Different drugs require different medically assisted detox methods. Know what to expect and get the right treatment plan for your addiction at Landmark Recovery’s Oklahoma City facility.
Drug addiction, also called substance use disorder, is a disease that alters a person’s brain and behavior and leads to the persistent use of drugs despite substantial harm and adverse consequences. 1 Addiction is a serious public health concern that is severely impacting the state of Oklahoma. The current opioid epidemic affecting millions of people across the country has hit Oklahoma especially hard, and the Sooner State currently ranks first in the nation for rate of prescription painkiller abuse. 2 Unfortunately, Oklahoma’s problems with drug addiction are not confined to just opioids.
According to recent results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over a quarter of a million Oklahoma residents (aged 12 and older) meet the criteria for a substance use disorder. 3 A breakdown of drug addiction among Oklahomans includes:
A recent study by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services determined that nearly 181,000 Oklahomans are in need of drug or alcohol addiction treatment. 4 Tragically, about 90% of individuals in need of substance abuse treatment during the last year did not receive any form of treatment. 3
No matter what drug you are addicted to, please know that help is available. Landmark Recovery’s Oklahoma City center is proud to offer treatment programs that can help you overcome your drug addiction and start earning your life back.
Prior to starting any form of treatment, it is imperative that you first discontinue all drug use and undergo detoxification, or detox, the process of ridding all traces of drugs from your system. To ensure that you receive the care and support needed to guide you through the completion of detox, we strongly encourage you to undergo this process under medical supervision at a drug detox center. Depending on your drug of choice and severity of addiction, you can experience physical and emotional symptoms of withdrawal as your body adjusts to the absence of drugs. These symptoms can be severe and may include: 5
Drug withdrawal can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. As a result, many people will quit detox before any real progress has been made, relapsing to drug use in order to ease the effects of withdrawal. Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City features a medically supervised drug detox center that will manage your withdrawal symptoms and help you successfully get through detoxification. Our drug detox program is completely secure so that you will be provided with safety, privacy, and protection from outside temptations while at our facility.
Because everyone goes through withdrawal differently based on their addiction and unique situation, all patients will first undergo a complete assessment and medical evaluation upon program admission. Our center’s medical team will then develop a personalized drug detox treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals.
We provide around-the-clock monitoring and support to keep you as safe and comfortable as possible during the entire detox process. This may include the administration of certain medications to help relieve specific withdrawal symptoms like nausea, mood swings, and anxiety. Our drug detox program is also highly effective in preventing serious medical complications that may arise during withdrawal. The constant supervision provided by our drug detox center’s specially trained clinicians, including internal medicine specialists and psychiatrists, allows us to quickly recognize and address any dangerous consequences of drug withdrawal.
Although drug detox by itself is not a treatment for addiction, you can be smoothly transitioned into one of our science-backed, evidence-based drug treatment programs immediately following the successful completion of detoxification.
The drug detox program at Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City offers medically supervised detoxification in a safe and comfortable environment. Please call us today at 405-896-8426 to learn more about the programs offered at our world class drug detox center.
