Drug & Alcohol Detox

Drug and Alcohol Detox at The Raleigh House

The thought of detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be terrifying. Many who try to break free from addiction on their own either relapse to avoid the withdrawal symptoms or put their lives at risk. With the right medical treatment and supervision, it’s possible to safely make it through detox and get on the right track to recovery.

Through our detox program at The Raleigh House, we offer support and guidance throughout the entire detox process to help you overcome withdrawal and let your body heal.

What is Drug and Alcohol Detox?

Detox is the process of giving your body time to rid itself of drugs or alcohol. It is the first step in an addiction treatment program where you’re monitored and supported as your body starts to heal from addiction and work through the withdrawal symptoms.

When done at a credible addiction treatment facility, licensed medical staff are able to monitor your progress and ease withdrawal symptoms with medication. This is a safer and more effective approach than trying to detox alone at home.

Why The Raleigh House for Drug and Alcohol Detox?

When searching for the right rehab facility, you want one that provides an experienced and licensed clinical staff with credentials to provide detox treatment.

Based on the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, The Raleigh House is licensed as an ASAM Level 3.2 D addiction treatment center. This means we are able to provide clinically managed residential withdrawal to clients who are at a moderate risk of withdrawal and need 24-hour support.

What to Expect with Withdrawal

Withdrawal can range from uncomfortable to intense and life-threatening, depending on the type of substance you’re addicted to, the length of your addiction and if you’re dealing with any co-occurring disorders.

The following withdrawal symptoms are associated with these different types of drugs:

  • Alcohol: Anxiety, nausea and vomiting, sweating, insomnia, hallucinations, tremors, seizures.
  • Painkillers and Heroin: Pain in muscles, bones, and joints, gastrointestinal discomfort. 
  • Meth, Cocaine and other Stimulants: Intense feelings of depression and suicidal behaviors. 

Detox Treatment at The Raleigh House

Our approach to your detox treatment will vary depending on the substance you’re addicted to:

  • Alcohol: Because of alcohol’s serious and life-threatening withdrawal symptoms, immediate medical attention is needed. Depending on the level of care required, we will transfer you to and from medical and social detox centers we partner with.
  • Painkillers and Heroin: Buprenorphine and methadone are Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved drugs used to help ease the withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid addiction. Our clinical staff will oversee your detox treatment and make sure you’re as safe and comfortable as possible.
  • Cocaine: Withdrawal from cocaine can include symptoms like depression, anxiety, paranoia, weight loss and insomnia. Our clinical staff will provide psychiatric, medical and nursing care as you work through detox.

For addictions to meth, ecstasy, stimulants and other drugs, our licensed clinical professionals will work with you to evaluate your substance abuse and determine the best course of detox treatment.
