Drug Detox for Knoxville Residents Resurgence Behavioral Health

Drug Detox Treatment for Knoxville Residents

Addiction is a disease that doesn’t discriminate and affects thousands of Americans each day and Knoxville residents are not immune to this disease. It is unlikely that you woke up one day and decided that you wanted to enter into an addiction. Chances are you turned to a substance in a moment of need when you felt like you had no other way of coping. The addictive chemical compounds in drugs can quickly lead someone into a life of drug dependence before you know it. Oftentimes, when you are in the depths of your addiction, it can feel like you have no one to turn to for support and are isolated from those you once cared about. Resurgence Behavioral Health is a place where you can eliminate those feelings of isolation and regain a sense of belonging with our counselors and patients who have all, including most of our clinical team, have experienced similar emotions and thought processes as you in your darkest of times while in active addiction. While there is no cure for addiction, there are forms of treatment, with one of the most important treatment methods being developing a strong community of positive support around you. Addiction feeds off our lowest of times when we are at our loneliest. You will be comforted and reaffirmed in knowing that you no longer have to fight through addiction alone, you gain a long-lasting support network that will last even after you complete your drug detox for Knoxville residents.

Just Works

Individualized treatment programs delivered in a comfortable, relaxed setting promote healing in your recovery journey.

What Is The Process Of A Drug Detox?

You are ready to get help for your addiction and want to see the light at the end of the long tunnel of addiction, but you have questions about what your detox process will be like. You may have heard stories from peers or may have seen stories portrayed in the media about detox and seen or heard a grueling process being depicted. This is not the case. Your detox process will be unique to you and is dependent on multiple factors. If you have been a long-time user, use a larger amount to get the desired effect, and have to increase the frequency of your use all to get to the desired outcome then your detox process will look different than someone who has recently started using drugs. With that said, your biochemical makeup also plays a factor in the range of withdrawal symptoms that you will experience. 

This is why our expert team of nurses and physicians paired with our knowledgeable counselors, will create a detox plan based on your specific background integrating your medical history along with your history of drug use. When you arrive, we will complete a full assessment to examine these factors and gain a better understanding of your specific story and needs. From there, we can formulate a detox plan that will be sure to meet all of your recovery goals and have you safely tapering off drugs. Through holistic means of treatment, we will work with you to slowly taper off drugs through methods of medication and natural ways of healing. 

Can I Detox At Home?

Many residents of Knoxville want to know if they can complete their detox process from the comfort of their homes. While we understand your desire to be in an environment that is familiar we strongly encourage patients to complete detox within our facility under the medical supervision of nurses and doctors that specialize in making your detox process smooth while keeping you safe. Our caring team wants to do what we can to have you feeling comfortable and at home throughout this process. 

Similar to how addiction affects each person differently, the same can be said for the detox process. Without knowing what your withdrawal symptoms will look like it is hard for you to be prepared to manage and treat the symptoms from your home without the guidance of a medical professional. As your withdrawal symptoms occur, there is a chance that some may have unpleasant side effects or potentially dangerous adverse reactions. Allowing yourself to be monitored by medical professionals will increase your ability to get through the detox process safely and at ease. 

MAT Drug Detox for Knoxville Residents

 A prolonged period of drug use inevitably will create a physical and emotional dependency on the substance. With some drugs having more severe withdrawal symptoms associated with it that can have dangerous side effects, there are medications that can be prescribed during your detox to help ease your symptoms and reduce your drug cravings as they occur. 

Participating in a MAT (Medically Assisted Treatment) program will provide you with the clinical care of physicians and nurses while receiving medication to lessen the severity of your symptoms. Depending on your need, you may be given medications that work to block the receptors in the brain that send signals producing drug cravings. While others are prescribed to treat severe symptoms that have potentially harmful side effects. As you progress through your detox, the medication dosage will lessen as you heal and the chemicals from drugs are exiting your body. 

The length of time for your MAT program will be dependent on your specific circumstances. Some participate in MAT for only the beginning stages of detox while others require more time.  Throughout your time in MAT, our doctors will be assessing your needs and making revisions to your medication intake. 

Withdrawal Symptoms of Drug Detox Process

Before coming to detox, many residents of Knoxville want to know what they can anticipate for withdrawal symptoms. This is hard to predict ahead of time but we can provide you with some typical symptoms we have seen in our patients that have come through detox thus far. 

  • Nausea 
  • Chills 
  • Mood swings 
  • Irritability 
  • Irregular sleep patterns/insomnia 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • muscle/body aches 
  • Elevated heart rate/ high blood pressure 
  • Hallucinations 
  • Seizures 
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Irregular heartbeat/functioning 
  • Lack of energy/fatigue 

While some symptoms are more severe than others, we highly recommend that you detox under our supervision to ensure your safety. It is important to remember that your detox process will be unique to you and some symptoms may not occur in your case. 

Prescription Drug Detox for Knoxville residents

Prescription drug use is becoming a growing concern for Americans nationwide including residents of Knoxville. You begin taking prescription medications to curb symptoms of a mood or mental health disorder or as a pain management tool and, suddenly, Americans fall trapped to the addictive components.

Prescription drug detox will provide you the space to safely remove prescription drugs from your life while under the watchful eyes of our onsite medical team. During this time, while you are detoxing, we will begin to treat the underlying cause that originated your prescription drug use. Through the support of our medical and clinical counseling team, you will be given new methods of coping that will move you away from the use of prescription drugs to manage symptoms. By learning holistic means of treatment, you will be able to get in touch with your emotional regulation and emotional awareness to identify triggering emotions that have previously led to prescription drug use. 

Opioid Drug Detox for Knoxville residents

The use of prescription opioids took over the pharmaceutical market as a leading way to manage pain for patients. While it has its benefits for some patients needing extensive treatment for pain management, it opened the door for those susceptible to addiction to quickly become physically dependent on them. 

The symptoms of opioid addiction vary from each individual going through detox. With the potential of symptoms becoming severe, we encourage all patients to attend a medically supervised detox. While some symptoms are mild, there is potential for life-threatening side effects to occur. Our knowledgeable team of doctors and nurses are experts in the field of addiction and will be able to treat each symptom that arises while keeping your safety our top priority. 

Heroin Drug Detox for Knoxville residents

Heroin is a highly addictive opiate that has created a growing epidemic across the nation. With many Knoxville residents looking for support in leaving the grasp of heroin behind them, you are highly encouraged to attend a medically supervised detox to tape yourself off of this illicit street drug. 

Similar to the effects of opioids, heroin creates a strong physical dependence within its users and when trying to detox from this drug can produce severe withdrawal symptoms that are unpleasant and potentially dangerous. You will be monitored by Knoxville’s best physicians and nurses while you remove these toxins from your body. Your symptoms that arise will be treated to keep your comfort level at bay and ensure your safety is of utmost importance.
