- managing the risk and discomfort of withdrawal

Detoxification is the process of removing toxins from the body and medically assisted detoxification is a recommended initial step of treatment for a wide range of addicted individuals. For anyone who has developed a significant substance dependency it is likely to be an essential first step before therapeutic treatment can begin.

Dependency means that the body has adapted itself to tolerate persistently elevated levels of a substance. This means, in turn, that the person begins to experience the need to continue taking the drug, simply to feel ‘normal’. Once that substance is withdrawn, dependent individuals will often experience a host of mental and physical health symptoms that are uncomfortable and potentially dangerous.

These can include:

  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal distress
  • Appetite changes
  • Irritability and agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Strong drug cravings
  • Pain
  • Disorientation
  • Seizure
  • Coma

The only truly safe way to detox is under medical supervision. At Phoenix Programmes this is done under the care of Dr Charles Triay and his medical team. During the detoxification process you will also be visited daily by your therapy team to ensure that you are ready to commence treatment once detox is complete.
