Our country has a drug problem. Millions of people struggle with addictions but don’t receive treatment. This disparity may be because when it comes to addiction, the first step towards recovery is drug detox. The detox process tends to scare people away. The thought of withdrawal is intimidating, scary even. It is Phoenix Rising’s goal to help you confront that fear and make that first step. With the right team there to support you, detox doesn’t have to be so scary.
We Understand the Need for Drug Detox
A common insecurity for people considering detox is that the environment will feel clinical or even judgemental. At Phoenix Rising, though, it is quite the contrary. Our team understands your struggle because we’ve been in your shoes. We also recognize that every person’s journey to recovery is entirely unique.
Addiction can take a large toll on you and your loved ones. Whether the strain is financial or emotional, we are here to ease the struggle. We’re not only here to remind you that you’re not alone, but also to make this first step as comfortable and conquerable as possible.
Why Do I Need to Go Through A Drug Detox Program?
No matter what drug you became addicted to, detoxification is critical to the recovery process. When you start taking a substance, it begins to rewire your brain chemistry. The rewiring makes the brain think that it has to have the drug to function correctly. The rewiring is called dependence, and it is why you crave the drug and feel like you can’t manage everyday life without it.
When you suddenly stop taking the drug, your brain is left feeling out of balance. It abruptly has to spring back to its former condition and rewire itself a second time to make up for the sudden chemical imbalance.
The withdrawal process is different depending on what type of drug you are taking. Opiates and benzodiazepines have more physical withdrawal symptoms, while other drugs such as cocaine and ecstasy have more emotional symptoms. The process is also different for everyone.
The process depends on several factors, including:
- How long you’ve been taking the drug
- How much of the substance you need to get the desired effects
- Your body type
- Your gender
The good news is that while the withdrawal process can be challenging, your brain will bounce back to its original state reasonably quickly. For most people, you will be through the withdrawal process in just a couple of weeks.
What Is Drug Detox?
Detox, short for detoxification, is the process of letting your body rid itself of all chemicals. Depending on how long, how much, and what substance you’ve been using, drug detox will vary in length. For some people, it will take 5-7 days, for others it could take up to two weeks.
More importantly, detox is an uncomfortable experience. Depending on the level of addiction, detoxing alone can even be dangerous. Phoenix Rising, the best drug detox center Palm Springs has to offer, provides you with medical supervision throughout. This way you will not only be safe, but made comfortable as possible.
Withdrawal can also leave many people feeling vulnerable. To combat this fragility, we provide a number of programs, activities, and therapy options. You may wish to only minimally participate in these options while you recover, but they are there to help make sure your recovery is long-lasting. Our therapy options range from group, to cognitive, to equine or art.
Detox is covered by most insurances as well.
A Holistic Approach
A holistic approach to drug detox means that we don’t offer medication to assist the withdrawal process. Instead, we offer programs and therapies meant to heal your mind, body, and soul. We don’t want to address dependency by introducing another chemical. We want to help you find balance in order to achieve optimal health.
These therapies range from mediation, to art therapy, to equine therapy. They are designed to help you find peace. The holistic approach is aided by our beautiful facility. The surroundings are picturesque and serene. Our amenities include a pool, jacuzzi, a ranch, and an in-house gym.
Through these options, your detox can also be tailored to your specific needs. Our accredited and compassionate staff is here to help you heal.
