The Importance of Medical Detox in Addiction Treatment

Medical detox is widely regarded as the best first step of addiction treatment, and it is an essential part of successful recovery. Detoxification is the process of clearing all drugs or alcohol from your body. During this process, your body adjusts to being without the substance or substances it has become dependent on. This can cause physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms that can be unpleasant and even severe.

Common withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Insomnia and disturbed sleep patterns
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Tremors or shakes

Cravings are one of the aspects of detox that can be difficult to overcome without the support of a treatment team. When substance use is stopped, the body will often crave it. This is one of the biggest reasons why attempting to detox on your own can be so difficult. At Virtue Recovery Houston, our medical detox team provides the necessary support to help minimize cravings and keep you as comfortable as possible during detox.

What to Expect from Our Detox Treatment Program in Houston, TX

When you enter our medical detox program, you’ll first complete an intake assessment with our medical team. This helps us understand your current physical and emotional health and any special needs you may have. When designing treatment plans, we also take into account underlying conditions such as mental health concerns and co-occurring conditions.

During detox, you can expect 24/7 monitoring, receive medication to manage withdrawal symptoms if deemed necessary, meal planning and nutritional support, and therapeutic activities. A strong, solid foundation for addiction treatment starts with detox. We’ll provide the care and support you need to transition into our residential programs successfully. Detox usually lasts between five and seven days, but the duration of our program will depend on your individual needs.
