Using drugs can ruin one’s life and cause them to eventually seek a way out. Sometimes it can be hard to stop using drugs because after long term drug use, your body is dependant on using your drug of choice. Once there is dependency it can be physically painful for you to stop using and this makes it extremely hard to stop. Fortunately, outpatient detox in Delray Beach makes it so much easier to stop using and start effective drug treatment.
Some of the symptoms associated with drug withdrawal include headaches, vomiting, nausea, chills, fever, anxiety, sweating, and body aches. It can even be deadly in extreme cases to stop using drugs suddenly if you have been hooked on them for a long period of time. The detox process is very safe and handled by medical professionals to make sure it is done the right way.
The first step to outpatient drug detox in Delray Beach is evaluation. This is when a patient is first tested to see which specific substances are presently circulating in their bloodstream and the amount. Clinicians also evaluate the patient for potential co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis, and mental/behavioral issues. Following evaluation being the process of stabilization, when the patient is guided through the process of detoxification.
This may be done with or without medications, however usually medications are involved to make it more comfortable. Finally treatment is involved after the detoxification process is finished to start the recovery process.
