No matter what substance you use, be it drugs or alcohol, detox from long-term addiction can be a hard road. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas provides safe, medically sound detox treatment that will manage your withdrawal and start you on the road to recovery.
Many people living in Nevada have been impacted by the negative consequences of substance abuse and addiction. According to autopsy and toxicology reports, 1,682 deaths related to alcohol and drugs were recorded in 2018, including 372 opioid overdose deaths and more than 1,000 alcohol-related deaths. 1 In the same year, there were also 64,502 emergency department visits and 52,632 inpatient admissions to Nevada hospitals that were related to drugs and alcohol.
Recent findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicate that approximately 1 in 2 Nevada residents currently drinks alcohol, 1 in 4 recently engaged in binge drinking, 1 in 7 use marijuana, 1 in 22 misuse prescription opioids, 1 in 44 use cocaine, 1 in 76 use methamphetamines, and 1 in 294 use heroin. 2 The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration also estimates that there are approximately 218,000 Nevada residents currently struggling with some form of substance addiction. 2 This includes 139,00 Nevada residents suffering from alcoholism, 101,000 with an addiction to an illegal drug, and 18,000 prescription opioid addicts.
Are you struggling to free yourself from drug or alcohol addiction? Are you ready to get help from addiction treatment? The good news is that effective help is available. However, before you can begin any form of structured addiction treatment, you must first prepare your body and mind for rehabilitation. This is accomplished through detox, a critical process that involves clearing all traces of drugs, alcohol, and accumulated toxins from your system, at one of your local Las Vegas rehab centers.
For many individuals, 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. Symptoms of withdrawal may include: 3
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. 3 For example, a small number of individuals detoxing from alcohol may experience delirium tremens, 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. 4 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.
