Lubbock, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Lubbock TX Alcohol Drug Rehab is launching a new drug detoxification program for adults and adolescents caught in the trap of drug addiction in Lubbock and other cities around the High Plains area.
Detoxing from the horrendous depths of drug abuse takes a person to fully committed to have their physical body become free from the grasp of cocaine, marijuana, Ecstasy, prescription pills and other substances. The new detoxification process in Lubbock takes the person's commitment quite seriously.
The detox process is quite involved at the beginning. A medical staff sits down with this individual and takes an inventory of all drugs ingested over the past week. They do an in-depth physical, looking for needle marks, nose bleeds and other complications from drug abuse. Blood pressure, pulse and temperature are taken, too. Once this has been done, then the client enters a special area where medical specialists carefully monitor the healing process. Medications, which are watched by the detoxification medical staff, can provide an easier way to maneuver tough times in detox. These are offered, then the client is weaned off of them. The body will undergo a transition including lack of sleep, nervousness, loss of appetite, and possible hallucinations.
This process is nothing new with the clinic's medical staff. It knows how to treat and adjust a person's detoxification process based upon the progress. Ultimately, a person will be led into residential treatment after detox. Stays in detox can range from 3-4 to 7-8 days, depending upon the individual and how much the body has not fully healed from drug and alcohol addiction.
It is worth noting that detoxification can help lead to a life without substance abuse. Thanks to the new drug detox program, individuals that desire a change in their lives now have some place to begin.
