Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) November 02, 2013
A Jacksonville drug detox, Drug Addiction Treatment Centers, is announcing that free, no-cost consultations are now available for people seeking help.
Drug addicts will go to any lengths for their substance. They medicate themselves so life issues become irrelevant. Drugs affect a person’s life in many, many ways.
The drug detox center immediately begins with physical detoxification. Withdrawal symptoms can seemingly cripple a person physically and emotionally. If a person chooses to detox without supervision, then that person loses control of his or her mental and physical faculties.
Some withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, muscle aches, cold sweats, increasing heart rate, increased blood pressure, irritability, and anxiety. These symptoms can even become life-threatening ones – suicidal ideation, delirium tremens (DTs), stroke, heart attack or even death – to an individual. That’s why 24-hour supervision under a detox center’s guiding watch makes more sense.
This process’ duration differs between individuals, but it’s important to stay safe and comfortable through the whole detox process. Age, gender, type of substance that was used, how long a person has used it and a medical history are taken into consideration when planning out the detox process.
Once an adult or adolescent has gone through drug detox, their physical bodies are ready for the next phase. Cravings for their substance of choice will remain, yet there is hope. This is where counseling and therapeutic methods come into play.
Men, women and teens might find themselves caught in a web of addiction. For instance, drugs like cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana could be a problem. Drug Addiction Treatment Centers can lead a person into a promised land of healing, hope and recovery.
