What is Medical Detox or Detoxing?

As a person becomes tolerant of a substance, they will also become dependent on the substance. Over time, if they stop using, they can experience withdrawal symptoms that often are the opposite of the drug’s intended effects.

Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, with shaking, headaches, or even throwing up, as the body tries to get back to normal without the substance. At our Bradford detox program, we have skilled medical and clinical staff who keep a close eye on patients 24/7.

Detoxification is a process that helps the body get rid of harmful substances, like alcohol or drugs. It’s an essential step to help the body recover from depending on these substances. Doing this helps to stabilize the body before moving on to the next parts of the treatment plan.

What happens in a Medical Detox process?

During your time in our detox unit, our team will regularly check your physical health by monitoring important signs such as blood pressure, body temperature, and heart rate. We will also pay attention to how you’re feeling mentally and emotionally. If necessary, our medical experts may prescribe medications to help with any withdrawal symptoms you may experience.

Most importantly, you’ll have ample time to rest, recharge, and prepare your body and mind before you move on to the residential program with your fellow participants. The duration of the detox process can vary from 24 hours to a few days, depending on your specific needs and circumstances. Our primary goal is to stabilize your body and ensure that you’re in good health before starting your treatment program.
