Battling an addiction often involves a great deal more than just continuing to abuse drugs and/or alcohol; it can also include a great deal of time and effort in keeping withdrawal symptoms at bay. For many addictive substances, such as alcohol, heroin, meth, and prescription drugs, uncomfortable, sometimes painful, and distracting withdrawal symptoms emerge when a person is either not able to abuse more of his or her drug of choice or in the event an individual attempts to end his or her addiction without help. These symptoms, which are both physically and emotionally taxing, are often enough to trigger a person to begin using substances again and even in greater amounts.
At Keystone Treatment Center, we recognize and understand how powerful the withdrawal process can be and we are pleased to offer effective and life-changing detoxification services through our renowned detox program to those who require them while at our center.
Detox, which will likely be the first phase of your care if you need this sort of treatment, is the process in which harmful substances of abuse are cleared from your body. When attempted outside of a treatment setting, withdrawal can be exceptionally overwhelming and can cause you to relapse quickly. However, within our medically monitored detox program, your body can heal from the damage caused by substance abuse and the drugs and/or alcohol that you were once dependent on will no longer be in your system. By partaking in this sort of care, you will ultimately be able to avoid the following types of withdrawal symptoms and comfortably begin your recovery journey:
- Overpowering drug cravings
- Bone pain
- Sleep disturbances
- Profound anxiety
- Mood swings
- Abdominal pain
- Muscle pain
With the support of a team of expertly trained professionals, which includes doctors, nurses, addiction experts, and mental health professionals, you will be able to completely avoid the above listed symptoms or experience far less intense versions of them as your body readjusts to no longer being under the influence of addictive substances. Lasting between 3 and 7 days, detox at Keystone is a thorough process and you will be made as comfortable as possible before beginning the next phase of your recovery journey. Furthermore, depending on your needs at the time, you may be given non-addictive medications to alleviate any physical pain or other distress that you experience during this initial step in your treatment.
Additionally, by participating in the detox program at our treatment center, you will be able to take advantage of the following benefits that can both enhance your recovery and provide you with the support and interventions you need to become sober:
- Detox at Keystone is a 24/7 level of care so that your body can be fully cleared of all harmful substances of abuse.
- Nurses who are deeply devoted to helping you reach your treatment goals are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to monitor your health and ensure that your detox experience is safe and effective.
- Doctors also supervise detox services and can recommend various treatment methods if your needs require additional care.
- Be it you or your child who is in need of detox, Keystone Treatment Center offers these services to adults and adolescents alike.
- Upon completion of detox, you are then seamlessly transitioned into the next step of your treatment. At Keystone, you can either begin our inpatient services or outpatient services so that you can continue working towards developing a sober lifestyle.
It is important to know that our detox program is not a stand-alone level of care, and that participation in this program means that you are intending on partaking in our other treatment options. Given our commitment to offering fully comprehensive and well-rounded services, detox is considered but one aspect of the full treatment experience at our center.
The overarching goal of our detox program is to provide you with a safe environment and the necessary support and interventions you need to jumpstart your recovery process. As a means of accomplishing this goal, we also provide you with an assigned primary therapist so that you can discuss your emotions, thoughts, and experiences with a trained professional. We also encourage you to begin participating in other therapeutic interventions as soon as you are physically and emotionally able to do so.
If you think that our detox program and therapeutic services can meet your treatment needs, please contact our center today to get more information or to begin the admissions process. Our staff is available to help you make the most informed decision about your care and your future as a sober person.
