LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Medical Drug Detox Center is pleased to announce that a new video is now available for people seeking drug and alcohol detox help in Los Angeles and surrounding cities. Those areas include Century City, Hollywood, Alhambra, Culver City, Glendale, Burbank, and Pasadena.
Substance abuse problems, including those surrounding heroin, turns lives upside down. Alcoholism is a disease affecting all areas of a person's life.
Alcohol detoxification is a process by which a heavy drinker's system is brought back to normal after being used to having alcohol in the body on a continual basis. Serious alcohol addiction results in a decrease in production of GABA, a reuptake inhibitor, because alcohol acts to replace it. Precipitous withdrawal from long-term alcohol addiction without medical management can cause severe health problems and can be fatal. Alcohol detox is not a treatment for alcoholism. After detoxification, other treatments must be undergone to deal with the underlying addiction that caused the alcohol use.
When drugs and alcohol become part of an individual's life to the point that problems exist all over the place, then choices and consequences begin to build. Some people, if they are too far down the road, don't make it back.
Other drugs like oxycontin, Suboxone, and cocaine destruct lives. There is hope for those who choose a different road, one that offers healing, hope and recovery.
Drug detoxification is used to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping the addicted individual adjust to living without drug use; drug detoxification is not meant to treat addiction but rather an early step in long-term treatment. Detoxification may be achieved drug free or may use medications as an aspect of treatment. Often drug detoxification and treatment will occur in a community program that lasts several months and takes place in a residential rather than medical center.
When people attempt to detox from drugs and alcohol on their own, their results aren't always spectacular. Getting much-needed help and support for gaining and maintaining long-term sobriety lets people see life in recovery is better.
