Drug Detox

Before you can move forward with your drug addiction recovery, you must first rid your body of the toxins that have built up during your addiction. Your experience during this highly vulnerable time will go a long way toward determining your success in recovery, so choose your facility wisely. A detox center like Unity Behavioral Health can help ensure a smooth transition into rehab and recovery by delivering the best drug detox experience.

Professional Help is Essential to Deliver the Best Drug Detox

Detoxification is the first and often the steepest mountain for people to climb when attempting to beat an addiction. You must deal with both physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms while trying to break your habit. In many cases, these withdrawal symptoms are painful, debilitating and even potentially fatal. Because of these facts, most people who attempt a drug detox without any professional help end up meeting a quick failure.

At Unity Behavioral Health, we understand how critical the drug detox period is and employ multiple approaches to limit withdrawal symptoms and prepare patients for success in rehab by providing them with the best drug detox possible. A drug detox at Unity Behavioral Health includes:

  • 24-hour medical supervision and care
  • Medically-managed withdrawal
  • Psychological counseling
  • Addiction education
  • Therapeutic massage and chiropractic care

Don’t Face Withdrawal Alone

Many people trying to overcome addiction mistakenly assume that they can do it without professional help. Sadly, a large majority of people who attempt a self-detox are unprepared for the barrage of withdrawal symptoms that accompany the sudden cessation of drug use. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Body pain
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Nausea
  • Delirium
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Shakiness
  • Excessive sweating
  • Disorientation

Faced with these withdrawal symptoms and others, even the strongest and most determined individuals will struggle. In addition, most self-detoxes do not remove access to drugs from a person’s life, which means that it will be easier to give in to temptation. At Unity Behavioral Health, our patients benefit from a 100 percent drug-free environment, peer group participation and the direction of a team of highly-credentialed and experienced addiction care experts watching them around the clock. Each step of your drug detox will be carefully planned and managed to ensure the least amount of pain and maximum success in rehab and beyond.
