How to Prepare for Rapid Detox

How to Prepare for Rapid Detox

If you are affected by alcohol or drug dependency and try to quit these substances, your body might experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be uncomfortable, but our team is ready to help.

Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc in Honolulu, Hawaii is proud to offer rapid detox assistance to support you through your detox symptoms as you stop taking alcohol or drugs. Below, we explain how you can prepare for rapid detox treatment and what it involves. 

Detox techniques

The detoxing process involves getting rid of the substances inside your body. There are different ways of detoxing, but it’s important to consult one of our specialists to determine which option is best for you. 

One way of detoxing is “cold turkey,” which means to quit taking substances all at once. While it might sound like the quickest way to get drugs or alcohol out of your system, it can be dangerous to quit certain drugs suddenly, such as:

Instead, our team can give you replacement medication as you move off the drug(s) you usually take. This is safer and prevents severe withdrawal symptoms. 

Another way of detoxing is tapering, which means to slowly take less until you can stop taking the drug completely. Tapering can take weeks or months, depending on what drugs you take and for how long. 

Our medical experts make sure to set reasonable and realistic time frames and support you every step of the way. 

Rapid detox 

Rapid detox is a type of detox that helps you get through withdrawal symptoms with prescribed medication, which helps take the edge off uncomfortable and painful withdrawal symptoms. Severe withdrawal symptoms can cause people to go back to alcohol or drugs.

Some of the withdrawal symptoms you might experience can include:

Relieving these symptoms can help you stop taking substances for good.
