What is Medical Detox?

An inpatient detox center offers medical supervision during the withdrawal process. Certain substances (e.g., alcohol and opioids) can cause severe symptoms like seizures and high blood pressure during certain stages of withdrawal. The list of dangers associated with detoxing without medical supervision leads many people to consider entering an inpatient detox center.

During addiction, drugs and alcohol interfere with people’s ability to make rational and logical decisions. This often causes people to engage in risky and dangerous behavior that they otherwise would never consider. As a person’s tolerance begins to build, more and more of a particular substance is required. This can lead to financial woe and relationship strife. Addiction can also prevent people from working and supporting their families, increasing depression and mental health problems.

What are opioid withdrawal treatment and opiate withdrawal treatment?

Medical detox is a broad term. It encompases every treatment that uses medical care and medication to help a person go through detox safely. However, not every drug works the same way. Therefore, it is important to focus on the specifics of each individual case. To ensure patients get the exact care they need, our opioid detox center Florida offers two distinct treatment options:

  • Opioid withdrawal treatment is a type of medical detox Florida rehab centers employ to help a person go through opioid withdrawal.
  • Opiate withdrawal treatment helps our patients overcome opiate withdrawal

While said treatments do differ in some ways, their core is the same. Both instances will see a patient through the detox phase with utmost safety. This is the primary purpose of every opioid and opiate detox center Florida has. And Archstone does not stray from that purpose. Instead, we elevate it to new heights.

The benefits our Florida opioid detox center offers to its patients are second to none

Every drug causes a variety of side effects in a person. However, it does not mean that every person will exhibit the same symptoms. Addiction is an individual disease. It impacts everyone in a different way, based on many factors such as intensity and length of use, environment, and even genetics. As such, it is imperative to address the disease itself but, also, the underlying symptoms and a person’s individual needs.

When dealing with addiction, it is crucial to consider every angle and possibility. And that’s exactly what our clinicians do.

To that end, our opiate detox inpatient Florida center specialists employ methods such as:

  • 24/7 supervision by trained clinical staff;
  • Medical care tailored to individual’s needs;
  • Alleviation of withdrawal symptoms through FDA-approved medication;
  • Safe, serene, and modern accommodations that help a person focus on healing.

These factors amount to one thing above all – safety. Going through opioid withdrawal can be risky and, potentially, deadly. Being at Archstone opioid detox center in Florida during this time serves not only to make the whole ordeal more pleasant. But, above all, it serves to reduce the risk of complications to a bare minimum or, often, to the point of non-existence.

Medication used in opioid detox

In the vast majority of cases, a body that built a tolerance to drugs can’t detox on its own. At least, not completely. As such, it requires a bit of a push in the right direction. This is why every opioid and opiate detox center in Florida resorts to FDA-approved medication to aid during withdrawal. The most commonly used are:

  • Methadone (Dolophine®, Methadose®, or generic);
  • Naltrexone (Vivitrol®)
  • Buprenorphine (Sublocade®)
  • Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone®, Zubsolv®)

All these medications serve to reduce cravings and, in doing so, reduce opioid/opiate use in the long run.

Aside from mentioned drugs, opiate detox center Florida specialists often prescribe medication to help with withdrawal symptoms. Examples include Lofexidine (Lycemira®) and Clonidine (Catapres®).

Now, you may note that some medications on this list are also opioids. However, it is no reason to panic. Said opioids are frequently used in opioid or opiate withdrawal treatment because they are partial or complete opioid agonists. Meaning, they produce a similar effect, but far less intense. So, they serve to slowly but surely veer the patient off of stronger opioids. Furthermore, they help reduce cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms which can be extremely intense and dangerous. Lastly, since they are administered in controlled doses, there is no danger of getting addicted to them during detox. As such, they are perfectly safe. At our opioid and opiate detox center in Florida, you’re not exchanging one addiction for another.

Recovery Starts at Archstone Behavioral Health

While every psychoactive substance causes different withdrawal symptoms, withdrawing without supervision and assistance can put you at risk of relapse or even death. Alcohol withdrawal can cause delirium tremens. Benzodiazepine withdrawal can cause life-threatening seizures.

Types of Addiction

The two most common types of chemically addictive substances are stimulants and depressants. Both of these types of drugs affect the central nervous system. Stimulants create energizing effects while depressants slow your breathing and heart rate. Mixing multiple substances can significantly increase your risk of experiencing an overdose or other drug-related health issues.

The following drugs frequently lead to psychical dependency:

  • Alcohol;
  • Opiates, including fentanyl, heroin, OxyContin, and Vicodin;
  • Benzodiazepines (as Xanax and Klonopin);
  • Tranquilizers;
  • Methamphetamine;
  • Amphetamines.

What are opioids?

Opioids are a class of drugs widely used in medicine for pain management, including pain relief and anesthesia. Because of this, they are also known as “narcotics” or “painkillers”. The latter often gets them confused with common, over-the-counter painkillers. Still, they are nothing alike, even though they essentially do the same thing.

Most opioids are far more potent than standard OTC painkillers. However, this incredible feature comes with a major downside – high addictiveness. Opioids have the side-effect of producing intense euphoria in a user. And that is why they are some of the most misused (and abused) drugs worldwide.

Opioids (licit and illicit) are some of the most addictive drugs in existence.

This is why all opioids are controlled substances. Most of them (prescription medications in particular) are Schedule II/IIN controlled substances. However, some, such as heroin and marijuana, are even more dangerous. As such, they have sorted a class above, in Schedule I, due to high abuse potential and related risks, including death.

What to Expect at a Florida Drug & Alcohol Detox

When you arrive at Archstone’s resort-style inpatient detox facility, you will receive a full medical exam once you are admitted. As at any good drug rehab, staff will search your belongings to make sure that your belongings meet our guidelines. You will then meet with one of our clinicians to review any questions and concerns. At this point, we will take a detailed health history. Conducting a proper medical exam will help us diagnose other health concerns.

A nurse in our Florida detox center will also draw a small amount of blood to check for any abnormalities. If you are suffering from addiction, you may have neglected your health and failed to attend recommended health appointments. After getting your medical history, nurses and staff will offer medications to help treat withdrawal symptoms. We will check your vital signs and adjust medications accordingly. If you have been given a dual diagnosis, you will also meet with a psychologist during this time.

How to choose the right opioid detox center in Florida?

Previously, we mentioned the importance of picking the right opiate or opioid withdrawal treatment. While an excellent start, said choices are not final. Since every drug works in a specific way, there are more subtleties that must be addressed. Due to these factors, Archstone opioid detox center in Florida offers treatments for various substances:

Each of our treatments focuses on the specifics of related substance use disorders. But, more than that, it focuses on the person. Our clinicians adjust every treatment to suit the individual and their overall health state, physical and psychological. And this is why our opiate detox center in Florida is held in the highest regard. We do everything it takes to maximize treatment efficiency. And, in doing so, ensure our patients’ speedy recovery that sets them up for success.

How long does opioid or opiate withdrawal treatment last?

In most cases, opioid detox doesn’t take longer than a week. However, this period can vary from several days to several weeks, depending on the intensity and duration of use. So, someone who just got hooked on opioids may go through withdrawal in just a few days. But, detox from long-term use will, in most cases, take a while longer.

A typical detox timeline for mild-to-moderate cases looks approximately like this:

  • The first 24 hours: Initial withdrawal symptoms occur. This usually happens within 6 hours after the last dose. Symptoms include: intense drug craving, anxiety, muscle aches, tremors, pains, and insomnia;
  • 2nd – 3rd day: Initial symptoms grow in intensity and peak within 3 days after detox starts. New symptoms may develop to include: nausea and vomiting, stomach aches and diarrhea, exhaustion;
  • 4th – 7th day: Withdrawal symptoms begin to decline. By day 7, a patient usually experiences only faint withdrawal symptoms or none at all.

However, it is essential to note that addiction is a chronic disease. As such, some physical and psychological symptoms may re-occur periodically and even long after rehab. This is why it is highly advisable for a patient to continue addiction treatment or, at the very least, attend group meetings or alumni programs.
