Those considering recovery from addiction and wanting to know more about rehab programs often ask, “Is detox painful?” The answer is that it depends on several factors. You can learn about the process and then make a more informed decision. Summit Estate Recovery Center can help you. Contact our drug and alcohol detox program at 800.701.6997 to learn more.
Is Detox Painful?
When you are withdrawing from alcohol, it flushes out from your body. While this is not necessarily painful, you may have withdrawal symptoms, such as:
- Irregular heartbeat
Some people experience only minor withdrawal discomfort, while others may actually face pain. A rehab facility can make you more comfortable with pain management through medication. If your drug or alcohol addiction problems span many years, you may suffer more severe symptoms. A medical professional can monitor your progress and treat whatever symptoms you are experiencing.
The amount of time you have experienced addiction, to which substance, the method of using the substance, and the severity of the addiction will all be factors in your withdrawal.
Should You Consider Cold Detox at Home?
Cutting out drugs and alcohol, or going cold-turkey, is not something to attempt at home. Seizures and severe dehydration can occur as well as other serious issues. Medical detox allows you to deal with the more severe symptoms of withdrawal, such as:
- Concentration difficulties
- Severe anxiety
Opioids and heroin are the drugs from which withdrawal is most uncomfortable. Alcohol and benzos may often require some type of medication and are the most dangerous to detox from. We provide a medical detox treatment center to help you transition to our inpatient program.
After Medical Detox
Medical detox from the drug is the first step; mental detox is the next step. Medication-assisted treatment at the right treatment center can help you achieve sobriety. The use of FDA-approved medications can hold the worst withdrawal and early recovery symptoms in check. Along with inpatient programs, we offer partial hospitalization, outpatient, and intensive outpatient programs.
Medication-assisted treatment and mental health treatment are part of your recovery at Summit Estate Recovery Center. Our programs comprise group, family, and individual therapy. In addition to these, we offer a range of alternative therapies and holistic methods. Success in recovery might lead you down a variety of paths.
Education and recovery therapies are part of the process at our residential treatment center. We can customize a program for you that meets your own special needs. Our rehab can guide you to success with lasting results and the achievement of your long-term goals.
If you are living with depression or a bipolar disorder in addition to addiction, our dual diagnosis program addresses addiction and mental illness symptoms at the same time. Better health is the result after completion of rehab with a combination of methods.
