Take Control of Your Life
Drug addiction is a powerful disease – but if individuals are willing to seek help – it is possible to take back their life.
With our assistance, individuals make it through the first step in addiction recovery: detox.
Detox can be a difficult and scary process – so we urge you not to try it at home or rush into a rapid detox. This is not something that needs to be done alone.
We accept Detox patients 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Our fully staffed medically supervised detox facilities provide a safe and comfortable environment to go through the process of substance withdrawal. This allows our patients to focus solely on healing. And it gives our patients the peace of mind and confidence needed to face addiction head-on.
Safe, Comfortable Detox is the Beginning of Recovery
Each patient receives a complete assessment and individualized treatment program.
Medically Safe Detox
Our nursing and medically trained staff helps clients move through the detox phase safely and comfortably.
Fortunately, excruciating withdrawal symptoms can be avoided.
Medication is provided when needed.
Our nursing and medically trained staff gives patients the help, strength, and immediate medical attention needed to handle serious withdrawal symptoms.
Detox is never easy – but we make it as fast and comfortable as possible.
Whether addicted for several days or many years – a successful detox is the beginning of addiction recovery.
Quitting on Your Own Can Be Harmful
Quitting certain drugs without medical supervision can be dangerous or even life threatening.
The severity of the effects of self-detox will differ depending on the individual’s history of substance abuse – and medical and physical conditions.
However, the risks of detox for drug and alcohol users can be dangerous enough that a detox should never be attempted alone.
A sudden stop of drug and alcohol use can lead to:
Depression • Suicidal Thoughts • Anxiety • Tremors • Seizures • Hallucinations • Rapid Heartbeat • Cardiac Arrest
How Long Does Detox Last?
For most, detox is complete is 7 days.
However the length of detox depends on the individual and their physical condition. Detox completion time will vary – based on individual differences.
Variable factors in the length of detox include:
∙ Type of addiction
∙ Length of time drug or alcohol abuse occurred
∙ The individual’s general state of health
∙ Any underlying or contributing health and/or psychological issues
Stabilization After Detox – Treating PAWS
Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome PAWS
PAWS is a combination of emotional, mental and physical symptoms. It occurs after the initial physical withdrawal from alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, antidepressants and other substances.
What PAWS symptoms can I expect?
Each individual has unique physical, psychological, emotional and genetic factors.
Some individuals will experience one or two symptoms after detox. Others may experience multiple symptoms.
What are Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome symptoms?
- Increased Sensitivity to Stress and Discomfort
- Sleep Disturbances
- Anxiety and Depression
- Anhedonia – the inability to feel pleasure.
- Dysphoria – state of generalized unhappiness, restlessness, dissatisfaction, or frustration.
- Mood swings – from depression to euphoria.
- Brain Fog – trouble concentrating.
- Memory Problems
- Irritability or Edginess
- Fine Motor Coordination Problems
How long will PAWS last?
For long term recovery – it is critical to get effective and quality care and support during detox and addiction recovery treatment. It is equally important to have recovery support ongoing. New Start Recovery Solutions Sacramento has a complete continuum of care; including aftercare and alumni groups and support.
Our goal is for our patients to experience life-long recovery from addiction.
Next Step in Addiction Recovery
Treatment needs to be readily available. Because drug-addicted individuals may be uncertain about entering treatment, taking advantage of available services the moment people are ready for treatment is critical. Potential patients can be lost if treatment is not immediately available or readily accessible. As with other chronic diseases, the earlier treatment is offered in the disease process, the greater the likelihood of positive outcomes.Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment: A Research-Based Guide (Third Edition)
After detox, we encourage patients to immediately enter one of our addition treatment programs.
