Generally, detoxification is a difficult process followed by critical withdrawal symptoms and emotional disturbances, including visual hallucinations, vomiting, nausea, sleep disorders, psychological disorders, cravings, mood swings and other health-related effects. How severe the withdrawal symptoms are mostly depends on what kind of drug/substance was being consumed, and the mental and physical capacity of the patient.
Each detoxification treatment plan, therefore, is designed according to the conditions of the patient. It is determined whether the patient suffers from any physical and psychological ailments other than the abuse, or those caused by the abuse. As mentioned above, the intensity of detoxification results vary and require the support and constant supervision of a trained medical professional.
It is always recommended to undergo detoxification at a professional rehab center for the following reasons:
At rehab centers there is a constant evaluation and monitoring of the treatment that is being given to the patient. Any medical or mental changes are effectively addressed.
To relapse is common. At rehab centers the chances of reverting are reduced, as each patient is constantly encouraged by the overall environment of the center, motivating them at every nook and corner. It prevents them from the isolation that is the fundamental cause of relapsing
Constant access to medical services and supervision. Any disorders or complications are immediately addressed.
They offer psychological and behavioral treatment, along with the detoxification process. Detoxification in itself is painful and stressful and requires a source of comfort additional to medicine and diet. Psychological treatment, counseling and motivational talks by professionals provide a support to go through the detoxification process.
At rehabilitation centers each patient learns different skills that keep them busy and motivated towards a better present and future. The skills can be both career-oriented and psychological. Generally, skills that are helpful in coping with stressful situations are learned at rehab centers. It helps them promote a healthy lifestyle that is more positive than the life they had earlier.
Self-detox is more painful both psychologically and mentally and is never recommended by medical professionals. The withdrawal symptoms can get intense and are often not well addressed privately. Therefore, detoxification is a process that should be undertaken under strict professional care at clinics or rehab centers.
