Is Medically Monitored Detox Necessary?
Because symptoms associated with synthetic drug withdrawal are so unpredictable, medically monitored detox is always a necessary first step on the road to recovery. Most men and women who have been engaging in synthetic drug abuse require psychiatric intervention. Upon admission to our individualized detox program each client undergoes an in-depth physical, psychiatric and psychosocial assessment. This assessment helps us develop a personalized treatment plan – in the case of synthetic drug abuse, this plan typically includes medication assisted treatment, intensive therapeutic intervention, psychiatric care and any other detox services that are deemed necessary.
Treatment options vary on a case-by-case basis, and there are no medications that are used specifically for the alleviation of synthetic drug withdrawal symptoms. At CuraSouth we often utilize antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications to help reduce the more severe psychological symptoms, in combination with over-the-counter pain relievers and non-narcotic sleep aids. We also offer a range of therapeutic and recovery-related services including case management, 12-step program involvement, individual, group and family therapy, relapse prevention training and aftercare planning.
