Recovery Is Here

What Can Detox Offer?

At Arcadia Trails, we know the process of detoxing is challenging. We understand how difficult the decision to check yourself into rehab is, and we know what it’s like to be afraid of recovery and sobriety. We also know how important it is to take that first step.

Detoxification, or detox, generally refers to the process of removing toxins from the body. For someone seeking treatment for a substance use disorder, detox specifically refers to the period of time that the body is allowed to process or metabolize any drugs and alcohol in the system and, in doing so, clearing their toxic influence.

The Arcadia Trails INTEGRIS Center for Addiction Recovery offers effective and formal detox programs that can help:

  • Safely and comfortably clear the body completely of the unwanted substance;
  • Manage symptoms of acute withdrawal, and
  • Encourage ongoing substance use disorder treatment for the detoxing individual.

Whether you’re looking for drug detox, heroin detox, alcohol detox or opiate detox — we are here to help. We give you a fully accredited, licensed, professionally staffed, medical detox facility for the first stages of your long-term, personalized recovery plan.

Medical Detox to Boost Addiction Treatment

Our close supervision ensures safety and comfort while you’re experiencing symptoms and potential medical complications that may result from detoxification.  At times, medications can be administered to ease the process and reduce the strong cravings for the substance that typically are experienced at this point.  

Several drugs require medically supervised detoxification because withdrawal symptoms can cause a person to become dangerously agitated or experience potentially life-threatening seizures/convulsions. These drugs include:

  • Alcohol
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines – Such as Ativan, Valium and Xanax

Withdrawal from other substances does not pose such severe medical risks but can have extremely unpleasant physical effects that can cause some people to relapse and become unable to detox on their own. These substances include:

  • Opiates – Including illicit drugs such as heroin
  • Prescription opioids – Such as hydrocodone and oxycodone, as well as their brand formulations including Lortab, Vicodin, Norco, OxyContin and Percocet; and opiate-like-Kratom and Tramadol
  • Stimulants – Including cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription medications such as Adderall, cannabis - marijuana and Ritalin

Medical detoxification is only the first step in your addiction treatment. Detoxification alone is rarely enough to help patients achieve long-term abstinence so additional treatment may be needed.

What Can I Expect from Withdrawal from Drugs or Alcohol?

Withdrawal refers to the sometimes harsh and painful physical and mental symptoms that occur after stopping or reducing the intake of a drug.

Depending on how much and how long you’ve been using, the acute stages of withdrawal can last anywhere from three to 10 days. Your chances for success are greatly enhanced when a compassionate, medical team is by your side each step of the way.

Withdrawal symptoms vary depending on which drug is being discontinued, but common symptoms may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Depression
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations

Treatment for withdrawal symptoms includes supportive care as well as medications to address discomfort and prevent complications. We have professional and medical experts who can help you through the detox process with a progressive, compassionate and medically assisted approach to ensure your success.

What Can I Expect After the Detox Process?

Once your mind and body are clear of the toxins, we encourage you on to the next stage of rehab. Completing a detox program is your first victory in the journey to a healthy, sober life. To continue the health benefits of detoxification, we help you with the deeper work of recovery.

Each person who comes to Arcadia Trails for treatment and recovery comes with a unique personal history and set of circumstances. We tailor your treatment based on your needs to ensure the most effective approaches and best opportunity for recovery.  

No single treatment works for all people, which is why Arcadia Trails tailors’ services, interventions and setting to your individual needs to help you return to your family, workplace and society.

We do this by addressing not only drug use but any social, psychological, medical or depression problems you may have. Research shows that the longer the treatment, the higher the rate of success.  We address addiction holistically, along with its co-occurring and compounding issues, mental illness and trauma. 

We do a medical screening before admission to ensure we’re providing the safest and most efficient withdrawal management from the moment someone enters our facility.

The Arcadia Trails INTEGRIS Center for Addiction Recovery focuses on your health and wellness while on the path to recovery. Our programs are also cost-effective, and we accept most types of insurance.
