Detoxification in Maryland
The first step in addiction recovery is acceptance. Once a person has accepted the need for professional help and checks into Tranquility Woods, the next step is detoxification. Detoxification from substance abuse is a crucial physical step in the addiction treatment process and is the elimination of toxins built up in the body over years of abuse.
Depending on the individual, addictive substance, the frequency of use, and the duration of abuse, detoxification will vary. At Tranquility Woods, we will coordinate your detoxification care with our partnered detox physicians and programs. To learn more about detoxification for specific drugs or how to get started at our luxury rehab center in Maryland, call 410-885-6173 now.
Symptoms of detoxification
It is extremely important that detoxification is conducted in a controlled and safe environment. Medications and other holistic therapies are used to ease the symptoms and help provide for a more comfortable detoxification. Detox can be a very difficult process and can run the risk of dangerous side effects, including:
- Sweats and chills
- Mood swings
- Headaches, nausea, and stomach aches
- Generalized aches and pain throughout the body
The decision to stop drinking alcohol is not an easy one. Accepting the reality of alcoholism can be even more challenging. However, stopping without a professional medical evaluation and assessment, as well as a competent detox program can be deadly. Alcohol can be one of the most dangerous substances to withdrawal from. As the detoxification process unfolds, the symptoms can become life-threatening. That’s why it’s crucial to have professional medical monitoring during this time.
Alcohol detoxification involves the sudden cessation of alcohol intake. If you’ve been a heavy drinker for a long period of time, this detoxification process can begin as early as 6 hours after your last drink. This detox process is often coupled with the substitution of cross-tolerant drugs that have effects similar to the effects of alcohol in order to prevent life-threatening alcohol withdrawal.
In conjunction with our partners, Tranquility Woods supports the industry standard alcohol detoxification process and withdrawal support to make sure your recovery journey starts as comfortably as possible. Whether you or a loved one is best served by an inpatient program or an outpatient program moving forward, we will make sure you understand the correct option for your individual needs.
Prescription drug detoxification
It is important that every prescription drug detoxification be specific to the individual. Whether you are addicted to Xanax, OxyContin, Ambien, Vicodin or other prescription drugs, we can help get through this difficult process. We support the most effective, safe and comfortable opiate painkiller detoxification available in Anne Arundel County. We use a variety of techniques, including but not limited to medication, infrared sauna therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture therapy, and other proven methods. We strive to make this difficult process as safe and comfortable as possible.
Recreational drug detoxification
As with any detox process, recreational drug detoxification should be specific to the individual. Whether you or a loved one is addicted to cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy, or any other drug, the medical professionals and counselors at Tranquility Woods are here to help you.
We’ll work together to create an individualized plan for your long-term, successful recovery. Our conventional therapies along with our holistic therapies offer our clients the best of traditional and modern, proven therapies to aid in the withdrawal and drug detoxification process.
Always opt for medically assisted detoxification
Detox is potentially a life-threatening process and should be closely monitored by a medical professional to ensure the safety of the person and to help administer prescription drugs that are regularly used to support the symptoms of detox and that ease suffering.
