Levels of Care
As patients progress through treatment at our Fort Myers treatment center, they often move between levels of care. The levels become less intensive as patients make gains in recovery.
A necessary first step when recovering from drug and alcohol abuse, this step is when harmful chemicals leave the person’s system. Drugs work by rewiring the brain to believe it needs the drugs to function normally. When the drugs leave the system, the brain has to relearn how to function without the drugs’ presence. This creates a condition in the user called withdrawal.
The severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on the substance being abused. A patient who recreationally took ADHD drugs like Adderall might experience headaches, insomnia and irritability as the stimulants left their system. A methamphetamine user might endure wild mood swings. The severe flu-like symptoms of opioid withdrawal are infamous for their severity. Withdrawing from benzodiazepines and alcohol can be especially dangerous. Some patients may experience seizures as they detoxify from these drugs, particularly if they take the ill-advised “cold turkey” route.
Receiving detoxification treatment from a provider like Sovereign Health allows this vital first step to be done in a controlled, medically-supervised environment. We ensure that our patients are as comfortable and as safe as possible during this difficult time in recovery. Substance cravings are also more easily managed in this environment.
