Services For Withdrawal In Detox

St. Jude Retreats Can Ease Your Worries About Withdrawal And Detox

Do I Need Detox To Overcome Withdrawal?

The decision to seek assistance with a substance use problem is a step toward to getting your life back under control. Unfortunately, it can also be a time of high anxiety and stress as you look for the right detox center to meet your needs of withdrawal and detox.

Detox is the process of removing the chemical toxins that have collected in your system from your drug and alcohol use. Suddenly stopping alcohol and drug use can cause withdrawal symptoms during detox that are uncomfortable and painful. Withdrawal symptoms may be psychological and physical and may include sweating and chills, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, anxiety and in some cases seizures. As you consider the best detox for you, also consider the detox that is going to keep you comfortable.

There are many different options for detox including medical and nonmedical, outpatient and inpatient. Nonmedical detox is a holistic approach that uses acupuncture, meditation therapy, vitamin therapy and yoga. This method of detox uses natural energy to redistribute discomfort and pain. This approach works for some but it does not work for everyone.

Another method of detox is traditional inpatient hospital medical detox. Traditional inpatient hospital medical detox has been seen as ineffective at managing patient's withdrawal symptoms and at giving patients a feeling of security and comfort. In traditional hospital medical detox, patients are kept on psychiatric floors or units, or they are kept on lockdown or in isolation. Patients are not allowed any personal items in detox and they are restricted from outside contact.

Additionally, the oral medication that is used does not address withdrawal symptoms adequately during detox. Patients have reported that they were uncomfortable without any relief. Many in the treatment industry believe that some discomfort is a deterrent to future drug use, but there is no research that supports this idea.

What Can I Expect From A Detox Program?

IV therapy medical detox is regarded by physicians as the best method managing withdrawal and detox. IV therapy medical detox is administered by a board certified and licensed physician with experience in critical care. Patient care is monitored by registered nurses with experience in ER and ICU care. Intravenous therapy is important because it allows the doctor to make changes to the medication protocol as needed for an immediate impact that meets the withdrawal symptoms. Patients are kept comfortable and as a result are able to complete the detox process.

After you have successfully completed detox, it may be necessary for you to enter a program that can help you rebuild your life and achieve long term results. St. Jude Retreats offers a non-treatment program designed to help people successfully implement self-directed change. We are not a 12 step program and we do not use replacement therapy medications to help our guests. Rather, we developed cognitive behavioral education based on the latest research in neuroscience. It guides guests to reevaluate their choices and habitual thoughts and behaviors to identify problem areas and implement changes. Our guests learn to develop habits and behaviors that are positive and that bring enrichment to their life. Guests discover that they can have long term success and live their lives permanently free from drug and alcohol use.
