How Can Our Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs Help You?
Our 3-Level Treatment Process
During evaluation, a staff member will assess your state and craft a unique program of recovery for you. We will find out the types of drugs and how often you used in order to set you up on the safest path possible. A doctor will also look for possible co-occurring disorders, or the presence of a mental illness that could impact your recovery. We treat mind, body, and spirit so this thorough evaluation will set you on the right path.
The stabilization process is where we will medically manage all of your withdrawal symptoms experienced during your separation from substances. Stabilization can sometimes be a difficult time but your safety and comfort are of the highest importance to us at Compass Detox. During this time you’ll have access to all of the amenities available at our facility to keep you entertained. Our staff will be available around the clock during the stabilization process if you need any assistance.
Compass Detox focuses on the detoxification process to treat withdrawal symptoms to the best of our ability, so we direct you to outside help for aftercare. If you haven’t already made arrangements, towards the end of your treatment at Compass Detox, you will work with a staff member who will help with your decision and eventually your transfer to the facility of your choice.
What Is Alcohol and Drug Detox Treatment?
You’ve definitely heard the term “detox” thrown around, but have you ever known what it actually means? You are not alone. “What is detox?” is a common question asked by people addicted to drugs and alcohol and their loved ones.
There are several different types of medical detoxification, including detox from alcohol, opioids, prescription medications, amphetamines, cocaine, etc. When an individual requires detoxification from drugs, the individual’s drug intake is stopped fairy abruptly. Then, the individual is given medication that tempers the less severe symptoms and prevents the more dangerous symptoms before they arise.
At Compass Detox, the program starts with an evaluation. During this time, we check the patient’s vital signs and determine the amount of medicine they will require. The dosage will then be reduced significantly each day, and in many cases, by the end of five days, the patient will be completely detoxed.
Our approach to helping clients detox from opioids is to replace the illicit opioids with prescribed opioid medications. Then, we keep the patient on the medications while working together to stabilize them during recovery. This process is often also referred to as harm reduction. Our opiate detox program covers:
The medications used to stabilize a patient are much safer than illicit opioids and may allow the patient to avoid problematic withdrawal symptoms. Opioid withdrawal often means the onset of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, which is why medical detox is preferred.
Benefits of Substance Abuse Detox
Detox is often the first step in recovery for people with severe addiction issues. This is due to withdrawal symptoms that can be intense and painful. Without the supervision of experienced professionals, withdrawal can be an unpleasant part of the recovery journey. In addition to the support of professionals, other benefits of substance abuse detox include:
- Medication-assisted treatment – The medication that our staff provides eases withdrawal symptoms and allows you to focus on your recovery.
- A safe environment – Our detox center provides the ideal setting to overcome the detox process.
- Peer support – As you progress through detox, you’ll bond with other people who are enduring the same process.
