Alcohol Detox

Alcohol Detox

Once alcohol reaches the brain, it has an immediate intoxicating effect. The drinker may lose consciousness as the blood alcohol levels rise.

Symptoms of alcoholism include slurred speech, incoordination, loss of full control of bodily movements, memory loss, respiratory depression, coma, liver failure and esophageal varices (bleeding from the esophagus).

Malnutrition is a big factor in alcoholism. Primary malnutrition is due to a decrease in nutrient intake. Digestion impairment and malabsorption of nutrients cause secondary malnutrition. Tertiary malnutrition results in the inability to convert nutrients due to the alcohol consumption which inhibits fat absorption and all fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamin A, B, D, E, K.

What exactly are delirium tremens, or DTs?

Delirium tremens usually appears 48 to 72 hours after the last intake of alcohol. DTs commonly seen in clients who have withdrawal seizures, acute mental illness, liver failure and older age.

Symptoms include:

  • Confusiom
  • Severe anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Profuse sweating
  • Seizures
  • High blood pressure
  • Racing and irregular heartbeat
  • Severe tremors
  • Low-grade fever

    What is Bright Future Recovery’s detox process for alcohol?

    Alcohol detox can begin as early as two hours after the last intake and can persist for up to two weeks. Alcohol detox symptoms can range from mild anxiety and shakiness; to severe complications such as seizures and delirium tremens (DTs).

    Common symptoms seen are shaky hands, sweating, mild anxiety, nausea, vomiting, headaches and insomnia.

    Between 12 and 24 hours after the last drink, some clients may experience visual, auditory, or tactile hallucinations. Usually these end around 48 hours.

    Withdrawal seizure disorders are more common in those clients who already have a preexisting seizure disorder. The seizures usually can be seen within 24 and 48 hours after last drink. The risk level goes up for those clients who have gone through multiple detoxifications. It is important to not detox off alcohol by yourself, as there is a very high mortality rate.

    Opiate/Opioid Detox

    Opiate/Opioid Detox

    Opioids are drugs that are used to treat pain. Examples of opioids are codeine, heroin, hydrocodone (Vicodin), hydromorphone (Dilaudid), methadone, demerol, morphine, and oxycodone (Percocet, OxyContin).

    Symptoms from detox usually start within 12 hours of last use, which can include agitation, anxiety, muscle aches, insomnia, runny nose, sweating and yawning.

    Late symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, dilated pupils, goose bumps, nausea and vomiting.

    What is Bright Future Recovery’s detox process for opioids?

    We have a 7 to 10 day detox program. Medications are given on a taper system, and dosage is determined by a licensed physician. The length of detox is determined upon by appointment.

    Medications that may be given include:

    • Methadone – Strictly used to detox heavy methadone use. The dose is slowly decreased until the client no longer needs the medication.
    • Hydroxyzine – Helps reduce anxiety symptoms.
    • Subutex – Used to reduce anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, sweating, runny nose, yawning and cramping.
    • Ambien – Short-term use to aid with sleep during detox.

    We also encourage taking Epsom salt baths to help aid in muscle relaxation. Melatonin and valerian root may be given to help the client sleep.

    CNS Detox

    CNS Drug Detox

    CNS stimulant drugs include amphetamines (such as ecstasy), bath salts and cocaine. These drugs increase activity in the brain heightening energy and alertness.

    As an individual takes the stimulant drug for a long period of time, the brain becomes dependent on the drug to regulate cognitive function and focus.

    Symptoms of stimulant drug withdrawal include palpitations, feeling of impending doom, tachycardia (high heart rate), hypertension (high blood pressure), irregular heartbeat, heart attacks, agitation, combativeness, confusion, hallucinations, paranoia, aggression and suicide attempts.

    As the drug wears off, signs of depression, exhaustion, irritability and sleeplessness set in.

    What is Bright Future Recovery’s detox process for stimulants?

    We have a 4 to 7 day detox for stimulants. The detox process may last several hours to several days.

    • On Days 1-3, the client will start to crave the drug and have trouble sleeping. Heavy users may start to experience hallucinations, paranoia and panic.
    • On Days 4-10, withdrawal symptoms start to decrease however the cravings increase. Extreme fatigue and severe depression may start to become present.
    • On Days 11-17, symptoms begin to lessen.

    Please note that depression may last days to months once detox is complete.

    Other meds that may be given include, but are not limited to:

    • Anti-seizure – Diazepam
    • Antidepressants – per MD recommendations
    • Antianxiety – Lorazepam
    • Blood pressure – Clonidine

    Vital signs will be closely monitored, as detox from stimulants is best under the supervision of detox professionals. A taper method using Suboxone may be used to help lessen the withdrawal symptoms as recommended by a medical physician.

    Sedative Detox

    Sedative Detox

    Sedatives depress or slow down the central nervous system. Examples include barbiturates, benzodiazepines (such as diazepam), hypnotics and sleeping aids.

    The signs of sedative withdrawals include: restlessness, muscle shaking, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, depression and anxiety. In some cases, the user experiences hallucinations, delirium and potentially fatal seizures.

    Detoxing length can vary depending on the drug being taken, as each one has a different half-life (the time is takes to leave the body). Some symptoms may begin at about 7 days and can last as long as a month or longer.

    What is Bright Future Recovery’s detox process for sedatives?

    The client will meet with the MD to determine the medication used and the dosage for tapering.

    We plan to keep the client as safe as possible during this time. All medications prescribed are through a licensed physician and are closely monitored by a Registered Nurse.

    The safest way to detox off sedatives is to taper the client gradually. It gives the body a chance to adjust to the lower levels present in the system and decreases the risk of complications (namely, seizures) that may be brought on by going “cold turkey”.

    Additional Services

    In addition to our addiction detox services, Bright Future Recovery offers pre-, during, and post family interventions for drug abuse, alcoholism, sex addiction, eating disorders and gambling.

    After a client has been safely detoxed, we also offer a one-year first stage monitoring program.

    Drug & Alcohol Intervention Service

    Our drug and alcohol intervention services includes meeting with the family in person or on the phone to discuss the IP’s (indicated patient) personal situation.

    The beginning process consists of a series of personal questions in depth to better understand what will be needed to approach the IP.

    Examples of questions we will discuss include:

    • Where is the addict living?
    • Are they working?
    • What substances do they consume?
    • How long have they been using?
    • How much money do they spend?
    • Are they suicidal?
    • Do they have legal matters?

    Once the interventionist has gathered enough knowledge on the individual’s background, they will plan with the family or loved ones regarding when to proceed with the actual intervention. Once the intervention date and time is set, the interventionist will arrange family transportation to arrive at the intervention location. The intervention will take place where the family feels is best for their loved one. This may be at the family home, a park, or even a mocked-up event.

    The interventionist will help the family determine who is best to participate in the intervention. Prior to intervening, the family and friends of the IP will meet with interventionist to go over how the intervention is going to play out. During the intervention, the interventionist will guide the family through the process.

    Once the addict agrees to treatment, depending on which facility the family has agreed upon, the interventionist will accompany the IP either by vehicle or airplane. The interventionist will ascertain that the IP has arrived safely. The interventionist will continue to be available via phone, for any follow-up questions, concerns and advice the family and loved ones may have post-intervention.

    Bright Future Recovery also offers additional web interventions that may be needed by the IP during their rehabilitation program.

    Post-Treatment Relapse Prevention Aftercare Program

    This program is for individuals who have just completed a rehabilitation program, individuals who may be on a probation period at their work (due to substance abuse or incident that involved medications or alcohol), and individuals who feel it is necessary to enlist in a relapse prevention program.

    The first stage monitoring program has been statistically proven to keep individuals on their toes when it comes to using and abusing drugs and alcohol. Once signed up for monitoring, the individual will be required to provide a UA (urine analysis) test at random by the program. They will be alerted via text message, phone call or email when and where to test.

    This program does not require an individual to remain in one city or state; there are monitoring labs nationwide. By passing or failing a UA, the monitoring system stays on top of the individual and may call for increasing their UA testing from twice a month to three times a month. The first stage monitoring program also offers a breathalyzer that will help those with alcohol abuse backgrounds, as well as preventing a substitutional problem.

    Do I need detox?

    If your level of substance use has become so dire that you are seriously considering professional rehabilitation, then you should certainly plan for detox treatment as part of your recovery journey.

    Detox will help flush all of the toxins and substances out of your system so your body can truly begin to heal. As you’ve been reading, withdrawal is an arduous process, and undergoing professional treatment during this time can alleviate many of those symptoms.

    Additionally, medical detox removes the risk of dying during the withdrawal process, which sometimes happens in cases where people are addicted to alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids or stimulants.

    For people with full-blown chemical dependencies, attempting to self-detox at home is inadvisable: The minimum risk is relapse; the biggest risk is death.

    Why should I choose your detox services?

    Detox treatment at Bright Future Recovery is so much more than handing you medication to help you come down from your past substance of choice. We offer a comprehensive experience that will help you begin to recover mentally and physically from the addiction.

    Our facility is situated on a large, tranquil plot of land on the outskirts of California’s Bay Area. You can allow your mind and body to relax from the intensity of withdrawal by doing yoga, equine therapy, getting a message, using our sauna, swimming, using natural relaxation oils or taking an Epsom salt bath here. And for when you want to start rebuilding muscle and endurance, you can work out in our on-site gym, play basketball or ping pong, or go walking or running outdoors.

    We’re also an exclusive facility that only treats up to nine clients at a time, so you will receive plenty of individual attention from our staff and you’ll have a better chance of really getting to know your peers than you would in an overcrowded, bustling facility.

    Explore the Amenities at Our Facility

    Additionally, Bright Future Recovery is so much more than addiction detox services. As you read above, we can help plan and manage your entire rehab journey and then monitor your sobriety after you’ve graduated treatment. And if you’re reading this on behalf of a loved one struggling with addiction, you can use our professional intervention service to help coax this individual into rehab.

    How long does the program take?

    The Bright Future Recovery detox program lasts between 7 and 10 days. The length for each client will depend on the substance they used and the severity of their addiction. Essentially, the amount of time they need for detox treatment will coincide with their acute withdrawal symptoms.

    Some clients will overcome acute withdrawal about 5 days after they last took their substance; these individuals usually exit our program after 7 days. Clients with severe alcohol and heroin addictions may need the full 10 days before graduating.

    Other substances such as stimulants and benzodiazepines are known for longer acute withdrawal timelines, so clients who were addicted to one of these two drugs typically need 10 days of detox treatment.

    When you meet with our partner doctor prior to beginning the program, they will help determine the length of treatment needed. Thus, you and your family will not be left in the dark about how long the program will take for you.
