The first step towards recovery for those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction is detoxification (detox). This process is to rid the body of drugs, alcohol, and associated toxins and can take about 7-14 days. Paradise Detox provides safe and comfortable drug and alcohol detox services for patients detoxing from drugs such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, heroin, or other addictive substances. While undergoing detox, you will be under the constant supervision of highly-experienced medical professionals.
Drug Addiction Withdrawal
What Happens During The Detox Process
During the detox process, it’s normal to experience withdrawal symptoms, so it’s crucial to be in a detox center like Paradise Detox, where medical professionals monitor you around the clock and can provide medications to ease discomfort.
The exact nature of withdrawal symptoms varies depending on several factors, such as the type of drug you’ve been abusing, the severity of your addiction, and any present co-occurring mental health disorders.
In general, signs of withdrawal often occur within the first few hours of stopping drug use and may last for seven days or longer. Common withdrawal symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle cramping, hot flashes, loss of appetite, disrupted sleep patterns, agitation, anxiety, and paranoia. The severity of these symptoms may range from mildly uncomfortable to dangerous.
