What to Know About Detox

There are many common symptoms that can accompany the chemical detoxing process.
When dealing with a loved one who is battling a chemical addiction; there are safe and healthy ways to support them through the detox process.

Most substance abuse detoxification can be extremely difficult due to the excruciating withdrawal symptoms. Utilizing the services of a professionally trained staff and treatment facility is highly recommended. The physical and psychological risks of detoxing at home are dangerous to you and your loved one.

There are many common symptoms that can accompany the chemical detoxing process. Those can include obsessive thoughts of using. At the point of the detoxification, any prior decision to give up their drug of choice may have disappeared and all the addict may be thinking about of is flight. A staff experienced in all phases of the detox process can help the recovering addict through this and the other challenges of cleansing their body. During their body’s detoxification, the patient may experience insomnia, accompanied by pain and muscle aches. There may be a loss of appetite and vomiting, along with chills and excessive sweating. Any or all of these symptoms can bring about irritability, anxiety and confusion in the recovering addict.

It is imperative that the addict receives professional medical attention throughout this process. Quitting certain drugs without medical supervision can be dangerous and may even be life threatening. With a trained and experienced staff available through your chosen treatment center, the addict can receive the help, strength and immediate medical attention they may need to handle any serious withdrawal symptoms. Whether dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, tremors, seizures, and hallucination or rapid heartbeat, a team of trained medical professionals can provide the expert care necessary to make this transition as easy and short as possible.

Most facilities prohibit communication to and from the patient during the initial drug detox. This is by far the most fragile stage of the process. It can be an overwhelming and emotional process and limiting outside influences can help reduce stress and concerns during this period of recovery. It is helpful if the family members or loved ones of the addict are educated about the drug detox process. Understanding the complexities of the care your recovering addict is receiving and the further steps and processes entailed in their ongoing recovery will allow you to better support them in their healthy endeavors.

After detox, the process of understanding the underlying issues for substance abuse will begin. With a team of caring and experienced counselors and support teams, your loved one can begin the road back to recovery and their life of sobriety.
