How to Enter a Drug and Alcohol Detox Center for Women
Drug or alcohol addiction can have severe consequences on a person’s life, especially when they feel like they have lost all control over it. Acknowledging that you need help and reaching out to get it is usually the first and most important step towards recovery. The process may seem long and convoluted, and a lot of the patients fear that they’re not powerful enough to go through it. Acquiring the necessary information about what a detox treatment entails, can give them some control over it.
How Long Is a Detox Program?
The majority of alcohol and drug rehabilitation processes will require an initial period at a detox center to remove all the traces of these substances from the patient’s body. A detox program’s severity can vary according to the patient’s metabolism and mental state, the abused drug and dosage used, the addiction period, and so on.
For alcohol, for example, detox processes usually take seven to ten days, with rehab programs lasting a minimum of 30-45 days to even 60 or 90 days. Heroin usually takes a week until it is flushed out from the body, but it is possible to use rapid detox programs to speed up the process.
Where Is It Conducted?
Most rehab centers offer two types of detox programs:
- Inpatient Services – Patients live in a facility and benefit from 24-hour medical care. This option is ideal for people with severe addictions as it can help them avoid relapses.
- Outpatient Services – Patients are free to come and go as they like, but they need to take part in therapy sessions and follow the recommendations of their physicians if they want to avoid relapses.
Are There Women-Only Detoxification Programs?
The short answer is yes. Women respond to drug and alcohol addiction differently than men, and their treatment requires a unique approach. A lot of women develop a substance abuse problem as a result of a traumatic event, such as a violent crime, rape, domestic abuse, or the loss of a loved one. They often blame themselves for what happened to them and tend to develop feelings of helplessness and worthlessness.
As such, women need an environment that makes them feel safe and allows them to confront their past demons without the fear of being judged. Women-only detox centers usually focus on building a community where patients receive help not only from the physicians and counselors but also from each other.
What Medication Do Detox Centers Offer?
Physical and emotional dependence will determine chemical alterations both in the brain and the body, making it increasingly difficult to break the habit. Withdrawal symptoms can be extremely painful and even dangerous if there is no specialist to supervise their evolution.
Although detox can be natural, physicians often use medication to control some of the most extreme symptoms. The type of medication used and the treatment duration will depend on the severity of the addiction and type of abused substance.
- Benzodiazepines – Benzodiazepines will help reduce anxiety and irritability, two of the most widespread withdrawal symptoms from drugs like cocaine and heroin. Due to their sedative effect, they also help ease withdrawal symptoms for alcohol too. However, specialists are usually wary of prescribing benzodiazepines, as they can be addictive.
- Antidepressants – Withdrawal symptoms from drugs or alcohol can include anxiety and depressions, and even suicidal tendencies in extreme cases. After relying on drugs to keep them happy, people can no longer produce feel-good chemicals on their own. Once they stop using the substance, they become prone to depression. Antidepressants, such as Zoloft, Prozac, desipramine, fenfluramine, and phentermine can help counteract these symptoms.
Other types of medication include opioid and non-opioid agonists as well as partial agonists and antagonists
What Is the Next Step to Drug or Alcohol Addiction Recovery?
By itself, detox is certainly not a cure for substance abuse issues, but it is the first step towards recovery. It is vital to recognize the importance of a treatment plan tailored according to each patient’s needs, whether that means group, individual, or family therapy (or a combination of all.) Moreover, in most cases, substance addiction can co-occur with mental health illnesses, which means that patients will need a treatment program tailored for co-occurring disorders.
The journey to a drug and alcohol-free life starts at a detox center. Going cold-turkey and trying to quit by yourself is not only ineffective but also extremely dangerous. You need the help and guidance of someone who can teach you how to manage your addiction and regain control over your life.
