Why would a person need addiction detox?

Addiction by its very nature is a debilitating disorder that affects a person’s body, mind, and social relationships. The addiction detox process is an important aspect of helping people to become physically free from addictive substances. Many people experience withdrawal symptoms when they attempt to stop using either alcohol, prescription drugs, or other drugs. In some cases, an individual’s addiction will require medical detox before the individual can participate in other forms of therapy or addiction treatment services.

It is also imperative that if an individual plans to stop using an addictive substance that they understand that certain substances will create withdrawal symptoms once a person discontinues the usage of an addictive substance. Medical Detox is available to intervene upon the withdrawal syndrome to minimize the symptoms that normally present once a substance is stopped. People who attempt to stop using an addictive substance may find it difficult to stay stopped or may experience uncomfortable and dangerous symptoms of withdrawal shortly after abruptly stopping their usage. It is recommended that individuals consult with a medical detox facility to arrange detoxification services before stopping their usage of an addictive substance.

Occasionally referral to a higher level of care may be indicated or needed during medical detox.

Summer Sky Medical Detox Programs

Summer Sky can help individuals living throughout Texas and residents of Tyler, Texas to become substance-free from alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal substances. We understand the unique medical and psychological interventions that are required to help people to become alcohol or drug-free from substances. Detox is a favorable first step in treating a person with a substance use disorder. Sometimes people with different addictions to a substance will require the assistance of medical professionals to monitor for complications of other medical conditions while simultaneously utilizing the services of an addiction detox facility. Many people are drinking so much alcohol or using prescription drugs or illegal substances that when they attempt to stop using their substances, they experience the beginning stages of the withdrawal process. The withdrawal process for many people can be dangerous if the individual attempts to abruptly stop using an addictive substance on their own. Minimizing the risk associated with medical complications is always a high priority for an addiction detox facility.

Biological Concerns

Every individual reacts differently to the removal of substances from their body. Some experience mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms while others experience more severe withdrawal symptoms and require more medical intervention during the withdrawal process. Medical Detoxification Programs will begin the process with a screening process followed by a comprehensive assessment to help determine the exact protocol that is required to address an individual’s physical and psychological symptoms that will present once a person begins detoxification. It is always recommended that an individual contact an addiction detox facility before abruptly stopping their usage of addictive substances.

Psychological Concerns

When it comes to an addiction an individual’s mind and mental status can easily become just as impaired as their physical body as a result of repeated usage of either alcohol or other addictive substances. An addiction can alter a person’s perception of reality to the point that it becomes difficult to differentiate the truth about their situation. They may struggle with minimizing the amounts of substance they are putting into their body or rationalize that it is ok for them to continue to use a substance even though they are experiencing physical and psychological problems. Denying that they have a problem is a psychological problem that is often experienced when confronted by a family member or a loved one. However, once a person makes up their mind that they need help for their alcohol or drug problem a medical detox program will help them begin the process of dealing with their psychological problems by removing the substance from their body.

Compulsive Desires to Ingest Substances

Many people that have become addicted to mood or mind-altering substances will describe that they experience an overwhelming desire or a compulsive desire to seek out the substance despite knowing that the usage is going to harm them physically or psychologically. They also describe that they experience cravings or intense desires to use the substance. This is repeated until they seek help for their problem. Some people experience physical cravings and psychological cravings while others experience both physical and psychological cravings especially when they are not under the influence of the substance. People with addictions often try to avoid uncomfortable cravings by keeping substances in their bodies to keep the craving process from emerging.
