People of all ages with substance use disorders live in fear of what will happen if their drugs are taken away. You can ensure the person you care about that Addiction Free Recovery Services will keep him or her safe and as comfortable as possible if a detoxification process is needed.

Treatment is always individualized based on the person’s needs. However, if someone is using a drug upon admission to a treatment program, one of the first things needed is to help safely remove the drugs from his or her system (often referred to as “detox”). This is important, because drugs impair the mental abilities needed to engage with and stay in treatment.

When patients first stop using drugs, they can experience a variety of physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms, including depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders; restlessness, and sleeplessness. Remind your loved one that treatment centers are very experienced in helping patients get through this process and keeping them safe during it. Depending on your loved one’s situation, there may also be medications to reduce these symptoms, which make it easier to stop using.

What is Treatment Like?

Everyone entering treatment for a substance use disorder is unique. That is why the patient and our treatment staff work together to develop an individualized treatment plan. It may include some type of behavioral treatment (“talk therapy”) designed to engage the patient in the treatment process, alter destructive attitudes and behaviors related to drug use, and increase healthy life skills. Behavioral treatment can also enhance the effectiveness of medications that might be available and help patients stay in treatment longer.

Addiction Free Recovery Services has trained and experienced counselors that are ready to help you in the recovery of any of the following addictions. Call us at 209-579-3301 to find out how we can assist in your recovery and help you find the success you seek.
