Rapid Detox Q & A

What is detox?

Detox is part of the recovery process from drug or alcohol dependence. When you stop using drugs or alcohol, your body goes through withdrawal. Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol may cause a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Aches and pains
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Irritability

Some people may have life-threatening withdrawal symptoms such as seizures, heart problems, or thoughts of suicide. The severity of your withdrawal symptoms may depend on the type of drug you use and how long you’ve been using it.

Detoxing from drugs or alcohol is hard. At Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc., the team offers a rapid detox program that may lessen the severity of your withdrawal symptoms.  

What is rapid detox?

At Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc., the rapid detox program is a medication-assisted detox. The medications the team uses during your detox minimize the pain you feel while in the midst of your withdrawal.

Many people feel they need to go “cold turkey” when they decide they no longer want to use drugs or alcohol. However, this approach not only causes unnecessary pain and discomfort but may also increase your risk for relapse.

With rapid detox at Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc., you get the medical and psychological support you need for long-term recovery.
