Individuals who use any drug for any extended period of time will experience physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms whenever use is ceased abruptly. At CuraWest our main priority is alleviating these symptoms in a safe and supportive environment.
Drug Addiction Withdrawal
The symptoms of drug withdrawal will vary significantly on a person-to-person basis. The severity of the symptoms depends on numerous factors, including which substance/substances were being abused, for how long and in what quantities.
When opioid narcotics were the main drug of choice, withdrawal symptoms are likely to feel similar to a bad flu. They could include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, muscle cramping, sleep disturbances, tremors, night sweats and general feelings of physical discomfort. At CuraWest we often treat the symptoms of opioid withdrawal with medications like Suboxone, which was designed to reduce cravings while alleviating uncomfortable physical symptoms.
We also utilize medication assisted treatment (MAT) when treating withdrawal symptoms associated with benzodiazepines. If not treated by a team of medical professionals and constantly overseen, benzodiazepine withdrawal can prove to be dangerous – even life-threatening. Supervised detox is always necessary.
Upon admission to our detox program, each individual client undergoes an in-depth evaluation. Personal history of substance abuse will be uncovered, and a unique detox treatment plan will be developed accordingly. In most instances, the symptoms of drug withdrawal can be effectively treated with a combination of non-narcotic pain medications, useful tools like tapering or MAT, and an ample amount of relaxation in a tranquil and serene environment. Client comfort is our top priority. Our private rooms and luxury amenities lend themselves to a detox experience unlike any other.
