Archstone Behavioral Health

Medical Detox Program

Detoxing can often be one of the most intimidating and overwhelming steps in the recovery process. Many patients want to get clean but can’t get around the fear of detoxification. They are afraid of the withdrawals, and other uncomfortable symptoms that come as the substances leave your body.  

Detox is usually the first step in the recovery program, especially for alcohol or benzos, as non-medical detoxes can result in death from these substances when not managed properlyProlonged use of drugs or alcohol can lead to a body’s dependence on these substances, and quitting “cold-turkey” can be damaging to our patients’ health. 

Upon entry to Archstone Behavioral Health’s treatment program, our team of highly trained, board-certified physicians and therapists evaluate our patients for stabilization and detoxification. We provide personalized care for each individual and help each patient through the discomfort of substance or alcohol addiction.

Why Inpatient Detox Programs are Important 

At Archstone Recovery Behavioral Health, treatment is performed in an inpatient setting, monitored by a large team of medical professionals. Our top priority is the safety and recovery of our patients. Sometimes, symptoms associated with detoxification can include hallucinations, seizures, or other dangerous conditions. In a supervised medical detox, patients receive pharmaceuticals to reduce these withdrawal symptoms and relieve some pain associated with withdrawal.

Detoxing from Alcohol 

Once you have become addicted to alcohol, trying to completely stop drinking or drastically reducing the amount you drink will cause withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on how much alcohol you consumed and for how long you have been dependent on it. Symptoms can include anxiety, headaches, nausea, tremors, hallucinations, vomiting, insomnia, and seizures.

Detoxing from Opioids 

Opioids are highly addictive, and those that become addicted face a painful and severe withdrawal. Symptoms of withdrawal from opiates can last for weeks or even months. Those symptoms can include nausea and vomiting, drug cravings, weakness, insomnia, depression, muscle, joint and bone pain, stomach pain, and restless leg syndrome.

 

Detoxing from Benzodiazepines  

Benzodiazepines are typically prescribed to treat anxiety, insomnia, and seizures. People begin to build a tolerance for these drugs and must take more to feel the same effects, leading to dependency and addiction. When someone has become reliant on benzodiazepines, withdrawal symptoms can appear as soon as a few hours after their last dose.

Detoxing from Stimulants  

Common stimulants include ADHD medications, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Stimulants affect the central nervous system and increase the neurotransmitters throughout the brain, which causes heightened levels of energy and better focus. Prolonged use will cause the brain to become reliant on the presence of stimulants, or uppers.

Archstone Behavioral Health tailors recovery plans based on the individualized needs of each patient. We will work with you to find the best withdrawal management plan to suit your needs. Our well-trained staff can be on hand 24-hours a day to accompany our patients through the discomfort of the detoxification process. Taking into account the substance that was abused, how long it was abused, medical history, and the withdrawal symptoms patients are experiencing, we will discover the best course for withdrawal management.
