Drug rehab center medical detox

Stopping the use of an addictive drug.

When an individual stops using drugs, physical and mental discomforts appear, depending of the drug of choice. To ease such withdrawal symptoms different methods are used.

Certain drug rehab centers include the detox treatment in their program, but occasionally, you need to complete a medical detox before going into a drug rehab program.

MEDICAL DETOX:

Medical: Requiring treatment by medicine.

A medical detox is done in a hospital or a detox clinic. Tranquilizers or other medication can be administered to the individual on withdrawal.

For instance, an alcoholic who drank alcohol for many years and who have experienced seizures will require treatment by medicine if he stops using alcohol. If not, he can experience seizures again, and that can be extremely hazardous. During his withdrawal, he will be administered medication to prevent seizures. However, not all individuals with an alcohol addiction need a medical detox. Whether a medical detox is needed or not should be determined by a physician.

 

Others drugs also create severe withdrawal symptoms that require medical support such as heavy use of painkillers or antidepressive medication or heroin.

There are several private medical detoxes. Almost all of these detoxes provide medical treatment and use drug substitute to ease the withdrawal symptoms.

NON-MEDICAL DETOX:

In many cases, a good withdrawal program in a safe environment, good care and professional supervision can be sufficient. I saw individuals withdrawing from heroin in such environment without experiencing pain or heavy mental discomfort, without the use of ANY drug substitute.

Occasionally, alternative techniques are utilized to ease withdrawal symptoms without the use of any drug substitute.

 

Depending of the drug of choice and the severity of your addiction you will choose a medical or a non-medical detox center.
