The Importance of Stimulant Detox

The importance of detox for stimulant addiction

When a person abuses stimulants over a long period of time, he or she can become addicted to the pleasurable high that comes with use of these substances. This addiction causes him or her to return to these drugs many times, and with repeated use, his or her body becomes accustomed to the presence of the stimulant. As a result, the person needs to ingest more and more of his or her stimulant of choice in order to experience the pleasurable effect of the drug. This loss of sensitivity to the drug is known as tolerance.

As a person becomes tolerant to his or her stimulant of choice, he or she uses increasing amounts of the drug in order to achieve a high. Over time, his or her body comes to depend on the presence of the stimulant in order to function effectively. Should this person then attempt to stop using the stimulant, he or she will experience withdrawal. The withdrawal process is the body’s way of readjusting itself to functioning without the presence of the drug that the person had been using, and it is an extremely uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous process. Withdrawal typically lasts from a few days to two weeks and, unfortunately, the fastest way for a person to relieve withdrawal symptoms is to take more of the drug that he or she has been abusing. Naturally, the combination of uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and a compulsion to continue using can make it feel all but impossible for an individual to overcome stimulant abuse on his or her own.

Many individuals require professional treatment in order to withdraw safely and successfully from the stimulant(s) that they have been abusing. A setting in which a person can withdraw safely under the supervision of medical personnel is known as a detox, or detoxification, program.

Benefits of Stimulant Detox

Benefits of our stimulant detox program in Northern California

A detox program offers a number of benefits that a person cannot receive outside of professional treatment. People who participate in detox have a much better chance of successfully withdrawing from stimulants. Some of the benefits that detox provides include:

  • Medical monitoring. Individuals in detox programs are often carefully monitored by a team of medical professionals. This medical monitoring ensures that individuals in a detox program are able to withdraw safely and with minimal discomfort since the medical team is able to prescribe medications to relieve withdrawal symptoms.
  • Continuity of care. The people who are the most successful in stimulant abuse treatment programs are often those who are able to transition smoothly between different levels of care. Because detox programs are often included in a residential treatment program, individuals who receive detox are able to transition directly into care after detox is complete.
  • Reduced temptation to relapse. Because detox is a drug-free environment, individuals are unable to act on any temptation they may feel to relapse.  As a result, they are able to successfully withdraw from stimulants without worrying about using again in a moment of weakness.
  • Developing recovery skills. Although detox helps a person gain his or her first few days of sobriety, successful recovery requires long-term abstinence from substances of abuse. Individuals who withdraw in the context of a detox program are given the opportunity to build skills that will enable them to achieve long-term recovery.

If a person does not seek professional help for a stimulant abuse problem, the problem is likely to only become worse. Without help, individuals will likely struggle to achieve sobriety and can have extreme difficulty with successfully navigating the withdrawal process. In addition, individuals who abuse stimulants are likely to face problems in virtually every domain of their lives, from work to relationships to family, and even with regards to their physical health. In addition, as with any drug of abuse, continued use of stimulants places a person at risk of a dangerous or fatal overdose.

However, with help, recovery is possible. By seeking out the help of a highly experienced treatment team and comprehensive detox care, a person can give him or herself the best possible chance of a life free from stimulant abuse. If you or someone you care about might benefit from the life-changing treatment we provide at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, do not hesitate to give us a call. We work diligently to ensure that individuals in our care receive the best possible treatment before transitioning into our residential program.
