The first stage in addiction treatment, whether it is for alcohol or drugs, is detoxification, or detox. This process involves letting the body get rid of the drugs in it. Because an abuser’s brain is chemically dependent on the drug, detoxing can be an uncomfortable experience as the body is forced to adapt to an environment without the drug. This period is so uncomfortable for recovering users that some relapse. This is why most recovering users are attracted to luxury drug rehab facilities that not only offer a comprehensive suite of drug treatments, but also offer a much-needed reprieve from the difficulty of detox.
Detoxing at Home – a Deadly Gamble
Is outpatient detox possible? Yes, but it is rarely recommended. Going “cold turkey” on a substance without medical supervision not only leads to seizures, dehydration, and other issues, it can also lead to coma or death. Users who are suffering from severe addictions and have been using for a long time are advised to seek an inpatient detox program, instead of risking the effects of withdrawal. While withdrawal symptoms differ in every drug or alcohol abuser, they are almost always severe.
Length of Detox
Another reason why detoxing should not be done alone is the time it takes to completely detox the body. The length of the detox process can affected by a number of factors, including what substance was abused, the frequency of use, one’s age and medical history, and the presence of underlying mental conditions that often aggravate one’s case. After completing a detox program, it is also advised to consider entering a complete in-patient program to help the recovering user build new habits that can replace substance use.
The Need for Luxury Drug Rehab
Detox can be painful and dangerous if attempted on one’s own. Detoxification is proven to limit withdrawal symptoms, but causes side effects of its own, such as anxiety, insomnia, nausea, mood swings, and body discomforts. Its sensitive nature is why those wanting to quit are advised to go to an inpatient facility where they can detoxify in a safe and comfortable environment.
The discomfort associated with detox is why some recovering users are opting for upscale rehab centers. While pricier compared to outpatient treatment, luxury rehab centers offer not just perks that are not found in most facilities, they offer comfort and 24-hour support to those having difficult time in their detox period. For some, the fine accommodations and low staff-to-client ratio have been integral to their recovery, allowing them to complete the recovery process instead of quitting at the first sign of pain or discomfort.
Completing one’s treatment is only the first step toward an addiction-free life. Adjusting to a life after rehab is challenging to many, especially once external factors start to set in.
The challenges associated with post-rehab life is why most luxury rehab facilities offer aftercare programs. These programs may include sober-living arrangements, follow-up therapies and counseling sessions, and various support groups. It is a good idea to inquire about these programs before you decide to check in.
