Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
A Philadelphia drug detox is presenting a video explaining its services for people living in Philadelphia and surrounding cities through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers. Those cities include Ardmore, Upper Darby, Camden, Springfield, Wallingford, and Cherry Hill.
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.
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.
Drug detoxification varies depending on the location of treatment, but most detox centers provide treatment to avoid the symptoms of physical withdrawal to alcohol & other drugs. Most also incorporate counseling and therapy during detox to help with the consequences of withdrawal.
Some withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, muscle aches, cold sweats, increasing heart rate, increased blood pressure, irritability, and anxiety. 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.
Men, women and teens might find themselves caught in a web of addiction. Drug Addiction Treatment Centers can lead a person to healing, hope and recovery.
