A brief word about detox and withdrawal
No matter whom you are or how strong your physical make-up is, addiction treatment and recovery is never easy, especially if you have been using a substance for a prolonged period of time. The first stage of the rehab process is normally the detox stage. Although it is the most difficult and unpleasant stage to undergo, it is the most critical stage of the entire addiction treatment and recovery process.
The withdrawal symptoms can include one or many of the following:
- body aches
- bone pain
- joint pain
- muscle aches
You can readily see how any of these can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. In fact, it is this pain and discomfort that oftentimes causes the individual to relapse back into their addiction or dependency. For the addicted individual, it is all about doing what ever it takes to alleviate their cravings and pain.
It doesn’t have to hurt to quit using drugs
One of the primary reasons, other than money, that many individuals resist getting the professional help offered by an addiction treatment and recovery center is the fear of learning how to live without drugs. This fear of the unknown is combined with knowing that the detox and withdrawal stage of the entire rehab process is the most difficult and by far the most unpleasant to undergo. Interestingly enough, the detox process does not have to be the painful and uncomfortable experience that so many individuals fear.
Enter the painless drug detox program, a relatively new concept in the field of addiction treatment and recovery. However, it simply means that the individual is made as safe and comfortable as possible during the detox stage. In many cases, a number of medical and therapeutic techniques are incorporated in order to alleviate or eliminate the discomfort and pain of the process. Hence it has been labeled as “painless” in order to describe that this is a different type of detox.
The painless drug detox program doesn’t lessen the amount of the medications that are administered during this stage of the addiction treatment and recovery process. Nor does it imply that the suffering individual works through the pain. It simply means that the person is provided with every luxury possible to ensure that the detox process goes smoothly and is as painless as it possibly can be.
