Doctor speaks to her patient at a medical detox centerWhile dealing with a significant addiction to drugs or alcohol, your ability to concentrate has limitations. By the time you decide to stop using your drug of choice, those limitation increase, plus you face the dreaded withdrawal process. Depending on your drug of choice, the withdrawal symptoms coming your way bring danger with them. For this reason, we implore you not to attempt to quit “cold turkey” and try to go through detox on your own. Getting help from a medical detox center is a far better option.

About Withdrawal Symptoms

Before we discuss the Green Mountain Treatment medical detox center in New Hampshire, we want you to understand how dangerous withdrawal can be. If someone has a substance abuse issue such as heroin or fentanyl, then they face significant withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Problems with their blood pressure and heart rate
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting
  • Severe muscle cramping in some regions of the body
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Mental health problems like increased anxiety and depression
  • Tremors, convulsions, and hallucinations

Any of these symptoms could cause significant issues. The fact that most people will encounter many, if not all these symptoms, is downright scary. Therefore, help from a medical detox center is a better alternative to any self-help methods of detox.

What to Expect in a Medical Detox Center

A medical drug detox should be preferable to any other detox solution. What takes place in a medical detox center is just as important as what takes place during therapy. In our medical detox center in New Hampshire, we place the client’s safety above everything else.

With that in mind, we offer a wide range of detox options. If we feel the client can detox naturally, we can provide holistic detox options. That gives them another resource for addressing their overall well-being while their body detoxes. Unfortunately, clients with a severe addiction problem usually need more than a holistic detox approach. They need a medical drug detox.

Under the care and monitoring of medical staffers, clients get time to go through detox. As long as progress is forward without discomfort, the client is left to detox as naturally as possible. Should they begin to show signs of pain and discomfort, the facility’s doctor has the option to step in and help. That help would likely come in the form of relief medications to the extent a client needs them. The entire process continues until the client exhibits diminished cravings and a clear mind.

After Detox

After a successful stint in a medical detox center, the client can transition into an inpatient facility to begin therapy. With a clear mind and body, the client should be receptive to what a therapist might demand during treatment. This is the time when the client’s awakened senses should lead them to the truth about their addiction. A clear understanding of why they abuse substances holds the key to the client building better coping skills. Without better coping skills, relapses become a certainty.
