The Detoxification Process in Rehab
The purpose of the detoxification process is to tackle the physical side of addiction to prepare you for the psychological healing you need to overcome your drug and alcohol addiction.
Detoxing is when you rid the body of drugs and alcohol. When the substances are reduced and removed from the body, there is a sudden drop in the chemicals that your brain has come to rely on, and the brain must adjust. This causes unpleasant symptoms known as withdrawal symptoms.
In a rehabilitation centre, you will be assisted by medical professionals who will keep you comfortable and minimize the withdrawal symptoms. They aim to keep you as safe as possible.
There are a number of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that come with detoxing.
Some psychological withdrawal symptoms may include:
- Mood swings
Some physical withdrawal symptoms include:
- Increased heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
It is common for medications to be used in the detoxification process to prevent some of the symptoms and to keep you comfortable. However, there is no specific medication that prevents all symptoms. Medical professionals may provide medications to ease depression and anxiety. They may also give medications to help you sleep and may give some to counteract different symptoms.
Each person going through detox will be fully supported and carefully monitored throughout the process with compassionate care. The support and compassion you will receive are just as important as any medication used.
The detoxification process can last between 7 to 10 days but this differs depending on a few different factors. Your duration in detox can depend on the severity of your withdrawal symptoms, how severe your addiction is, and the number of drugs and alcohol you have consumed.
What is a Dual Diagnosis?
Many addicts suffer from mental health problems alongside their addiction. These may be problems that existed before the addiction, problems that caused the addiction, or problems that occurred because of the addiction.
When someone receives a dual diagnosis for mental health problems and their addiction, they will usually be treated for both in rehab. Their treatment plan will include activities and sessions that help with their mental health problems as well as treatments that help to find the causes of the addiction, prevent relapsing, and help you get back to good health.
If you believe that you have mental health problems along with your addiction, our team here at Rehab Clinics Group are trained to work with you to get through these problems and help you get back to good physical and mental health.
Is it safe to detox at home?It may be tempting to detox at home. However, it can be very dangerous and is not recommended. Without full support, around the clock care from medical professionals, and the help from medications, it can be an extremely unpleasant and painful experience. Detoxing without full support from a detox clinic can in some cases be fatal. There are some withdrawal symptoms that can be very serious and if untreated, can lead to complications.
Does rehab work?Yes, rehab really does work for those who are fully committed. Recovery is a very serious decision and for it to work you must really want to get better. Rehab will only work for you if you are committed to your recovery and stick to your treatment plan.
How beneficial is residential rehab?Residential rehab is very beneficial for those looking to recover from their addictions. A residential rehab provides you with a safe place to recover where you are surrounded by well-trained staff who are there to help and support you every step of the way. You will also be surrounded by other addicts who can become close friends and who share your experiences with you. A major benefit of residential rehab is that you’re away from your usual environment and your usual triggers. This can make it much easier for you to recover.
