List of Alcohol and Drug Detoxification Centers In Gastonia, North Carolina

How Detoxification Works in Gastonia, North Carolina

For many clients in a drug addiction rehabilitation facility, the initial stages of detoxification can be severe. As a direct result, the center may have mental health and medical professionals on standby to provide you with the effective support, management, and oversight you need as your body purges the drugs you previously consumed.

For example, several hours after you take your last heroin dose, you might experience withdrawal, which may be expressed as:

  • Anxiety
  • Excessive yawning
  • Agitation
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sweating
  • Runny nose
  • Muscle aches
  • Increasing tearing of the eyes

Even though you may be under the impression that these withdrawal effects will not threaten your life, it is likely they may be so unbearable that you would be inclined to begin abusing heroin again. This is why you should receive medical and psychiatric care while undergoing detox.

In addition, you can experience other problems when you check into a detoxification center - especially in the first couple of hours after your last dose of the drugs your body is dependent on.

During this time, the detox facility in Gastonia will deal with the most urgent of these problems initially before they achieve total stabilization. Specific problems you may run into include but are not always limited to:

  • Injury
  • Medical illness
  • Symptoms of psychosis
  • Threat to self
  • Violence

You may also experience intense cravings for your preferred intoxicating and mind-altering substances. To make sure you do not relapse, the detoxification might prescribe specific replacement medications or taper you off from these substances.

To ensure that you finally cease abusing drugs, therefore, you should make sure that you undergo detox at an accredited Gastonia, NC. facility with extremely experienced addiction rehabilitation experts and medical staff. Although the process may be painful and cause discomfort, it is nothing compared to the devastation that your continued alcohol and drug abuse and drug addiction can have on your life.
