Drug Detox in Arizona

A Safer Start to Drug Rehab

Drug addiction must be challenged as soon as possible before it causes serious harm. However, cutting off the use of an addictive drug all at once or “going cold turkey” can trigger unsafe withdrawal symptoms. For many people, the right starting point of a rehab program is drug detox because it provides a safe space to slowly stop drug use safely. 

Decision Point Center in Arizona is proud to offer a medically supervised, safe drug detox program for any patient who needs it. If you or a loved one has a strong addiction to a drug or substance, then please call (844) 292-5010 now to see if our drug detox program could help.

What Happens During Drug Detox?

Drug detox places the patient in a safe, controlled environment with constant supervision from medically trained professionals. The purpose of this supervision is to reduce the risk that the patient will experience any unsafe withdrawal symptoms. Or if such symptoms do occur, the patient will have immediate access to medical care.

To treat withdrawal symptoms, trained detox professionals can administer medication to help the patients safely detox the addiction they are currently struggling with. This method does not cause a sharp rise in the patient’s urge to have another dose, like what would happen if they took the addictive substance unsupervised. On the other hand, it can significantly slow down or minimize the withdrawal symptoms caused by stopping the use of an addictive substance.

The main benefits of drug detox when done by the professionals of Decision Point Center include:

  • Reduced risk of relapsing due to drug cravings during rehab.
  • Higher chance to stay sober for longer when rehab ends.

Hear From Those Who Took their First Step

Who Should Start Drug Detox?

Drug detox is typically recommended for individuals who have developed a physical dependence on drugs and are experiencing withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop using. This can include individuals who have been using drugs for an extended period of time, as well as those who have been using high doses of drugs.

It's also important to consider the severity of the drug use, and whether it's impacting the individual's ability to function in their daily life and relationships. If someone's drug use is causing problems in their work, school, or personal life, it may be time to consider detox.

It's also recommended that individuals who have a co-occurring mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety seek professional help as they may require additional support during the detox process.

Ultimately, the decision to start drug detox should be made in consultation with a medical professional or addiction treatment specialist, who can assess the individual's specific needs and recommend the most appropriate course of action. In the end, physical and mental dependence is dependent on the person and drug. Dependence on a certain substance can be created within 1-2 weeks, so that is why it is important to consult with an expert to determine the right course of action. 

Dangerous substances that often require detox when beginning addiction treatments include:

During the admission process at Decision Point Center, you can discuss drug detox with a member of our team. We can assess the situation and advise you if we think detox will be necessary or not. Everyone who comes to our doors for rehab is seen as a friend in need, so we will make a personalized drug rehab plan for you, whether it involves detox or not.

Why is Drug Detox Necessary? 

People need drug detox because addiction to drugs can cause changes in the brain that make it difficult to stop using the substance without professional help. When someone has been using drugs for an extended period of time, their body becomes physically dependent on the substance. This means that when they stop using, they will experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be uncomfortable or even dangerous, and can make it difficult for the individual to quit on their own. Drug detox is a process that helps individuals safely and comfortably manage withdrawal symptoms, which makes it easier to stop using the substance and start the process of recovery. Additionally, detox helps to cleanse the body of the toxins that have accumulated as a result of drug use, which is an important step in the healing process.

Can You Detox at Home? 

It is not recommended to detox at home as withdrawal symptoms can be severe, and in some cases, life-threatening. Medical supervision is essential to ensure the safety of the individual during the detox process.

After Drug Detox

As mentioned, drug detox is typically the first step in a drug addiction recovery journey. Once it is successfully completed, the next steps in your recovery program can begin. The complete journey will look unique to you because we base it on what you need and prefer. This will include therapy, counseling and other support services to help the individual develop the skills and strategies they need to maintain long-term recovery from addiction.
