What is Detox?
Entering detox is an act of courage for those who have an addiction problem. There is often fear about the detox process. And there is concern about whether detox symptoms will be unpleasant or painful.
Detox from drugs or alcohol is elimination of addictive substances from the body. Alcohol or drug addiction results in the body developing dependence on addictive substances. When the substances are reduced and removed during detox, the body has to adjust to the change. Removal of addictive substances can cause temporary physical withdrawal symptoms. Psychological withdrawal symptoms include cravings and anxiety.
During medical detox, a doctor will be able to prescribe medications to ease withdrawal symptoms.
Individual Medical Assessment
The first step in detox is a thorough medical assessment. Medical staff will gather information on medical history and details about the addiction during assessment. This information is used to develop an individualized detox plan.
Medically Assisted Inpatient Detox
During medically assisted detox, patients are monitored 24/7 by medical staff. Medication will be prescribed, as needed, to deal with withdrawal symptoms.
New Start Recovery Solutions fully staffed medical detox facility provides a safe and comfortable environment to go through the process of substance withdrawal. And it allows our patients to focus solely on healing.
Successful completion of detox is not simply a matter of ‘willpower’.
Stopping drug or alcohol use “cold turkey” without medical help is not recommended. In some cases, withdrawal from drugs or alcohol can be life-threatening. Also, even if detox is not medically serious – it is still an enormous challenge. Professional support during detox is almost as important as the detox process itself.
How Long Does Detox Last?
For most, detox is complete is 7 days. However the length of detox depends on the individual and their physical condition.
Variable factors in the length of detox include the type of addiction, the length of time drug or alcohol abuse occurred, the individual’s general state of health – and any underlying or contributing health and/or psychological issues.
After Detox – Next Step, Rehab
A safe and comfortable detox gives patients the confidence needed to face their addiction issues – and begin addiction treatment.
Treatment needs to be readily available. Because drug-addicted individuals may be uncertain about entering treatment, taking advantage of available services the moment people are ready for treatment is critical. Potential patients can be lost if treatment is not immediately available or readily accessible. As with other chronic diseases, the earlier treatment is offered in the disease process, the greater the likelihood of positive outcomes.

It is good to enter detox and remove harmful substances. But if after detox the individual immediately returns to substance or alcohol abuse – then detox was only a temporary solution to address the physical discomfort from an ongoing addiction.
Medical detox is one of the first steps in our continuum of care at New Start Recovery Solutions.
