Withdrawal and Detoxification
Withdrawal and detox are two vital components for any treatment for substance abuse. A person cannot get the help they need in an inpatient treatment program or any other program until they have completely rid their bodies of the chemical agents they have grown dependent to. This can be a very painful and intense process for anyone who has had an addiction. It can be physically and psychologically taxing. A Better Today empathizes with this reality and offers a medically assisted detoxification process in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms so that you can stop letting drugs control every fiber of you being.
The Reality of Withdrawal
Withdrawal symptoms occur when a person abruptly ceases ingesting substances they have developed a dependency to. The symptoms vary depending on the specific substances, the length of time, the amount, and the frequency of use. Alcohol and benzodiazepines are the only two drugs that one could die during withdrawal. The body can go into shock causing seizures. Opiates such as heroin and opioids such as Oxy Contin have the most uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Because of the physical dependence involved with the use of these drugs, the body can experience excruciating pain among other symptoms.
The Relief of Detox
A Better Today uses a medically facilitated detox process that replaces abused substances with agents of similar chemical compounds. These medications are distributed decreasingly within a certain amount of time. This allows a person to completely be abstinent of all drugs while alleviating intense symptoms of withdrawal. It is often very difficult for a person to cease substance abuse because of the withdrawal symptoms. That is why the tapering process is effective. It allows a person to achieve the same goal in a reasonable amount of time without being tempted to suffice their current addictions in an unhealthy manner.
