The First Step in the Addiction Treatment Process
Drug and alcohol addiction causes serious long-term damage to the brain and body. These conditions compel the user to crave and pursue their next buzz or fix to the detriment of all other areas of their lives, including their physical and psychological health. For this reason, it’s critical that every treatment program begins with a thorough course of medically supervised detoxification or “detox”.
Detox is the first step in the clinical treatment process and allows patients to purge and eliminate the toxins that have built up in their systems through prolonged and untreated substance abuse. It helps to ensure that patients are medically stabilized and have the energy to successfully engage in the behavioral portion of their recovery.
RELIEF OF WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS
The detox process yields a variety of withdrawal symptoms, the scope and severity of which depend on the duration and frequency of substance abuse. Some of the more common withdrawal symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Nausea, Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Flu-Like Symptoms
- Extreme Changes in Body Temperature
- Mild to Severe Joint and Muscle Pain
- Hallucinations and Delusions
- Depression and Anxiety
PROFESSIONALLY MANAGE YOUR WITHDRAWAL
Withdrawal is one the most common causes of relapse. Despite their best intentions, users often can’t handle their symptoms and wind up going back to alcohol and other drugs. Professional detox can offer expert relief and management of withdrawal symptoms and make the ordeal as comfortable as possible.
Detox at Recovery Unplugged
Unlike many other addiction treatment facilities, Recovery Unplugged Texas offers professional, onsite, medically supervised detox. Our team of medical experts includes doctors and nurses that are trained in addiction medicine, and can provide quality treatment for all types of withdrawal. They are experienced in the clinical pathology of every type of illicit drug and can intervene in the event of a medical emergency. Many other facilities require their patients to travel offsite for detox because they simply don’t have the resources to handle the process in-house. We pride ourselves on being able to provide our patients with a comprehensive treatment experience, including a comfortable, safe, discreet and dignified detox process.
Patients stay at our comfortable, safe and private residential facility during this critical phase of their treatment process, and are monitored closely by our expert doctors and capable and compassionate nursing staff. A safe, supportive and positive detox environment can make all the difference during this admittedly difficult process. We are here to provide you or your loved one with all the assistance they need to successfully overcome their dependency on drugs and alcohol.

There’s a world of difference between trying to detox “cold-turkey” in your bedroom and getting help from an experienced and qualified medical expert. The reality is that not all detoxes are created equal. While the process is never likely to be pleasant, users will have a better chance at lasting success in recovery if they get help from an addiction-trained medical professional.
