When people have severe addictions to drugs or alcohol, it can be nearly impossible for them to stop the addiction on their own. When people who have an advanced addiction suddenly stop using drugs or alcohol, it can be a painful and dangerous experience due to withdrawal symptoms. In fact, many people relapse during this process because the withdrawal symptoms become too intense. At Ethan Crossing of Columbus, our addiction treatment center provides clinical care as well as addiction therapy programs and counseling for our guests who are going through detox.
Our team has years of experience guiding people on the path to recovery. Our doctors and nurses provide a safe, supportive environment for detox. Contact our Ethan Crossing of Columbus team today by calling 855.476.0078 or by contacting us online for more information about our detox center.
How Medically-Supported Detox Helps Recovery
For many people, the detoxification process can be difficult because of the changes in the brain’s chemistry due to addiction. When an addiction is severe, the brain and body become physically dependent on a substance. When the system doesn’t get the chemicals that it depends upon, withdrawal symptoms occur. While the symptoms can vary depending on the substance the individual uses, as well as the severity of their addiction, common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Increased heart rate or blood pressure
- Anxiety, irritability, or mood swings
- Chills or sweating
- Insomnia or loss of appetite
- Hallucinations or delusions
If and when these withdrawal symptoms happen in our residential addiction treatment center, we can prescribe medication and provide support to ease withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings. The medical support that our Ethan Crossing of Columbus team provides keeps you as safe and comfortable as possible throughout your detox process. We offer a drug rehab center and alcohol rehab center including a heroin detox program, opioid detox program, and medication-assisted treatment.
After you complete the initial stage of detox, you can begin your rigorous therapeutic programs. Once the chemicals from your addiction are flushed out of your system, you have a stronger chance for long-lasting, genuine recovery. While cravings are common and relapse can still happen, getting through detox successfully can be a source of motivation for many in recovery.
