Street and prescription drug addictions have skyrocketed in recent years. With that, there is a growing need for opiate detox programs in Southern California. Detoxification from opiate addiction carries specific risks and requires special supervision. Successful medical opiate detox will involve withdrawal, which symptoms can be very difficult to manage. As a result, it is often advisable that clients be given a tapering dose of a related drug, or undergo rapid detoxification under sedation. In both cases, clients are very closely monitored by medical personal.
Detox is the process the body goes through as it rids itself of any substances left in the system. During the withdrawal process, your body may begin to experience a number of intense symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms will occur as the body copes with any sudden decrease or elimination of drugs or alcohol it has become dependent on to function. In detox treatment programs, your withdrawal symptoms will be carefully monitored and addressed, allowing this first phase of treatment to be safer and less overwhelming.
Drug Detox Withdrawal Symptoms can vary. Depending on the class of drug involved, the withdrawal symptoms can vary in severity, duration and intensity. Contributing factors to individual drug withdrawal symptoms include:
The length of drug or alcohol addiction.
Any combination of drugs abused with or without alcohol.
The extent of drug dependency at the time treatment is entered.
All co-occurring mental or emotional disorders.
That said, there are common withdrawal symptoms that frequently occur regardless of the user’s drug of choice. Some of the most common are the following:
- Serious mood disturbances, including extreme mood swings, agitation and intense irritability. These issues alone can make the detox process daunting and impossible without professional emotional support.
- Physical discomfort including intense flu-like symptoms such as chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, sweating and tremors. Without appropriate medical intervention these can become extreme and could be potentially life threatening.
- Sleep disruptions and disturbances that make rest impossible, despite exhaustion and physical fatigue.
- Insatiable drug craving, specifically the drug of choice, creating strong desires and impulses to use, stoping withdrawal symptoms. This can be insurmountable for users, and most will not be able to continue on their own.
Each drug and drug family has substance specific symptoms. Opioids, including heroin, cause extreme joint and muscle pain, as well as abdominal cramping, nausea and vomiting as they clear the body. Alcohol withdrawal can cause mood altering anxiety, nervousness and agitation, along with fast heart rate, seizures and disorientation. With stimulant withdrawal, including cocaine and crystal meth, depression, hallucinations, paranoia are common.
