At Santé Center For Healing, our medication-assisted detox program is a great way to take the first step toward a sober, happy, healthy life.

Symptoms of Detox

It can be scary to go through detox alone. It can also be dangerous, especially if you’re detoxing from benzodiazepines or alcohol. The detox process can include several uncomfortable symptoms, including gastrointestinal upset (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting), flu-like symptoms, headache, chills, fever, and more. While detox can be hard, the good news is that it passes quickly.

Many people who attempt to go through detox on their own end up giving in to their cravings. As detox progresses, cravings hit a high point before finally receding. A medication-assisted detox program can help you make it through the hardest parts of detox so that you’re able to begin your recovery.

What Is Medication-Assisted Detox?

When you choose to go through medication-assisted detox, you’re maximizing your chances of recovery from addiction. When you begin the detox process at Santé Center For Healing, we’ll evaluate your physical and emotional condition, and our physician and medical staff will use medication to make your detox process more comfortable. We’ll monitor your condition and symptoms, keeping you safe. We’ll be there for you every step of the way as the drugs and alcohol leave your system, allowing you to begin your new, sober life.

The drugs used help you detox will depend on your body chemistry and the substance(s) you’ve been using. Some drugs help your body gently ease off of substances, while others strictly keep you comfortable. Our medical staff will find the perfect combination of medications to make your medication-assisted detox program experience as comfortable as possible.
