Alcoholic thinking and the abuse that ensues isn’t just something that occurs overnight. Although there is a rapid onset for most, it takes time for the obsession to make everything in life powerless and unmanageable. Unfortunately by the time it is recognizable, the mind and body have already begun their dependency to the substances being consumed. Addiction will train the addict to honestly believe everything is okay when it’s not. In this nature, addiction is a progressive disease that cultivates in stealth. Medical detoxification is the starting point for the road to recovery. All addicts/alcoholics that enter recovery have to develop their sobriety one step at a time, but this usually requires ridding the body of its irrational toxins first.
Why the Need for Medical Detoxification?
The human body is made to adapt to its surroundings physically and mentally through struggle. When any addict/alcoholic begins a daily dosage of substances to the unsuspecting mind and body, the vessel then instinctively begins to expect said substance in its bloodstream. Upon getting clean, the mind and body are not ready to give up the psychological dependence and once again caught off guard in a state similar to shock. This psychosomatic reliance thus causes a response of the body going into uncomfortable withdrawals from the routine change.
Withdrawal and the warning signs that follow are one of the largest reasons why so many addicts and alcoholics avoid recovery for the longest time. The disparaging symptoms are what most think of initially when playing with the idea of getting clean from drug addiction and/or alcoholism. However, withdrawal symptoms will always vary depending on the individual’s composition amongst other aspects. Certain factors in the equation like the age of the user, particular substances being used, length of time and amounts used all affect the type of detox required. Despite the personalized detoxification process, most individuals will experience similar discomfort in their symptoms such as:
Shaking and Delirium Tremors
Anxiety and Depression
Cold Sweats and Hot Flashes
Loss of Appetite
Loss of Bowel Movements
Not all will need detoxification upon getting clean, but for those with severe using problems, medical intervention is usually recommended. Detox for individuals with deeper addictions can create dangerous withdrawal symptoms resulting in bodily harm and in some extreme cases death.
