Without detoxing and experiencing the symptoms of withdrawal, you will never achieve drug or alcohol addiction recovery. While this sounds bleak, withdrawal is actually your body’s way of cleansing itself of the drug’s toxins. It is also your brain’s process for resetting itself to normal functioning. In residential detox, you are kept comfortable, secure and safe throughout this process to get you into the recovery you need.

Why Residential Detox?

Many people stress over detox, wondering if they can get through the physical and psychological effects of withdrawal. In fact, this stress keeps many people stuck in their drug or alcohol abuse. They mistakenly believe it is easier to stay stuck in addiction than to come out of it.

By getting the help you need in a residential detox, all of these worries and stresses of withdrawal are let go. Detox treatment professionals will keep you safe, comfortable and secure from the first moments after using your substances for the last time. This support continues through your last moments of addiction, into sobriety.

In residential detox you live at the facility while going through withdrawal. This means you have 24/7 support for the detox you need. You sleep, eat and relax at the detox facility. Supportive professionals who understand your journey monitor your comfort and wellness during this time.

At an accredited drug detox facility you forge a path to recovery under medical supervision. Medications help you feel as good as possible, without risking additional substance abuse or addiction problems. This means your symptoms in residential detox are not as bad as they would be at home or in non-medical facilities.

Make the Best of Your Residential Detox Experience

Medical professionals and addiction specialists at accredited detox programs work hard to help you manage withdrawal symptoms. At the same time, you can make the best of your detox experience.

During detox, you can start making plans for your future. You can clear your life of negative influences and others with whom you abused substances. Individual counseling helps you acknowledge past trauma, anger and other emotions leading to your substance abuse. You also gain the support of friends and family.

In detox, you need to think about your addiction and the need for recovery. It is important to make your needs a priority, from here forward. Have friends or family clean your home and car of drugs, alcohol, and paraphernalia. Start listing the problems addiction caused in your life, so you recognize why it is not worth it to use drugs or alcohol in the future.

Most importantly, spend time at rest in detox. Relax, clear your mind of stress and focus on what is important. Residential programs for detox have many services available to you. Take advantage of these, so you emerge from detox feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to take your next steps toward lasting recovery.
