The reality of the situation is that there is no way to fully stop withdrawal symptoms from happening. After years of drug and alcohol abuse, feeling sick when getting clean is most likely the driving force that keeps people from getting help. A Better Today Recovery Services highly encourages you to not go through this withdrawal process alone. The first steps in recovery are the most intimidating. Having a strong support staff cheering you on, inspiring you to pull through, and encouraging you to overcome the hardship will start your treatment off on the right foot.
Depending on the length of the addiction and substances abused, the withdrawal process will vary in intensity. Some of the most commonly experienced withdrawal symptoms are vomiting, headaches, sensitive skin, sweating, chills, and shaking. That is why we want to help you find a treatment center that offers around-the-clock care. During social detox, clinicians monitor patients to make sure that their needs are being met and they are safely withdrawing. We have a nurse on the premises at all times to ensure a safe withdrawal.
Some treatment centers provide medical detox. During medical detox, treatment specialists provide medications that can ease withdrawal symptoms. For example, a treatment center might supply buprenorphine or naloxone. These medications act as neuro-blockers; they keep patients safe while going through alcohol or prescription drug withdrawal. At most treatment centers, clinicians will provide medical detox or social detox depending on the patient’s personal needs. Both social detox and medical detox are effective methods to help patients work through their withdrawal periods.
