If you feel like you’ve heard about detox being talked about a lot lately, it’s because more and more Americans are taking a look at their relationship with drugs and alcohol. With pandemic measures being removed and everyone getting back out with friends and family, substance use doesn’t seem like the only option when looking for something to do. Exploring sobriety should always start with detox to make the transition as comfortable as possible.

Safely Detox at ARC

Depending on how severe your addiction or substance abuse is, medical detox may be required in order for you to achieve initial sobriety without feeling the full force of severe withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawals occur when someone abuses drugs or alcohol over a long period of time and the brain starts to change how it operates due to it. Different substances trigger different areas of the brain and when you sober up, those areas will struggle to function on their own.

Alcohol has some of the most severe withdrawal symptoms that require medical attention to keep from turning fatal. Those who have heavily abused alcohol for months or years can experience what’s called delirium tremens which creates hallucinations and an inability to tell reality from imagination. This can lead to erratic behavior and physical violence which is where medical detox comes in.

How Detox Leverages FDA-Approved Medication

Starting detox at ARC means getting support from a world-class team of experienced clinicians and psychologists. Advances in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) has made even the most severe cases of addiction able to be tackled with minimal discomfort to the patient.
