Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
A Phoenix drug detox is announcing that a new video is available reviewing services available for people living in Phoenix and surrounding cities through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers. These cities include Wickenburg, Surprise, Buckeye, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, and Glendale.
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.
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.
