The reality of the situation is that there is no way to fully stop withdrawal symptoms from happening. After years of drug and alcohol abuse, feeling dope sick when getting clean is most likely the driving focus that keeps people from getting help. A Better Today highly encourages you to not do this withdraw process alone. The first steps in recovery are the most intimidating. Having a strong support staff cheering you on, inspiring you to pull through, and encouraging you to overcome the hardship will start your treatment off on the right foot.
Depending on the length of the addiction and substances abused, the withdrawal process will vary in intensity. Some of the most commonly experienced withdrawal symptoms are vomiting, headaches, sensitive skin, sweating and shaking. A Better Today’s around-the-clock care is how our team monitors clients to make sure that their needs are being met and they are safely withdrawing. We have a nurse on the premises at all times to ensure a safe withdrawal.
In certain cases, medications can be provided to clients. For example, ABT might supply Buprenorphine or Naloxone to act as neuro-blockers to keep someone safe while going through alcohol or prescription drug withdrawal. Medication is not always the answer, which is why ABT’s medical staff will determine an appropriate stabilization plan for each client when he or she arrives at our facility.
ABT understands that clients inherently fear withdrawal symptoms. That is why we ask for your trust, that once you step through our doors, we will do our best to make the transition from active addiction to recovery as smooth as possible. We are here to help you get back on your feet, both figuratively and literally.
