Detox Treatment Center
Detox is the first step to a clean life
Detoxification is the process of eliminating harmful and poisonous substances from the body. Harmful substances can include alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription drugs, and unhealthy food and beverages. The Sovereign Health Group treats substance abuse as well as any underlying co-occurring mental health disorders. Sovereign has many different treatment options to rid the body of drugs and alcohol, but before detox can begin, all underlying conditions must be diagnosed.
The Sovereign Health Group is a behavioral health treatment provider that is licensed to treat mental health, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Our expert staff provides patients with cutting-edge, evidence-based programs and a full continuum of therapeutic care monitored by licensed health professionals. We offer specialized facilities located throughout the United States and accept most forms of insurance. If you or a loved one has additional questions, contact our 24/7 helpline for more information.
Upon admission, our professional staff thoroughly assesses the patient. The assessment includes the diagnosis of any underlying mental or physical condition accompanying the addiction. It is essential that all conditions be treated concurrently to provide optimum recovery and to prevent relapse.
For the treatment to be effective, the patient must first be drug-free, and this is accomplished through the detox process. Here at Sovereign Health, easing the discomfort of this process is a top priority. Sovereign offers different detox options:
- Sovereign’s natural assisted detox treatment is a cutting-edge premium service that dramatically lessens or alleviates the symptoms of withdrawal, using natural ingredients that help regenerate the body’s energy process at a cellular level.
- Sovereign’s medically assisted detox uses medication to relieve withdrawal symptoms during detox. The specific medication will depend upon the specific substance of abuse. For example, methadone, Suboxone and naltrexone are used to treat opioid addiction and the accompanying withdrawal symptoms. Benzodiazepine withdrawal is treated with a slow taper of benzodiazepine administration.
Medically assisted detox is a straightforward acute treatment process. A medication is safely administered to alleviate any withdrawal side effects. Many users have the urge to use again due to these intense withdrawal symptoms, so it is important to alleviate these in the acute phase of treatment. Once these withdrawal symptoms are minimized or alleviated, the focus can then be on the long-term treatment of care and the lifestyle and behavioral changes that need to be made to live a healthy, sober life.
With the Sovereign Health Group, our expert clinical staff constantly monitors the patient through all stages of the withdrawal process, including the physical stages and mental stages. The physical stages depend on the specific drug. For example, opioid withdrawal includes stomach pains, nausea, diarrhea and irritability; alcohol withdrawal and benzodiazepine withdrawal can cause chills, alterations in blood pressure and heart rate, and even seizures.
Once the toxins are eliminated from the body, Sovereign recommends maintaining a healthy lifestyle throughout the patient’s recovery journey.
After the detoxification process, Sovereign’s programs provide many therapeutic activities including equine therapy, art, yoga, meditation, exercise and nutritional counseling to ensure long-lasting recovery.
Detox without subsequent rehab means that relapse is more likely to occur. The chances of remaining drug and alcohol free are much higher when patients are armed with skills to modify unhealthy behaviors.
Sovereign Health accepts most health insurance plans, making treatment affordable. If you would like further information, please call our 24/7 helpline to speak with a member of our admissions team.
