For Las Vegas residents, detox represents the most difficult stage of the recovery journey. This is because as addictive substances are being flushed out of the body, the brain typically goes into withdrawal as it adjusts to normal functioning without the presence of drugs or alcohol. Depending on the substance of abuse and length and severity of addiction, you can experience a range of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking or using drugs.
Landmark Recovery offers the only approved medical detox facility outside of a clinical setting. We offer an affordable and safe way to detox from drugs and alcohol.
Symptoms of withdrawal may include:
Unfortunately, the pain and discomfort of withdrawal drive many individuals to immediate relapse, quickly derailing any attempt of long-term recovery. Withdrawal from certain substances, such as opioids and alcohol, can also cause severe physical symptoms, some of which can become life-threatening if not properly addressed with substance abuse addiction treatment. For example, a small number of individuals detoxing from alcohol may experience delirium tremens (or DTs), a dangerous condition characterized by hallucinations, seizures, high fever, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, confusion, extreme agitation, and excessive sweating.
According to a recent report published in The New England Journal of Medicine, 1 in 25 individuals with delirium tremens will die from the effects of this condition if they are not promptly treated at an addiction treatment center. Due to the high risk of relapse and other potential dangers associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal, it is highly recommended that individuals suffering from addiction abstain from going “cold turkey” at home alone and instead detox under medical supervision at a professional detox center.
Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas develops personalized detox treatment plans for all clients, ensuring that you receive care that is tailored to your specific addiction needs and recovery goals. Our team of clinical specialists will carefully manage the physical and emotional symptoms of your withdrawal, keeping you safe and comfortable throughout the entire drug and alcohol detox process. Physicians and psychiatrists can prescribe medications that can help reduce intense cravings and alleviate specific negative symptoms of withdrawal. Your dedicated treatment center medical team will also provide around-the-clock monitoring, watching for any signs of medical complications that can arise during withdrawal from alcohol and drugs.
Because drug detox by itself is not a treatment for addiction, you will be smoothly transitioned into substance abuse treatment once you are deemed medically stabilized.
