Inpatient medical detoxification relieves the body of harmful toxins and safely breaks the physical hold that substances have on the body and brain.
As detox commences, withdrawal symptoms start. Although it depends on the substance, they usually include headaches, sweating, sleeping problems, nausea, shaking, and hallucinations, between four and twenty-four hours since the last use.
Experiencing these symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable and unsettling.
However, our team of medical professionals oversees the detox process, ensuring that our clients remain as comfortable as possible.
At NPAC, we offer a wide variety of rehab programs. Understanding that there is no one fit for all when it comes to recovery, we consider numerous factors before administering treatment including the substances you use, severity of dependency, and your overall health. Reviewing these ensures that our clients get bespoke treatment program based on their exact needs.
Including detox programs and mental health care, our treatment programs enable many to secure their long-term recovery.
To offer insight into our detox programs, we have provided some useful information below.
During opioid detox, physical withdrawal symptoms usually begin twelve hours after the last consumption of the substance. Typically peaking after three days, symptoms often last up to seven days but rarely exceed that timeline. They may include:
At NPAC, we use medications such as methadone and buprenorphine to ease your body through the withdrawal process slowly. We can also use other medications such as clonidine and anti-emetics to combat some of the side effects.
Despite being legal and socially acceptable, alcohol is highly physically addictive. Unmedicated alcohol detox can be difficult and life-threatening in some circumstances due to risk of seizures. Withdrawal symptoms include:
These symptoms typically begin eight hours after the individual’s last drink and last up to seven days.
We administer FDA-approved medication during the detox process to help your body safely return to its natural state. During this process, our staff closely monitor your condition and to make sure that your health isn’t at risk.
Methadone is used to treat opioid addiction – these are substances such as heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone. Although it’s a useful medication, it is still addictive and withdrawal can be very uncomfortable.
At NCAP, we are one of the few centers that can support those reliant on doses of up to 225mg.
Withdrawal symptoms usually begin after twenty-four hours of the last-used dose and often resemble flu-like symptoms with users experiencing:
Lasting for three to six weeks, we use graduated amounts of medication to slowly wean our clients down to stop them going into acute withdrawal.
These popular sedative drugs are extremely widely prescribed for a variety of conditions. However, they’re seriously physically addictive and detox without medical intervention can be fatal. Withdrawal symptoms often include:
We utilize a tapered dose of benzodiazepines to stabilize our clients and gradually reduce their dependency with minimal risk to health.
In addition to overseeing alcohol, opioid, and methadone detox, we provide clients with treatment plans for other types of drug treatment, including:
During inpatient medical detoxification, our experts assess the type of substance the client is addicted to, the duration of use, and their average dosage. General health is also reviewed to ensure that clients are fit to progress through treatment.
Our team can design a suitable treatment plan that eases them into health and sobriety by reviewing these factors.
