Landmark Recovery of Denver is dedicated to providing the highest quality of clinical care and evidence-based treatment so that our patients can not only survive but live beyond their opioid addiction. This all starts with opioid detox, but don’t detox alone! The side effects of trying to detox from opioids cause serious physical symptoms and can even be life-threatening. Landmark offers 24/7 monitoring and medically-assisted detox to keep you safe and comfortable through the process of withdrawal.
A person’s opioid withdrawal timeline typically occurs within 24 hours of their last opioid dose. Unfortunately, detoxing from opioids causes serious discomfort, which makes quitting opioids even more difficult if detox is done without medical care to help the symptoms. In many cases, opioid withdrawal requires anti-diarrheal therapy and IV hydration.1
Opioid withdrawal is often described as a moderate to severe illness that is similar to the flu. While symptoms vary among individuals, typically within the first 24 hours they experience anxiety, restlessness, the inability to sleep, spasms, teary eyes, runny nose, abnormal sweating, and aching muscles.
Moving past the 24-hour mark, they may experience more severe symptoms, such as gooseflesh, dilated pupils, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, high blood pressure, and rapid pulse.
Right from the start, Landmark Recovery of Denver offers a medically supervised detoxification program to help you get through the withdrawal process successfully. Our clinical specialists will provide around-the-clock care to keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire process.
Depending on the severity of your addiction, you may be prescribed FDA-approved medications – such as methadone, buprenorphine, or naloxone – to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal and to help reduce cravings.2
Once you are stabilized, you will enter Landmark Recovery’s therapy phase of drug recovery, which can include behavioral therapy, health and wellness education, and medication-assisted treatment. We develop a personalized treatment plan with fully scheduled days to keep you focused on your recovery and nothing else. Our therapeutic approach also aims to treat the underlying causes for your addiction, not just treating you physically for your opioid use disorder.
Finally, our Denver-area facility is purposefully located close to your community to allow your family and supportive relationships to be a part of your recovery. In short: We want to equip our patients to re-enter and navigate the world – without opioids.
