Those who are looking for drug and alcohol detox options and possible addiction treatment can use the Florida Detox Helpline to get them on the right track to recovery. Detox options can include both regular and rapid detox and from there each individual can decide where and how they go about a treatment program.
Detox programs and natural detox
Detoxing from drugs and alcohol should normally be conducted at a registered detox facility. Patients normally attend these programs when they are fresh off of a binge. Many of these programs are medically assisted and they monitor and administer detox medications to patients to help them better deal with the pains associated with the detox process.
Withdrawals from specifically alcohol, opiates and benzodiazepines can be very painful physically and often require the use of a medically assisted facility. Alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawals can be life threatening and present terrible health risks to those who undertake them if not treated properly. Patients will typically attend these programs for one to two weeks, until the drugs are no longer in their system.
The NAD/NTR rapid detox method provides an innovative approach that treats the detox process on a deep-rooted level by utilizing the naturally occurring coenzyme nicotinamide adenide dinucleotide (NAD) to help detoxify the body of all harmful byproducts introduced by alcohol or drug addiction and works to replenish the brain of all nutrients that could have been diminished during their substance use. This form of detox uses naturally occurring vitamins and amino acids to help restore the body and mind from the damage done to them from prolonged alcohol and drug abuse. This method also provides the patient with a speedier detox process. Patients who have used this method have reported that withdrawal symptoms have significantly decreased and in some cases were fully eliminated.
Further treatment options
After a person has undergone NTR/NAD detox it is normally a good idea that they should seek further treatment. A treatment program helps to ensure that the individual is able to stay sober and learns to tools and skills they need to cope with cravings or stressors that could otherwise trigger the need to use drugs or drink. There are several types of treatment programs a person can choose from including the following:
- Inpatient or residential treatment program: Inpatient treatment programs offer the highest level of care for clients. In these programs, clients reside at a facility and are subject to the program’s rule and regulations. Patients typically stay a minimum of 30 days but can continue to reside at an inpatient program for a couple months, normally around 90 days, in these programs and attend regular group therapy, individual counseling and recovery support groups. They will also be subject to regular drug screenings to help ensure they are sober during their treatment
- Outpatient treatment program: Outpatient treatment programs offer many of the same amenities as inpatient treatment but do not require patients to reside at the facility. They are often referred to intensive outpatient (IOP) and are normally offered to patients after they have completed an inpatient program or if they can’t afford to be away from their work or home for an extensive period of time. Individuals will be subject regular drug screenings during this time, just as they were during inpatient treatment. They are sometimes used as part of a comprehensive treatment program, which begins with a patient attending an inpatient treatment and progressing into sober living and attending IOP groups
- Sober living: Sober living facilities require clients to be sober to attend them and residents are required to submit periodic drug screenings to ensure they remain sober. These places provide clients with a safe and sober place to live, where they can fully focus on their recovery. Residents are encouraged to work while living in these facilities to help them get back in their feet more easily later on and work among the rest of society. Some clients will attend IOP groups while they live in a sober living house, but this is generally not required. Residents are permitted to stay at these facilities as long they wish to continue live by the rules of the house
Patients often may incorporate multiple approaches as part of a comprehensive treatment program to help them transition back into society. Often after going through one or more of these types of treatment programs, many individuals will also remain connected with a recovery support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous(NA). Recovery support groups are an invaluable resource for those seeking long term sobriety. These programs offer clients at treatment centers and the general public groups of others who they can relate to and turn to when facing their common problems with addiction.
Recovery is way of life that may seem foreign to many and treatment alone is alone is rarely enough to help anybody stay sober long term. One must works on themselves continuously to ensure they do not fall back into old behavior and stay connected within their support group to ensure they will enjoy a wonderful life beyond their dreams in recovery.
