Professional Drug Detox Services
When you are physically addicted to a drug or a combination of drugs and alcohol, it is important that you not try and go “cold turkey” on your own. Long-term addiction changes the way your body and brain works on a functional level, increasing the production of some chemicals and eliminating others. To suddenly deprive your body of an addictive drug can send you into detox, characterized by painful withdrawal symptoms. In order to safely break your addiction to your drug of choice, it’s important that you have medical supervision at a professional drug detox service.
Orchid Recovery Center provides professional drug detox services for those addicted to prescription drugs, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and any combination thereof. Detox may last three to seven days depending upon the severity of your condition and from there, you can transition smoothly into treatment.
The Need for Professional Drug Detox Services
The need for the kind of effective detox that only a professional drug detox service can provide is evidenced in the costs, health problems and deaths that occur in the wake of addiction. The Journal of the American Medical Association states that more than 105,000 patients each year die from prescription drugs even though they were taken as prescribed. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies estimates that $3.5 billion is spent annually on hospital costs and emergency room visits due to drug overdoses and related health problems. The American Medical Association reports that almost 200,000 people die from drug overdose or drug-related issues each year and almost 9 million are hospitalized for the same reason, accounting for more than a quarter of all hospital admissions.
Without professional drug detox services like the ones offered by Orchid Recovery Center, these numbers will continue to rise.
The Goal of Professional Drug Detox Services
The primary goal of professional drug detox services is not only to help you flush the drugs and toxins out of your system but to do so in a way that is efficient and safe, avoiding complications with other co-occurring disorders and keeping your discomfort to a minimum. The first three to seven days of detox are the most difficult, physically and emotionally. Without support, few can make it through alone without relapsing. Once the heaviest symptoms have passed, you will still need to attend to your physical wellbeing as some toxins will remain in the body for months. At Orchid Recovery Center, your initial phase of treatment will focus on the harshest parts of detox on an as-needed basis and throughout your treatment, we will continue to take special care of your health with organic food, yoga, body work and gentle exercise.
After Professional Drug Detox Services
Though you will feel 100 times better after the most significant withdrawal symptoms have passed, no one can completely detox the drugs out of their system in just a week. That is why Orchid Recovery Center makes sure to offer a number of body work therapeutic options like acupuncture and massage to help you continue the process during your treatment. Every woman who comes to stay with us will have a different treatment plan depending upon her comfort level, state of physical health and the presence of co-occurring disorders but almost all will be encouraged to indulge in yoga and meditation as well as the bodywork options to continue to release the toxins trapped in muscle and organ tissue throughout her stay.
