Detox for Any and All Drug Types

Detox is an essential first step on the road to drug and alcohol recovery. Detox centers and their rehab programs are both crucial components of the drug rehabilitation process, for the simple reason that addiction is, at root, a mental, spiritual, and physical disease.

Why Detox Matters At The Watershed

Drug and alcohol detox helps recovering addicts get free of the physiological dependencies that underlie substance abuse, thus preparing them to face the emotional and psychological rigors of the drug treatment process. Detoxification that works, simply stated, is one that helps you achieve meaningful, lasting, and long-term sobriety. Detox matters because no addict can get better without it, and because detoxification from drug and alcohol addictions is crucial to your prospects for lasting, long-term health.

At The Watershed’s detox center, we can make the detoxification process work for you. A full team of medical doctors and medical staff will make sure your stay with us is effective and comfortable. Don’t wait another day to find that out for yourself.

Please, call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768. We’re here. We can help. All you have to do is say the word.

Drug Types & What the Detox Is Like

While a drug is a drug and an addiction is an addiction, each drug is different and may bring different withdrawal symptoms than the last or next. For example, a methamphetamine addiction and a cocaine addiction doesn’t typically have nearly as much of a physical withdrawal as heroin or other opioids. While a physical dependency on heroin and opioids may leave you with sickness, cold sweats, diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting, a cocaine addiction or meth addiction has a less physical withdrawal and may leave you feeling depressed, irritable, shaky, sleepy, and hungrier than normal.

The reality is that some drugs have similar withdrawal symptoms, but not every drug addiction requires you to be weaned off the substance. However, a detox does occur for every drug. Some you may feel more than others and sometimes the withdrawal effects are not for months later, which is referred to as Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome or PAWS for short.

Finding a Detox Center

The detox center that’s right for you is the one that understands just how important detox is to addiction treatment – any type of alcohol or drug addiction treatment! Some detoxification centers marginalize the detox process as if it were just an insignificant adjunct to rehabilitation and recovery.

But that’s not right. The truth, again, is that detoxification is nothing short of vital to rehabilitation and recovery…and only those addiction treatment centers that employ the most advanced detoxification methods can expect to help their residents get sober for good. The bottom line here is that you have to do your homework. Before you enroll in a rehabilitation center, it’s incumbent upon you to ensure that it can meet all of your detox needs.

An addiction treatment program that includes a thorough period in a drug detox center really can help you beat addiction for good. One that doesn’t cannot. At The Watershed, we know that detox comes first, whether you are suffering from a methamphetamine addiction, heroin addiction, alcoholism, marijuana addiction, cocaine addiction, or benzo addiction. We can only hope we’ll get the chance to prove it to you!

Detox at The Watershed

Detox at The Watershed succeeds because we’re good at it and because we care about it. Our programs employ an advanced range of medical therapies, all of them tailored to particular forms of addiction. Heroin detox, for example, is a unique process that poses its own unique challenges. To do it well demands the utmost level of expertise. At The Watershed, that’s what we’re all about.
Our detox center is specially designed to ensure that recovering addicts get all the care and support they need to weather the withdrawal process. Again, a competent detox program is vital to your prospects for long-term recovery, especially insofar as it prepares you to meet the challenges of rehab itself.

If you’re going to get better, your time in a detox center has to leave you sound in both body and mind.

At The Watershed, we won’t settle for anything less. Please, call us today at 1-800-861-1768. The Watershed knows what you need to beat addiction. It’s up to you to ask for it.

Understanding Your Detox Program

Your detox program can only succeed to the extent that it helps your body recover from the physical dependencies associated with addiction in a safe, supportive environment. Drug addiction works by warping an addict’s metabolism so that he or she literally needs drugs to sustain normal systemic function.

Drug and alcohol detoxification both work by gently weaning your body off of drugs and drug chemicals, thus allowing for the restoration of normal metabolic function. Remember, a “comfortable detox” does not have to be a contradiction in terms. At The Watershed, our detoxification programs aim to make detox fast and gentle, so as to better prepare addicts to face the challenges that lie ahead.

Detox, even from opiates, is only painful if it isn’t done well. At The Watershed, we know how to make it work. For your own sake, here’s hoping you find the courage to let us show you, no matter what types of drugs or substances you may be hooked on.

Detox and Drug Rehab

It’s important to note in conclusion that detox is the beginning of the drug rehab process, not the end. As important as your detox program will be to your long-term recovery, the time you spend in a detoxification center is at best a precursor to everything that follows it. There are many different drug types, but The Watershed can help you detox safely off any substance so that you can receive critical treatment.

To that end, The Watershed aims to integrate detox as intimately as possible into our drug rehabilitation programs, thus allowing patients to build on the momentum gained from the detox experiences in pursuing more comprehensive addiction treatment.

Remember, addiction recovery never comes easy. Those addicts who get sober for good invariably struggle a little bit in the process, even in a drug rehab center like The Watershed. But make no mistake, the effort is worth it.

Addiction treatment at The Watershed will change your life. To get sober, after all, is to rediscover the world as you used to know it, and yourself as you used to be. To get sober is to remember why you ever believed life to be worth living in the first place. It starts with detox. And, more importantly, it starts with you.
