What is the Importance of Alcohol Detox Centers?
A common addiction that many people fall into is alcoholism. It starts out innocuously enough. Maybe they’ll have a glass of wine at dinner.
Maybe they’ll have a cold beer after work. Maybe they’ll have a shot of tequila when they’re out with friends.
Then it becomes two glasses of wine and then it’s a whole bottle. One beer after work becomes a whole six-pack. That shot of tequila turns into a whole bottle.
Most addicts don’t start wanting to be addicts. They simply had a drink and fell down a slippery slope that led them all the way to rock bottom.
In order to climb their way back up, many alcoholics need to undergo substance abuse treatment at a rehab center. One of the first steps after deciding that help is needed is detox.
This is when a person purges substances out of their body. In the context of addiction treatment for alcoholism, it’s when a person purges their body of alcohol so that they enter their rehab program sober.
Understanding the Detox Process
There’s no easy way to say this: drug detox can be incredibly uncomfortable. It can be physically and psychologically draining on patients.
Depending on the drug of choice, a detox program can make a person present with different symptoms. But as painful as going through withdrawal is, it’s a vital step in drug and alcohol rehab.
Alcohol and drug Detox should be done under stringent medical supervision. When done incorrectly or negligently, it can be fatal.
Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
Alcohol has a depressive effect on the nervous system. The brain works overtime to stay alert when there is alcohol in the system. But when the alcohol leaves the system, the brain is still wired to work overtime as though the alcohol is still there or will be soon.
Depending on how long it’s been since a patient has had their last drink, they can present with different symptoms.
After the first six hours of withdrawal, a patient can start to get anxious. Their hands might begin to shake and they may get nauseous and start vomiting. They can start sweating and get headaches.
12 to 48 Hours
Patients can start hallucinating within the first 24 hours and have seizures up to 48 hours after the last drink.
48 to 72 Hours
At this point, a small fraction (around 5 percent) of patients can experience delirium. Those who become delirious can also have a fever, confusion, a racing heart, high blood pressure, and profuse sweating.
Treatment for Alcohol Withdrawal
For the most part, treatment for alcohol withdrawal is minimal unless a patient has severe health conditions. The treatment program for alcohol withdrawal is putting the patient in a room where it’s quiet and where the lighting is soft.
They’re given emotional support, nutritious food, and lots of fluids.
Negative Outcomes of Alcoholism
Alcohol detox can seem daunting. The withdrawal symptoms can seem like they’re worse than having far too many drinks. However, overindulging in alcohol can present a number of health complications, the chief of which is liver failure.
Alcohol can have a negative effect on the liver, and a patient can develop diseases like cirrhosis.
What to Expect at Luxe Recovery’s Detox Center?
You might start to wonder what inpatient rehab is like at Luxe Recovery. It’s possible that you’re nervous about being away from home for a long period of time.
Maybe you don’t want to put your life on hold for something that you’re not sure is even going to help with your addiction recovery.
Luxe Recovery is dedicated to helping you help yourself. If you’re not sure how, here’s a brief overview of what you can expect with our inpatient drug rehab:
Individualized Detox Treatment Plan
Not every addict is the same. They have their own reasons for becoming addicts in the first place and their own nuances, which means that they won’t all respond to the same treatment modalities when seeking drug addiction treatment.
Luxe Recovery understands this and part of our rehab treatment is making sure that each person who comes to us for treatment for their drug dependence gets a personalized treatment plan to make sure that they receive the best care possible.
Comfortable and Safe Detox Environment
Luxe Recovery boasts world-class amenities. In addition to private rooms, patients can have access to game rooms, a recording studio, a fully-equipped gym, a movie theatre, and an onsite chef.
This is so that patients won’t be uncomfortable during their stay and can turn their focus towards their recovery.
Therapeutic and Holistic Approach
Luxe Recovery uses a number of evidence-based treatment modalities such as group therapy, individual therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and others.
Luxe Recovery also believes in holistic treatments. In addition to the modalities above, patients can also avail of yoga and massage therapy to heal not just the mind and the body but the soul as well.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
People who are addicts often have mental health issues. This is either because they use substances to self-medicate existing mental illness or they develop mental illness as a result of their addiction.
Luxe Recovery recognizes that addiction and mental health are intertwined to address mental health issues to foster lasting recovery.
Transition to Ongoing Recovery Services
Fighting addiction does not always end with the completion of inpatient rehab. Many people who complete a program will need continued support afterward so they don’t fall off the wagon.
Luxe Recovery has an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) so that patients can return to their lives while also receiving the care they need to stay sober.
Seek Help Now
The word ‘no’ has been used as a cudgel against addicts since time immemorial. People tell addicts to just say no. Look, if it were as easy as saying no, there’d be no addicts.
But that’s not the only way people use the word ‘no’ against addicts. People say that word when addicts reach out for help.
In their minds, an addict got themselves into their situation, and it’s on them and only them to get themselves out.
That’s not the mentality at Luxe Recovery. Here, we understand that saying ‘no’ can be an impossible task, particularly when the substance you have to say it to is legal, readily available, and everywhere.
You go to a party and people will pop champagne. You go to a barbecue and people will chug beer. The alcohol that you’re addicted to is everywhere.
But we’ll help you. We’ll give you the tools and the skills you need so that saying ‘no’ stops being an impossible task and something that, while difficult, is still doable. Contact us now. We’ll take most forms of insurance.
