Long Island Interventions Offers Drug Alcohol Detox

Drug and Alcohol Detox Programs

A drug and alcohol detox involves removing the substance from your body so that you can move on to the next phase of treatment without the buildup of toxins that precipitate withdrawal symptoms. A physical dependence on a substance of choice occurs when an individual has an increased tolerance, and they will experience painful withdrawal symptoms should they stop taking the substance abruptly.
A physical dependence feeds the continued cycle of addiction, as the addict or alcoholic needs to continue taking the substance every single day to avoid withdrawal. The goal of a medical detox involves a complete physiological and physical healing of long-term drug addiction and alcoholism. Many detox programs achieve this first through stabilization, followed by a gentle detoxification.

Symptoms of Physical Addiction

Since the components of drugs vary, the signs and symptoms of withdrawal are also diverse. If an addict or alcoholic discontinues their substance use, the symptoms of withdrawal can include:
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Body Aches
  • Sweating
  • Seizures
  • High Temperatures
  • Changes to blood pressure
  • Diarrhea
  • Shaking or body tremors
  • Restless leg syndrome
