Many people are not aware that becoming addicted to alcohol, prescription drugs or illegal substances can create withdrawal symptoms when an individual abruptly stops ingesting an addictive substance. However, this sobering reality is cause for concern for many people with an alcohol or drug problem. This lack of knowledge can be dangerous and cause unnecessary risk for people with an addiction.

Detoxification is the process of allowing medical interventions to prevent uncomfortable and dangerous withdrawal symptoms from emerging when a person begins the detox process. The medical team along with support staff and addiction counselors work together with the person individual who is in detox to help guide the person through detoxification.

Alcohol Detoxification

The most common form of medical detoxification involves people who have developed alcohol use disorders. The alcohol detoxification process will help a person overcome physical and psychological dependence on alcohol. The goal is for the person to become alcohol-free and relieve the acute symptoms of withdrawal and stabilize any associated medical or psychiatric problems.

The short-term goal for the individual is to return to a state of abstinence from alcohol while also preparing an individual for other forms of alcohol treatment services. Summer Sky Treatment Center® located in Stephenville, Texas has an alcohol detoxification program that can help you break free from alcoholism.

Inpatient Detoxification

There are many advantages to requesting help from an alcohol rehab or alcohol treatment program that offers medical detoxification services. The main feature that attracts people to inpatient detoxification is the 24-hour medical monitoring along with medications to curb the associated withdrawal symptoms from emerging. The other advantages are safety and comfortableness that are experienced while living in the inpatient detoxification program.

What are some of the services provided during Medical Detoxification?

There is an initial assessment, including an intake history, and physical examination which is all-important for the detoxification process. The medical doctor will order laboratory studies and decide on the initiation of the type of detoxification treatment. Once this process is completed the medications are administered and then an individual is encouraged to rest and allow the medications to begin helping detoxify the harmful toxic substance from the body.

The average time that it takes someone to fully detoxify from alcohol or drugs can range from 5 to 14 days depending on the substance that a person is being detoxified from and other considerations are the amount and time an individual has been addicted to the substances. People using benzodiazepines have been known to require longer durations to detox from this addictive substance.
