Addiction is a disease of the mind, body and soul. In order to heal mentally and spiritually, you must first begin the process of healing physically. The first step to help you through your journey in recovery is drug detoxification. Detoxing off of drugs without medical supervision can be dangerous and potentially life-threatening. A medically supervised drug detoxification is necessary in order to prepare you for the mental and emotional aspects of your journey in recovery. There are a number of psychological and physiological symptoms associated with drug detoxification.
Signs and symptoms of drug withdrawal may include:
- Delirium tremens
- Mood swings
- Cold sweats
- Muscle and bone pain
- Suicidal ideation
Addicts that attempt to detox on their own often find the physical discomfort and emotional stress too great, and return to using to relieve their symptoms. However, with a proper, medically assisted drug detoxification, we can keep withdrawal symptoms to a minimum and allow you to safely detox.
Recovering Souls is a free service that can refer you to a treatment facility that offers drug detoxification. It is our goal to make sure that you remain as comfortable as possible so that you may continue on your road to recovery. It is important to remember that while detox is the first step in your journey through recovery, it is not the only step. In order to achieve lasting sobriety, follow up treatment is critical. Without follow up treatment that addresses the underlying causes of addiction, many addicts will return to using. Neglecting to treat the mental and spiritual aspects of addiction has caused many addicts to relapse. Early sobriety can be an overwhelming time for addicts, who without drugs to deal with their stress and emotions, may be feeling especially vulnerable. It is important that they can receive the support and guidance they need to build a strong foundation in their sobriety.
Our free services are available to help you at each phase of your journey through recovery. Research has shown that addicts who complete long-term treatment have a much higher success rate. In addition to detox centers, we work with inpatient and outpatient rehabs, as well as sober living facilities, in order to provide our clients with the support they need at each step of the way.
