Why Medication-Assisted Detox Is So Important

The detox process can be intimidating to those needing care for substance use disorders. There can be many side effects associated with withdrawal, including dehydration, vomiting, seizures, delirium, hallucinations, agitation, paranoia, and more.

However, avoiding treatment, attempting to detox without professional assistance, and choosing lower levels of care despite low success rates can have a dramatically negative impact on an individual’s ability to recover from their substance use disorder. Withdrawal symptoms from drug and alcohol addiction can be severe, painful, and even dangerous or life threatening.

By undergoing detox under the supervision of experienced medical professionals and trained clinicians, individuals are able to safely break their physical dependence on their drug of choice and prepare themselves mentally and emotionally to receive treatment for addiction, substance abuse, and mental health issues in the future.

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, (ASAM) “Inpatient detoxification provides the safest setting for the treatment of substance withdrawal because it ensures that patients will be carefully monitored and appropriately supported. Such monitoring is especially important if the patient is physically dependent on high doses of alcohol or other sedative-hypnotic drugs.”

Our San Antonio detox center provides an unparalleled patient experience in substance abuse treatment and addiction treatment services. If you are seeking addiction treatment, give us a week and we will give you your life back.
