 Drug Rehab – Call (214) 307-9171 and Get Help Today!

For over a decade, we have been helping men and women in the Dallas, TX area overcome addiction to drugs and alcohol. We assist men and women who are ready to take the first step towards recovery from substance dependency, providing safe, supervised clinical facilities, and individualized detox regimens. Detoxification, or detox, cleanses the body of accumulated toxins and drugs, an essential first step for anyone who is ready to give up their addictions and begin the rehabilitation process. Detox therapies depend on which drug or drugs are in the system, and since “cold turkey” approaches are not safe for all types of addiction, it’s best if detox is performed in a controlled, medically supervised environment. In fact, trying to quit cold turkey can be very dangerous,  Our staff utilizes safe and proven strategies that treat every client as individuals with different detox requirements.

Types of Detox

The two kinds of detox most often used in our detox center are known as medically supervised withdrawal and social detoxification.  Our health care professionals decide which method to use depending on:

  • the substance being abused
  • duration of use
  • age of the patient
  • the mental state of the client
  • physical health of the patient
  • what sort of atmosphere the professionals think will likely be the most beneficial to the patient

People who benefit the most from medically supervised withdrawal include those who have been hooked on:

  • alcohol
  • pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
  • barbiturates or sedatives
  • opioids (heroin, OxyContin7, codeine)

The painful and unpleasant withdrawal symptoms of these drugs are minimalized by certain detox aids that may only be prescribed by a medical doctor. It is also important that people who are affected by severe alcoholism, or who’re abusing alcohol together with other drugs, participate in medically supervised withdrawal. The medications used prevent serious health conditions due to withdrawal, like hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and mental issues that can result from withdrawing suddenly from alcohol or other substances. Medically supervised withdrawal is urgently suggested for anybody who has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has a severe sickness, or has been diagnosed with certain psychological illnesses.

Social detoxification is much better suited for people whose drug use will only result in mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms, from substances such as:

  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • methamphetamine
  • infrequent opioid use
  • infrequent alcohol use

This type of detox usually doesn’t require medications, but clients are monitored by medical staff and therapists who help the client get through the cravings of withdrawal while ensuring the clients’ overall well-being. Social detoxification is a “social” experience; that means clients are not separated in hospital-like rooms but live alongside each other while they detox. This way, patients are prepared to live together and work along with other people in recovery while they’re in a treatment program.

Our Rehab Center’s Strategies

Different substances are responsible for different withdrawal symptoms, which is why our facility provides so many detox procedures. Depressants, such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol, can cause:

  • hallucinations
  • tremors
  • seizures
  • higher blood pressure
  • increased heart rate
  • higher internal temperature

Stimulants (for instance, amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, and Ritalin) have milder withdrawal symptoms, and usually require little more than emotional support from family, loved ones, and counselors. When appropriate, doctors might recommend medication to prevent stimulant psychosis, which can result in:

  • suicidal feelings
  • suicide attempts
  • paranoid thoughts
  • psychosis

Withdrawal symptoms from opioids (including heroin, morphine, codeine, and OxyContin) run the gamut from:

  • runny nose
  • sweating
  • anxiousness
  • depression
  • quickening pulse
  • quickening breathing
  • bone pain
  • muscle pain
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea

Take the First Step

Detox doesn’t replace a treatment plan, but it may be an essential first step towards recovery for many people.  Our treatment center provides support during and after a detoxification treatment because they are aware of how easy it can be to relapse after getting clean. Detoxification drug uses detox in combination with rehabilitation and other substance abuse treatment methods to give their clients the best chance at long-term sobriety. Total recovery is possible, and people are most successful if detox is used in combination with drug and alcohol rehabilitation that our treatment center provides.
