What to Expect During Withdrawals

For every drug of addiction, including alcohol, there are a number of different treatment options for those who are ready for drug detox and rehab. Although recovery from any addiction can be a long and bumpy road, the final goal of abstinence and the mental and physical freedom that comes with it is well worth the trip. Don’t let the fear of drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms scare you.

At Michael’s House, we can help you get the drug detox you need. By attending to the mental and social challenges related to drug addiction as well as the physical need to stabilize after flushing the toxins from the system, drug detox at Michael’s House is well-rounded and wholly unlike what you will find in outpatient drug detox programs. At Michael’s House, we can help you regain your family, your job, and your life. Call today for more information.

The Results of Detox

During regular use of drugs of addiction like heroin, cocaine, alcohol, crystal meth, prescription drugs, and club drugs like Ecstasy, your body begins to deteriorate. The liver and kidneys especially suffer from the toxic effects. You may notice fatigue, yellowing of the skin or eyes. These are symptoms that your body isn’t functioning properly, that there are too many toxins for it process safely. With drug detox, your body is given respite and a chance to recover from the toxin overload. Some of your physical health problems will disappear completely during and after drug detox and others will diminish in significance.

The social changes provided by drug detox centers will affect every aspect of your life: family, work, and school, legal and financial issues, and your standing in the community. During your addiction, your relationship with everyone in your life was hurt by your illness. By treating that illness, you have a chance to effect change not only in yourself but in the lives of those around you. You will be more able to spend time with your children, focus on the events in the lives of your friends, offer more at work. Your attitude, in general, will be so much more optimistic that you will find yourself getting involved in new projects, making new friends and starting a new life without drugs and alcohol.

Another positive effect brought about by drug detox is the ability to become more mentally focused and alert. To say that your mental capacity is diminished when you are in the throes of drug and alcohol addiction is an understatement. By undergoing a drug and alcohol detox at a certified drug treatment facility, you can clear your mind of the cobwebs and regain the clarity you enjoyed before addiction set in.
