What happens during a Drug Detox?
Drug Detox – This is basically what happens across the board at any of the detox centre we deal with. You will be admitted to the detox unit. You will be greeted by the staff at the unit and given a support worker. They will get you medically admitted by one of the highly trained nurses on the unit. You will then be seen by a Specialist General Practitioner. There are also very highly trained Therapists who help you understand about your drug addiction and why you take drugs. You will be given medication which will help you through the withdrawal symptoms backed up by fully qualified nurses to make your withdrawal as comfortable as possible. You will never be in any pain.
Drug Detox – With all centres, they try to keep thing simple when it comes to medication. They tend to keep you on what substance you are taking. For example, if you are using Methadone, they will keep you on Methadone which will be used to detox you with. The way the detox will work is, they will reduce the dose over time. This will be the same if you are using Buprenorphine or Benzodiazepines. You will stay on it for your detox and again it will be reduced over time in a medically safe way. If you are using Heroin or any other Opiates before entering the detox unit, then Lofexidine, Methadone or Subutex will be used to detox you. The length of time for your detox will depend on the amount of the substance you are used to taking.
Drug Detox – You will also receive other medication to help with anxiety or any feelings of pain. This will be administered without over sedating you, to make your detox as comfortable as possible. If you ask anyone who has been through a detox in any of our drug rehabilitation centres, they will tell you how easy and pain free it was.
