Detox Treatment Rehab Waco assists addicts in making their first step toward rehabilitation from substance addiction, utilizing safe, overseen medical centers, and a custom-designed detox procedure. Detoxification, also known as detox, is a process where the drugs and pollutants are cleansed from the body. Detox by itself is not recovery. Each person will have different detoxification needs, and in some cases, the ‘cold turkey’ method is not feasible. Because detox needs are different for each addiction, and it would be unhealthy and unwise to use the ‘cold turkey’ method in many cases, Texas Detox Centers uses safe and medically confirmed methods that provide a custom-made experience for every client. For concerns or questions, or to talk with a detox expert, call Better Addiction Treatment Rehab at 254-272-3179 immediately!

Varieties of Detox

Medically overseen withdrawal and social detoxification are the two kinds of detox used most often in detox centers. Medical professionals decide whether to use medically supervised or social detoxification methods depending upon:

  • The type of drug being used
  • Duration of abuse
  • Age of the client
  • The mental state of the patient
  • Physical health and well-being of the patient
  • What sort of setting the experts think will be most useful to the client

Patients who benefit the most from medically overseen detox include people who have been addicted to:

  • Alcohol
  • Pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
  • Barbiturates or sedatives
  • Opioids (heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, methadone)

The particularly unpleasant, painful withdrawal symptoms of these drugs are lessened by some detox medications that can only be prescribed by a doctor. It is recommended that individuals who abuse drugs along with alcohol, or who are severely alcoholic undergo medically overseen withdrawal. Medically overseen withdrawal centers use medications to prevent dangerous health conditions that can occur during withdrawal, like hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and psychological issues that may arise from stopping ‘cold turkey’ from alcohol, and other substances. Additionally, anyone who has experienced hallucinations or seizures, or has a serious illness, or who has been diagnosed with psychological illnesses must undergo medically overseen detoxification to safely wean themselves from drugs or alcohol.

Social detoxification is more successful for patients withdrawing from drugs that cause mild withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Infrequent opioid use
  • Occasional alcohol use

The social detoxification method seeks to assist clients to work through their cravings and enables withdrawal without medication; however, the process is still monitored by medical professionals and therapists who monitor the patient’s health. Social detoxification is a “social” experience; which means clients are not separated from each other in hospital rooms but live with each other as they go through the detoxification period. This type of detox readies clients for a treatment program where they will live and work with other people in recovery.

Better Addiction Treatment Rehab’s Techniques

Detoxification Treatment Center Waco, TX knows that different types of substances are responsible for many withdrawal symptoms. It is critical to gradually reduce the amounts of depressants (such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol) because the withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Hallucinations
  • Tremors
  • Seizures
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate
  • Higher body temperature

Stimulants (for instance, amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, and Ritalin) do not generally require more than emotional support from friends, family members, and therapists. When necessary, doctors may recommend medicines to prevent stimulant psychosis, which can result in:

  • Suicidal emotions
  • Suicide attempts
  • Paranoid thoughts
  • Psychosis

Withdrawal symptoms from opioids (such as heroin, oxycodone, methadone, morphine, codeine, and hydrocodone) can consist of:

  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Quickening pulse
  • Quickening breathing
  • Bone pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Taking the First Step

In some cases, detox is a critical first step, however, it is ONLY a first step, and should never take the place of a recovery program. Unlike other treatment programs, Detoxification Rehabilitation offers guidance during and after the detoxification process because we take into consideration the ease of relapsing right after getting sober. Detox centers rehabilitation utilizes detox in combination with recovery treatment as well as other drug and alcohol treatment strategies making detox is a critical first step. Sobriety is possible, in some circumstances, is a critical beginning to the recovery process when followed by a reputable treatment program, like Alcohol Addiction Recovery Programs.
