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, esophageal varices (bleeding from the esophagus).

Malnutrition is a big factor in alcoholism.

Primary malnutrition is due to a decrease in nutrients intake. Digestion impairment and malabsorption of nutrients cause secondary malnutrition. Tertiary malnutrition results in the ability 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?

They usually appear 48-72 hours after last intake. There are commonly seen in clients who have withdrawal seizures, acute mental illness, liver failure, and older age. Symptoms include: confusion, severe anxiety, hallucinations, profuse sweating, seizures, high blood pressure, racing and irregular heartbeat, severe tremors, and a 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, shakiness, to sever complication such as seizures and delirium tremens (also known as DTs).

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

Between 12-24 hours after the last drink, some clients may experience visual, auditory, or tactile hallucinations. Usually they 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 24-48 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 codein, heroin, hydrocodone (Vicodin), hydromorphone (Dilaudid), methadone, demerol, morphine, and oxycodone (Percocet, Oxycontin).

Symptoms from detox usually start within 12 hours of last usage, which can include agitation, anxiety, muscle aches, insomnia, runny nose, sweating, 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 7-10 day detox program. Medications are given on a taper system, and dosage is determined by the MD at facility. The length of detox is determined upon appointment with the doctor.

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

  • 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 Epson salt baths to help aid in muscle relaxation. Melatonin and valerian root may be given to help the client sleep.

CNS Detox

CNS Detox

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

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

Symptoms 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 4-7 day detox for stimulants. The detox process may last several hours to days.

  • On Day 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 Day 4-10, withdrawal symptoms start to decrease however the cravings increase. Extreme fatigue and severe depression may start to become present.
  • On Day 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 might be but are not limited to:

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

Vital signs will be closely monitored, as detox from stimulants is best under the supervision of detox professionals. Taper method using Suboxone may be used to help lessen the withdrawal symptoms.

Sedative Detox

Sedative Detox

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

The signs of 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 can vary in difference depending on the drug being taken, as each one has a different ½ 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 the MD at facility and are closely monitored by a Registered Nurse.

The safest way to detox off of sedatives is to taper off the client gradually. It gives the body a chance to adjust to the lower levels present in the body and decreases the risk of complications (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 substance 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? Etc.

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 with 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 plan for 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 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 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 for 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 through their work due to substance abuse or incident that involved medications or alcohol, or 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 mean 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 backgrounds, as well as preventing a substitutional problem.
