Why Does Prescription Medication Detox Work?

Addiction can be difficult to break free from and often requires medical assistance. The first step in the recovery process is detox. Detox refers to the process of releasing toxins from the body, meaning the drug or drugs that were taken. Every detox process is different and depends on many varying factors, such as what drug was taken, for how long, and dosage.

The common theme in prescription medication detox is that the person’s body will be affected both physically and mentally. Withdrawal symptoms from most prescription medication are so severe, it is not only dangerous to detox without medical assistance, but it often fails. It is important to treat this detox process medically to ensure a safe and successful recovery.

How It Works

Once you have decided to enroll in prescription medication detox, an assessment or evaluation will be conducted. This is how your team of medical professionals will determine what method of detox is best for you. Your team will evaluate symptoms, severity of the addiction, and medical history.

After the initial evaluation comes the detoxification process itself. This starts the moment the person addicted stops using the drug or drugs. In some cases, additional drugs may be used to help ease the withdrawal symptoms some may experience. These symptoms may include pain, insomnia, anxiety or cravings. In some cases, a tapering off method is best. This is when the drug is slowly reduced until it is no longer in your system and you are no longer dependent. The method best used is one that works for you. It varies from case to case and will be best answered by your team of medical professionals.
