Prescription Drug Detox
What is Prescription Drug Detox?
Prescription drugs can be divided into four categories: Stimulants, Sedatives, Opioids and Hallucinogens. Each of these groups is comprised of a variety of drugs legal and illegal, natural and manufactured. Regardless of the drug classification, detoxification will produce withdrawal symptoms. Sometimes withdrawal symptoms are life threatening, other times withdrawal symptoms are painful but not life threatening. Often, withdrawal from drugs and alcohol will create severe psychological states that can lead to suicide.
The severity of withdrawal symptoms during prescription drug detox is dependent upon the combination of drugs used, the duration of drug use, and the physical, mental, emotional and psychological state of the user. Some combinations result in seizure, stroke and death (alcohol and benzodiazepines, for example).
Medically supervised prescription drug detox should be sought If an addict has been combining drugs and alcohol. Physicians at the Detox Boca can provide each client with a thorough and comprehensive evaluation that will make detox and withdrawal manageable. The doctors can prescribe medication to counter act physical withdrawal such a vomiting, diarrhea, joint pain, as well as medication to ease depression, anxiety or panic.
Once the client has moved through the peak days of withdrawal symptoms, the physicians will re-evaluate and adjust the client’s medication. The goal is to help the client complete detox and prepare him or her for the next step in recovery-treatment.
