Detox is an important first step in recovering from substance abuse. Appropriate medicine, a skilled medical team, and beautiful environment help make the transition to a clean, sober life a lot easier. Hall County is the perfect place to begin your road to sobriety. Located in the Chattahoochee River and Oconee River basins, Hall County comprises the entirety of the Gainesville metropolitan area. With a population of approximately 190,000, Hall County promises a small town atmosphere that moves at a leisurely pace that will allow you to remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus entirely on your detox treatment. With heroin and opiate abuse on the rise, the detox facilities in Hall County are well-equipped with the latest medicines and treatments to provide addicts with a comfortable environment that supports your detox process.
Once you’ve decided to commit yourself to getting clean, you have to choose whether you want inpatient or outpatient detox care. While it depends on your personal situation and needs, both are overall effective and lay the groundwork for longer 30-, 60-, and 90-day rehabilitation programs.
With inpatient care, the patient is admitted to a detox facility, where they stay for the duration of the detox program under the direct care and supervision of the medical staff, who can provide counsel and medication for withdrawal symptoms. Outpatient care, on the other hand, allows patients to stay at home while they undergo detox with the stipulation that they must check in with the treatment facility daily.
Most doctors recommend inpatient care as it allows for immediate care to better manage withdrawals, while also creating a more controlled space that does away with any distractions that could keep you from focusing on detox. If you’re not sure which would work best for you, talk to your doctor or contact us.
Drugs and alcohol, by design, affect your mental health. All psychoactive drugs can potentially cause mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and psychosis. Other drug users already suffer from mental health issues. Detox can improve your mental health and help you better manage existing issues in the event of a dual diagnosis.
Chronic substance abuse can feel like drugs are more in control of your life than you are. Detox can put the steering wheel back into your hands. No more existing just to get the next high. Just living your life to its fullest.
You start with an intake consultation and assessment wherein you discuss your drug use with a therapist, who will develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
You will undergo a general medical evaluation to address medical issues, nutrition deficiencies, and other health concerns.
The detox process can lead to some harsh withdrawal symptoms, but try to participate in activities available at the center. This will fight back feelings of loneliness and remind you why you’re going through detox in the first place.
