Medical Detoxification

Medical detoxification programs or more commonly referred to as detox program is a critical components of treating an individual with an alcohol or drug addiction. Detoxification is a set of medical interventions utilized by an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program to safely detoxify someone from their addiction to alcohol or drugs. The medical detox program helps to manage acute intoxication and withdrawal symptoms that emerge as the body is rid of the toxic substances. The detoxification program will perform medical assessments and evaluate the level of acute intoxication and withdrawal potential for each person entering detox care.

When a person is at the detox center the medical staff will focus attention on biomedical conditions and any associated health complications. In some cases, someone may experience emotional, behavioral, or cognitive conditions or disruptions which the medical and clinical detox team will help transition the person to a more stable state of functioning. Typically, people are still intoxicated or under the influence when they begin the detox process, however, an individual may have recently stopped drinking or using a drug before entering an addiction detox program.

Mood Altering Drugs

If you are addicted to the above substances, there is a high likelihood that the individual will experience withdrawal-related problems. Mood-altering drugs produce changes in brain function by altering the chemistry of the brain. These changes allow the brain to alter the chemistry in such a manner that it creates physical, psychological, and behavioral changes.

This often results in disruptions of physical and psychological functioning. The overall disruptions can cause behavior changes in social relationships. These social and behavioral changes are what most people who observe someone addicted to drugs notice. Most people don’t realize that the chemistry of the brain is being altered by the intoxicating substance entering the body.

Most mood-altering drugs can alter the overall thinking process, while directly damaging the mind, body, and eventually social relationships over an extended period. The repeated usage of the addictive substance can cause an addiction to the substance.

Medical Detox & Tolerance to Addictive Drugs

Most people who develop an addiction to substances will eventually experience what we call tolerance. While the reason to consume addictive substances will vary from one person to another, we do know that the reason tolerance develops because of physical reasons. Tolerance is simply the process of needing or requiring more of the addictive substance to produce the same effect. Tolerance allows the cells in the body to adapt to higher levels of the addictive substance to function in a more normal manner.

The new normal that is created will stop working and the individual will need more of the substance again as the tolerance rises to try and produce the same effect. Therefore, it’s hard for observers of someone who is addicted to drugs to imagine how a person can consume such large amounts of the addictive substance, but the actual reason is the body is adapting to the larger amounts of the substance and the brain is sending out requests to the individual with the addiction to consuming more of the substances into their body.

The request for more addictive drugs then creates a need for more of the substance to maintain that new normal. The process is an adaptation process that allows the body to need more of the drug and so the individual consumes more of the addictive substance to try and maintain a more normal state.

Eventually, this leads to physical withdrawal or discomfort, or other health-related problems. This is the point that medical detox is a needed service for someone with an addiction. Medical detox and Texas Drug Rehabilitation Programs can help with the detox process.

Inpatient Treatment Programs

The inpatient rehabilitation or inpatient treatment programs help provide a medically safe rehabilitation environment so that an individual can recover from their addiction to substances. Inpatient treatment is the level of care that people enter after completing medical detox services. Often people step down to this level of care because they need more help with dealing with other physical or psychological problems or other medical conditions and they still need 24-hour medical monitoring or observations from the medical staff at the inpatient rehabilitation program.

In some situations, there may be medication adjustments or physical health restoration to increase an overall individual’s physical strength to function properly after just recently completing the medical detox phase of treatment. When people that have been using drugs or drinking alcohol go to treatment and enter medical detoxification not everyone just bounces out of detox all happy and ready to enter the next level of care of treatment. Some need more attention to their overall health to make the transition to other forms of treatment services.

There can still be physical and psychological problems that will require assistance, but the nursing staff and counseling staff can help guide the individual through the inpatient phase of treatment. Inpatient treatment is the in-between transition phase of treatment that allows for physical and psychological adjustment so that an individual is more prepared and ready for additional treatment services. When an individual enters an inpatient treatment program initially, they are at a higher risk of experiencing a relapse if they leave treatment or fail to identify psychological triggers. The treatment will help the person deal with cravings and provide solutions to deal with thoughts of returning to alcohol or drugs.

People that are dealing with a substance use disorder along with a co-occurring medical or mental health condition that has more needs that must be managed are normally recommended for this level of treatment. Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs provide more observation and guidance, especially considering that medical doctors, nursing staff, and clinical staff are all working to treat all the conditions simultaneously while the patient is adjusting to being abstinent from alcohol or drugs. Most problems encountered during this phase of treatment are acute and must be monitored to advance the individual onto a lower level of treatment care.

Residential Treatment Programs

The residential treatment program is the most widely utilized type of treatment program in Texas and throughout the United States. People with substance-related disorders utilize this type of treatment program daily. The individual will begin to regulate their cognitive abilities without the presence of addictive substances in the body. The individual will work on dealing with their moderate or severe substance use disorder while addressing problems or difficulties that may have caused stress in their life during their addiction or before their addiction became paramount.

Residential Treatment programs empower an individual to begin the healing process. Sometimes relationships will need to be mended, family relations improved, as well as school and career goals re-established or planned. People will learn new coping skills to help them deal with their substance use disorder and often people are introduced to relapse prevention techniques and different therapies to help heal their addictions. Residential Treatment Programs consist of 30, 60, and 90-day rehab programs.

30-Day Rehabilitation Programs

The 30-day rehabilitation program or 30-day treatment program is one of the most popular types of treatment programs in Texas. More people choose a 30-day treatment program than any other type of treatment program. The 30-day rehab is considered a short-term treatment program and less intense than other types of substance use disorder treatment programs. People learn to maintain abstinence and recovery while dealing with the effects of their alcohol or drug problems. While you do live in the residential treatment program for care the daily structure provided along with routines, therapy, and educational groups enhance individual knowledge of their substance use disorder. Solutions are taught and learned by those in attendance and the process of healing is set in motion. However, an individual must realize that 30-day rehabilitation programs are only beginning services to the overall recovery experience.

The 60-Day Rehabilitation Programs

While there is a lack of 60-day rehabilitation programs in Texas and throughout the United States this type of Texas Drug Rehab is a game-changer for many people who are dealing with a substance use disorder. The 60-day rehabilitation program allows for more time to work on core issues that contributed to an individual addiction and allows for time to practice new skills learned during treatment so that an individual will remain in recovery. Summer Sky Treatment Center does offer a 60-day rehabilitation program to people with a substance use disorder who wants and needs a longer length of treatment to help them heal from their addictions. If you are dealing with a substance use disorder or co-existing medical or mental health disorders then this is a recommended type of treatment program.

90-Day Rehabilitation Programs

This is the “Gold Standard of Addiction Treatment” which is the most advanced type of substance use disorder treatment program. It is a comprehensive addiction treatment program that is backed by research to treat people with addictive disorders. Since research has indicated that 2/3 of all people who enter treatment relapse within the first 90 days after leaving treatment, then this type of treatment program automatically contributes to reducing the chance of a relapse by attending 90 days of treatment services. The structure, accountability daily routine and new self-restraint learned while in the treatment program is something people praise after discharge.

As our understanding of substance use disorders changes new scientific breakthroughs have increased our acknowledgment that addictions are chronic illnesses characterized by impairments in health, social function, and voluntary control over substance use. Addictions are like diabetes, asthma, and hypertension in that they are chronic illnesses with the potential to re-occur if an individual does not stay on task with treatment and recovery protocols.

90-Day rehabilitation programs are designed for severe, complex, and chronic substance use disorders. The treatment program’s overall goal is to foster support to achieve full remission and recovery. It includes relapse prevention, therapeutic interventions, core treatment, and recovery support to help people practice recovery skills that will help them in personal recovery.
