The Importance of Barbiturate Detox

The importance of detox for barbiturate addiction

Because of the pleasurable high that accompanies barbiturate abuse, individuals can find themselves using the drug over and over again.  As they continue to abuse the drug, their desire for it increases. Eventually, their barbiturate abuse begins to dominate their lives and they think of little else. At this point, it is likely that the person has developed a barbiturate use disorder, which is the clinical term for an addiction to barbiturates.

Unfortunately, barbiturate addiction tends to only become worse with time. As a person abuses these drugs, the drugs become less and less effective since the person’s body has habituated to their presence. This reduction in drug potency is known as tolerance, and it is another sign that an individual has become addicted. Tolerance drives individuals even deeper into barbiturate abuse, since they must use ever-increasing amounts of the drug in order to achieve the desired effect.

Eventually, many people who abuse these drugs temporarily stop using them for one reason or another. Sometimes, they begin to see the negative effects that barbiturate abuse is having on their lives and so they try to abstain. Other individuals are simply unable to acquire more barbiturates, and are forced to abstain involuntarily. Whatever the reason, abstinence from barbiturates after long periods of intense use is likely to cause the person’s body to go into a form of shock as it attempts to readjust to functioning without barbiturates present. This readjustment period is known as withdrawal, and it often comes with a series of uncomfortable and even painful symptoms. Perhaps the cruelest reality of withdrawal is that the fastest way to relieve the symptoms is to simply take more barbiturates.

The combination of intense withdrawal symptoms, the compulsion to use barbiturates to relieve those withdrawal symptoms, and the craving for another high can make it feel all but impossible for individuals to overcome barbiturate abuse by themselves.  Many people require professional help in the form of a detoxification, or detox, program.

Benefits of Barbiturate Detox

Benefits of a barbiturate detox program in Northern California

Detox is a place for individuals to safely withdraw from barbiturates and other substances of abuse. Professional treatment in a detox program offers a number of advantages over attempting to stop on one’s own, such as:

  • Drug-free environment. The fact that detox programs are drug-free means that it is impossible to relapse while in a secured detox environment. As a result, the individual does not need to rely on willpower alone to avoid using barbiturates again.
  • Medical monitoring. In a detox program, a team of medical professionals carefully oversees each person’s detox process. They are able to monitor the persons progress through withdrawal and can administer medications as necessary to relieve certain withdrawal symptoms. This is by far the safest way to complete the withdrawal process.
  • Supportive environment. All of the individuals in a detox program are after the same thing: recovery from drug abuse. As a result, guests in a detox program are surrounded by like-minded people who are also seeking recovery. Furthermore, not only do they have the support of peers, but they also have the support of counselors, therapists, and other professional treatment staff who are invested in their recovery.
  • Smooth transition into continuing treatment. Individuals who are the most successful in treatment are often those who can move through the different levels of care without interruption. Many residential treatment centers offer in-house detox programs, and if they do not, these treatment centers work closely with other detox centers to ensure that individuals in their care transition quickly and without interruption between detox and residential treatment.
