You’re Not Broken. You Just Need Help. Detox is the First Step To Recovery

Medication Assisted Detox In New Jersey

The long-term effects of substance abuse present a troubling list of issues, including brain damage, strained relationships, criminal activity, and financial ruin. Substance use disorder isn’t something you can run from. But it can be overcome.
If you or someone you’re close to is undergoing the symptoms of substance withdrawal, it can be mentally, emotionally, and physically draining. It can feel like there’s nowhere to turn for relief without succumbing to the pull of dependence on the substance.
Don’t believe the lie. Start here.

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.

What Does Withdrawal Look Like?

The withdrawal symptoms a patient will experience will vary depending on the substance in their system, whether it’s opioids, alcohol, illicit drugs, or prescription medications.

Common Symptoms Include:

These symptoms could last for days or even weeks. Getting through without falling back on substances can seem impossible.

Medication-Assisted Detox At Our New Jersey Detox Center

On its own, a substance use disorder comes with the risk of serious medical complications such as brain damage, heart failure, and severe dental rot.
It changes the way our bodies operate. It alters natural functions and leaves a lasting mark on mental and emotional health.
When faced with withdrawal, our bodies face equally devastating symptoms that, on their own, can have severe medical complications.
Symptoms such as seizures, dehydration, and hallucination should not be managed without the care of medical staff to ensure patient safety and wellbeing.

Common Detox Substances

Every substance will manifest in slightly different symptoms during detox and withdrawal, ranging from mild to severe and even dangerous.
Here are some of the most common substances we help with at our medication-assisted detox center in New Jersey.

Alcohol

Alcohol dependence can affect mental and emotional function, cognitive agility, bodily functions, and impulse control.

Benzodiazepine (Benzos)

This is a classification of psychoactive drugs that includes Xanax, Klonopin, and Valium.

Opioids

Opioids are a classification that includes heroin, opium, morphine, codeine, and methadone.

Illicit or Street Drugs (Stimulants)

Street drugs aren’t such as heroin, meth, cocaine, LSD, or crack cocaine.

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

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.

Benzodiazepine (Benzos)

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.

Opioids

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.

Illicit or Street Drugs (Stimulants)

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

Why You Shouldn’t Detox From Drugs Or Alcohol At Home

Detoxing at home or trying to go “cold turkey” can be lethal. Without medical supervision, symptoms can be too extreme to manage.
The potential for relapse or severe health conditions is exponentially greater when detox is attempted in isolation. In the worst cases, you may succumb to critical medical issues brought about by withdrawal symptoms or become susceptible to relapse due to the severity of those withdrawal symptoms.
This promotes a cycle of ongoing substance use that is tremendously difficult to overcome on your own. The best way to break the cycle is to seek supportive, holistic treatment.
Medically assisted detox is the safest and most successful path to begin true healing and recovery. It allows patients to detox while supervised in a safe and comfortable environment.
Prevent these dangerous complications and call today to begin an inpatient or outpatient detox program. Depending on the severity of the substance use disorder or the substance itself, inpatient may be the most successful option. Here, you will receive 24-hour support, monitoring, and medication assistance.

Types of Detox Programs Available

Inpatient Detox

Every substance will manifest in slightly different symptoms during detox and withdrawal, ranging from mild to severe and even dangerous.
Detox is most successful when it’s part of a comprehensive, long-term recovery plan arranged by a treatment team. At Epiphany Wellness Center, inpatient detox is included as part of our treatment programs. It’s the first step of many individualized steps on the road to healing and recovery.
When you check in to our facility, treatment starts right away with medically supervised and medication-assisted detox. This process will aid in reducing withdrawal symptoms and promote detox success.
Once detoxing is complete, the real work begins. Patients will immediately start the next phase of treatment and a full schedule of holistic and evidence-based therapies.
Treatment will vary from partial hospitalization programs to outpatient sessions. Each patient’s plan will be tailored to suit their needs.

Outpatient Detox

We understand that not everyone is able to complete an inpatient program for reasons related to time, money, or they may not need that level of care.
Epiphany Wellness also offers an outpatient detox program that will be prescribed on a case-by-case basis.
The outpatient program still requires daily sessions at the hospital to continue managing symptoms and evaluating progress.
Once the detoxification process is complete, patients will move directly into a long-term treatment schedule that typically includes 1:1 counseling, holistic therapies, and group sessions.
