Detoxification Rehab Centers South Dakota helps clients take the first step toward recovery from substance dependency by using safe, supervised medical facilities and custom-created detox procedure to guide their clients through withdrawals. Detoxification, or detox, eliminates collected substances and cleanses them from the body. Detox shouldn’t, however, be mistaken for drug and/or alcohol rehab as detox by itself isn’t the same as rehab. Detox conditions vary from person to person, and most of time the ‘cold turkey’ technique is not appropriate and very dangerous. Although a few people may find the possibility of detox frightening, Detox Treatment Sioux Falls takes precautions to make sure that detox is safe and suitable for each and every patient. To speak with a detox specialist, call Better Treatment Recovery Center at 605 496-0423 immediately!

Types of Detox

The two types of detox most frequently used in detox centers are known as medically supervised withdrawal and social detoxification. Health care professionals could select either type, depending on:

  • the kind of substance being abused
  • period of addiction
  • age of the client
  • psychological state of the patient
  • physical health of the client
  • the atmosphere the experts think will likely be most helpful to the patient

Social detoxification is better suited for people whose drug abuse include the following drugs that typically only cause moderate withdrawal symptoms:

  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • methamphetamine
  • infrequent opioid use
  • occasional alcohol use

This kind of detox generally doesn’t require medications, however, patients are still monitored by medical staff and counselors who manage the patients’ well-being and condition carefully, and also assist the client during the cravings of withdrawal. During social detoxification, patients aren’t quarantined in hospital-like rooms while they detox, but instead are encouraged to live along with and socialize with other addicts that are in recovery. In this type of detox, clients are prepared to live together and work along with other addicts in recovery while they are in a rehabilitation program.

Medically supervised withdrawal is typically recommended for people who are addicted to:

  • alcohol
  • pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
  • barbiturates or sedatives
  • opioids (heroin, OxyContin7, codeine)

The unusually nasty discomfort of withdrawal symptoms caused by these substances can be decreased by specific detox medications that can only be prescribed by a health care professional. People who use drugs in conjunction with alcohol, or who’ve suffered from severe alcoholism, are also advised to undergo medically supervised withdrawal. Medically supervised withdrawal facilities use medications to avoid health complications resulting from withdrawal, like hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and mental issues that may result from withdrawing ‘cold turkey’ from alcohol and other drugs. Medically supervised withdrawal is strongly recommended for anybody who has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has a serious condition, or has been diagnosed with particular mental illnesses.

Better Treatment Recovery Center’s Strategies

Detoxification Treatment Center Sioux Falls, SD understands that different types of drugs result in numerous and varied withdrawal symptoms.

Take the First Step

For many people, detox is the most important first step towards recovering from addiction, however, it’s just a first step, and doesn’t take the place of a rehabilitation program. Most detox facilities do not offer reinforcement after the detox treatment, but Rehabilitation Addiction understands how easy it can be to relapse without any treatment after getting clean. Detox in combination with rehabilitation for addiction makes Detoxification Rehab Centers South Dakota an extremely positive first step. Total recovery is attainable, and detox is an essential beginning to the rehab process if followed by a treatment program, such as Intervention Services Addiction.
