Exploring the Inpatient Detoxification Process

Once an addict has reached the decision to seek help, the first step in addiction recovery is detoxification. Since drug and alcohol addictions can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms, it is highly advisable for patients to check into an inpatient treatment facility. At an addiction treatment center, patients will receive all of the supportive services they need to get through the detox process and to begin working toward long-term addiction recovery.

Admissions and Intake

When the patient arrives at the treatment facility, he or she will go through an intake process. The patient can expect to receive a comprehensive physical exam to assess any emergent and non-emergent health issues. Additionally, the doctor will carefully review the patient’s personal medical history and evaluate his or her drug use.

Medical Monitoring

After the patient has been admitted to the residential treatment facility, he or she will be settled into a private room. Every effort is made to support the patient’s comfort throughout the detoxification process; however, the patient’s room also features sophisticated medical monitoring equipment. While the patient is going through drug withdrawal, medical staff is always available to respond to the patient’s medical needs.

Psychological Care

Patients do not begin intensive therapy programs until after the detoxification process is complete. However, it’s certainly not uncommon for psychological issues to arise during the detox. Withdrawal symptoms can often include anxiety, depression, and other emotions that can be difficult to cope with. Because of this, patients may have access to an on-site psychologist during this time.

Rehabilitation Transition

Once the drugs or alcohol are out of the patient’s body, he or she can begin to focus on the process of addiction recovery. An addiction specialist will work closely with the patient to identify his or her unique needs and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
