Rochester drug detox centers can help if you're in a crisis

Drug detox centers are the best option if you or a loved one is trying to overcome drug or alcohol addiction. You may be surprised at how many people need the services of a drug detox center. Sometimes people think they can kick an addiction on their own without any help; research shows more success with recovery and less relapse instances when addicted individuals seek treatment and therapy at drug detox centers.

Drug Detox Centers and the Detoxification Process

Drug detox centers are one of the safest places for an individual to go when they are trying to free themselves from drug abuse. When an addicted person stops using drugs or alcohol, it is not uncommon for the body to experience withdrawal symptoms. This happens because the body has built up a physical dependence on their drug of choice, and needs a steady stream of the addictive substance to be maintained. The brain adjusts the production of chemicals the body naturally produces accordingly. If drug abuse suddenly stops, withdrawal symptoms kick in. Oftentimes, the symptoms of withdrawal will result in relapse because clients are not able to tolerate the withdrawal side effects.

For some, this process can be more intense depending on how long they have been abusing drugs and/or alcohol and the amount they were taking. After long-term drug addiction, physiological healing is an important part of the recovery process. It starts with stabilizing clients, followed by ridding their bodies of toxins. Our detox facility consists of trained and compassionate professionals who can help get these symptoms under control, and get you through the process in a safe environment.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms

Side effects and symptoms of withdrawal include the following:

  1. Muscle and/or body aches and pain
  2. Vomiting or upset stomach
  3. Anxiety, emotional high and lows, depression
  4. Sweating
  5. Dehydration and more

Whether or not someone will experience these symptoms depends on several things, including:

  1. How long the drug or alcoholic substance has been used
  2. How much of the drug is currently in the person's bloodstream
  3. Usage history
  4. Types of substances abused
  5. Age
  6. Overall physical health

Non-Pharmaceutical Therapy Options

In addition to pharmaceutical options, most rehabilitation centers offer additional types of therapy to help patients long-term. There are many effective forms of therapy. Your treatment sessions may include one-on-one, group and family therapy. The healing process involves rebuilding relationships that may have been destroyed due to substance abuse. One-on-one therapy sessions can help you form new coping strategies and skills to help serve you as you grow further in your recovery. In addition, therapy can bring you closer to finding out the root cause of your addition. Group sessions allow clients to build relationships with a group of peers who are understanding and working through similar issues. Educational sessions teach clients how to deal with stressful situations and live healthy and happy lives without turning to substance abuse.
