Today, people from all walks of life are looking for safe and effective ways to overcome alcohol and drug addiction. While many people may attempt to detox at home, quitting cold turkey can be dangerous. Luckily, medical detox centers at addiction treatment programs like Serenity Grove Recovery provide safe, effective, medically supervised detox for successful recovery.
Serenity Grove Recovery’s family-owned detox programs feature inpatient and outpatient medical detox in beautiful Athens, GA. Learn more about our addiction treatment programs by calling 844.904.3485 to speak with our staff.
What Is Medical Detox?
Detox is the first stage of addiction recovery. When an addictive substance leaves the body, the brain triggers a series of physical, emotional, and psychological responses. These responses can include:
- Flu-like symptoms
- Drug cravings
- Panic attacks
- Loss of appetite
- Suicidal ideation
These and other symptoms can be overwhelming. Medical detox programs can help. By providing individualized care, doctors and nurses monitor fluid levels, vitals, and nutrition during detox. This can reduce the risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Medical supervision can also monitor for underlying health conditions and prevent complications during withdrawal. Proper hydration and nutrient levels can lessen physical detox symptoms and ease emotional and psychological stress.
Medically Assisted Detox for Addiction Treatment
Medically assisted detox pairs prescription medications and supplements with 24/7 care to wean a client off drugs or alcohol.
Suboxone for Opiate Detox
At Serenity Grove, we use Suboxone for opiate and opioid detox. Opiate use can be especially difficult to overcome because opiates change a person’s brain. Suboxone is administered by a nurse once a day to help reduce opiate cravings. Over time, a client’s dose is reduced for gradual recovery.
NAD+ for Cellular Repair
NAD+, also known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is naturally produced by the human body. Considered a miracle enzyme, NAD+ can reduce cellular stress, lessen addiction triggers, and reduce cravings. Natural levels of NAD+ decrease as we age. Depending on a client’s needs and NAD+ tolerances, doses are given daily over several days to replenish NAD+ levels throughout the body. Our IV NAD+ therapy can help with cellular repair, cravings, and overall recovery.
Psychotherapy and Dual Diagnosis for Mental Health
Today, 50% of people living with addiction also live with co-occurring disorders. Dual diagnosis treats mental health disorders alongside addiction treatment for holistic wellbeing. At Serenity Grove Recovery, we provide a wide range of psychotherapy and alternative therapies to assist dual diagnosis and addiction recovery. Mental health is a key component to addiction treatment and recovery. With a focus on trauma therapy, we help clients uncover and heal addiction triggers.
Combining medically assisted detox and mental health services is an increasingly common approach to addiction recovery. Doctors and therapists now understand that addiction is strongly tied to mental health, brain chemistry, past trauma, and a person’s stress levels. By working with the same doctors and therapists throughout treatment, clients at Serenity Grove experience continuity and stability they can trust.
