Medically-Assisted Detoxification

- managing the risk and discomfort of withdrawal
Detoxification is the process of removing toxins from the body and medically-Assisted Detoxification is a recommended initial step of treatment for a wide range of addicted individuals. For anyone who has developed a substance dependency it is likely to be an essential first step before therapeutic treatment can begin.

Dependency means that the body has adapted itself to tolerate persistently elevated levels of a substance. This means, in turn, that they begin to experience the need to continue taking the drug, simply to feel ‘normal’. Once that substance is withdrawn, dependent individuals will often experience a host of mental and physical health symptoms that are uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. These can include:

  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal distress
  • Appetite changes
  • Irritability and agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Strong drug cravings
  • Pain
  • Disorientation
  • Seizure
  • Coma

The only truly safe way to detox is under the medical supervision and at the Phoenix Individual Retreat this is done under the care of medical and mental health professionals. The observation is helpful to increase safety and comfort levels for people undergoing the painful symptoms and potential medical complications that may result from ending substance use. At times, medications can be administered to ease the process and reduce the strong cravings for the substance that are typically experienced at this point.
