For some, their biggest fear is entering treatment. From “How sick will I get while withdrawing?” to “How long will it last?” we have heard it all – so let’s talk about it.
Withdrawal management or ‘detox’ as it has been known is the process of abstaining from harmful substances to rid toxins in the bloodstream and managing the symptoms that come along with the process.
Our clinical approach has helped many have smooth transitions from withdrawing to focusing on their long-term recovery goals.
“Withdrawal from any substance can be uncomfortable, but with the team of support and trained professionals it does take the edge off of the experience,” says Vice President of Medical Operations Paige Ross. “As cliche as it sounds, most allow fear of being sick, prevent them from a life of living. I encourage you to take a chance, in a safe, medical monitored environment that will make you as comfortable as we possibly can.”
At Addiction Recovery Care we manage withdrawal symptoms by:
- Assessing your individual needs since everyone has a different experience. Withdrawal symptoms are different for each person and present in a variety of ways.
- Providing comfort medications to help with common withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, insomnia, dizziness, fatigue, and changes in vital signs.
- Continuous monitoring from our medical team to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible.
