Advantages of Medically-Assisted Detox Program

Aug 16, 2022 | Rehab

We have often heard people saying they want to quit alcohol and/or drugs but aren’t able to because of the withdrawal symptoms. They are right about this one because the withdrawal symptoms aren’t easy to handle, especially if you are suffering from severe addiction. 

Professionals at rehab centers can help in such situations. If you are unable to handle the withdrawal symptoms, the professionals can prescribe medications for safe detox. Apart from this, a medically-assisted detox has several other benefits too. 

Benefits of Medically-assisted Detox

Medically-assisted detox not only saves you from the intense withdrawal symptoms but has additional benefits like: 

  1. Ease and smoothens the withdrawal symptoms

Even if you are addicted to prescription drugs, there are medicines available to ease the withdrawal symptoms like drug craving, nausea, insomnia, abdominal cramps, sore muscles, anxiety, etc. A few medicines which can be prescribed are: 

  • Suboxone 
  • Naloxone 
  • Methadone 
  • Naltrexone 
  • Buprenorphine 
  1. Reduces the chances of relapse

Another major effect of detox is the possibility of relapse. Due to the harsh withdrawal symptoms, you can easily have the urge to take the substance one more time just to feel better. But with these prescription medicines, you can easily overcome the chances of relapse. 

  1. You get 24/7 support 

The professionals at the rehab understand that detox is not an easy process and you will need constant support and assistance throughout the phase. Thus, a medically-assisted detox program provides you 24/7 support and assistance from the staff. 

With these benefits, it is evident that a medically-assisted detox program is a safer way out than detoxing “cold turkey”.
