What Can You Expect During Detox?

Once you decide that you need to enter drug and alcohol detox treatment center programs, you will need to prepare for registration and admission. We can help you prepare by giving you a checklist of everything you will need to bring with you to detox as well as general detox information.

Once you begin your detox, your withdrawal symptoms will slowly emerge. The type of symptoms, severity, and duration all depend on the circumstances of your addiction. Most people who go through detox experience symptoms such as:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Sweating or chills
  • Hallucinations
  • Severe cravings

The good news is that once your detox is over, you will feel a lot better. The specialists at Promises Treatment Centers will be there to assist you and monitor your progress every step of the way. So, you never have to worry about being alone during your detox.

Most withdrawal symptoms only last for a few days. Once you complete detox, you will be ready for your next phase of treatment. You can speak with a therapist to determine what type of post-detox therapy is best for you.

Can You Detox at Home?

Before deciding to attempt detox at home, you need to research detox information and be aware of the severe physical consequences of detox. First, your brain and body have developed a dependency on the substance. Over an extended period of time, your body gets used to functioning with the substance in your system.

When you suddenly deny your body the substance, it will react physically. The result is withdrawal symptoms that can be painful, uncomfortable, and even dangerous. Symptoms of alcohol detox can be especially dangerous — even fatal. If you do not have a medical professional to observe your signs and monitor your progress, you could suffer from severe side effects.

Our Detox Process

Since your detox and your withdrawal symptoms will be unique, your process may not look the same as someone else’s. We can customize your detox within a basic structure that includes:

1. Evaluation

Before you undergo detox, we need to perform an assessment that consists of a Q&A session, physical, and a treatment plan. We use blood tests to determine the amount of substance that is in your system. From there, we can also decide whether you need medication or monitoring only. We can also make recommendations on other types of therapy, including holistic therapies such as our art therapy program, so we can make you as comfortable as possible.

2. Stabilization

Once you begin your detox, your withdrawal symptoms will slowly emerge. We can stabilize your detox using psychological therapy and medication. Our objective is to keep you from incurring any severe side effects that could affect your health.

3. Starting Your Treatment Plan

Once your withdrawal systems have disappeared, and the substance is out of your system, we can begin your treatment plan. This may include inpatient or outpatient therapy combined with individual or group activities. Your family may also request some therapy.
