The Importance of Detox

The importance of detox from prescription drugs

Even though prescription drugs can be exceptionally helpful for those who need them, there are those who abuse these medications for the sole purpose of getting high. Depending on the type of prescription drug that someone is misusing, the effects that can occur as a result can vary. However, for many prescription medication addictions, treatment is most certainly warranted in order for a person to reclaim his or her life from this deadly form of chemical dependency.

If you have been abusing prescription drugs and are now realizing that you’re not able to stop, you’re an excellent candidate for professional treatment. Especially if you experience withdrawal symptoms when not under the influence of your prescription drug of choice, addiction treatment can help you win the war against your addiction once and for all. In searching for effective treatment, it is best for you to also consider care that features detoxification services, or detox. This facet of care enables you to navigate withdrawal safely so that you can avoid relapse and focus on the therapeutic aspect of your treatment.

Benefits of Detox

Failing to receive care that includes detox can mean that you are especially vulnerable to experiencing a relapse or never really stopping your abuse of prescription medications. However, if you participate in a program that provides this invaluable service, you can benefit in the following ways:

  • Since detox programs do not permit the continued abuse of substances, your risk of relapse is decreased significantly.
  • You will no longer be subjected to the harm caused by the continued abuse of prescription medications.
  • Professional addiction treatment specialists and medical staff are on-hand within this level of care to protect your physical health and emotional wellbeing during this first step in your recovery journey.
  • If the withdrawal symptoms that you are experiencing are especially uncomfortable or painful, you may be given certain medications to alleviate your discomfort. It is also important to know that any medication given to you in detox is closely monitored so that you don’t develop any further substance abuse issues.
  • You will have ongoing support from caring people who will encourage you every step of the way during detox.
  • You can seamlessly transition to the therapeutic portion of your care without interruption to your process. For many, this means participating in a program that offers a variety of therapeutic supports meant to help you understand yourself and addiction better and assist you in developing the skills needed to be sober.

There are many men and women who don’t receive detox services and remain trapped in the vicious cycle of prescription medication addiction. In fact, when efforts are made to end this type of substance abuse without professional help, many individuals relapse quickly, develop a more severe addiction to ward off withdrawal symptoms, engage in polysubstance abuse, or experience an overdose with the hope of keeping withdrawal symptoms at bay. However, if you elect to participate in detox services within a reputable and comprehensive treatment program, you can rest assured that your chances of remaining on the path of recovery are substantially higher.

At Delta Specialty Hospital, we understand how difficult it can be to try to overcome an addiction to prescription medications without professional help. We also know how beneficial professional and effective treatment can be for someone who is ready to leave the abuse of prescription drugs in the past. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer top notch detox services and therapeutic treatment for men and women who are in search of a better life that no long involves the abuse of prescription medications. Our time-tested, research-backed, and medically supervised detox services have jumpstarted countless individuals’ recovery journeys and we are confident that we can help you too.
