Rehab Care Center Denton – Call (940) 222-4228 and Find Help Today!
Detox Rehabilitation Center Denton is a safe, medically supervised clinic that helps clients take their first step toward sobriety. Detoxification, or detox, eliminates accumulated toxins and unwanted residual substances from the body. Detoxification, however, is not be confused with drug and/or alcohol treatment. Detox alone isn’t rehabilitation, nor does it equal recovery. Detox procedures differ depending on which drug is being abused. ‘Cold turkey’ methods aren’t suitable for all kinds of substance addictions and therefore, it is most effective if the detox procedure takes place under the care and supervision of a medically trained staff. Some people might find the idea of detox frightening. At Alcohol Detox Centers Texas, every precaution is taken to ensure that detox is safe and secure for every patient. Call Rehab Care Center Denton to discuss your situation with a caring, compassionate detoxification expert at 940 222-4228.
Kinds of Detox
The two kinds of detox methods commonly used are medically supervised withdrawal and social detoxification. Which type to use depends largely on:
- The type of drug being used
- Age of the client
- Length of abuse
- The kind of setting the experts think will be most helpful to the client
- Mental state of the client
- Physical well-being of the patient
People who benefit the most from medically supervised withdrawal include people who have been addicted to:
- Pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
- Barbiturates or sedatives
- Opioids (heroin, OxyContin7, codeine)
Sometimes the especially painful and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms of the above mentioned drugs are mitigated by certain detox medications that can only be prescribed by a doctor. It is also highly advisable for people who are severely alcoholic or who are withdrawing from alcohol and other drugs to undergo medically supervised detox. Medical facilities can use medicines to prevent dangerous health conditions that can arise from severe alcohol withdrawal including hallucinations, seizures and other physical and psychological health conditions.
Social detoxification generally used for people whose drug use will only cause to withdrawal symptoms, for example with drugs such as:
- Infrequent opioid use
- Infrequent alcohol use
The social detoxification method, monitored by experienced withdrawal staff, attempts to help clients manage and work through their cravings and withdrawals without medication. Social detoxification is a “socially-based” experience; meaning clients live together as they go through detox and are not separated in institution-like rooms. This type of detox procedure prepares addicts for a recovery treatment program where they live with, work alongside and support other recovering addicts.
Rehab Care Center Denton’s Techniques
Drug Detoxification Denton, TX provides a treatment program that offers detox with the knowledge that different kinds of drugs result in different withdrawal symptoms. Depressants, such as alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, may result in:
- High blood pressure
- High heart rate
- high body temperature
Stimulants (for example, methamphetamine, cocaine, and Ritalin) don’t regularly require much more than emotional support from counselors, family and friends. However, sometimes chronic stimulant abusers require medication because they’ve been diagnosed with stimulant psychosis, which can cause:
- Feelings of suicide
- Attempts at suicide
Opiates, such as oxycodone, heroin, methadone, morphine and codeine can cause severe withdrawal symptoms which can pose health dangers, including:
- Runny nose
- Upset stomach or vomiting
- Quickening pulse
- Muscle aches
- Rapid breathing
- Bone sensitivity

Unlike other detox facilities, Alcohol Addiction Rehabilitation offers guidance during and after the detoxification process because they understand how easy it can be to relapse after getting sober. Detoxification rehab offers detox in tandem with recovery treatment and other drug and alcohol recovery strategies, making detox an effective first step.
