Drug Detox Overview
Drug Detox is a short process prior to therapeutic treatment that gradually weans a person off of the substance, which his or her body has become addicted to and reliant upon. Depending on the particular substance, it may be necessary to support the body’s detoxification through a number different remedies and techniques, including medical administration of drugs. For instance, in instances of Heroin Detox Treatment or other Opioid Abuse, it’s common to use careful, monitored amounts in order to help the body detox in a gradual, safe manner. We also incorporate use of Subuxone and Subutux, which are two prescription drugs that help to dramatically lessen the withdrawal symptoms for Heroin users.
As countless studies and our own extensive experience has shown, when a person beginning Drug Abuse Treatment with a Drug Detox program greatly increases the likelihood to achieve and sustain sobriety. While this has been somewhat common practice for a number of years, it was also true that sometimes people would avoid treatment, because of their overwhelming fear of going through the detox process. This anxiety and fear was predominantly based on past accounts of traumatic experiences, from a much earlier time in treatment when people would fully experience negative withdrawal symptoms, without much assistance. It’s important therefore to recognize that these kinds of extreme negative experiences are largely old woes based on outdated processes. Since then, significant advancements in addiction medicine and treatment have been made and today, our Drug Detox program at the Lakehouse Recovery Center draws upon multiple cutting-edge techniques and modalities that greatly mitigate the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. In this sense, we strongly believe that our Lakehouse Recovery Drug Detox treatment program provides an open door to recovery for those who may have previously not embarked upon this life-changing journey, while also making it possible for people to experience a comfortable, safe, and effective Drug Detox experience.
