Addiction detoxification will bring about common, and sometimes severe, withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the drug in question, these symptoms can become overwhelming for an individual. However, through medically assisted detox, you can overcome withdrawal safely. This form of medically supervised detox is a private detox option at The Retreat that gives you the comfort and safety you deserve.
What is Medically Assisted Detox?
Specifically, medically assisted detox is ridding your body of a specific substance with the use of and supervision of medication. This will lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms and make you feel more comfortable during the process.
The use of medication will be under close supervision at all times to ensure your safety. Moreover, this medication will only be in use for a short amount of time. This will help you focus without the emotional and physical aspects of detox in your way.
Therapies During Detox
During your medically assisted detox program, you will also have access to a variety of therapies to help treat your mind, body, and spirit. During detox therapy, you will learn more about your addiction and develop relapse prevention techniques and important life skills. This will help you transition back to daily life without the fears of relapse. For example, our therapies at The Retreat include:
- Yoga and meditation
- Massage therapy
When you complete our medically supervised detox program, it can be difficult to return to your daily life and responsibilities. However, with therapeutic intervention, we can teach you positive ways to handle your triggers and stressors. These triggers can be influenced by a variety of things, such as your environment, social circles, and relationships.
With proper coping skills, you will be able to manage stress and any anxiety you may have that could lead to relapse. With Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you will learn new ways to handle destructive thought patterns that influenced your addiction before medically assisted detox.
Many people fall into substance abuse because they feel as if there is no other way out of a certain problem. However, this form of self-medication can be devastating on you and your family. By learning new positive ways of handling stressors and triggers, you can return home with the confidence to remain active in your recovery without relapse.
