Detox can be challenging, but it’s a necessary step in starting a better life through recovery. Detoxification is a cleansing process through which the toxins that have accumulated in the body from substance abuse are safely removed. The other important elements of rehabilitation, such as counseling, only work if the drugs are out of the system.Call American Addiction Centers today at 800-890-1956 and break addiction’s grip.
At times, drug detox will be unpleasant… but it’s worth it.
If you or a loved one needs detox and rehabilitation, contact us today to speak with one of our caring and experienced Treatment Consultants. We can answer any questions regarding the information on this site, and work with you to develop individualized plans for treatment provided by American Addiction Centers.
Our drug detox programs include:
- 24-hour medical supervision
- Individualized treatment plans
- Physicians certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (A.S.A.M.)
- The complete removal of drug residuals. Without this step, drug residuals can stay in your body and cause cravings for years after drug use has ceased.
How long does drug detox take?
The length of drug detox is based on the intensity and history of the addiction; an individual’s physical makeup; and the specific drug(s) being cleansed from the body. The average program lasts anywhere from 5-7 days.
We can provide you with various types of detox, including:
- Alcohol Treatment Detox Programs: Alcohol detox may include symptoms such as sweats, nausea, vomiting or tremors, with the possibility of convulsions or seizures. Thankfully, we offer medications that will minimize, and in some cases even cases eliminate, withdrawal symptoms. Our residential detox programs offer the added benefits of therapy sessions and group interaction.
- Cocaine and Crack Detox: The psychological pull of these drugs is just as much a hurdle as the physical cravings. Detox may include symptoms such as anxiety, depression, angry outbursts and disturbed sleep. During detox, other drugs may be safely administered to reduce these symptoms.
- Heroin and Opiate Detox: Intense, flu-like symptoms are often the side effects of kicking a heroin/opiate habit. These include running nose, watery eyes and vomiting. Drugs such as Suboxone may be safely administered to ease the detox process. Medical supervision is important, as self-performed heroin detox doesn’t work.
- Marijuana Detox: Marijuana can be very psychologically addictive. For a period of three to five days, users may experience intense drug cravings. Certain medications may be safely administered to provide relief through the withdrawal period.
- Ecstasy and Club Drug Detox: Primarily psychiatric in nature, detox from ecstasy and other club drugs may include symptoms such as depression, sleeping disorders and difficulty concentrating. Ecstasy detox may also be affected by the fact that street-level ecstasy is frequently diluted with other stimulants of which the user was not aware -stimulants with their own withdrawal symptoms.
- Crystal Meth Detox: Withdrawal symptoms are intense and, for the most part, psychological. Symptoms, which include fatigue, severe depression, suicidal thoughts and paranoia, peak within a day and then generally subside.
