What Is Drug Detox?

Before beginning any drug rehab program, the first crucial step is to safely remove the influences of drugs from your system. This process is called a drug detox. During this time, your body will have to relearn how to function without the chemicals and influences of drugs. When you are engaged in active drug addiction, your body becomes accustomed to having the drugs within your system to be able to perform routine, daily tasks such as simply getting out of bed or going to work. When you abruptly stop using drugs, your body will go into panic mode, trying to adjust to a way of functioning without these harsh chemical components. This often results in adverse side effects known as drug withdrawal symptoms.

Drug Withdrawal Symptoms

During drug detox in Santa Ana, your programs will be individualized to meet your needs and address the withdrawal symptoms you are experiencing. Depending on your drug of choice, there will be different withdrawal symptoms that you will experience. There will be different methods of treatment and medical care that can be provided for each specific drug that will be sure to keep you feeling comfortable and safe throughout your detox process.

Common withdrawal symptoms that can occur throughout drug detox programs are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Fever
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle pain/joint pain
  • Tremors
  • Chills
  • Excessive sweating
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Respiratory complications

As you experience your withdrawal symptoms, you will have access to on-site medical doctors and nurses who provide adequate medical interventions, including medications. The use of medication will help to lower the risk of experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms and maintain your symptoms to a mild or moderate level. As you can see, there is potential for side effects that target your mental health. Our compassionate counselors will be by your side every step of the way to ensure that you have the psychological support you need to remain focused on your overarching goals of long-term sobriety.

How Long Does Drug Detox Last?

Patients often express levels of concern for how long they will have to endure their drug detox process. While most people have seen or heard about the horror stories within social media or mainstream media of detox patients feeling the withdrawal side effects for a prolonged period, this is simply not the case for most patients. While it is hard to predict how long you will go through detox, we typically see patients staying within their detox program for up to seven days. Commonly, patients will begin to feel the first stages of withdrawal about eight hours after their last dose of drugs. The peak of your symptoms will usually occur within three to seven days of your drug detox program. This is when our time will monitor you closely to be readily available to provide you with medical and emotional treatment when needed. By day eight, patients will often begin to regain their physical and emotional health enough to enter their drug rehab program.

When to Seek Drug Detox Treatment

Drug addiction is a progressive, chronic disease that can easily sneak up on an individual. You most likely did not jump right into your level of drug addiction at the beginning. Commonly, patients will begin to use drugs as a recreational activity. Over time, it becomes more and more prevalent and used as your primary coping tool for challenges that you face. Addiction affects each person differently, making it hard for some to decipher if it is time to seek help for their drug use.

Patients who have experienced some or all of the following should begin to think about addressing their drug habit:

  • Engaging in high-risk behavior while under the influence or obtaining drugs
  • Experiencing financial difficulties due to drug use
  • Isolating from those you care about
  • Changing your social circle to match one of the other fellow drug users
  • Difficulty maintaining employment or decrease in work performance
  • Thought patterns become centered around drug use, finding drugs, and when you can use drugs again
  • Increase in conflict with others
  • Telling yourself you will stop using drugs but find yourself right back to drug use soon again.
  • Lying about your drug use or hiding your drug use
  • Trying to quit drugs but experiencing an onset of withdrawal symptoms

What Happens After Drug Detox?

The goal of drug detox in Santa Ana is to help you regain a sense of normalcy and health again by eliminating drug use from your routine. This is only the first step in effectively healing from addiction. As you regain a clear sense of mind, you will be fully able to look within to gain perspective on what has been negatively influencing your ability to remain sober and abstinent from drugs. A drug rehab program will invite patients to participate in remarkably effective therapeutic sessions that will allow you a safe space to dive deeper into what feelings and thoughts you have been suppressing with the use of drugs. Mental health and addiction often go hand in hand, which is why a good drug rehab program will work to target both areas of concern and teach you the skills you need to handle side effects and triggers from both co-occurring disorders.

Depending on your level of need, you will have the option to stay for a minimum of 30 days within an inpatient drug rehab program. While others may want an extended period to focus on their personal healing and growth and opt to stay for a 60 or 90-day program. When you complete your inpatient drug rehab program, you will have access to outpatient and aftercare services that will work to solidify your new life in recovery and give you support as you transition back into your day-to-day life.
