Medical Detoxification

Drug and alcohol use is known to cause more than just a psychological need to continue to abuse them. When a person uses addictive substances, they gradually develop a tolerance as their body grows accustomed to the chemicals.

Someone with a higher tolerance begins to need more of the substance to maintain the same effects, creating a cycle of addiction. Eventually, when a person suddenly stops using it, they will experience withdrawal symptoms because their body now relies on the substance to function.

Withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on the severity of addiction and the substances used, but in some cases, they can lead to severe illness and even death. Because withdrawal symptoms can be so dangerous, medical assistance is critical to the health and well-being of a person who is trying to recover.

Someone trying to quit drug use on their own might not know how to monitor their health and medicate themselves for specific symptoms appropriately. If they attempt to use drugs again after several days of detox, they have a much higher risk of overdose because they have significantly decreased their tolerance.

Offering Treatment in Laguna Beach, Palm Spring, St. Augustine and many other scenic locations, Our Veterans Rehab detox facilities not only treats symptoms of withdrawal, but also minimizes the dangers of relapsing.

What is Medical Detox?

Detoxification is the first step in treating those who are dependent on drugs or alcohol. It is used to excise the chemicals in the body and manage the symptoms of withdrawal. Detox is done as a set of interventions that, over time, will help to manage acute withdrawal. By being under medical supervision during this period, patients can prevent the possibility of dangerous complications that could occur.

Before the 1970s, alcohol and drug detox was practically non-existent. Intoxication was considered a criminal offense, and those who were arrested were put in ‘drunk tanks.’ These were normal jail cells where the guilty party would go through withdrawal with no medical assistance. Often this placed them in a life-threatening situation. Since then, the perception of substance abuse has changed, and now medical detox centers and Rehabs are provided for those who have an alcohol or drug addiction.

3 Components of Detox

Evaluation

This is the first step of entering a treatment program; it identifies if any substances are in the body and how much has been used. It evaluates for co-occurring physical or mental health disorders and assesses the patient’s social, medical, and psychological condition. Doing this helps to determine the best form of long term substance abuse treatment.

Stabilization

This second step of the process involves assisting the patient through treatment and maintaining medical stability. This step also includes explaining to patients what they will experience while going through withdrawal and later in residential treatment. Clinicians also look to the patient’s family, close friends, or loved ones for help during this process..

Treatment Preparation

This step prepares the patient for entering treatment after detox is complete. Studies show that those who complete detox but don’t participate in continuing treatment are more likely to relapse. Encouraging patients to enter an inpatient program after detox can help them to understand that detox is only one step in the road towards recovery.
