Prolonged use of drugs and alcohol can lead to permanent damage to several vital organs in your body. It can also affect your mental health. Thus, it is important to seek treatment as early as possible. But what about the fears of detox?
We all know detox isn’t an easy process but it’s also not impossible. If detoxing under professionals’ supervision, you can overcome addiction safely. But what does it exactly mean by a safe detox? Let’s find out.
Safe Detox from Alcohol and Drugs
Detoxing from alcohol and drugs means cleansing your system of all the toxins that you have been taking for a while now. After enrolling in a detox program at Taylor Recovery, you will completely cut off the consumption of addictive substances. This will result in a few sickness-like symptoms known as withdrawal symptoms.
These symptoms are the signs indicating the absence of alcohol and drugs in your body. A few commonly observed withdrawal symptoms among patients are:
- Mood swings
- Change in appetite
- Aches and pains
- Sleeping issues
- Runny nose or congestion
- Nausea and vomiting
A patient suffering from mild addiction can experience a few of these symptoms but less severity. Whereas, if you are at a higher stage of addiction, these symptoms can be severe along with a few other like:
- Cardiac arrest
- Respiratory arrest
- Delirium tremens or DT
If you are suffering from severe addiction, quitting substances “cold turkey” won’t help. In such a case, you would need a few medicines which can help ease these intense withdrawal symptoms.
