For many, the process of recovery begins with medical detox. Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can be extremely unpleasant, as well as potentially fatal. Experiencing the onset or withdrawals symptoms is one of the most common reasons why people relapse.

This plan is comprehensive, and includes all client health, mental health, and family information as pertinent to long-term treatment of addiction.
Detox is the first and most critical portion of recovery from substance addiction. It is the time in which the person’s health is most at risk, and the chances of relapse and severe depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts may occur.
In general, medically-assisted is safer and more comfortable for the client. In addition, transfer to an inpatient treatment center is easier. more efficient, and allows staff to more fully understand the scope and nature of the client’s addiction and needed treatment program.
Many Detox Programs Available
There are many mind-altering substances that are highly addictive. When we talk about substance abuse and addiction, many people most readily associate cocaine, alcohol, and prescription painkillers; however, heroin is one of the most widely-abused of all chemical intoxicants.
Fentanyl is currently the most powerful opioid substance available, estimated at approximately 100 times more powerful than morphine and roughly 10 times more powerful than heroin. Even used on its own, recreational fentanyl use is often lethal. The likelihood of overdosing is even more likely among individuals who often don’t realize that the heroin they’re dosing has been laced with the powerful opioid. For this reason, widespread fentanyl use frequently coincides with overdose outbreaks.
Like most other mind-altering substances, benzodiazepines — or “benzos” for short — are prone to abuse and highly addictive. Functioning very similar to alcohol in the way that they elevate GABA in the brain, benzodiazepines cause a form of intoxication that’s comparable to alcoholic intoxication when they’re abused. As well, alcohol and benzodiazepines are also similar in the fact that abruptly ceasing the use of the substance after having been addicted for a period of time can be quite dangerous. Not only does a person addicted to benzodiazepines risk withdrawal symptoms, the abrupt cessation of benzodiazepines can actually be fatal, which is why individuals who are addicted to benzodiazepines are often discouraged from attempting to detox from benzodiazepines on their own.
Ultimately, the goal of our methadone detox is to ensure that you’re prepared for the treatment phase of recovery by helping you to work through your physical addiction to methadone. By the completion of the methadone detox, you’ll no longer be physically addicted to methadone, meaning that the risk of withdrawal symptoms will be slim and you’ll be able to focus on treatment once you proceed into your treatment program.
