Outpatient Detox Treatment Program
Individualized Treatment Programs
We believe that the key to long-term success in sobriety and addiction-free living is the understanding that each individual is different and requires their own treatment program that is tailored to their specific needs, and not an overgeneralized approach. We use several techniques to treat drug addiction and place a high value on treatment with the patient’s unique issues in mind, no matter what drug it is.
Addiction starts with USE which turns into ABUSE followed by CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY.
A person becomes physically and psychologically dependent on a substance and the chemicals in the brain that the substance induces. Over time, the addict or alcoholic ingests more and more of the substance to keep up with the body’s demand, and it starts to adjust to the chemical imbalances.
Eventually, the damage done to the body gets worse as the drugs cause damage to brain and organs (liver, heart, kidneys, lungs). Because the substance becomes so ingrained as part of the person’s body, once it is taken away it can cause significant withdrawal symptoms and sometimes even seizures or death.
When an addict or alcoholic decides to stop their substance of choice, the body reacts in a way that it would if you were to deprive it of food or water. This is what leads to withdrawal and all of the unpleasant symptoms associated with it.
This means that sometimes the withdrawal process can be extremely uncomfortable, dangerous, and even life-threatening. Included in our program is a complete medical evaluation, EKG, and blood work to determine if you have any health problems which could complicate the detoxification process.
As always, the medical detox process will vary on the individual, so a comprehensive program that is matched to the needs of the patient is a top priority.
