Medical Detox in Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ: Understanding the Process

Medical detoxification, often called “detox,” is a process that helps you overcome physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. It is usually the first stage of addiction treatment.

The initial process of detoxing your body from harmful substances like drugs and alcohol is a vulnerable one, and it is not typically a time when intensive therapy is appropriate. Instead, attending an inpatient or outpatient detox center before other services (e.g., inpatient rehab) is the most effective starting point for effective.

This process involves the use of medications to manage withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications that can arise during the detoxification process. Staff will also provide support, comfort, and symptom monitoring.

At Purpose Healing Center, we provide 24/7 medical detox in Arizona, which means that patients receive around-the-clock medical supervision and support during the withdrawal process. We also offer outpatient detox center services for clients with less severe withdrawal symptoms.

What to Expect During the Detox Process

Some of what to expect during the detox process depends on the substance use disorder you have or the prescription drugs or other substance(s) you are detoxing from. For example, alcohol withdrawal can differ from withdrawal from stimulants.

The duration of drug and alcohol abuse, frequency of substance use, and other factors can also play a role.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms can be both physical and mental. During the first stages of alcohol and drug detox, you may experience any of the following symptoms, which can differ in severity.

  • Cravings.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Headaches.
  • Chills or sweating.
  • Depression or mood swings.
  • Blood pressure changes.
  • Shaking or trembling.
  • Irritability or agitation.
  • Heart palpitations.
  • Goosebumps.
  • Abdominal cramping.
  • Insomnia.
  • Confusion.
  • Changes in pupil size.
  • Body aches.
  • Seizures.
  • Paranoia.
  • Fatigue.

We are here to help you restore your physical health and mental health after substance abuse. Stays in detox facilities are usually very short, but the medical care and support they provide can be absolutely crucial.

Why Does Detox Matter in Addiction Treatment?

Some people considering medical detox wonder, “Is it possible to go through the detox process myself?” However, detox treatment matters, and in some cases, it can be life-saving. Here are some of the top reasons to get inpatient or outpatient medical detox services at a qualified detox facility like Purpose Healing Center.

Safe Withdrawal Management

The #1 reason to go to detox is that withdrawals can be dangerous in some cases. For example, benzodiazepine detox, Opioid withdrawal, and alcohol withdrawal are potentially life-threatening if they are not conducted properly. 

Reduced Discomfort and Distress

Sometimes, even with substances less likely to cause risky withdrawal symptoms like seizures or death, self-detox can be incredibly uncomfortable. Our team of medical professionals is here to ease withdrawal symptoms.

Support for Cravings

The initial process of discontinuing substances has a high potential for relapse in those with drug or alcohol addiction. Our medical detox facility provides supervision and support to help you get through cravings in the early stages of recovery from drug abuse.

What to Expect After Detox

After detox, it is highly recommended that you enter an addiction treatment program. Drug and alcohol detox programs are usually short, lasting for about 3-10 days, and they don’t address the underlying causes of addiction the way rehab programs for substance use disorders do.

Medical detox services are here to help you through the acute detox period. Some withdrawal symptoms can persist for longer, even if they aren’t physically dangerous. For example, prolonged mental health symptoms. Having a treatment team by your side matters.

Both of our Arizona drug and alcohol addiction treatment facilities have a full continuum of care available, including medical detoxification, inpatient rehab, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment.

Just as we offer detox for most-to-all substances, our post-detox treatment programs address all types and severity levels of substance abuse and common co-occurring concerns. 

Our Post-Detox Rehab Programs

Inpatient Program

Ongoing treatment at our alcohol and drug rehab in Arizona can help you avoid relapse, work through co-occurring dual diagnosis (mental health) issues, develop a strong set of coping skills, and rebuild your life. While detox is short-term, clients often stay in our inpatient or outpatient programs for 30, 60, or 90 days.

Since we offer a full continuum of care, it isn’t uncommon for clients to start out with a higher level of substance use disorder treatment (e.g., residential inpatient) and move down to a lower level of care, like our partial hospitalization program (PHP). This is called a “step-down” approach.

You’ll get a customized treatment plan designed to fit your needs. Most Purpose Healing Center clients engage in a combination of group, individual, and family therapy. Couples therapy or counseling is also offered via Zoom or in-person meetings. Other activities can include but aren’t limited to supportive recreation activities, medication management, and life skills.

You can transition into one of these programs once you are medically stable. Purpose Healing Center offers free intake assessments and tours so that we can get to know your needs and you can get to know our facilities. We’re here to help you decide on a level of care, verify your insurance coverage, or help out with anything else we can.

FAQs About Medical Detox

What is one of the first signs of withdrawal?

Some withdrawal symptoms depend on the substance. Common early signs of withdrawal include shaking or tremors, irritability, chills or sweating, nausea, vomiting, headaches, and heart palpitations. Oral medication and other treatments can be used to provide relief.

What is the meaning of detox therapy?

In substance abuse, detoxification or “detox” is the process of getting substances (drugs and alcohol) out of the body. Medical detox programs at a treatment center help you detox safely with a team of professionals present.

What is the side effect of detox?

Physical symptoms, mental health-related symptoms (e.g., mood swings, anxiety), and drug or alcohol cravings are all possible side effects of detox. Long-term or heavy substance use can lead to more severe withdrawals.

For the best recovery outcomes, medical care in a detox facility followed by ongoing substance use disorder treatment services is usually the preferred approach to treatment among medical and mental health professionals. While it takes time, healing is possible.

How soon do withdrawals from drugs and alcohol start?

Withdrawal symptoms can begin anywhere from hours to days after the last time you consumed a substance. The acute, or initial, detox period (where symptoms are most dangerous) can last from a few days to about a week.
