Drug Detox for Men
Many factors impact the detox process. Depending on the individual circumstances of each potential man, we may require a client to enter a detox facility prior to admission. For some addicts, the beginning of treatment is detox which is a controlled and medically supervised withdrawal from the drug. No single approach to detox is guaranteed to be best for all addicts. Detox centres in Vancouver can sometimes provide the professional help and support needed for successful detox recovery.
What impacts the Detox Process
- Depending on the drugs or substances that have been used, a client may not be required to detox prior to admission
- If detox is medically indicated, then we can support the man through that process
If attending a detox facility is part of your recovery process, we highly recommend that you stay on our waitlist while you are at detox to continue the supportive relationship. Once you have completed the detox phase, we can facilitate a transition straight from detox to our drug treatment facility. Once you are at our drug treatment facility, you will have the opportunity to see addiction doctors during weekly clinics.
What is Detox
Detoxification or detox is the removal of toxic substances from the body. Additionally, it can refer to the period of withdrawal when a person’s body works to reacclimatize to normal after sustained long-term use of an addictive substance. Alcohol detox is not a treatment for alcoholism. After detoxification, other treatments must be undergone to deal with the underlying addiction that caused the alcohol use. Drug or medicated detoxification protocols are used to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping the addicted individual adjust to living without drug use. Drug detoxification is not meant to treat addiction but rather serve as an early step in long-term treatment. Detoxification may be achieved drug free or may use medications as an aspect of treatment.
