Drug & Alcohol withdrawal Medication
The medication we administer will stop cravings, and nausea. In the morning the client will not feel sick, or have an upset stomach. The medication we administer will make the client feel like they have had a drink, or taken their drugs, hence will stop the cravings. The detox is half the battle done.
Now the next stage, which also happens during the clients residential alcohol or drug detox is to find the underlying issues that are causing their addiction. We also need to get the client through the psychological aspects of addiction. We then need to restore the clients natural appetite, and restore the clients natural sleep pattern. Once all this is done, we need to set up coping mechanisms to stop the client going back to their addiction. That is basically what happens during an alcohol or drug detox at one of our centres.
