The Necessity of Detox for Substance Abuse Recovery

People suffering from substance abuse have a difficult road to travel in life. It is possible to change this path but they have to want it to happen and too few of them just do not have the desire or the willpower to make that choice to recover. Instead, they prefer to continue pill popping, snorting, shooting up, or downing shots. That is what keeps them going day to day, or so they believe. What they are actually doing is slowly killing themselves with chemicals or liquor. They may not realize this until it is too late or they may realize it and choose to continue down their chosen path.

Many addicts have become that way due to the present day stresses of high powered jobs and a poor economy. They worry and they need something to “take the edge off.” Eventually, taking too much of whatever they have been using to relax will become not a choice but a necessity for them. These addicts are intelligent enough to know that they have a problem and many of them decide to seek the help they need. Others just keep spiraling down because they already know how difficult a recovery program is going to be.

They are not totally wrong in their assumptions. Phase one of recovery is the detoxification of the body. This is the part that cleanses the system of all of the abusive substances that have been going into it for however long. While this is a completely necessary part of the process, it is also the most unpleasant part for most addicts. This is the part that can make an addict give up before the detox is complete. A detoxification produces withdrawal symptoms that range from mildly uncomfortable to being so severe that they are fatal. It is for this reason that any addict wishing to recover should be in a medical facility attended to by professionals that are trained specifically to treat substance abuse and detox withdrawal.

The next phase of the treatment is the psychological, mental and emotional probing that should lead to the ferreting out of the underlying issues that caused the addictions. It is important to know why in order to keep it from happening again. The detoxification and counseling are going to work together in order to ease addicts into the position of recovering and giving them the best chance possible to staying clean and sober for the rest of their lives. They can be assured of leading successful and productive lives.


Treating Substance Abuse

One of the most important things for you to understand going into this process is that there is no single right way to overcome a drug addiction or a substance abuse problem. There is no single one size fits all solution for everyone to take advantage of when it comes to substance abuse recovery. Instead, you absolutely must be willing to shop around and consider the different options and opportunities that are available to you so that you can find the solution that fits you, your situation and your specific needs. This is going to be the best way to make sure that you not only overcome your substance abuse problem, but that you prevent it from reoccurring.

Consider that there are different lengths of stay when it comes to substance abuse treatment programs in Colorado. There are both short term and long term programs for you to choose from depending on the Colorado drug treatment centers that you consider. Short term programs are ideal if you have not been abusing the substance for very long. If you have been struggling with an addiction for a long time, however, then you should consider a longer term program.

Consider that Colorado treatment centers offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs and the two are very different. Inpatient treatment programs are residential or live in programs where you stay on the premises until you have overcome your substance abuse problem. Outpatient programs on the other hand are come-and-go types of programs meaning that you can continue to work, go to school and meet other obligations when you are not meeting for counseling or therapy.

Keep in mind that Colorado treatment centers offer different types of therapy and counseling to help you build a healthy and well lifestyle after the substance is removed from your system. What works for some people is not necessarily going to work for you and vice versa.

Bear in mind that Colorado treatment centers often differ in the way that they go through the detox process. Not every detox process has been created equally. Not only is the center going to provide you with a unique detox experience, but the type of substance that you are abusing is also going to play a role in the detox process and exactly what you experience during this time.
