Joliet, IL (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Joliet IL Alcohol Drug Rehab is pleased to announce that it is now offering an updated drug detoxification program for individuals seeking help to stop their drug addiction in Joliet and other towns in the area.
Drug addiction cuts a path of destruction similar to a tornado, only the destruction is being done by an individual. The drug addict runs rampant over relationships, family members and friends because he or she only cares about getting more drugs. The job goes away, money runs out and their best friends become the drug dealers. In essence, their lives are mere shells of who they once were as functional people.
Choosing drug detox over continuing a deadly spiral downward with drug addiction is a life-saving one. The updated detoxification process in Joliet involves cleansing the body of drugs that are choking the life out of individuals, leaving them mere shadows. The facility does not sugarcoat how painful going through drug detoxification is for individuals. In order to move forward with life and away from drugs, detox is necessary.
Upon entering the updated detoxification program, adults and adolescents receive a full medical checkup. A member of the facility's medical team sits down and takes an inventory of what drugs a person has used over the past 72 hours. The medical professional needs this information, so specifics will be important to get from the drug addict. Once this is done, then the individual leaves his personal belongings in the care of a technician and enters the expanded detox area. The facility has added two additional spaces as part of its redesigned program.
The process lasts from 2-3 days for some and 5-6 days for others, depending upon how serious their case might be. While detoxing, symptoms can include an achy body, irritability, anxiety, nausea, hallucinations, and sleeplessness. The medical staff can offer medications to help make this process easier, but they will be weaning an individual off the drugs being used day by day.
