Chronic usage of drugs and alcohol will inevitably lead to some degree of tolerance. The body demands a higher dosage of the drug of choice in order to achieve the same level of euphoria. Conversely, if you abruptly stop using alcohol or drugs (known as detoxification) your body will react adversely because it craves the need to get high. These unpleasant symptoms of detoxification is known as withdrawal.
Managing Alcohol & Drug Withdrawal
Depending on the type of substance and quantities normally used, alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms may range from mild to severe and on occasion they are potentially life-threatening. As drug and alcohol detox is complex and presents an array of unpredictable withdrawal symptoms, most clients seeking addiction treatment will receive medical detoxification at a facility that provides 24/7 medical supervision.
Our doctors and nurses at Florida Center for Recovery are experienced in providing medical detox offering clients comfortable and compassionate care by utilizing the necessary medications, as indicated. Also, in order to induce relaxation and meditation we offer our clients supportive therapies such as Medical Massage and Biofeedback Therapy, both lauded by the alternative medicine community in helping reduce anxiety and control pain.
