Miami Beach Drug Detox can help individuals suffering from addiction to reduce withdrawal symptoms associated with overcoming a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. A substance abuse addiction causes a person to be physically reliant on drugs or alcohol. This reliance means a person experiences negative symptoms when the drug is not present in the body. These symptoms often drive a relapse to drug use due to the extreme discomfort and pain. Miami Beach Drug Detox helps alleviate these symptoms and gives patients tools to ensure they don’t relapse during this difficult stage of recovery.
Medical detox and drug detox programs such as Miami Beach Drug Detox create individualized detox plans for patients based on their individual substance of abuse and the physically addictive properties that the drug is commonly associated with. The experienced staff of Miami Beach Drug Detox effectively help patients detox but more importantly help them create a solid foundation for recovery providing different levels of care in one program to ensure patients receive care for both the physical and mental components of addiction.
Detox programs are available to treat a number of substances that are commonly abused in Miami Beach. Examples include alcohol, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamines. Detox programs are also available to treat prescription medications, such as tranquilizers, sedatives, stimulants (such as Ritalin and Adderall) and opiates, including morphine, hydrocodone and hydromorphone (Dilaudid).
Addiction is a disease that millions of people suffer from all over the world, which affects both the mind and body. When someone suffers from addiction, they’re unable to control or moderate their using due to a mental obsession and physical craving. Many people see it as a lack of will power but this is not the case. An addict can no more control this disease than they could if they were diagnosed with a terminal illness like cancer. Fortunately there are treatment centers that can help with recovery.
One of the many effects of long-term drug and alcohol abuse is that the body will build up a chemical dependence. The body has a natural desire to return to homeostasis, or to feel well. This is extremely beneficial when the body goes through the healing process after a sickness or injury. The body will also do this when someone has been using certain medications, alcohol or drugs on a regular basis for extended periods of time. It will eventually only feel well when these substances are taken, but will begin to experience withdrawal when they are absent from the system.
There are many symptoms of withdrawal that the body will experience, including a natural craving for the substance. The effect is similar to a dehydrated body that craves water in order to feel better. Some of the symptoms can be much more uncomfortable and sometimes painful. These can include nausea, body tremors, fatigue and possibly seizures.
