Do You Need a Medically Supervised Detox?

Most substance abusers will have had times in their life where they were able to quit the addiction for a few days, weeks, or even months. This means that the person will have already dealt with withdrawal symptoms, and they may have done this without the help of anyone else. There are some good reasons though, for why the individual might want to choose a medically supervised detox including:

  • · Just because the individual was able to detox safely without help before does not mean that they will be able to do so now. Addiction is a progressive illness, and if it has been a long time since the individual last went through detox, things may be worse this time.
  • · Those people who have been heavy users of alcohol or barbiturates over a long time may be at risk of a particularly severe form of withdrawals known as delirium tremens (DTs). These symptoms are very serious and can be potentially life threatening. It is therefore vital that anyone who is at risk of DTs has their withdrawals supervised. It is also recommended that those people who have ever had a seizure should choose this option as well.
  • · The majority of people who make their mind up to quit alcohol or drugs will never make it past the withdrawal stage. This is not so much because the withdrawals are particularly uncomfortable, they are rarely worse than a mild flu, but because the individual knows that they can end their discomfort at any time by giving in to the cravings. When the individual enters a medical detox they can be protected and supported, and this greatly increases the likelihood that they will succeed.
  • · By entering a supervised detox in rehab, the individual will be able to start on the treatment programme right away. This will save not only time, but also it will mean that the person can pick up tools for dealing with their withdrawals.
  • · It is generally much easier to deal with withdrawal symptoms in rehab because there will be pharmaceuticals and other treatments available to make the process easier.

There are some good reasons for why you should choose a medically supervised detox. This is something that you can undergo in hospital, in a rehab, or even as an outpatient in your home. Call us now to hear about your options.
