Drug Detox Centers in Syosset, NY

Drug Detox Centers in Syosset, NY

When addiction gets so bad that it causes physical withdrawal symptoms to occur once a person stops taking drugs, it is time for professional drug detoxification. The types of drugs that cause a person to become physically dependent are heroin, fentanyl, all opiate pain medications, alcohol, and benzodiazepines. Nearly all addictive drugs cause withdrawal symptoms, but some are not as severe but will cause discomfort. Cocaine, methamphetamine, club drugs (ecstasy, ketamine, etc.), and marijuana do cause physical withdrawal symptoms but are usually not extreme.

For someone who is suffering from physical, mental, or emotional withdrawal symptoms, the only safe way to help them is to get them to a drug detox center that offers medical supervision. Withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening, and without medical care by professionals who specialize in drug addiction detox, it is very unsafe for someone to detox all by themselves. The potential for a dangerous relapse that could cause an accidental overdose is very likely. People who have become addicted to drugs will seek more drugs to relieve their discomfort, which increases the danger of an accidental overdose.

Syosset NY Drug Detox Programs

The people who are addicted to opioids, alcohol, and benzodiazepines are at most risk for accidental overdose during withdrawal.

The process of getting someone admitted into a detox center, fortunately, is easy. The detox centers we support insist that a person be admitted within 24 hours from when they are willing to go to detox. By entering a rehab quickly, it means there is less of a chance that the person will change their mind and run the risk of a dangerous relapse that could result in death. Once a person has accepted help or asks for help for their addiction, the most crucial step is to get them admitted into a professional drug detox center quickly.

Detoxification varies for each individual, and the amount of time it takes to completely detox all drugs and or alcohol out of the body most commonly takes from 10 days up to two or even three weeks. The time range is not definitive, as some addicts or alcoholics will require more or less care. The type of care that people receive at a Syosset drug detox center is around the clock medical monitoring, safe medications to alleviate withdrawal symptoms, medications for insomnia, depression, anxiety, and other medicine as needed to improve their health or treat different conditions.

The process to enter detox begins with a phone call to one of our drug detox specialists in Syosset, NY. Our specialists will prepare the admission within 24 hours or less. They will also bill your insurance, explain payment, and make door to door travel arrangements. Once the person arrives at the center, they will be seen by a medical doctor who will prescribe withdrawal medications immediately. Next, they will be given a physical to determine their overall health. A psychiatric evaluation will also be completed by a psychiatrist to determine what symptoms could be treated with mental health counseling, therapy and or medications. The client will also be allowed to rest, and the supportive technicians and detox nursing staff will monitor their progress hourly.

Medical detoxification safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping drug use. However, medical detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long-term drug use. Although detoxification alone is rarely sufficient to help addicts achieve long-term abstinence, for some individuals, it is a strongly indicated precursor to effective drug addiction treatment.

The Syosset NY drug detox centers we cooperate with also provide counseling and prepare an individualized treatment plan for each client. Although detox is the beginning of recovery, it is not recovery. It is imperative that once a person completes a detox program that they are also encouraged to continue their recovery by attending a treatment program — many of the detox centers we send clients to also offer professional drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
