Drug Detoxification Process


Drug detox and withdrawal procedures are the essential primary stages in outlining a patient's drug treatment programme. Having some time without drug use is significant in bringing addicts to a balanced state of mind because the effects of drugs on the brain usually justify the further use and alter otherwise rational thoughts.

An addict is given a chance during detoxification to empty his/her head and consider future treatment plans. The principle behind this is to nudge the person into recognizing that they have an addiction and to increase the use of the drug as well.


According to TIP 45 of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), substance detoxification is a favourable opportunity for a person who suffers medical and personal calamities to think about additional treatment.


Demystifying Detoxification

SAMHSA defines detoxification as a series of interventions that are structured in order to manage the symptoms that arise from withdrawal of the drug as well as acute or minor intoxication. Detox is separate from substance abuse treatment; it is a forerunner for it. Sometimes it may end up in a few days, but for others, detox may take a few months to end up. With the help of detoxification specialists at Futures of Palm Beach, you can successfully treat your withdrawal symptoms and get yourself into a treatment plan that is individually designed with you in mind. As detoxification doesn't find the answer to the social, cognitive, emotional and psychological aspects linked with addiction, it's seriously advisable that you follow a long-term treatment programme.


Steps Of Drug Detox

Detox involves three important stages in which during the last one, the patient will be transferred to either an inpatient or outpatient programme.

  • Analysis
  • It is paramount that a person receives the correct diagnosis and assessment of the addiction in order for specialists to come up with a treatment plan that will work effectively to achieve the desired results.
  • The assessment phase is also useful in diagnosing any co-occurring complications or underlying mental or physical issues that go with the substance abuse, which means that this phase is more than just simple identification of the addiction and its severity.
  • Becoming Stable
  • The process of stabilization is when a patient starts to withdraw from substances.
  • Achieving sobriety is the main goal for this phase.
  • Certain medications are prescribed at this stage to assist in coping with the drug addiction most especially if the patient has heavily used drugs in the past.
  • After the patient has reached a certain level of level-headedness and are able to think sensibly, an authentic acceptance and admittance of drug dependency can then commence.
  • This leads to the next step where the user recognizes the need for treatment in order for them to recover as well as the role that they have to play in the recovery process.
  • Creating an atmosphere for entering into drug treatment
  • Based on a report, a significant number of patients who go through detoxification choose not to obtain supplementary treatment to address substance abuse dependency.
  • One thing is sure, even though reasons for this are different in every individual: greater success rates for staying sober are present in those who decide to continue their substance abuse treatment.
  • So much weight is placed on addiction awareness and dedication towards sobriety.
  • As soon as this stage is completed, the patient can proceed with the centre's drug treatment programme which can be done either via inpatient or outpatient method.
