Drug Detox Process

Addiction recovery, although strenuous, is the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself. In most cases, it will probably save your life. However, most people find that trying to get sober on their own is nearly impossible. Break free from the destructive cycle of addiction with the help of others—both peers and medical professionals. Addiction treatment programs are great places to begin your personal recovery with drug detox.

What Is Drug Detox?

Drug detox is the first step in recovering from drug addiction. Above all, medical detox is a necessary step in your recovery from drug use disorder as it provides a safe, controlled environment to remove the toxins from your body. However, detox withdrawals are potentially deadly. So, in order to prevent life-threatening withdrawal symptoms, addiction treatment centers, such as Royal Life Centers, provide medical dox services. Medical detox is the removal of addictive substances from the body under medical supervision and care. If necessary, addiction specialists administer medications to curb the painful side effects of withdrawal and inhibit the potential for fatal seizures.

Drug Detox Timeline

Medically assisted detox is a relatively short process, lasting anywhere from four to eight days. Depending on your addiction factors like the drug or drugs being abused, the length of drug abuse, and the number of drugs abused, a detox specialist will determine the time required for your detox.

What Happens After?

Once Addiction specialists have successfully detoxed the drugs from your system, you move into the next level of care. Following detox, guests move into our residential inpatient program. During inpatient, Royal Life Centers’ medical staff continue to monitor your progress, ensuring your physical health as you work to heal your mental health in recovery.

Does Drug And Alcohol Rehab Work?

Drug detox is a necessity for anyone attempting to end their addiction to drugs. On the other hand, drug detox is incredibly dangerous considering the potentially lethal side effects during withdrawal. In other words, to safely detox from drugs, people suffering from addiction require a medical detox provided by an addiction treatment center such as Royal Life Centers.

Of course, drug and alcohol rehab works. However, if someone leaves the treatment program before completing detox, the chances of relapse are high. On the other hand, if you stay the entirety of Royal Life Centers’ program, following every level of inpatient and completing outpatient, you leave with the skill and relapse prevention techniques that can last you a lifetime. 

Above all else, Royal Life Centers is dedicated to each guest. In fact, we individualize your treatment program to meet your recovery needs so that once you enter our program, we never stop encouraging and guiding you toward your personal goals. After all, you deserve a fulfilling life, and recovery gives that to you.
