Addiction Detox Program

When individuals stop taking addictive drugs or drinking alcohol, many experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms affect people in different ways and with varying severity. Medically supervised detox programs, like what we offer at Silver Pines, are vital to prevent serious issues stemming from withdrawal symptoms.

What Is Detox?

In general, detoxing at a drug detox center or an alcohol detox center involves removing toxins from the body and stopping drug or alcohol use is the first step. During this process, individuals must wait for their bodies to metabolize any remaining traces of drugs. The withdrawal symptoms that arise when people stop taking drugs are often uncomfortable, and abruptly stopping the use of certain drugs can be very dangerous. For these reasons, it’s vital to participate in detox programs that consist of medically supervised detox, symptom management, safety, and support. This process, also known as “medically-managed withdrawal,” is designed to help individuals safely manage their withdrawal symptoms after they stop using drugs or alcohol.

Detox Phases at Silver Pines

At Silver Pines in Pennsylvania, our drug detox services occur in three phases:

Phase 1: Evaluation The first step of our program is an evaluation during which a medical professional assesses the presence of drugs and alcohol and the need for medical detoxification. During this phase, clients have stopped using drugs and start receiving individualized and holistic treatment based on their needs until their withdrawal symptoms subside.

Phase 2: Stabilization The next phase is stabilization, which is the core element of treatment. During this phase, clients have stopped using drugs and they start to receive individualized and holistic treatment based on their needs until their withdrawal symptoms subside.

Phase 3: Foundation Setting Setting a foundation for further treatment is the final phase. This element occurs as soon as clients are comfortable and out of the worst part of withdrawal. It involves urging clients to be active participants in therapy so they can address the root cause of their addiction and prevent relapse.

How Long Does Detox Take?

There’s no set amount of time that it takes to complete addiction detox, as it varies based on many factors. It usually takes a person between 6 and 24 hours after their last use to start feeling withdrawal symptoms. The most intense side effects occur 24 to 72 hours after last using the drug. Additionally, the entire drug detox process may only take a couple of days for people with mild or moderate addictions; however, it could take weeks for people with severe addictions period. Even months after drug detoxification or alcohol detoxification, some individuals may still feel the effects of drug use and acute withdrawal, including anxiety, depression, and fatigue.

The Dangers of Detox at Home

Although some individuals attempt to complete the alcohol detoxification or drug detoxification process on their own, it’s extremely unsafe to do this without medical supervision. Withdrawal affects everyone differently, and some examples of the symptoms and dangerous complications when detoxing from drugs can include:
