The Dangers of Feeling Better after Detox

2021-09-09T15:49:26+00:00September 16, 2021|Detox|

One of the biggest issues that people run into during detox is the immediate need to “get back to their life” once they’ve gone through withdrawals and begin to feel physically better. It is well-known that patients receiving addiction treatment whether at a stand-alone detox or during detox in a month-long residential rehab have high rates of leaving treatment AMA (against medical advice, also sometimes known as ACA or against clinical advice) once they have gone through detox and begin to feel better physically or feel “normal” again.   This is extremely dangerous for the patient. For one, patients in detox or treatment for opioids run a very high risk of overdosing if they use again. After detox, the body [...]

Of all the dangerous substances people consume when people think about someone with an addiction, alcohol is the most widely used and most socially accepted. For many people, alcohol causes them no issues and often little consequences. Many people “drinking normally” during their lives- a couple drinks to relax after work or while out to dinner with friends, while out at a club or in a bar, socially at home with a spouse or their neighbors, or while out at a sporting event.   According to a 2019 study, 85.6% of American adults ages 18 and older reported that they had consumed alcohol at some point in their lifetime, while 69.5% reported that they had drank alcohol within the past [...]

2021-08-23T18:10:21+00:00August 23, 2021|Addiction Treatment|

When people think of going to detox for drugs and alcohol, typically the obvious thing they think about is the process of detox and the medications used to help them go through detox with manageable withdrawal symptoms. For many, detox is simply a process of going through withdrawals while safely and effectively medicated, to stop using dangerous drugs and alcohol and reach a place of feeling physically better. And, in a general sense, it is.   However, detox is also a vital first step in what should be a long-term process of recovery and an on-going process of healing. Addiction, alcoholism, and substance use disorder is often a long and arduous journey undertaken by an individual against their will. They [...]

After a long period of time where the world was ravaged by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, with the emergence of vaccines and continued public health and safety protocols, for several months it seemed as if the world had a handle on COVID-19.

The hope everyone had yearned for since early 2020 seemed to take hold. Unfortunately, as the later summer continued, the thread of the Delta variant, currently the predominate strain of the virus in [...]

For almost anyone suffering from substance use disorder or addiction, some level of addiction treatment is always important, and a detox to help with withdrawal management and medical stabilization is always vital. However, we also know that those suffering from addiction can always create excuses as to why they can’t go to treatment immediately. Talk to someone suffering from addiction and they almost always admit that they need help and want to stop using drugs and alcohol; to overcome their addiction and seek recovery; to find health and healing. However, tell them that they are suffering from a potentially fatal illness and to come to treatment immediately, and they will often backpedal, listing off a number of excuses as to [...]
