Quitting Cold Turkey Risks

Quitting Is Hard But Sprout Health California Detox Can Help

If you are at a juncture where addiction has nearly ruined your life, then it is time to find a treatment center and seek health. The will to stop is admirable indeed. However, without the right treatment and supervision, self-detox can end up being deadly. This is not meant to scare anyone from the detox process. It is only meant to convey that a person’s body and mind have built up a need for harmful substances. Sudden withdrawal can send a person’s mind and body spinning out of control. It is best administered in a controlled, clinical environment where therapies and medications can be properly administered.

Most are unaware, but alcohol can be one of the toughest addictions to break free of. Suddenly stopping can cause hallucinations, heart seizure, convulsions, and more. Detoxification has to be a two-phase process. The first phase or recovery is immediately after quitting, and can be the most dangerous. The second phase can occur over a period of months. The brain and body have to get back to a point of functioning normally. Sudden quitting can cause anxiety, convulsions, heart failure, insomnia, seizures, shakiness, nausea, and delirium to name a few symptoms. It can also cause death.

Quitting and the severity of one’s withdrawal symptoms is usually a result of their overall health, extent of their addiction, type of substance abused, and their will to endure treatment. This is important for anyone thinking of enrolling in a detox program to know.

Professional Detox

In a professional detox program, doctors can prescribe medications and treatments that are totally safe and clinical. We make detox more comfortable for an individual, and can help reduce or eliminate a person’s cravings. Detox, properly conducted, requires professional, clinical monitoring. As stated, the results can be deadly otherwise.

Meth Detox

Interestingly enough, there are few physical symptoms present with a person when withdrawing from meth. There are some physical, and some psychological symptoms that are uncomfortable and that can accompany meth withdrawal. The body remember highs and responds to lows. It is this experience that can causes a person to slip into relapse if the urge is too strong. When a person is fighting meth addiction, detox may reveal symptoms of anger, anxiety, fatigue, irritability, lethargy, increased hunger, depression, and thoughts of suicide. You would think that any of these possible withdrawal symptoms would be incentive enough for a person to avoid experimenting with meth.

Heroin Detox

Outpatient and Inpatient treatment is a decision made by the treatment center when a person enters rehab. Inpatient treatment can be intense, as the patient is given medications for detox, and subsequent therapies to help the patient toward recovery. In a controlled setting, clients have zero access to the drug and conditions that allowed them to become addicted. Behavioral therapies, along with experimental therapies, can be applied. Along with medications to assist in detox, patients learn to make the connection between their thoughts and behaviors. Patients are challenged to examine their thoughts about themselves and the world.

Trying to detox from heroin will also produce uncomfortable symptoms that may include chills, diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea, sneezing, insomnia, body pain, sweating, vomiting, and weakness to name a few. Prolonged use of heroin can destroy the liver and kidneys. There is also the risk of spreading HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B and C. Detox should be medically supervised because the experience can be so traumatic.

Then, there are those who must struggle through detox for both alcohol and heroin. If trying to go it alone, it can be twice as difficult as trying to detox from one substance. Co-occurring disorders are not uncommon. These disorders can include depression, bipolar disease, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and schizophrenia. If left undiscovered during the assessment phase, an individual runs the risk of relapse in the future. This is why we are thorough in our initial assessment.

Cocaine Detox

Withdrawal with respect to cocaine may not cause the same withdrawal symptoms as alcohol such as nausea, shaking, and dizziness, but it can be just as physically challenging. Cocaine withdrawal can cause a crash that results in anxiety attacks, fatigue, and irritability. A recovering addict may also experience nightmares, and general malaise. All of this in addition to intense cravings for the drug.

Along with medications, behavioral therapies can help patients make the connection between their thinking processes and behaviors. At Sprout Health California Detox, our goal is to make sure all our patients receive the treatments needed to live free of drug and alcohol abuse.
