Scottsdale Detox Center

Are you suffering from drug or alcohol dependency in the Scottsdale, Arizona area? Have you been unsuccessful in trying to stop using and take control of your life? If so, it may be time to consider an inpatient detox center.

At Desert Cove Recovery, we provide referrals to professional detox services when they are necessary. Under the care of experienced professionals, patients can start their journey to recovery in a safe and comfortable environment.

What is Detox?

Detoxification, often referred to simply as ‘detox,’ refers to the process of ridding the body of the harmful toxins that have built up as a result of drug and/or alcohol use. For many people, especially those who have been addicted to and abusing drugs and alcohol for a long time, detox is the first part of the treatment process.

The detox process usually involves three key stages:

  1. Evaluation – A patient is evaluated to determine if detox is necessary and to what degree.
  2. Stabilization – A patient is monitored and provided with the necessary assistance during detox.
  3. Transition into treatment – Once detox is completed, a patient is transitioned into an appropriate treatment program.

It is important to remember that detox is not considered a treatment for alcohol or drug addiction and abuse but rather is the first part of the treatment process. For a patient to successfully overcome addiction, he or she must learn the necessary skills to beat addiction. These skills are learned through an ongoing treatment program.

Why is Detox Important?

When a substance is used for a long time, the body becomes physically dependent on it. Detox is important because it rids the body of the buildup of toxins that a substance leaves behind so that the individual can start to focus on treatment.

Going through detox alone can be dangerous, and many patients cannot successfully complete the detox process on their own. During this phase of the recovery process, withdrawal symptoms set in. These symptoms vary from person to person and are dependent on the type of drug that was being used and the level of the addiction.

While everyone’s experience with detox will be different, some of the most common symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

In the most extreme cases, the symptoms of withdrawal can be deadly.

Many people often give in and start using the substance they are trying to rid their bodies of to ease withdrawal symptoms. Naturally, this derails recovery and leads patients to continue using drugs or alcohol. Undergoing detox under the care of professionals allows patients to go through the process safely. It also speeds up the recovery process and increases the chances of success.

The Benefits of Scottsdale Detox

Inpatient detox led by medical professionals has many benefits, including:

  • Constant supervision from a professional medical staff that is trained in managing withdrawal symptoms.
  • A safe and comfortable environment to go through the detox process makes it easier to handle the side effects of withdrawal.
  • Reduced stress, which not only helps to reduce triggers that may tempt a patient to use drugs or alcohol but also allows patients to focus solely on the detox process and recovery
  • No access to drugs or alcohol.
  • Increased success rate, as patients can receive the required care as they detox and cannot attain drugs or alcohol.

Who is Scottsdale Detox Recommended For?

Many people battling with a drug or alcohol addiction can benefit from inpatient detox; however, it is particularly beneficial for those who have a serious addiction. Additionally, those who use specific types of substances will require medically supervised inpatient detox, as the withdrawal symptoms from these substances can have extremely dangerous side effects. These substances include:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Barbiturates
  • Opiates
  • Stimulants

The Dangers of Detoxing Alone

Many people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol try to quit ‘cold turkey’ or on their own without medical supervision and intervention. This can be extremely risky and lead to:

  • Extreme and unnecessary discomfort
  • Greater risk of relapse
  • Severe and possibly deadly health complications
