For many substance abuse patients, Detox is an essential first step in the recovery process. It can also be the most difficult. While we don’t offer detoxification services in house, Renaissance Recovery Center utilizes a vast network of addiction treatment professionals to match any patient with a detox program that will work for them. We recognize the challenge that detox can present our patients, and we’re ready to provide referrals for detox programs that minimize discomfort and ensure safety.
We are prepared to connect our patients with detox programs dealing primarily with, though not limited to:
Alcohol dependent patients face potentially hazardous, and sometimes fatal conditions when quitting. Detox is an invaluable asset for any alcohol dependent patient, especially if they have been intoxicated daily for an extended period of time. The high levels of intoxication typically found in alcohol dependent patients can be a huge roadblock to the recovery process. We’re here to remove those roadblocks by whatever means necessary, including connecting our patients with an alcohol detox program that is both well mitigated and clinically successful.
When a patient ceases opiate use and begins treatment, it’s important that the immediate bodily effects are carefully treated and the toxins that opiates have left behind are carefully removed. For most patients, detox is the best way to ensure that this takes place early and safely. While we can’t guarantee complete removal of all discomfort and withdrawal symptoms during the detox process, we can guarantee great options and recommendations for a detox program that will be as comfortable and safe as possible.
Though frequently prescribed by physicians (most commonly as Valium and Ambien), benzos are highly addictive, with a wide variety of dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the prescription and frequency of use, withdrawal symptoms can vary greatly from patient to patient, and require close, individual attention. We will counsel closely with the patient to make sure that their individual physical needs are met in their detox program of choice.
Vivitrol and Suboxone are synthetic opiates often used in detoxification and rehabilitation for opiate addictions. These synthetic opiates satisfy the body’s craving for the drug without administering the high. When a patient is under the care of a physician and has been prescribed Vivitrol or Suboxone as safe way to manage cravings and withdrawals, we monitor their treatment closely to ensure that the patient is using their prescribed medications properly, not overusing or developing a crippling dependency, and provide the mental and emotional counseling necessary to temper Vivitrol/Suboxone treatment with constructive healing.
