Detoxification is the elimination of harmful toxins from the body.
Detox from Alcohol
The aim of alcohol detox centers is to assist the patient in becoming alcohol free. Medically assisted detox should help alleviate the physical signs and symptoms of withdrawal. Alcohol detoxing might last between three and seven days. The price for a seven day substance detox treatment is $3000.
Alcohol Affects other Body Systems as well. Aggravation of the intestinal tract can occur along with the erosion of the wind pipe and stomach lining, resulting in vomiting, nausea and sometimes bleeding.
Minerals and vitamins are not absorbed effectively, which may lead to dietary inadequacies in the case of long-term use of alcohol. In these instances we advise intravenous mineral and vitamin therapy.
Detox from Drugs
When you have a drug abuse problem and you enroll in a rehabilitation program, the initial treatment step is to eliminate the substance from the body with medical assistance. Before our clients can start their rehab program they have to have been clean for a minimum of 4 days.
When the individual has stopped using the substance, they will start to react both positively and adversely to the lack of the substance within their system. The positive effects are that your body starts the detox process and your organs will begin to work the harmful toxins out of your body. The adverse effects are that your body will crave the substance because it is going through withdrawal of a substance it had grown accustomed to or even dependent on.
Following the detox program we recommend Sauna Detox Therapy. This is used to divide and eliminate the residual harmful toxins which have been saved up in the body fat.
A medication detox and rehab facility, like Valiant Recovery, can help an opiate addict to end the substance abuse they are afflicted by. You should not attempt drug detox without the assistance of medical professionals because of the risk of serious health issues. Drug withdrawal signs and symptoms range depending on the substance used, but generally consist of:
Withdrawal: Physical Symptoms
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Muscle tension
- Racing heart
- Heart palpitations
- Rigidity within the chest
Withdrawal: Emotional Symptoms
- Social isolation
- Poor concentration
- Head aches
Withdrawal: Dangerous Symptoms
Alcohol and tranquilizers have very severe physical withdrawal symptoms. The sudden absence of these substances within the body can result in seizure, stroke or cardiac arrest in high-risk patients. A medically monitored detox is highly recommended to manage the symptoms of withdrawal and prevent medical complications. A few of the harmful signs and symptoms of alcohol and tranquilizer withdrawal are:
- Delirium tremens (DTS)
- Cardiac arrest
- Grand mal seizures
Addictions to heroin and methadone are very destructive and are medically some of the most difficult drugs to conquer. The physical urges are so intense that many addicted people maintain usage simply to avoid sickness. Our medically aided detox for heroin and methadone addiction progressively tapers an individual off of the substance, while following a nutrition plan which encourages the detox process. Employees at trained alcohol detox centers are available to help you get through any medical problems that arise.
Withdrawal from opiates like heroin and Oxycontin is very uncomfortable, but not not harmful unless they are combined with other drugs. Heroin withdrawal by itself does not produce seizures, cardiac arrest, strokes or delirium tremens.
