Detoxification is a necessary part of every recovery process, and quite often it is the part that leads many to relapse. To increase your chances of success, Duke City Recovery Toolbox provides medical and clinical detox support.
Detox is the process through which your body eliminates toxins—including illicit and prescription drugs—from your system. For individuals with opioid dependency or drug addiction, the elimination of substances your body has become accustomed to—i.e., drugs or alcohol—often brings about withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms vary by drug, but most common symptoms include:
- Muscle cramps and/or aches
- Nausea and/or vomiting
Severity of symptoms tend to be worse for individuals with a long history of substance abuse and/or who were taking high doses. In some cases, withdrawal can present serious health risks.
Detox Support in Outpatient Treatment
At Duke City Recovery Toolbox, we give you the tools you need to persevere in your treatment program. Our detox support includes:
During your intake appointment, we will begin to educate you about addiction and the recovery process. We help you know what to expect so that you can prepare yourself physically and emotionally.
- Recovery medications
Participants seeking treatment for opioid dependency may receive methadone or suboxone. Recovery medications require participants to meet eligibility requirements outlined by federal and state regulatory agencies.
- Individual counseling
Our clinical team is available to help you cope with the discomfort of early recovery so that you can move past it and continue with your treatment program.
Because we know that withdrawal is the first stumbling block to successful recovery, we strive to prevent onset of symptoms. New eligible participants will receive their first dose of medication the same day as their intake appointment.
Additional Detox Support Resources
Duke City Recovery Toolbox is an outpatient treatment facility, so some detox support resources may not always be available. Our team is happy to provide you with information about additional community resources in the greater Albuquerque area that can help you get through the early stages of recovery.
