Drug detox can be a very scary thing especially if you are a heavy or frequent user. It can take an excruciating toll on both your mental and physical well being, but in the end it’s easier than what continued drug use means. Admitting that help is needed is perhaps the hardest step.
The first step has been taken by simply looking for information on the detoxification process. The second step is to visit a rehabilitative or medical center that will help you, or a loved one, get through the detox process as smoothly as possible. Talk with the people that will help everyone get through this rough time and work out the best individualized program.
Everyone is Equal
One of the biggest problems, those seeking drug detox encounter, is their fear of being judged. True professionals realize that this is a person seeking help, not a stereotype. No one is judged on the basis of their addiction. Addiction is a serious medical condition and we treat it as such. Each patient is a person, not a statistic.
It’s Never Easy
Long term addiction can make withdrawal difficult for the strongest of people, but there is help out there. There are people who been through it and those who are trained to help. They have helped hundreds of others dealing with similar situations by offering support and understanding through the entire process.
Symptoms of withdrawal can include elevated heart rate, hallucinations, and even seizures. Each person handles drug detox differently and there is no way to accurately predict how each person will react. There are a variety of factors that will affect the drug detox process including the type of drugs used, frequency of use, diet and health. Experienced professionals are there to guide the patient through each stage of withdrawal, adjusting medication, food and counseling as required.
The symptoms of withdrawal can last for several days, with many patients not experiencing any acute discomfort until two or three days into it. It is at that stage when you need help the most and we are there for you.
