HAVE CONFIDENCEUnderstanding the Process

Life certainly brings its own set of surprises. Drug and alcohol detox shouldn’t be one of them. When searching for the best drug detox center, the only one that matters is the one that works. What that means to any one person is different. What we can tell you for sure is that no matter how beneficial any drug detox program claims to be, the final note on detox success is ultimately the patient’s commitment to sobriety and the willingness to endure challenges that test personal resolve.

We Lead by Following Drug Detox Best Practices

Before a patient begins the physical cleansing process at Acceptance Recovery Center, we provide information that explains what to expect – for the one receiving treatment as well as designated family members. Detailed medical assessments are conducted as the means to design the right detox. This can include monitoring of withdrawal symptoms as they arise, recommended therapies to help alleviate them and, in some circumstances, implementing medication-assisted treatment.

Our health practitioners won’t sugarcoat the truth. Instead, they embrace your will to move forward from the past to realize a better future. We’ll be your best advocates. Envisioning your success through drug detox is a given. It’s something you have to believe in as well.


DRUG DETOXPurposeful Rehab Treatment

Depending on the drug of choice abused, the detox program may typically take 7 to 14 days. However, when more than one substance has been abused concurrently or if a patient is exhibiting signs of a co-occurring disorder (when substance addiction and mental illness exist together), the projected timeline for detox may be longer. With crystal meth addiction, detox can last for weeks. With heroin addiction or other prescription medication abuse, acute detox typically lasts 7 to 10 days. But there are other withdrawal symptoms that can last longer.

Known as Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome or PAWS, people can relive the withdrawal process up to two years after their initial drug detox. Some symptoms include agitation, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and insomnia. For this reason, and many more, the right drug detox center will include extended treatment programs that address the emotional aspects of drug addiction and provide the necessary tools to support lifelong recovery.



SUPPORT SUCCESSMedical Alcohol Detox

The risk for relapse is part of the disease of addiction. But with alcohol so readily accessible, the risk for continued use is exponentially greater. While you may have heard the term for quitting “cold turkey” as a viable option to going through a designated alcohol detox program, the outcome can be catastrophic.

The longer you or your loved one has made consumption an ongoing habit, the more dangerous alcohol detox can be. From the time a person takes their last drink, overwhelming withdrawal symptoms can begin within 6 to 24 hours.

Alcohol Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Imagine going through these physical changes without the supervision of healthcare professionals who know how to treat a person undergoing alcohol detox:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Erratic sleeping or insomnia
  • Body tremors or shaky hands
  • Unpredictable changes in blood pressure
  • Irregular or abnormal heart rate

But there are more concerns surrounding alcohol detox that make the case for being part of a medically-supervised treatment program even more compelling. For some, alcohol detox will bring about hallucinations, seeing or hearing people or things that aren’t there. In addition, Delirium tremens (DTs) can arise. The DTs are a life-threatening symptom that causes a heightened state of restlessness and confusion with fever, and can escalate to seizures.

No one should go through alcohol detox alone. Acceptance Recovery Center is here to help and provide each patient with a comfortable yet effective pathway to begin a life of sobriety. Should it be determined that medication-assisted treatment will prove beneficial during alcohol detox, it will be administered and monitored to ensure that patient need is met.
