Drug Detoxification Process


Two processes that are essential first steps in determining a person's substance treatment plan are the withdrawal and substance detox processes. Frequently the effects of a substance on the brain justify its continued use and distort otherwise sound powers of reasoning, therefore it is vital to have a time where no substances are used in order to get the patient to a sound frame of mind.

During this period an addict is in a position to think about future plans which may include treatment as they have a moment of clarity. The plan is to get the addict to start to acknowledge his/her addiction and to decrease and ultimately put an end to substance use.


this timeframe in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) TIP 45 on drug detox is noted as a "window of opportunity" for a person with both medical and personal issues to think about further rehabilitation.


Demystifying Detoxification

SAMHSA defines detox as a series of interventions that are done to control withdrawal symptoms and acute intoxication. Detox isn't a component of a drug abuse treatment, instead it is a predecessor; it can go on for several days for some patients and for others, several months. Futures of Palm Beach can provide you with detoxification expert who can get you into a rehab plan that is specifically created for you as an individual and assist you in treating withdrawal side effects with success. It is highly recommended that you pursue a long-term treatment plan because detox does not solve the emotional, psychological, social, and cognitive problems associated with addiction.


Substance Detoxification Steps

Before you can go into an outpatient or inpatient recovery program you should go through three steps of detoxification that, ideally, lead to it.

  • Analysis
  • It is vital to diagnose and evaluate a patient's addiction correctly for the suitable treatment plan to be successful.
  • In the assessment phase, it does not only determine the dependency level, it also assists in identifying any hidden medical or psychological problems or disorder which is co-occurring with drug dependency.
  • Getting stabilized
  • Stabilization is the stage where the patient starts withdrawing from drugs.
  • Achieving sobriety is the main goal for this phase.
  • In order to help with the process, especially in cases where the patient is a heavy drug user, a prescription of medication can be provided.
  • After the patient has reached a certain level of level-headedness and are able to think sensibly, an authentic acceptance and admittance of drug dependency can then commence.
  • The doors to recovery treatment and the user's role in the process are opened with this.
  • Creating an atmosphere for entering into drug treatment
  • Based on a report, a significant number of patients who go through detoxification choose not to obtain supplementary treatment to address substance abuse dependency.
  • While the pattern of thought differs from one patient to another, one things is sure: patients who go through drug-free medical care usually have higher probability for successful drug treatment.
  • There is a significance on addiction education and dedication to sobriety.
  • As soon as this phase has been completed, the individual can carry on with the centre's substance treatment plan in an outpatient or inpatient environment.
