If you are struggling with drug abuse, an inpatient drug detox facility can help you overcome your problem, regain control and possibly save your life. An inpatient drug detox center can give you a place to rest and recover while you detox, allowing you to be renewed and ready to begin your new life.
Non medical vs. Medical Detox
Inpatient drug detox centers are each unique in the type of procedure and medication they use, accommodations and patient care. Some inpatient detox centers provide medical detox and others provide non medical detox. Inpatient non medical drug detox is a mind, body and spirit approach to detox and offers a holistic spa retreat. While the treatment protocol will vary, many of these retreats use acupuncture, meditation and yoga, as well as vitamin therapy to detox the body from drug abuse. Although it is a natural way to detoxify, the non medical approach to drug detox does not work for everyone. The withdrawal symptoms from certain types of drug detox are sometimes painful and without the use of medication and the care of a medical professional, the individual could suffer needlessly and could be dangerous for the patient. Inpatient medical detox can be a traditional approach in which individuals stay in a hospital and receive oral medication or IV therapy medical drug detox in a private inpatient facility. Unfortunately, most inpatient hospital drug detox places patients in rooms that are located in psychiatric units, in lock down or in isolation. Hospitals restrict patients from bringing into drug detox personal items and also restrict patient contact with the outside world which leaves patients to feel they have to go it alone and the oral medication that most hospital drug detox uses is seen as ineffective at controlling the withdrawal symptoms. The sad truth is that many patients leave hospital detox before the detox is complete. IV therapy medical drug detox offers private well appointed rooms for patients to detoxify in comfort. Further, patients are welcomed to bring their personal electronic devices such as personal cell phone and laptop and communication with their friends and family is encouraged. Patients are monitored around the clock by a professional and highly skilled staff. Intravenous therapy is relevant because it allows the medication protocol to be changed as the patient’s withdrawal symptoms change which keeps the patient comfortable and helps them to be successful in the detox process. IV therapy medical drug detox is a safe and effective method for detox.
