Private Drug Detoxification: The Basics
Drug detoxification, or detox, occurs automatically when you stop taking the drug or drugs of addiction. Used to the regular replenishment of the drugs in your bloodstream, it begins the process of detox when that drug is no longer present or present in smaller doses than you are used to. As your body rids itself of the drug built up in your system and re-adjusts to functioning without it, this detox manifests itself physically as withdrawal symptoms. You will feel ill with a variety of symptoms that will vary depending upon the drug or drugs you are addicted to, the dose you are at when you stop taking them, and the length of time you have been maintaining an addiction to these drugs.
Detox is the first step in drug addiction treatment at a private drug detoxification program like Orchid Recovery Center. The attention to your physical well-being is where the process of healing begins and with the attendance of medical professionals who specialize in drug addiction treatment, we can help you minimize your withdrawal symptoms and shorten the detox process as much as possible.
How Private Drug Detoxification is Different From Drug Addiction Treatment
Though you will attend to your physical health throughout your entire stay at Orchid Recovery Center, the private drug detoxification process is focused almost exclusively on physical healing. You may be admitted to a clinic or enjoy the constant attention of medical professionals to make sure that you are stable and that your withdrawal symptoms are as quick and painless as possible. This process may take a few days or as long as a week, but when it is done, you will feel more up to turning your attention to your spiritual, emotional and mental health while you continue to regain your physical endurance and strength and learn new relaxation and lifestyle skills.
Characteristics of Private Drug Detoxification at Orchid Recovery Center
Private drug detoxification at Orchid Recovery Center consists of a sequential process that can be broken down into three parts. First, you will undergo an evaluation when you first come to stay with us at Orchid Recovery Center. We will make sure that you are physically stable and in no immediate medical threat; if necessary, you will be taken to the hospital until you are well enough to return to us. Next, you will undergo a psychological evaluation and medical exam to ascertain co-occurring conditions and the substances that are currently in your system. This will help us develop an initial treatment plan before you begin the next step.
Stabilization is our next order of business in a private drug detoxification at Orchid Recovery Center. As you detox, we want to make sure that you are medically stable and remain as comfortable as possible. You will most likely just need to sleep until the negative effects pass but if you need medication to treat other physical symptoms, these will be made available to you on an as-needed basis. Part of this component is making sure that you have all your questions answered and know what to expect every step of the way.
