What is a Drug Detox Program?
To answer the question precisely, detoxification is a natural process used to overcome drugs. Addiction is a multilayered physiological disorder. It requires detoxification that can be a complex process if attempted without medical assistance. It is a process to eliminate the drug substance from your body.
When drugs enter your body, the systems of your body adapt to the new changes processed by the chemicals. Drugs create havoc on the natural processes of your body. Drugs like heroin and cocaine are powerful enough to damage the natural cleaning protocol of the body.
People who rely on natural detoxification methods often end up putting their lives at risk. This is where the role of the drug detox program comes into play. The House of The Rising Son provides the safest treatment choices for alcohol and drug rehab for individuals with newly developed drug addiction and people with old drug addiction history.
What Happens in the Detoxification Process?
As mentioned previously, detoxification is the first step in addiction treatment. The psychological burden of leaving drugs and entering detoxification is apparent for an addicted individual. Not only does he/she fear to lose the drugs, but also the stress of mental, emotional, and physical effects that accompany withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms appear when your body becomes addicted and habituated to drug you have been consuming over a long time, and you stop them completely or reduce the dosage.
Can I Detox Drugs Cold Turkey?
Some people believe that leaving drugs cold turkey is as easy as leaving any other medication they have been taking for a long time. In reality, it is not the case.
When you stop taking drugs all at once without using drug tapers or medication, you push your body system to sudden withdrawal.
For many people, leaving drugs is a conscious choice. It all depends on their decision as they stop taking drugs the day they made up their mind to get rid of the addiction. However, it is not a choice for some people. Prison inmates, for example, are forced to go through withdrawal process cold-turkey as many countries do not provide any medical care or drug rehab unless there is a life-threatening health complication at play.
While leaving drugs, cold turkey might seem an appealing idea, the process is difficult. As soon as it allows people to decide to leave drugs, it comes with plenty of risks. Not all drugs have the same withdrawal effects. The withdrawal cravings of opioids, heroin, Benzodiazepines are difficult to ignore and may lead to many life-threatening complications.
Remember that a rapid withdrawal from any drug addiction can cause medical crises and relapses. For a consultation call our team now to discuss your needs. Our medical professionals at The House of The Rising Son can assist you in how to manage your withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapses.
