LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
A new drug and alcohol detox center is announcing that free, no-cost consultations are now available for people seeking help in Los Angeles.
Drug addicts and alcoholics deep into their addiction will go to any lengths for their substance. They medicate themselves so that life’s issues become irrelevant. Drugs and alcohol touch an individual’s life mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Our detox center touches on all four areas, yet will initially deal with the physical portion through detoxification. Withdrawal symptoms can physically and emotionally cripple a person for a period of time. If a person chooses to do it alone without supervision, then more trouble could be ahead because the 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 than attempting this without help. This process’ duration differs between individuals, but it’s important to stay safe and as comfortable as possible through the whole detox process. Each detox process will be different for each person going through it. Age, gender, type of substance used, how long a person has used it and his or her medical history all come into play when looking at a detox plan.
Once an adult or adolescent has gone through drug detox, their physical bodies are cleansed from all traces of drugs and alcohol. Now the cravings for their substance of choice - whether it's cocaine, opiates, prescription drugs, scotch, bourbon, or beer - 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. It might be alcohol, ranging from beer to vodka and whiskey. Whatever the individual case might be, the problem just keeps getting worse.
