Drug Detox

Drug Detox

Struggling with drug addiction can be one of the most isolating, challenging life experiences. Prescription drugs have become popular as doctors continue to prescribe addictive painkillers and mental health medications at an alarming rate. Additionally, illicit drugs like cocaine, heroin, and meth continue to devastate the lives of the people who become addicted to them. Finding a professional drug detox center can provide the care and support needed to break the chain of addiction.

If you are struggling with addiction and ready to seek recovery, there is no better time to take the first step than now. At Legends Recovery Center of Ohio, we know how important it is to be in a safe, supportive environment during withdrawals. Call 330.355.5040 today to start developing your detox plan with a recovery specialist.

The Cycle of Addiction

Continuing to use drugs even though they are causing problems is a telltale sign of addiction. When a person becomes addicted to a substance, it can take over every aspect of life and make it difficult to function without use. Despite the negative consequences, people who are addicted will continue to use because they feel like they need the drug.

This use can create a vicious cycle where the person becomes addicted to the drug to avoid withdrawal symptoms and then keeps taking the drug to avoid withdrawal. However, it is possible to break this cycle and start fresh in recovery with professional detox.

Drug Withdrawals

Addictive substances like cocaine, meth, Xanax, and OxyContin can cause the body and brain to become dependent on the drug. When attempting to quit taking it, the body can experience intense withdrawal symptoms. These can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Intense cravings for the drug

Some intense withdrawal symptoms can even be life-threatening. These severe symptoms are why detox should always happen under medical supervision. Detox professionals keep people under constant supervision to ensure they remain safe and comfortable as the drugs leave their bodies.

Drug Detox in Ohio

At Legends Recovery Center of Ohio, we customize each person’s detox plan to meet their unique needs. We understand that not everyone will require the same level of care, so the plans our recovery specialists develop with our clients directly address the drug in use, the history of addiction, and personal health needs.

During detox, our clients receive around-the-clock care from our recovery specialists. This care includes:

  • Monitoring vital signs
  • Offering support and encouragement
  • Administering medications
  • Providing nutritional guidance
  • Creating a positive environment

One of the most substantial pieces of our detox treatment plans is medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Medical professionals develop and administer less powerful medications that mimic the drug from which a person is detoxing. This medication helps ease withdrawal symptoms and allows the body to taper down more slowly.
