The benefits of a professionally trained detox team
Detoxification is often considered to be the first step toward achieving sobriety. For this reason, it is vital that the detoxification process goes as smoothly and painlessly as possible. Clinicians who are trained in detox will do whatever they can to ease cravings and reduce the withdrawal symptoms during the process.
Although many individuals believe that they don’t need detox to get clean, professionally administered detox can make the difference between recovery and relapse — or even life and death. Certain substances can be fatal if they are halted without consulting a medical professional. For instance, quitting alcohol or benzodiazepines “cold turkey” can result in delirium, seizures or even death.
Professional clinicians can also help individuals who wish to quit substances that do not cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms such as cocaine, opioids and amphetamines. For instance, people who are withdrawing from opioids may experience vomiting, diarrhea, exhaustion, insomnia and anxiety among other symptoms. Although none of these conditions are life-threatening, they may significantly hinder the person’s life and make it more difficult to quit outright.
