CANTON, OH (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Canton Alcohol Drug Rehab announces that a new drug detox program has started for drug and alcohol addiction in Canton and surrounding cities.
Detoxification allows individuals that have filled their physical bodies up over and over again with harmful drugs to get clean. It can last between 2-3 days or 5-6 days in some cases. The new detox program allows for more time in detox if the medical staff determines that it is necessary.
When a person enters drug detox, the technicians on staff immediately start taking down pertinent individual information like name, address, phone number, and relative or family member to contact. Then, the individual receives a thorough medical checkup from a member of the Canton center's medical staff. Blood pressure, skin color, checking for any physical bruises, and a urine test are all part of this process. After collecting this data, the medical staff is able to understand where the client is physically right now.
From here, the detox process begins. A client is given a bed and receives medical support while being weaned off street drugs or prescription drugs like methamphetamines, Xanax, Ecstasy, or heroin. Restlessness, anxiety, hallucinations, body aches and nausea are possible reactions during drug detox. These are considered normal by medical team members, and they can provide medications to help ease the detoxification process. Yet the medical staff will make it clear that a weaning timetable takes place so that the client in detox will not become addicted to new drugs. Making detox feel as easy and comfortable as possible is the center's goal.
After detox is complete, the individual can be led into the drug rehab's residential treatment program for additional help and support. But detox should be considered as highly critical for anyone wanting to kiss drugs goodbye for good.
