Medication Assisted Detox In New Jersey

Detox is the first step to recovery but you don’t have to muscle through on your own. The caring and qualified staff at Epiphany Wellness Detox Center in New Jersey are here to help you heal.

Drug or Alcohol Detoxification

The Body’s Natural Detoxification Process

Most drugs and substances remain in the body for an extended period of time. If the patient is in the habit of regularly dosing without giving the body time to fully process and expel the toxins from the previous dose, they will compound on one another.
This cycle will intensify the symptoms of withdrawal and can increase the risk of relapse. Detox is the process of allowing those harmful toxins to be expelled from the body without re-dosing.
Patients visiting our New Jersey detox center report nausea, fevers, headaches, dehydration, and stomach cramps. It is a necessary, albeit uncomfortable, process that is often the first step to recovery.
If you or a loved one tries to detox on your own, you may find that the symptoms are too difficult and painful to manage and despair and desperation set in.
Don’t wait until you’re too close to the wrong solution.

Detox and Withdrawal Timeline

According to the National Library of Medicine’s detailed study on substance withdrawal management, below are the projected timelines for withdrawal symptoms.[2]
It’s important to note that every patient’s experience will be completely unique and may not perfectly align with these projections.
An individualized approach to medication-assisted detox is essential for lasting recovery.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms begin to appear within 6 to 24 hours after the last drink. Symptoms will be the most severe in the 36 to 72-hour window and can last anywhere from 2 to 10 days.

For short-acting benzos such as oxazepam, alprazolam, and temazepam, withdrawal typically begins 1 to 2 days after the last dose and lasts for 2 to 4 weeks, possibly longer.

For long-acting benzos such as diazepam and nitrazepam, withdrawal usually begins 2 to 7 days after the last dose and lasts for at least 2 to 8 weeks.

For short-acting opioids like heroin, symptoms begin to appear within 8 to 24 hours after the last use and continue for up to 4 to 10 days.

For long-acting opioids such as methadone, withdrawal symptoms kick in 12 to 48 hours after the last use and continue for 10 to 20 days.

Withdrawal symptoms from stimulants begin within 24 hours of the last use and can last as long as 3 to 5 days.
