Medically Supervised Detox

The first step after deciding to seek help for addiction is to safely remove the substance from your system. In most cases, this involves an uncomfortable, and sometimes dangerous, detox process. It’s important to undergo detox under the supervision of medical experts due to the medical complications that could arise.

A medically supervised detox lowers the risk of relapse. This is because the addicted individual won’t have the option of using again to mitigate the symptoms of withdrawal.  Detoxing at home can be dangerous and frightening. Withdrawal symptoms don’t just affect a person’s body, but their mind as well. 

If left to their own devices a person withdrawing from drugs or alcohol may become incredibly anxious. They could suffer from delusions that make them a threat to themselves or others. Miramar Recovery combines medical and psychiatric practices to help our patients attain a sober body and mind.

How Long Does Detox Last?

This can depend on several factors:

  • How much the patient has been drinking or using
  • How often, or how long, the patient has been drinking or using
  • A patient’s state of mind, or severity of psychological symptoms
  • The particular drug, or mix of drugs, that people were using and reliant on

Withdrawal From Alcohol

Alcoholism and alcohol abuse is a growing condition, with over 30 million adults reporting binge drinking at least once a week. According to the NIAAA, it is estimated that 88,000 people die annually from alcohol-related causes. This makes alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.

Detoxing from alcohol is more dangerous than many people believe. An unsupervised detox from alcohol has the potential to be life-threatening. The symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol can lead to many complications in both psychiatric and physical realms.

Symptoms can include:

  • Shaking
  • Sweating
  • Delusions
  • Seizures
  • Possibly even death.

This is why supervised detox and medical care is so important.

When someone is physically dependent on alcohol, every organ in their body becomes accustomed to the substance being in their system. So, when alcohol is taken away, the body begins experiencing a “shock”. In order to achieve a successful transition, it is imperative to have experienced professionals.

Withdrawal From Drugs

Withdrawal from drugs can prove just as frightening as withdrawal from alcohol. After repeated use, illicit substances and prescription medications wreak havoc on a person’s body. When someone stops using the drugs that they have become dependent upon it is vital that they have appropriate supervision.

Miramar provides a medically supervised drug detox from opioids, amphetamines, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, stimulants, barbiturates, and other prescription medications. 

Depending on the type of drug that someone is detoxing from, they may experience a wide range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. In some cases, medication-assisted treatment may be necessary in order to safely overcome the symptoms of withdrawal. Our psychiatrists can prescribe medications that can ease you off of harder drugs without the temptation of relapse or abuse. This will help you to focus on your recovery efforts and encourage long term rehabilitation.

Safely Treating Alcohol And Drug Withdrawal

We utilize a combination of medications and other therapeutic practices to safely treat those with alcohol withdrawal symptoms. We can ensure that our patients are able to cope with them appropriately. These medications prevent dangerous physical reactions that occur during alcohol withdrawal, especially seizures and hallucinations.

Of course, treating the psychological symptoms of alcohol withdrawal is also essential. For this reason, the staff at our Newport detox center are available 24/7 for clients who are experiencing symptoms of withdrawal.

Therapists are available for those experiencing distressing psychological symptoms. Our psychiatrists are available to treat any underlying mental illnesses that may exist with someone’s substance abuse disorder.

At Miramar, your safety and comfort are one of our greatest priorities. Which is why we value our medical detoxification program so highly. When getting started with substance abuse treatment you need a clean slate to truly address the issues that started the addiction.

Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms

Once someone has finished with the detox process, post-acute withdrawal symptoms can remain. These symptoms can last for several months or even more in some cases. These are some of the symptoms of post-acute withdrawal:

  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Tiredness/lethargy
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia or the ability to sleep adequately
  • Decreased concentration
