Detoxification is the first step towards recovery. Detoxification from drugs or alcohol requires skilled medical assistance. There are various drug detox clinics in California that are designed to aid physical and mental detox from substances. But, not many clinics administer medications for client’s pain management. At New Spirit easing physical pain gains utmost significance during detoxification process. We strongly believe that this will ensure the patient’s journey towards recovery better and easier. Detoxification from drugs or alcohol comes with mild to acute mental and physical stressors. Also, Quitting cold-turkey, specifically alcohol, a benzodiazepine or an opiate can be highly risky and sometimes fatal too. Skilled-medical assistance during this detox process can limit the stressors to bare minimum. In such cases, the road to recovery can be more promising too. It is advisable, therefore, to prioritize the clients’ comfort and safety while undertaking this process. At New Spirit, we take utmost care to ensure the client’s well-being, safety and best interest.
Varied drugs can have varied withdrawal symptoms, physically and mentally, during the detox process. Some drugs can have larger psychological withdrawal symptoms and some others can have larger physical withdrawal symptoms. Among the various drugs with acute psychological withdrawal symptoms includes cocaine, crack, or amphetamines and they are termed as stimulants. The detoxification process for these stimulants has recorded higher chances of relapse owing to the severity of psychological withdrawal symptoms. For stimulants such as cocaine and meth, the impact is almost immediate and as soon as the high fades, the withdrawal symptoms will pop-up. Heightened anxiety, irritability and depression could be some of the symptoms. Also, this is accompanied by an intense craving for more. There are numerous instances of users spending irrationally for getting another fix. The chances of binge consumption are also higher. Hence, there is a high need for intervention through drug-detox clinics. Please contact us for any assistance and we will be glad to help you.
The substance Opiate has emerged as a global disaster lately. Opioids include heroin, prescription painkillers, fentanyl, and carfentanil. In the year 2017, in the United States, approximately 45000 people succumbed to accidental death due to opiate-substance overdose. Unlike the stimulants, the opioids can be psychologically and physically addictive. The withdrawals symptoms for opiates too vary based on short-acting opiates and long-acting opiates. The former can start as early as two hours after the last use and the latter can start after several days of drug use. For an opioid, the severity of withdrawal increases as time fades. Crippling anxiety, nausea, cold sweats, intense cravings, restlessness, diarrhoea, vomiting, frequent sneezing, abdominal, muscle and joint pain are some of the predominant withdrawal symptoms. Hence, detoxing without skilled-medical assistance can increase the chances of failure or relapse. At New Spirit, we administer adequate medications to tackle chronic pain management. This will ensure constant supervision, increased comfort and higher chances of success in the users’ attempt for opiate detox.
Benzodiazepines (such as, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium) are categorized as CNS (Central nervous system) depressants. These pills, when administered by skilled practitioners, are highly beneficial to ease the symptoms associated with anxiety and panic disorders. Also, in such cases, they are consumed for short-term. Contrarily, benzodiazepines become one of the highly abused drugs for recreational purposes which can further develop into addiction. Benzodiazepines withdrawal symptoms are similar or worse than that of opiates. They are alarmingly life-threatening. The symptoms include seizures, or even heart or brain failure. Hence, it is highly recommended to undergo benzodiazepine detox under skilled-medical assistance at detox-centers.
