Best Fort Worth Drug Detox

Addiction , Drug Detox , Drug Rehab Alexa Iocco | September 20, 2021


Drug detox is an important step in every addiction recovery program. You need to remove the drugs from your system to be able to move forward in your treatment with a clear head and to fully embrace the program.

Detox can feel scary or overwhelming, and some people will avoid trying at all out of fear of the unknown. For some drugs, detox can be painful and can even escalate and become dangerous. Many people will try to detox at home but relapse once withdrawal symptoms become too much to handle.

With Resurgence Behavioral Health, we can use a medically assisted drug detox treatment we can provide medications and therapy to help you get through the discomfort and pain, and our medical team will ensure you stay safe throughout the process. For these reasons, Resurgence is the best Fort Worth drug detox center.

Fort Worth Drug Detox Treatment Centers

Choosing a drug detox treatment center is a big step in getting sober. You will want to research different facilities in your area, or you may want to travel to a different city or state so you will have some distance and privacy from the people in your everyday life, avoid the usual triggers and stress, and gain a new perspective on things.

Consider Resurgence for drug detox in Fort Worth. Along with our effective medical detox program, we also have top-tier features like an on-site chef who makes healthy, delicious food, comfortable rooms with full-sized beds and TVs, a gym, nutritional counseling, we allow smoking in designated areas, and we allow you to bring your pet.

Our head nurse on staff is a certified addictions RN, and our clinical caregivers are all highly trained and professional. Over half of our staff members are in recovery themselves, having been through a similar detox and rehab program, and they will be able to understand how you may be feeling. Everybody at Resurgence truly wants to help you, not only to get through your detox but to build yourself back up into the person you want to become.

Why do I Need to Detox Before Rehab?

Almost every addictive substance that creates a chemical dependence will require a detox period for recovery. Detox is important before rehab because:

  • You will be able to focus on your treatment with a clear head in a stable condition
  • You will be able to be fully present during rehab, without worrying about where to get your next fix
  • Psychologically, you will be more ready to take in information and think about the future
  • Your body will be able to begin healing from the damage drugs have done
  • Any co-occurring conditions will be easier to treat without drugs masking your symptoms

What is Drug Detox Like?

The most recommended approach to detoxing is our Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) plan. You will stay in our detox center and be given medications to manage withdrawal symptoms. MAT is especially important for our patients who are addicted to a substance that can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms.

At Resurgence, we strive to provide a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment for each of our patients to navigate their detox. We introduce counseling and sometimes groups into treatment early in the process to help you deal with emotions that may come up. We will personalize the process to suit each of our patients and may include dual diagnosis treatment if co-occurring conditions like trauma or mental health issues are present.

The Importance of Medically Assisted Drug Detox

Physical dependence is what occurs after the protracted use of a drug. The brain forgets how to create dopamine, and because of other physical changes, your body gets used to having the drug in your system just to function normally. When you stop taking the drug “cold turkey”, you will go through mild to severe withdrawal symptoms that can be uncomfortable and even dangerous.

MAT is the most effective method of preventing relapse in these early stages of recovery because it will get you through the most difficult symptoms without suffering needlessly. A supervised detox keeps you safe and manages symptoms like pain, drug cravings, hallucinations, depression, anxiety, restlessness, and more.

Which Drugs are Most Addictive?

Some of the most addictive drugs include:

Heroin and other opioids

  • Cocaine
  • Crystal Meth
  • Alcohol
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Amphetamines
  • Crack

A medical detox is strongly recommended when stopping the use of these drugs to help with the withdrawal symptoms these drugs can cause to keep you comfortable and safe.

Stages of Drug Withdrawal

Drug withdrawal happens in stages. The timeline is not exact, as everybody has a different physical makeup. It can depend on which substance(s) you are detoxing from, how long you have been using, and how much you were using at a time. It also depends on which method you were using (oral ingestion, smoking, injecting, or snorting), and your physical and mental health when you enter detox.

In the first 2 to 12 hours you will begin to feel mild withdrawal symptoms like aches, nausea, or insomnia.

From 12 to 48 hours, through our medical detox program, we can ensure you remain comfortable and stable as your symptoms gradually worsen and you begin to feel anxiety or depression, stronger drug cravings, and pain.

Between 48 and 72 hours is usually when the worst of the symptoms show up. This is the most dangerous period of detoxing, but at Resurgence, we will ensure you remain safe. This is the peak of the withdrawal period.

After 72 hours you will gradually begin to feel better, and more like yourself again. Once you are deemed stable enough, we will help you move into an inpatient rehab program to continue your journey to recovery.

How to Detox from Drugs Safely

In our Resurgence detox facility, we provide around-the-clock medical care. Our highly trained and experienced staff are there for you 24/7, monitoring your progress in case you need anything. There is a nurse practitioner on-site daily to make sure everything is going as it should, and our head nurse is an addictions RN who knows the best and most up-to-date detox methods.

MAT for Drug Addiction

The medications we provide in our Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program are administered at prescription doses, and they are FDA-approved. These medications will keep you safe and comfortable, stop intense drug cravings, and they will not get you high, nor will they create a new addiction.

MAT is a fully integrated treatment program. We introduce counseling at this time to ensure all trauma, anxiety, depression and unwanted emotions are being dealt with properly. Combined with our behavioral therapy and dual diagnosis treatment if needed, MAT will help you deal with all the components of addiction while helping you overcome the physical withdrawal symptoms.

MAT is different from regular detox methods because it focuses on you as a whole person. It will reduce the risk of relapse, improve survival rates and improve the likelihood of you moving on and living a healthy, self-directed life without the use of drugs or alcohol.

Drug Detox Fort Worth

When you are addicted to a drug, detoxing may seem impossible, but rest assured that with our medical detox program at Resurgence, you will be provided with counseling, support, and therapy, alongside the medications that will help you manage your symptoms.

Our caring staff members are available to you 24 hours a day in our detox treatment center. They will be just outside your door no matter what time of day it is to help you with anything you may need, even if you just want to talk.

What do you Do After Drug Detox?

Detox is a short-term solution to substance abuse. It is important to carry on into a rehabilitation program immediately afterward, so you can get to the root of your addiction and find the reasons behind your drug use, and greatly reduce your risk of relapsing in the future.

At Resurgence we have inpatient and outpatient rehab programs, providing a variety of therapy options in a scenic and peaceful atmosphere. With inpatient rehab, you will move into our facility for 30 to 90 days, and along with counseling and group and individual therapy, you will have options like peer groups, vocational training, and life-skills courses to work on your past and present issues, as well as setting yourself up for success in the future.

We have all types of therapy and groups, and we customize your treatment to suit your personality and your goals. If you are not spiritual we will not send you to church, if you want to gain interview and resume building skills we will put you into our vocational training program, and if you want to try something new as you work through past trauma, we may put you into an experiential therapy program. We want you to get as much out of your time with us as you can so that you will be confident in yourself and your recovery skills when you move out of inpatient care.

Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab

Inpatient care is an important step in recovery and is recommended for everybody who has the ability to spend at least 30 days in our residential facility. It will give you the space and time away from your everyday life and stress to work on yourself and focus completely on your own recovery.

For people who have completed an inpatient rehab program or for those who simply cannot be away from their responsibilities at home like family care or work for an extended time, we have outpatient programs. With programs like our Partial Hospitalization Program and our Intensive Outpatient Program, our outpatient care is flexible and can be customized to suit anybody’s lifestyle.
