Detoxing from drugs and alcohol is typically a painful ordeal one must go through to get sober – but it does not have to be! True Recovery Detox centers make the process of coming off drugs and alcohol as comfortable and painless as possible.
Despite this, some may be tempted to detox “cold turkey” at home. Here we breakdown the benefits of enrolling in True Recovery Detox versus detoxing at home.
Detoxing cold turkey from certain substances, such as alcohol or benzodiazepines, can actually be fatal.
Therefore, it is crucial to have supervision from a trained staff familiar with the symptoms. True Recovery Detox Center provides round the clock supervision of our clients ensuring a safe detox.
Reduction of symptoms
Detoxing from substances produces a whole host of negative symptoms that varies depending on the substance. While this is an unfortunate reality of detoxing, various medicines and holistic methods can help reduce the severity of these symptoms.
Not going at it alone
As mentioned, detoxing typically can be quite uncomfortable. Going through the process with the caring and compassionate staff at True Recovery Detox center removes the fear and uncertainty associated with detoxing alone at home.
Often times, the place in which we most often used drugs or drank was at home. This can make detoxing at home incredibly difficult, as the brain naturally will associate the home with triggers to use early on. Attending True Recovery Detox center removes these triggers by providing a neutral, comfortable location in which to successfully complete the drug and alcohol detox.
An overall greater success rate
Undergoing a detox from drugs or alcohol at a facility with professional supervision will overall greatly increase the odds of successfully achieving sobriety. Making it through the initial withdrawal period is a serious challenge for anyone who attempts to undergo it.
Minimizing the severe symptoms, providing a safe environment to minimize relapse prevention, and being surrounded by sympathetic medical professionals will greatly increase the odds of success.
