A detox facility is an addiction treatment center that is staffed with medical professionals, such as doctors, a full clinical staff, and nurses that are trained to help clients deal with the unpleasant effects of withdrawals. Without the proper medical supervision, withdrawal symptoms are extremely unpleasant, dangerous, and in some cases life-threatening. A medical detox is highly recommended in order to start the recovery process successfully.
During a detox treatment program the individual will go through a physical withdrawal from the substances that were being abused. Symptoms vary depending on what drugs are being abused, the amount, and how long the drug abuse has been taking place. The most common substances that require a medical detox are alcohol, prescription opiates, prescription benzodiazepine, heroin, methadone, and a few others.
For prescription opiates, heroin, and methadone the detox process includes being tapered down from the harmful substance. The taper includes replacing the addictive drugs with a custom medication plan specific to the client’s individual needs. At Daylight Detox, we also provide Medically Assisted Treatment and Therapy that can be beneficial to those who are constantly struggling with relapse.
The detox period is a fragile time because the individual will be experiencing extremely intense feelings of discomfort. The detox is draining emotionally as well as physically. At Daylight Detox and Recovery Center we believe in treating all aspects of the individual- mind, body and soul. During the detox, not only will the individual have medical care, but also therapy to manage the unstable emotions that come from the withdrawal process.
