Detoxing is the First Step to Addiction Recovery

Often when addressing addiction to alcohol, heroin, or prescription drugs, the first problem is dealing with the likelihood of withdrawal.  During detoxification, one’s mind and spirit must not only deal with the absence of drugs or alcohol, but also with the physical, neurochemical, and bodily dysfunction.

Supervised Medical Detox with St. Gregory Recovery Center

St. Gregory Recovery Center provides comforting medical detoxification services, as we take great care in assisting our clients through this process. A smooth, comfortable drug detox is necessary to ensure a successful transition into any recovery program. The goal of our medical detox team is to safely and as comfortably as possible help our guests break through their chemical dependency. This allows them to be as physically prepared as possible to begin working on the rest of their lives.

Detox at home can be fatal – Don’t risk it!

Alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids have the highest risk of withdrawal problems leading to recurrent use and failure in following through with treatment of the primary problem, substance use. Although the symptoms can be similar, the risk for withdrawal is intensified when combinations of these agents are used. Alcohol and sedative-hypnotics (benzodiazepines and others) can result in delirium tremens (more commonly referred to as “DTs”) with a risk of death.

What are some common symptoms of withdrawal?

Xanax detox, Valium detox, Klonopin detox, and detox from the other Benzodiazepines listed below can produce withdrawal symptoms including delirium tremens, excessive sweating, vomiting, insomnia, loss of appetite and weight loss, anxiety, and depression. Delirium tremens is manifested by agitation and restlessness, confusion, hallucinations, delusions, and seizures. Heroin detox, Methadone detox, Oxycodone detox, and detox from the other opioids listed below can result in muscle, bone, and joint pain, crampy abdominal pains, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, along with yawning, sweating, lacrimation, rhinorrhea, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, dilated pupils, piloerection, chills, tachycardia, and hypertension.
