Drug Detox New York
Drug Detox New York
When a person is ready to begin getting help for their addictions, the first step is to be admitted into a treatment center that offers a drug detox with medical supervision. Many people who attempt to detox at home off a drug or off alcohol fail and eventually relapse soon after the withdrawal symptoms become too much. The New York drug detox centers that we recommend are safe and will prescribe substitute drugs that are administered by a medical staff trained in addiction recovery.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIDA, “Detoxification is the process of allowing the body to rid itself of a drug while managing the symptoms of withdrawal. Detox alone is not treatment but is often the first step in a drug treatment program. Treatment with behavioral therapy and/or a medication (if available) should follow detox…Withdrawal describes the various symptoms that occur after a person abruptly reduces or stops long-term use of a drug and or alcohol…In many cases, withdrawal can easily be treated with medications to ease the symptoms, but treating withdrawal is not the same as treating addiction” (NIDA).
The medications that are prescribed to lessen withdrawal symptoms depend on what drug was being abused and for how long. Long-term heroin addicts are prescribed Clonidine, Methadone, Buprenorphine or Naltrexone. Other medications that assist in easing withdrawal symptoms include medications to promote sleep, lessen nausea, anxiety, and agitation.

Alcohol detox, like heroin detox, also utilizes safe substitute medications to ease withdrawal symptoms from alcohol. These medications include Ativan, Klonopin, anti-depressants, medications to reduce blood pressure and restlessness. Cocaine and methamphetamine also require medical supervision to detox from. The medication prescribed for these drugs also reduce anxiety, depression, promote sleep and lessen hallucinations and agitation.
