and your body will rely on the medications to produce it. Once someone is dependent and they stop using opiates/opioids, the body will enter withdrawal which feels like having a very serious flu. It is extremely uncomfortable and can be helped greatly by medical detox supervision.
