The first part of the recovery journey starts with a mind and body detox from the substance. Some substances like Alcohol and Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Klonapin) require medical monitoring and the use of prescribed medications to manage withdrawal symptoms and side effects.
Here is what you can expect. A Detox from Alcohol or Benzodiazepines will typically last for 5 days, but it could be extended based on the severity of your use, withdrawal symptoms and any medical complications.
You will be evaluated by the Nurse Practitioner at admission, halfway through your Detox and right before your Detox has ended to make sure no other comfort medications are needed. You will meet with a Nurse 1 to 2 times a day to assess your withdrawal symptoms and make sure you are comfortable.
You will be given two kinds of medications. The Detox medications are for safety purposes. They decrease anxiety and prevent seizures while Alcohol or Benzodiazepines leave your body. The other type of medications are comfort medications. They help manage physical pain, emotional pain, sleep and a few other things.
You will also be assigned a counselor and will be meeting with them regularly.
