Detox Rehab – Call (937) 358-6355 and Get Help Today!
Our center is a safe, medically supervised facility that helps patients from Dayton, OH take their first step toward sobriety by undergoing the process of detoxification. The objective of the detoxification process (often referred to as detox) is to purge drugs and pollutants from the body. It is very important to be aware of the difference between detox and rehab, so that detox is not confused with rehab. Detox only helps a person through withdrawals from substance abuse, while rehab teaches the skills they will need for a life of recovery. Detox issues range from person to person, and, in many instances, the ‘cold turkey’ technique isn’t safe. Although some people might find the possibility of detox intimidating, our program takes safety measures to make sure that detox is safe and suitable for every client.

Kinds of Detox
The two sorts of detox most often used in detox centers are known as medically supervised withdrawal and social detoxification. Addiction professionals might decide upon medically supervised withdrawal or social detoxification depending upon:
- the type of substance being abused
- period of addiction
- age of the patient
- psychological state of the client
- physical well-being of the patient
- what kind of environment the specialists think will be the most beneficial to the client
People who benefit the most from medically supervised withdrawal include individuals that have been hooked on:
- pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical grade)
- barbiturates or sedatives
- opioids (heroin, hydrocodone, codeine)
There are a few detox medicines that, if prescribed by a professional, can ease some of the unpleasant, distressing withdrawal symptoms that those substances cause. Also, it’s essential for people affected by severe alcoholism, or who are abusing alcohol along with different substances, to undergo medically supervised withdrawal. Additionally, anybody that has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has a major sickness, or has been diagnosed with particular psychological illnesses requires medically supervised withdrawal so as to safely wean themselves from drugs or alcohol. Medically supervised withdrawal facilities use medications to avoid medical conditions due to withdrawal, including hallucinations, seizures, or other physical and psychological issues that can be a result of withdrawing ‘cold turkey’ from alcohol and other substances.
Social detoxification is most effective for addicts that are expected to only experience moderate withdrawal symptoms from drugs such as:
- occasional opioid use
- occasional alcohol use
The social detoxification method tries to assist clients during their cravings and withdrawal without medicine, however, the procedure is nevertheless monitored by medical staff and counselors who manage the patients’ well-being. In social detoxification, patients are not separated into institution-like rooms as they detox, but are urged to live and socialize with other people in recovery. This will help addicts prepare for a treatment program, where they will be working towards recovery together with a group of other addicts.
