What is Drug Detox Like?

People will tell you that detox is one of the worst experiences that you can imagine. While it is not fun, Granite Recovery Centers makes the process manageable. The detoxing stage is also one of your most vulnerable points to relapsing, so if you choose to do nothing else, do get to a detox center where one can monitor you from using substances again.

When you check into detox at Green Mountain Treatment Center, you may or may not be under the influence. Your belongings are then checked for substances, weapons, and communication devices. Once removing anything that can harm from your possession you are admitted. The drug detox process can last from a few days to around a week. The length depends on the substances you used and how much.

Detox centers will make you as comfortable as possible while you experience the following symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Aches and pains
  • Chills

You can also experience:

  • Sweating
  • Inability to Concentrate
  • Light Headedness
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures (depending on the substance)
  • Cravings

During this time at our drug and alcohol detox center in New Hampshire, you will participate in group activities. You will also need to keep yourself clean and do your best to stay nourished. If you have an additional medical problem, you may go to a hospital to ensure that you receive the proper care. Most people can make it through in a semi-clinical setting.

What to Expect at Granite Recovery Drug and Alcohol Detox Center

The center is a licensed medical facility set up for sub-acute medical detox. People that come into the center receiving monitoring around the clock for at least 24 hours. Their condition is assessed, and they are either moved on to the rehab stage or kept in the detox to continue detoxing. Here are the guidelines for a sub-acute medical detox facility (from original pg):

Each client receives a certain level of acute or sub-acute medical detoxification based on the factors listed above. The “adult levels of care model” from The American Society of Addiction (ASAM), specifies detox care need by client characteristics.

According to this model, clients can range from requiring Level 4 acute care (full hospital resources) to Level 0.5 sub-acute care (no withdrawal risk). Granite Recovery Centers’ medical detoxification program at Green Mountain Treatment Center is certified at Level 3.7 sub-acute, which means that the facility can care for patients that have a high to manageable withdrawal risk and have the following need characteristics:

  • Requires 24-hour medical monitoring
  • Requires a 24-hour structured setting
  • Low interest in treatment, needs motivational strategies
  • Have great difficulty controlling substance use

As you can see from the above statement, not all patients will need to enter the sub-acute detox area. If you are not required to attend, consider that a gift. You will not have to go through the pain and agony of the detoxification process that others are experiencing.

During sub-acute detox, we may provide evidence-based medication to assist with the most severe withdrawal symptoms. This ensures that every individual that needs help remains within the walls long enough to become sober and focused on recovery.

Drug addiction is tricky, and Granite Recovery will take good care of you. We have helped so many people find their way out of substance abuse and into the light of new and wonderful lives.
