San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
A San Jose drug detox center is launching a video explaining its services for people living in San Jose and surrounding areas at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers. Besides San Jose, other cities in need of this help include Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Evergreen, Alum Rock, and Milpitas.
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 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.
Once an adult or adolescent has gone through drug detox, they are ready for the next phase which includes counseling and therapeutic methods.
Drugs like cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana could be a problem for adults and adolescents. Drug Addiction Treatment Centers can help a person find healing.
