Drug Detox Treatment Programs in New Jersey
Turning Point, Inc. Detox Rehabilitation Professionals
When it comes to detoxing from drug dependency it begins with an internal battle to accept help and decide that it is time to turn one’s life around for the better. Sometimes this means taking it upon one’s self and other times it means helping others out of the a hole that they can’t get out of alone. At Turning Point, Inc., our New Jersey rehab center has the experience and knowledge necessary to help those that wish to pursue a life of recovery.
We understand that it is not an easy task, detoxing requires mental and physical discipline because when it comes to addiction it is not only the mind that creates a dependency. While one’s brain chemistry does change when it comes to drug dependency, the body also goes through shock when it becomes dependent on a certain drug to function. This is where we come in!
Call our rehab professionals today at (973) 380-0905 to begin recovering from drug dependency.
The Detoxing Process
Withdrawal is a very real term that many addicts fear when considering detoxing from their specific drug of choice because at times it can be a painful and stressful process that only goes away with time. However, it can be dangerous to do this on one’s own because if the physical dependency to a drug is too strong it can become a life threatening process due to the body’s withdrawal from alcohol or drugs
Depending on the individual’s dependency level there are typically three options associated with detoxing: ‘cold turkey’ (the sudden stopping of drug use), short-term medicated treatment, and long-term medicated detox. Medicated detox must be supervised by a professional as these could lead to other forms of addiction and cold turkey detoxing is recommended to those whose dependence does not exceed a certain level.
To avoid dangerous detoxing methods it is important to recognize the base withdrawal symptoms and to understand what is needed to help the body transition into its drugless state.
Common withdrawal and detoxing symptoms include:
- Abundance of Yawning
- Gastronomic Distress
- Body and Muscle Aches/Spasms
- Increased Water of the Eyes
- Running Nose
While more serious symptoms include:
- Hallucinations and Psychosis
- Delirium (Confusion)
- Excessive Vomiting or Gastronomic Distress
- Being a Threat to Themselves or Others
An individual’s dependency has to do with various factors like the length of their addiction, the substance they were addicted to, any substance combinations, and the pre-existing physical or mental conditions.
