Safe Medical Detox Program
Medical Detox Program
For many of our clients, their drug or alcohol addiction has progressed to the point at which, if they stop, they experience painful withdrawal symptoms. At Hickory House, our medical staff assess each client and prescribes a detox protocol to alleviate these symptoms.
How Does Detox Work?
In order to understand how detoxification works, it’s first important to understand how addiction works. Addiction changes your body and your brain. They both become dependent on the addictive substance to function normally and in its absence you experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
Withdrawal from alcohol or opiates produce some of the most uncomfortable symptoms. These include:
- Intense headaches
- Muscle aches
Our medical team will determine the best medical protocol to alleviate these symptoms as your body regains the ability to function normally without the addictive substance.
In some cases, withdrawal from alcohol can be serious and life threatening. If our medical team determines that the severity of your detox requires a level of medical care that we do not provide, we will refer you to an appropriate facility prior you beginning treatment at Hickory House.
What Happens After Detox?
Once through detox, the bulk of the substance will no longer be in the body and most individuals will be free of acute withdrawal symptoms. Our clinical team will meet with you and outline a treatment plan and help you get started on the road to recovery,
