If substance abuse issues are affecting your life in negative ways, then a detox program can help you.\r\n\r\nThere are many signs that indicate you may need detox, including:\r\n\r\n \tMoodiness when not using the substance\r\n \tCravings for the substance\r\n \tFatigue that isn\u2019t relieved by sleeping well\r\n \tInsomnia\r\n \tAcne or itchy skin\r\n \tWhite or yellow-coated tongue\r\n \tBad teeth\r\n \tIncreased belly fat\r\n \tAbdominal bloating\r\n \tExcess sweating\r\n \tFluid retention\r\n \tCongested sinuses\r\n \tFriends and family asking you to stop using drugs or alcohol\r\n\r\nDrugs That Typically Require Detox\r\nAs well as alcohol, there are a number of drug addictions that typically require detox. For example, we offer programs for all of these drugs including:\r\n\r\n \tHeroin rehab program\r\n \tCocaine addiction rehab\r\n \tMethamphetamine rehab program\r\n \tBenzodiazepine addiction program\r\n \tPrescription opioid addiction rehab\r\n\r\nWhy Supervised Medical Detox Is Important\r\nA medically supervised drug and alcohol detox center is extremely important in the recovery process for a couple of reasons:\r\n\r\n \tIt will help you overcome painful withdrawal symptoms.\r\n \tIt will treat any co-occurring medical or psychiatric conditions you have\u00a0(dual diagnosis).\r\n\r\nYou may feel you have the strength to detox on your own, but that can be very dangerous and sometimes fatal. Detoxing at home often results in relapse.\r\n\r\nDetox is the process of ridding your body of toxic substances. It can be painful and difficult. In some cases (such as with alcohol withdrawal symptoms), the process can also be life-threatening. For this reason, detoxing without medical supervision is risky.\r\n\r\nPeople who detox without medical supervision have a higher risk of unsuccessful detox, making them less likely to try detoxing again.\r\n\r\nSupervised medical detox is a crucial step in addiction treatment. Before entering an inpatient or outpatient rehab program, patients will detox first. This is because it is easier to receive treatment in these programs without an unpleasant withdrawal experience.\r\n\r\nRelying on sheer willpower alone and going cold-turkey can be dangerous. Without supervision, drug addicts trying to quit may experience tremors or signs of brain damage, such as seizures and delirium.\r\nMethods of Treatment at Clarity Way\r\nClarity Way uses a number of methods in our alcohol and drug detox program. We offer:\r\nMedicine Used at a Drug and Alcohol Detox Center Hanover PA\r\nDuring medically monitored detox, a specialized team of physicians, nurses, and therapists offer 24-hour detoxification services. The following research-backed medications may be used:\r\n\r\n\r\n \tBenzodiazepines, antidepressants, and anti-anxiety medication \u2013 These medications are useful for the treatment of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and cocaine addiction. Librium is a benzodiazepine we commonly use for alcohol addiction.\r\n \tOpioids and non-opioid agonists \u2013 Certain opioids, like methadone, can help treat heroin withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Suboxone\u00ae and Vivitrol\u00ae are used for opioid disorders. Non-opioid agonists, such as clonidine, can also help suppress opioid withdrawal.\r\n\r\nAlternative Approaches in Drug and Alcohol Detox\r\nWe also employ a number of alternative treatments when performing drug detox or alcohol detox, including:\r\n\r\n \tBiofeedback therapy\r\n \tMassage therapy programs\r\n \tAcupuncture therapy programs\r\n\r\nThese treatments ease withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, anxiety, muscle tension, and aches.\r\nHow Long Detox Lasts\r\nThere are a number of factors that determine how long your time at a medically assisted drug and alcohol detox center will last. For example, some of these factors include:\r\n\r\n \tDuration of addiction\r\n \tSeverity of addiction\r\n \tWhether alcohol or drugs were used\r\n \tWhich type of drug was used\r\n \tUse of more than one drug\r\n \tPhysical health\r\n \tMental health\r\n \tWeight\r\n \tAge\r\n\r\nGenerally speaking, alcohol or drug withdrawal symptoms can last anywhere between a few days and a few weeks. The first 48 hours of detoxing are when drug addicts and alcoholics experience the most acute withdrawal symptoms. Most drug addiction and alcohol addiction withdrawal symptoms will go away after two weeks. Others are gone in a few days, depending on the substance that was used. Your detox should last as long as your physical withdrawal symptoms are present. It\u2019s important to continue with other treatments after detox because psychological withdrawal symptoms like cravings and depression can last longer than physical symptoms.\r\nThe Drug and Alcohol Detox Center Process at Clarity Way\r\nBefore arriving at Clarity Way, our medical director carefully assesses each client\u2019s situation to determine the best course of care.
