Detoxification is the most crucial phase in the addiction treatment and recovery process. It is the starting point wherein individuals begin to rebuild their lives and return to normalcy. It is also the most difficult and unpleasant stage as well. Most importantly, without this phase of the addiction treatment and recovery process, an individual cannot proceed any further and there is little hope for recovery. Here are some things you need to be aware of:
- Detox should not be confused with rehab – treatment and recovery programs that claim detox is the equivalent of rehab should be avoided and not trusted.
- The time frame is not always that lengthy – some individuals successfully complete the detox process within a week to 10 days while others may take 2 weeks or more.
- Detox must be completed before moving on to the ensuing phases – for an individual to move on to the counseling phase of addiction treatment and recovery, the completion of the detox phase is imperative.
- Detox is one of three phases of the treatment and recovery process – in-patient and out-patient programs alike typically offer detox although in some cases the latter type of program may not.
- Withdrawal symptoms are common during detox – the human body undergoes a considerable amount of stress during the detox phase. In most cases, and depending on the severity of the addiction, withdrawal symptoms that arise can be extremely unpleasant.
- Never attempt to detox on your own – although the withdrawal symptoms that arise when an individual is undergoing detox are rarely life-threatening, they can be very serious at times and extremely unpleasant. It is always recommended that you undergo this process under the care, monitoring, and supervision of a licensed physician.
- You may not be successful the first time – not every individual is successful the first time they go through detox. Along with the process being a difficult one to undergo, the risk of relapsing back into the addiction is extremely high at this time.
- Detox can be a rewarding accomplishment – although the journey to total recovery may seem like one that has no end to it, it can be a richly rewarding experience to know that you have weathered the storm and completed this phase. You should be extremely proud of your accomplishment.
The types of medications that are administered at this time will depend on is normally determined by two critical aspects:
- the type of withdrawal symptoms that the individual is experiencing when they are undergoing detox
- whether or not the individual may experience a reaction to a specific medication
As an example of this, individuals that are addicted to heroin will usually be treated with Buprenorphine or Methadone (referred to as Buprenorphine or Methadone maintenance). In addition to these two medications, the following are oftentimes administered for medical detox of alcohol or drug abuse, addiction, or dependency:
- Acamprosate (Campral)
- Disulfiram (Antabuse)
- Klonepin (Clonazepam)
- Valium (Diazepam)
In most instances, these medications will be administered during the detox stage and then are gradually reduced in dosage until the detox process has been complete and they have been cleared to move on to counseling which is the initial stage of the recovery process. These medications also ease the bone and muscle pain, insomnia, and nausea that is characteristic of withdrawal during detox.
