Rayville Recovery does not offer drug replacement therapy such as Suxbone, Subutex or Methadone.
The mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal can be overwhelming but the process does not have to be. The Detox Program available at Rayville Recovery is medically-supported. Our certified staff can make the process more comfortable while also keeping you safe.
Why Medically-Supported Detox?
When you take drugs or alcohol into your body, there are both mental effects and physiological changes being made to your body. Drugs and alcohol stimulate reactions in your body that were previously produced by other natural substances. Over time, your body will produce less of those natural substances and begin to rely more and more on the alcohol or drugs. Because everyone of us have different metabolisms and unique DNA, the amount of time before these changes occur can vary dramatically.
Once you have become dependent or addicted, you are going to begin to experience mild to severe discomfort and pain when you attempt to stop taking the drug or drinking alcohol. This process of detox should take place in a professional drug and alcohol rehab facility. In some cases, it feels simply impossible to stop. In cases where someone is drinking alcohol or taking a number of drugs, ceasing to take the drug or to just stop drinking cold-turkey can result in serious medical problems and in some case deadly ones.
The U.S. government has estimated that 95% of the people who try to stop taking opioids on their own fail to complete their withdrawal. If a person is dependent or addicted to opioids like Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, oxycodone or methadone or on an opiate like heroin, the withdrawal may not be life-threatening, but it is usually so painful that that people are simply unable to cope and wind up using, yet again. Detox should be handled with inpatient rehab.
To address the safety issue, the discomfort and pain issues of drug and alcohol withdrawal it is recommended that people turn to a facility like Rayville Recovery that provides medically-supported detox.
