FORT WAYNE, IN (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Fort Wayne IN Alcohol Drug Rehab announces that a new drug detoxification program is now available for individuals who want to clean up their lives from drug addiction in Fort Wayne and nearby cities.
Drug addiction leaves people detached from reality. Their thought processes are heavily impaired through addictive and abusive use of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, prescription pills, and other substances. When a drug addict reaches the end of his or her rope and decides that enough is enough, then they look at rehabilitation possibilities. Those include starting with a stint in drug detox.
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 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 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 all the drugs he or she is used to taking. Restlessness, anxiety, hallucinations, body aches and nausea are possible reactions in 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 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.
