When people are addicted to drugs and alcohol their body depends on their addictive substance daily. Detox at a rehab or detox center helps wean the body off the addictive substance as safely as possible. When they suddenly quit drinking or popping pills, they become sick, irritable, and hunger for their drug of choice. Withdrawal symptoms make it very uncomfortable to the point of relapse. Detox centers like Archbold Treatment understand how uncomfortable substance abuse withdrawals are. We want to make your detox as comfortable as possible. It is important that you start your recovery on the best foot possible and detox treatment is the best for that.
Detox treatment can last from 5 to 10 days depending on the drug of choice and the extent of time the person was abusing the substance. Alcohol withdrawal can cause seizures and be life threatening if not monitored. Our experience with detox treatment ensures your first step toward recovery is safe and effective.

What is Nutritionally Assisted Detox?
Nutritionally Assisted Detox(NAD) is when detox centers use a blend of vitamins, minerals and supplements to assist patients through the withdrawal procedure.
Focusing on nutritional supplements to help with withdrawals help repair the body while detoxing.
Nutritionally Assisted Detox reduces the patients’ side effects, stress levels, and enhances temperament and mental clarity.
This would be considered a holistic detox for drug and alcohol abuse withdrawals.
Why You Need Detox Treatment for Alcohol Withdrawal?
When alcohol is absorbed in the stomach it circulates through the body through the blood so the more alcohol you drink the denser the alcohol is in the blood. This is called blood alcohol concentration or BAC. The blood is then filtered by the kidneys and the liver and then processed out there though through your urine.When the alcohol leaves your system, you begin to feel withdrawal symptoms. The more alcohol you had in your body, the more severe you’re going to experience that withdrawal. in the body, alcohol is actually a kind of poison. It interrupts neuropathways, hinders cell receptors, and destroying liver cells. The withdrawal symptoms may vary, headaches, nausea, body shakes, breathing difficulty, anxiety and depression. More severe withdrawal symptoms are called DTS or delirium tremens. DTS is the most severe form of alcohol withdrawal as it causes global confusion and sympathetic overdrive causing cardiovascular complications. The severe withdrawals of alcohol abuse are why going to Archbold Treatment or a detox center is so important. We monitor your vitals and make sure you are comfortable and well taken care of during the 5 to 10 days of withdrawals.

What Does the Day of the Intervention Look Like?
Detoxing from opiates, pain prescription medications, or heroin is very difficult to go cold turkey. Going cold turkey is the worst way to detox from opioids because it is like having the worst flu syndrome and all your body cravings is heroin or pills. Cold turkey has no medical assistance or support to ensure you do not leave to get drugs. Withdrawals like severe body aches, severe chills, anxiety, irritability moods or behaviors, nausea, GI symptoms with abdominal pain cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea are just some of the symptoms of opiate withdrawals.
When you check in to a detox treatment here at Archbold Treatment or at a detox center, we provide medication to ease some of those symptoms to make detox more tolerable. We try to start your recovery off in the right direction. Putting in the time and effort into making your detox experience comfortable is important for the rest of your recovery.
