Our Treatment Is Changing Lives
Inpatient Detox

What is Inpatient Detox?

Inpatient detox is a necessary first step on every individual program of addiction recovery. During inpatient detox clients undergo a safe and pain-free drug or alcohol withdrawal under the close supervision of a team of medical professionals. At CuraSouth we have developed a detox program that focuses on more than client comfort and physical stabilization. We believe that truly effective detox should also pave the road for continued success in sobriety. For this reason, we offer a range of addiction services geared towards comprehensive healing. No matter how severe and devastating a substance abuse disorder has become, CuraSouth is available to help.

Attempting to detox at home without medical supervision can be extremely dangerous for a variety of reasons, including:

  • The physical and psychological discomfort that goes hand-in-hand with drug and alcohol withdrawal often leads individuals back to substance use before the detox process has been completed.
  • Returning to substance use before the detox process has completed can easily lead to overdose – people might take more than their weakened bodies can handle.
  • Long-term substance abuse can result in serious – sometimes life-threatening – health-related complications, including heart palpitations, seizures and coma.
  • The psychological symptoms associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal can be severe, and often require pharmacological intervention in order to prevent complications like panic attacks and suicidal ideation.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, medical detoxification is only the first stage of the treatment process, and in order to be truly effective it must be immediately followed by the next appropriate level of clinical care. At CuraSouth we offer case management and rehab placement services in order to ensure that every one of our clients is equipped with a comprehensive and personalized aftercare plan.

Is Medical Detox Always Necessary?

Regardless of how severe a substance abuse disorder has become, medically monitored detox is always necessary. People who attempt to quit “cold turkey” or who attempt to detox at home have extremely low success rates. In addition to failing to stay sober, they run the risk of experiencing severe physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms without access to professional help. Withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening when they are not adequately treated.

Our Detox Programs

The symptoms associated with withdrawal vary significantly based on what substance was being abused, the severity and duration of abuse and the presence of any underlying mental or physical health conditions.

At CuraSouth we offer the following detox programs (among many others):

  • Alcohol Detox – Alcohol detox can be severe, and might include symptoms like nausea and vomiting, insomnia, irritability, fatigue, body tremors, delirium tremens and seizures. At CuraSouth we often utilize benzodiazepines to alleviate the more severe symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. Alcohol detox generally lasts for around two full weeks.
  • Opioid Detox – We treat symptoms associated with heroin and prescription opioid withdrawal, which often resemble symptoms associated with a very severe flu. Symptoms usually include profuse sweating, shaking, headaches, stomach cramping, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, irritability, agitation and anxiety. We use evidence-based treatment options like Suboxone to treat these symptoms.
  • Prescription Drug Detox – At CuraSouth we specialize in the treatment of prescription opioid withdrawal, prescription stimulant withdrawal and withdrawal related to CNS (central nervous system) depressants.
  • Cocaine Detox – Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal might include restlessness, agitation, increased appetite, depressed mood, insomnia, fatigue and general feelings of physical discomfort. When it comes to treating stimulant withdrawal we often combine over-the-counter pain relievers with non-addictive sleep aids.
  • Methamphetamine Detox – When it comes to methamphetamine withdrawal, the psychological symptoms are often far more severe than the physical symptoms. Clients meet one-on-one with an on-staff psychiatrist, who might prescribe MAT.
  • Benzodiazepine Detox – Like alcohol withdrawal, benzodiazepine withdrawal can be life-threatening when not overseen and treated 24/7. Some symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal include muscle aches and pains, insomnia, muscle spasms, nausea, feelings of detachment from reality, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and grand mal seizures. We often utilize tapering and MAT to treat benzodiazepine withdrawal.

The Addiction Treatment Options We Provide

At CuraSouth we utilize a range of evidence-based approaches to treatment, including Medication Assisted Treatment, tapering, intensive therapeutic intervention, holistically-based modalities and an emphasis on client comfort. Our on-staff physicians often prescribe medications based on the findings of addiction assessments, which vary on a client-to-client basis and might include:

  • Over-the-counter pain relievers, like acetaminophen and ibuprofen – These medications can be extremely beneficial when it comes to treating general feelings of physical discomfort.
  • Anti-nausea medications – Nausea and vomiting often go hand-in-hand with drug and alcohol withdrawal – we utilize certain medications to alleviate these symptoms.
  • Suboxone – This medication is a combination of buprenorphine and nalaxone. This medication alleviates drug cravings and helps to lessen the more severe physical symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
  • Anticonvulsants – While we generally use benzodiazepines for the treatment of severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms, anticonvulsants might be necessary if a client has a personal history of experiencing seizures.
  • Benzodiazepines – This type of medication can be beneficial to treat acute alcohol withdrawal – though it is typically only utilized in the case of severe symptoms.
  • Antipsychotic medications – Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications can be beneficial when it comes to treating severe psychological withdrawal symptoms.

We also offer intensive therapy, relapse prevention training, aftercare planning and a thorough introduction to the 12-step model of addiction recovery.

Our Simple Admissions Process

Sadly, the majority of men and women who would benefit immensely from medical detox fail to seek the professional help they so desperately need. At CuraSouth we remain dedicated to making our services as accessible as possible. For this reason we have developed an admissions process that is simple and uncomplicated. The moment you or your loved one gives us a call we begin by conducting a brief pre-assessment over the phone, which can typically be completed within a matter of minutes. We ask a series of straightforward questions including, “Which chemical substances have you been using on a regular basis?” “Is there any history of substance abuse in your immediate family?” “Have you ever been diagnosed with a mental illness or a chronic health condition?” The answers to these questions help our clinical and medical team determine which course of action is going to be the most beneficial for each individual case. Once the pre-assessment is complete we explore potential coverage options and run a free, no obligation health insurance benefit check whenever necessary. At CuraSouth we work closely with most major regional and national providers in order to make our inpatient detox program as accessible as possible. Finally we set a date and a time for intake, and help arrange travel plans to our facility if needed. If you or someone you love has been suffering at the hands of a substance abuse disorder of any severity, CuraSouth is available to help. There is hope. Contact us today for more information.
