Drug Detox Henderson Nevada Resurgence Behavioral Health

Best Drug Detox Program for Henderson Residents

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol can be an intimidating prospect for many people who have a substance use disorder, and the thought of going through withdrawal may make people avoid or put off getting help for their addiction.

If you need help with quitting drugs and do not want to suffer through your withdrawal period, a professionally administered medication-assisted treatment (MAT) detox program in accredited treatment centers in Henderson NV is the safest and most effective means of detoxing. The MAT treatment programs found in Resurgence rehab centers in Henderson are designed to not only help you remain medically stabilized and safely manage the side effects that come up as the drugs leave your system but will also address psychological issues and provide medications and medical care to help you through this difficult time without suffering needlessly.

Addiction Treatment that
Just Works

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

What is Drug Detox Like?

At Resurgence rehabs in Henderson, each patient will first go through a screening process so that we can get to know all about you, your addiction, your history of substance abuse, and your physical and mental health. This involves a medical examination, a psychological screening, and an in-depth interview. The more we can learn in this first step, the better we will be able to customize your treatment plan, including adding dual diagnosis treatments for mental illness, taking past traumas and medical issues into consideration, and understanding more about you as a person. We want to help you succeed, so being honest and forthcoming in this stage of treatment is beneficial.

Once this assessment is over, we will check you into our drug detox facility to begin your substance abuse treatment. You will move in full-time, removed from any external temptations and triggers so you can focus on your own wellness and healing. The room is comfortable and home-like, with a full-sized bed so you can relax in peace. We provide healthy and balanced meals, taking possible nutrient deficiencies into account and keeping you hydrated as you detox.

The actual detox process varies from person to person, as does the timeline. Because everybody is different, and different drugs create different withdrawal symptoms, we individualize your treatment and do not guarantee a certain “deadline” for detox completion. Our goal is to ensure you are safe, healthy, and ready to move on before you go into your rehabilitation program. Each patient will receive medical treatments if necessary. You will be provided with specific, FDA-approved medications to not only relieve the uncomfortable pain, aches, anxiety, and restlessness that come with detox but also ensure you remain safe, as detoxing from some drugs may result in seizures or other serious issues if not treated medically.

Therapy and counseling are also provided right away so that you can begin to address the underlying causes of your addiction and work through any difficult emotions and thoughts without suffering.

Some people may choose to detox without the use of prescription medications, and if it is medically safe, we will help you do so, providing the same medical oversight and care, as well as psychiatric care and therapy as we do for our other clients, ensuring you remain safe as you detox.

All treatment at Resurgence recovery center facilities in Henderson is provided by trauma-informed staff, meaning they will take your past experiences into account, and will never force you to do anything you do not want to do. We believe in communication, collaboration, and open conversations with our patients, answering any questions and obtaining your consent before moving forward with treatments. We want you to always feel safe and in control of your own treatment while in our facility.

Why Choose a Medical Drug Detox Program

The benefits of choosing a medical (MAT) drug detox program in Henderson NV include:

  1. Not suffering needlessly during your detox as medications will relieve withdrawal symptoms
  2. 24-hour medical oversight to make sure you remain safe, including psychiatric help for those who need it
  3. Therapy and counseling are provided for emotional support and integrated treatment that provides coping tools and addresses underlying issues
  4. FDA-approved prescription doses of medications will not create a new addiction
  5. Persons with co-occurring mental health conditions or mental health disorders are treated through dual diagnosis treatments that may include psychiatric medication and specific therapy
  6. Moving into a 24-hour detox facility will keep you away from drug dealers, enablers, and other temptations, stress, and issues that may trigger a relapse
  7. Medical detox from drugs and alcohol, followed by an integrated residential treatment program (inpatient rehab) and outpatient treatment, greatly reduces your chances of relapsing

Drug Detox and Withdrawal Symptoms

It is never recommended to undergo drug detox on your own at home, especially if you have a severe addiction, or have been using opioid drugs, alcohol, or benzodiazepine drugs. The body may go into shock, and you may experience brain chemistry changes that can be dangerous as they can produce seizures, comas, and even death.

During any detox, the body goes through some very difficult processes, lasting for days or even weeks, that produce extreme discomfort, pain, restlessness, and distress. Even the most strong-willed person has a high chance of relapsing as withdrawal symptoms begin to feel impossible to withstand. These withdrawal symptoms vary depending on which drug you are detoxing from, but some common side effects of drug detox include:

  • Strong, sometimes unbearable, drug cravings and urges to use the drug
  • Muscle and bone aches and pain
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • Brain fog or confusion
  • Increase in heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps
  • Mood changes such as mood swings, anxiety, depression, and agitation
  • General flu-like symptoms
  • High fever
  • Shaking or tremors
  • Psychiatric issues like delusions, paranoia, or hallucinations

When you enter a medically assisted treatment (MAT) detox program at Resurgence, you will have full support from our supportive, professional team. We only want to help you succeed at meeting your recovery goals, and we will do all we can to ensure you remain comfortable and move forward in a positive, safe environment.

Tapering off Drugs in a Medical Detox Program

There are many drugs that are not safe to quit “cold turkey” (suddenly, all at once). When this is the case, it is much safer to wean off the drug, slowly reducing your intake over time, following a specific treatment schedule, to reduce withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that require a taper include:

Benzodiazepine drugs

quitting benzodiazepine drugs without a taper may result in seizures, physical and emotional pain, and even death


quitting alcohol cold turkey may result in seizures, delirium tremens, and even death

Opioid drugs

although not often fatal, quitting opioid drugs all at once is physically jarring to the patient and can cause intensely painful and uncomfortable symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, and flu-like symptoms

A taper is also often necessary when the person in detox has been using multiple drugs together. Not only does a taper keep the patient safer, but a more comfortable detox experience reduces the likelihood of relapse in most people, as it reduces cravings and a less abrupt stoppage allows the patient more time to clear their head and work through the underlying psychological issues attached to addiction.

How Long is Detox?

Detox is different for every person, as it depends on your physiology, your mental state, and which substance(s) you are detoxing from. The majority of people will begin to experience their withdrawal symptoms within a few hours or days of their last use, and these feelings will escalate to a peak at around 72 hours, after which, they will begin to feel a bit better every day.

Generally, a detox program lasts a few days to a couple of weeks, but those quitting benzodiazepines and opioids can expect a longer period, as withdrawal symptoms for these drugs tend to return for weeks or even months after detox. Once you have completed your drug detox in Henderson Nevada and are feeling stable, you will usually move directly into rehab. The details of your rehab program will have been discussed and agreed upon with you beforehand so there will be no surprises as you move forward in your treatment.

Does Insurance Cover Drug Detox?

Yes, insurance covers rehab and drug detox. Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) state that addiction and mental health care are essential health services, it is important to note that individual insurance companies may cover different treatments and medications, so you may want to verify your insurance before entering treatment. We are pleased to offer payment assistance in the form of payment plans for our cash-paying clients.
