Drug Detoxification Process


Crucial initial steps in deciding how someone's drug treatment plan should look are drug detoxification and withdrawal procedures. Having some time without drug use is significant in bringing addicts to a balanced state of mind because the effects of drugs on the brain usually justify the further use and alter otherwise rational thoughts.

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 have the patient realize the consequences of his or her dependency and eventually lessen and prevent 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.


Detoxification - What Is It?

Detox, as defined by SAMHSA, involves sequences of intervention which are intended to cope with withdrawal signs and critical intoxication. It precedes substance abuse rehab, so it is different than it. Detox might last for a couple of months, but sometimes it can only last a week or less. With the help of detoxification specialists at Futures of Palm Beach, you can successfully treat your withdrawal symptoms and get yourself into a treatment plan that is individually designed with you in mind. Since detox do not deal directly with resolving social, psychological, emotional and cognitive concerns related to drug dependency, it is therefore suggested for patients to obtain long-lasting treatment programmes.


Steps Taken In Drug Detoxification

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

  • Assessment
  • It is vital to diagnose and evaluate a patient's addiction correctly for the suitable treatment plan to be successful.
  • The assessment phase is also useful in diagnosing any co-occurring complications or underlying mental or physical issues that go with the substance abuse, which means that this phase is more than just simple identification of the addiction and its severity.
  • Stabilization
  • Getting stabilized is the process in which the patient begins to withdraw from the substance that they have been using.
  • Obtaining a drug-free state needs to be a goal in mind for this stage.
  • During this stage meds can be prescribed to assist with the addiction process, specifically when the patient used heavily in the past.
  • Real acceptance of addiction can start as soon as the patient has reached "a state of balance" and his/her thoughts become sound.
  • This paves the way for recovery treatment and the patient's part during this procedure.
  • Helping Admission Into Substance 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 reasoning for this differs from person to person, one thing is certain: Often a higher success rates for substance abstinence are always there for those who follow through with drug-free treatment.
  • Addiction education and dedication to sobriety are two things that are stressed.
  • Once detox is over and done with, the patient can continue with the treatment plans that the facility offers including inpatient or outpatient options.
