Sedative Detox

Sedative Detox

Sedative Detox includes all drugs and alcohol that are central nervous system depressants. Detox can last from 5-8 days on average depending upon amounts and combination of drugs used. Monitoring of vital signs continues as client completes detox and transitions into substance abuse treatment. Symptoms of central nervous system depressants can include:

  • Fevers
  • Loss of appetite
  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Nightmares
  • Restlessness
  • Muscle spasms
  • Seizures
  • Rebound
  • Delirium tremens
  • Cardio-vascular difficulty
  • Joint pain
  • Respiratory depression
  • Mood Changes
  • Fatigue
  • Mental Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Abnormal eye movements
  • Dehydration
  • Headaches

Withdrawal symptoms begin within hours of last use and can increase in intensity during the first 48-72 hours. Withdrawal symptoms can persist for weeks. Medical monitoring through detox and early treatment is strongly advised. Cravings can last for much longer. The more times a client relapses and detoxes, the worse the withdrawal symptoms and the cravings become. Successfully completing detox is important but it must be followed by substance abuse treatment.
