What to Expect at Our Detox Center
November 2, 2018
There are many places you can go to detox but if you are looking for a top of the line rehab process, some places are better than others. JourneyPure detox center provides a professional, comfortable, and high-end experience that ensure your detox is as smooth and painless as possible.
Not everyone who gets clean and sober needs detox. If you are considering seeking help for substance abuse, alcohol abuse or medication abuse, chances are high that you have probably tried to stop on your own and been faced with the physical pain and mental anguish that ensues. Attending a professional detox center is a critical step on the journey of never having to experience that pain again, so here is what you can expect at ours.
First Order of Business, Getting Here
Making the decision to attend treatment can sometimes feel like the end of the road when in reality it can be the beginning of a whole new you. People that struggle with addiction often go to great lengths to manage their using in order to continue their day to day lives, but what happens when your using actually starts to control you?
Some of the common signs of addiction are:
- Spending large amounts of money on substances
- Ignoring or forgetting important dates, meetings, commitments
- Finding a loss of interest in once favored hobbies or activities
- Having an unhealthy work-life balance
- Relationship issues
- Lying, manipulating, hiding your using
- Obsessing about using, getting, and having enough to get you through the day
- Craving the substance when you do not have them
- Trying to stop using the drug but being unsuccessful
It can be hard to finally admit to oneself that they are struggling with addiction, but it doesn’t equal poor moral character or a weak-will. Addiction can happen to anyone, and JourneyPure detox center is capable and qualified to help you get back on your feet, no matter what type of detox you may need.
Medication Assisted Detox
For many substances and for alcohol, the mind and body will go through an intense acute withdrawal phase that can create those excruciating and torturous physical and mental side effects. The detox center at JourneyPure Center for Professional Excellence provides an easier way to stop using harmful substances through the precisely monitored administration of medications that will alleviate these symptoms.
Some medications work better than others for each person. These medications will be prescribed tailored to your needs by a resident Physician and monitored closely to ensure a smoother recovery process for you. Providing a watchful eye and medications that will help ease the common symptoms of withdrawal will be a crucial tool to help prevent cravings which can lead back to a relapse.
Detoxing from certain substances can actually be deadly. People who frequently abused benzodiazepines, alcohol, and methamphetamines have actually died as a result of withdrawal. JourneyPure detox centers provide each client with an individualized approach to monitoring their detox process around the clock.
JourneyPure is proud to provide professional doctors, nurses, and psychiatric medical professionals to our clients, ensuring that each one is remaining comfortable and safe. This team of professionals will be there to provide high-quality care, answer any questions, and support you through this difficult time.
Whole Body Healing
JourneyPure detox centers believe that whole body recovery is the best avenue for long-term recovery. Our detox center won’t just keep you to your room until you leave, but we invite you to engage with your recovery through:
- Healthy eating
- Speaking with a therapist
- Discussing a plan of recovery
- Taking exercise when you are ready
- Learning about recovery programs
For a majority of people with substance abuse struggles, once the drugs or alcohol wear off, they find that they are left with themselves, a place most people find very uncomfortable in early sobriety.
The last phase of our detox process allows you to connect with professional therapists, case managers, and doctors to discuss the long-term goals you have for yourself and the best ways to get there.
Once the body is detoxed fully, the work on the mind starts. Many people struggle with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and cravings in the first few weeks of sobriety, which is why going through this process in a professional detox center is so much more beneficial for both you and your loved ones. JourneyPure encourages each client to work through this phase with one of our therapists and to discuss options of continuing on in the JourneyPure program.
The Journey Afterwards
A majority of our clients at JourneyPure are professionals who have gotten a little off track. This does not mean that your career and life are over, but it does mean that you may need some time to heal. Our detox centers are not only a serene place for you to get physically sober from drugs and alcohol, but they are also a place where you can look into the future.
Detox is usually just the first step. Many people are under the false assumption that a quick weekend in detox is all they need to get back on their feet, however, research continues to show that a longer stay in treatment, with access to proper medications, professional therapists, and a structured routine without the use of drugs or alcohol often lends stronger results for people who are looking for long-term sobriety.
It may be difficult for you to imagine placing your life on hold to go to treatment, but our detox centers provide you with professionals that can help you navigate through the process of getting your affairs in order, informing and filing the appropriate paperwork that suits you and planning your individualized treatment program.
Addiction doesn’t have to rule your life; recovery is possible, and JourneyPure detox centers are ready when you are.
