Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance Withdrawal and the Need for Detox

There are many different programs that can be used to help you overcome your addiction. To begin with, you must stop using the substance in question. But how can you achieve this crucial goal? After all, if you’re addicted, the odds are high that you will experience significant withdrawal symptoms when you quit. In their severe form, these symptoms can make you feel extremely unwell or even threaten your life. And even when they’re much milder, they can sap your will to get drugs or alcohol out of your system.

Together, these facts add up to one pressing reality. Namely, trying to quit drinking or taking drugs on your own can be both difficult and dangerous. How can you decrease the difficulty to a tolerable level and simultaneously protect your health? The answer is enrollment in a medically supervised detoxification program. 

Medical detox not only helps decrease the unpleasant consequences of substance withdrawal. It also provides crucial resources for the protection of your health and well-being. The end result is typically a safer, surer pathway to quitting drugs or alcohol.

Recovery Journey

Detox as Preparation for
Addiction Treatment in Helena

A detox program is designed to do more than protect your health and help you complete substance withdrawal. It also:

  • Explains the importance of entering a substance treatment program following detox
  • Fills you in on the basic concepts of substance treatment
  • Familiarizes you with the day-to-day routines in a treatment program

Without this kind of preparation, you might fail to seek follow-up treatment after reaching sobriety. You might also lack awareness of how and why substance treatment works. In addition, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the unfamiliar environment of your new treatment program. Together and separately, all of these things help increase your odds of relapsing back into active substance use.

Wondering if you or your loved
one needs addiction treatment?

We understand how challenging it can be to know if and when you or your loved one needs help with addiction.  By taking this quiz, you can get a quick assessment of some signs that may indicate whether or not you need to reach out for help. 

What to Expect

What Happens in a Supervised Detox Program?

The details of this progressive path can vary from person to person. However, its general course is the same for everyone. That course includes:

  • Undergoing an assessment of your detox needs
  • Receiving supportive care for your withdrawal symptoms
  • Taking any medications required to further support your progress
  • Participating in counseling or therapy that helps you get ready for rehab

An assessment is needed to determine the specifics of your particular detox program. This is key to maximizing your comfort and safety while going through withdrawal. What takes place during a detox assessment? One important step is determining exactly how much of a given substance is still in your system. Your detox team will also need to ascertain how much of that substance you normally use and how often you use it. In addition, you will report the details of your physical and mental health history. Finally, your team will consider any additional factors that could affect your withdrawal experience.

The goal of supportive care is to keep you comfortable, safe, and in stable condition during detox. This is done, in part, by conducting detox in a calming environment. Regular monitoring of your vital signs is also required. 

Many people going through withdrawal are dehydrated. If that’s true for you, you’ll receive enough fluids to rehydrate your system. Nutritional issues are also common. Detox addresses these issues with a generally healthy diet. You may also need to take nutritional supplements.

Medication is not as widely used in detox as supportive care. The reason? There are only evidence-based medication options for treating certain forms of addiction. You may also receive medication to help you through sedative detox. The medication you receive depends on the specifics of your situation.

Counseling and therapy play multiple roles at a Helena drug and alcohol rehab center. In detox, they’re typically used to achieve several goals. For example, your counselor or therapist can help you learn more about the nature of addiction. They can also help clarify detox and rehab’s separate but complementary roles. In addition, counseling or therapy can help you understand why various things are done to support your recovery.
