Medical Detox: The Only Way to Detox Safely
The process of detoxification is a critical pathway to your journey to recovery. It represents a bridge between the current version of you and the healthier you.
Though, the detox process isn’t always given the attention it deserves. While some may simply write-off detox as a transitional period from addiction to recovery, it warrants serious consideration. Without the proper supervision and care, individuals pursuing a path free from the chains of addiction can suffer serious and long-lasting physical and mental repercussions. For example, if a heavy-drinker suddenly stops, he or she may experience severe complications include dehydration, vomiting, abnormal heart rhythms and a condition called delirium tremens.
While going “cold-turkey” on your own may seem like the only option, there are treatment facilities available that specialize in helping to make the detox process as comfortable and safe as possible.
3 Reasons to Choose Medical Detox
- 24/7 supervision. In contrast to going it alone, a medical detox is designed to provide round-the-clock support. With the help of an experienced addiction recovery staff, individuals can start their journey to health surrounded by a caring team dedicated to their recovery.
- Clinical expertise. When individuals with a drug or alcohol dependency start to cleanse their mind, body and spirit, it’s common for them to experience a wide range of physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. That is why selecting a medical detox is crucial. An experienced team can proactively recommend the right therapies to mitigate the harmful side-effects and help you transition into a healthier, substance-free state of mind.
- Personalized nutrition and hydration support. Prolonged exposure to alcohol and drugs can deplete your body of essential nutrients including thiamin, folic acid and zinc. With medical detox support, your recovery team can monitor your vital stats and supplement your system with important nutrients during the detox process to stabilize your system to fuel your recovery efforts.
