Drug Detox Oklahoma City Resurgence Behavioral Health

Drug Detox Program for Oklahoma City Residents

Drug addiction can happen to anybody when the right combination of circumstances presents itself. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or what you believe, if you begin to abuse drugs, they will eventually get a hold on you that you will need professional help with. To quit drugs once you are addicted, a detox period will need to occur before rehab, so you will be able to focus on your treatment with a clear head, and so you are stable and healthy enough to rehabilitate and be fully present during rehab. Co-occurring conditions will be easier to treat without drugs masking your symptoms, and psychologically, being clean of all drugs and alcohol will allow you to be able to plan for the future and create goals. For the best drug detox, contact Resurgence Behavioral Health. 

Addiction Treatment that
Just Works

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

Some of the reasons people begin drinking and abusing drugs include money or relationship problems, stress, trauma, a recent loss, or receiving a medical diagnosis. Some people have been surrounded by drug use their entire life and it has been normalized, and others find themselves using drugs in social situations or when partying, eventually being unable to stop. Self-medication with drugs for pain or a mental illness can quickly develop into a cycle of addiction.

The drug detox program In Oklahoma at Resurgence Behavioral Health will help you detox in a safe, measured manner. It is medical detox, in which prescription medications are provided to help with withdrawal symptoms like pain, restlessness, and anxiety while stopping drug cravings. This treatment will help you get through this difficult time without suffering needlessly.

Your health and progress will be monitored 24 hours per day, and you will have a counselor to help you with unwanted thoughts and emotions that may come up. We will treat you as a person, with respect and dignity as you detox. We know that you are a unique, intelligent individual who needs extra support, and who is capable of making a positive change. We will help you do this.

When is Drug Detox Necessary?

Drug detox is necessary when you are displaying signs of physical and psychological addiction to a substance. Our drug detox for Oklahoma City residents can help you move past your physical addiction. In an integrated medical detox program, you will have behavioral therapy and counseling introduced early in the process as well to work on the psychological aspects, getting to the underlying root of the issue. With professional help, you can regain control over your life, make amends to those you may have hurt, and remain in recovery for the long term.

Commonly Abused Drugs

Both legally obtained and illegal street drugs can become an issue when abused. Some of the most abused drugs include:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids (heroin, fentanyl, hydrocodone, oxycodone, etc)
  • Tranquillizers, Barbiturates and Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, etc)
  • Stimulants (meth, cocaine, crack, Adderall, Ritalin)

Common Side Effects of Drug Withdrawal

When you are addicted to drugs, the drugs make physical changes to the brain’s reward system, creating dependence. When you stop using the drugs, your body goes through chemical processes as your brain recalibrates itself, producing withdrawal symptoms.

These symptoms can vary depending on factors like which drugs you were taking if you were mixing them with alcohol or other drugs, and your level of addiction, but in general, the most common side effects of drug withdrawal are:

  • Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal distress
  • Tremors in hands and feet
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Body and muscle aches
  • Drug cravings
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Seizures

The psychological portion of addiction may have you obsessed with obtaining, using, and recovering from the drug, thinking about where the next hit will come from. You might begin to act in ways you normally wouldn’t like blacking out, violent behavior, or doing things for money or drugs like sex work, stealing, or manipulating people with no regard for the negative consequences of your behavior.

Drug Detox Oklahoma City

Detoxing from drugs does not have to be painful, scary, or traumatic. At Resurgence, we offer a Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program that combines behavioral health, dual diagnosis, and clinical care for a whole-patient-centered treatment, which will set the foundation for long-term, sustained recovery.

In a MAT program, medications are given in prescription amounts under the supervision of a doctor. They are used to satisfy the body’s drug cravings, but without any euphoric high, to safely stop withdrawal symptoms without creating a new addiction. Thus, they are effective in helping decrease the risk of relapse.

MAT concentrates on the whole patient, instead of focusing only on the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Because of this, it has been proven to improve a patient’s survival rate, and their ability to live an autonomous, self-directed life, without the use of drugs.

There is also the option to do a social detox. During social detox, you will not be given any medicine to help stop withdrawal symptoms, but you will stay in our detox facility, monitored by medical staff in case of emergency. We will provide counseling, progress and health are monitored, and you will get the support you need to get you through your detox without medication.

Alcohol Detox Oklahoma City

Alcohol is an unexpectedly dangerous substance to quit on your own. Besides extreme discomfort and pain, withdrawal symptoms can escalate to delirium tremens (also known as the DTs). Delirium tremens is a group of symptoms including hallucinations, confusion, agitation, sensitivity to light and sound, and high fever, and can lead to seizures and even death if untreated. Medical detox with 24-hour medical supervision is strongly recommended when you stop drinking.

How Long Does Detox Last?

Because everybody is different, and different drugs affect each person differently, it is difficult to place a specific timeline on how long detox lasts. It can depend on factors like:

  • What drug you are detoxing from
  • Whether you mixed it with other drugs or alcohol
  • How much you were using at one time
  • How frequently you were using
  • The method of drug use (smoking, injecting, oral ingestion, snorting)
  • Your physical and mental health at the time of detoxing
  • Genetic and physical factors
  • Your history of drug use
  • Your mental state when you enter detox

Generally speaking, withdrawal symptoms won’t take long to start showing up (within hours) and will start out mild but gradually become stronger over the next few days. The peak usually happens at around 72 hours, after which you will begin to feel a little bit better each day. The total amount of time a person spends in our detox facility at Resurgence can range from a few days to a couple of weeks.

When we do our physical assessment during intake, we will be able to give you a clearer picture of what to expect, so that there are no surprises.

Does Insurance Cover Drug Treatment?

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), mental health and addiction services are counted as essential health benefits. This means that drug treatment is covered by insurance, although the exact medications and treatments covered will vary between different providers, so it is best to verify your coverage before moving forward with treatment so there are no surprises. If your insurance fails to cover all treatments, or if you do not have insurance, we may be able to create a cash payment plan. We want to help you and will work together with you to find a solution.
