Drug Detox

The beginning of drug addiction treatment is detoxification — controlled and medically supervised withdrawal from the drug.

By itself, drug detox is not a solution, because most addicts will eventually resume taking the drug unless they get further help.

The withdrawal symptoms of a drug detox— agitation; anxiety; tremors; muscle aches; hot and cold flashes; sometimes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea —Drug detox symptoms are not life-threatening, but are extremely uncomfortable. The intensity of the reaction depends on the dose and speed of withdrawal. Revive Detox is here to help you stay comfortable through this uncomfortable time. Short-acting opiates tend to produce more intense but briefer drug detox symptoms. The effect of a single dose of heroin, a relatively short-acting drug, lasts 4–6 hours, and the withdrawal reaction lasts for about a week.

No single approach to detoxification is guaranteed to be best for all addicts. The anti-hypertensive (blood pressure lowering) drug clonidine is sometimes added to shorten the drug detox withdrawal time and relieve physical symptoms.

Suboxone has been shown to work better than other medications for treating withdrawal from opiates, and it can shorten the length of a drug detox.
