Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to Be Painful. Medical Detox Works.

At our inpatient addiction treatment center in Columbus, you or a loved one will undergo 24-hour medical supervision. With the help of a physician, drugs or alcohol are slowly detoxed from the body, often through the aid of a medication known as a “taper.” When warranted, tapering prevents the painful physical and psychological symptoms that notoriously accompany withdrawal.

OARC offers free transportation to and from our facility, no matter where you are. If you have questions or would like to verify insurance benefits, call us today for a free, confidential, no-obligation assessment. 800-481-8457

What is A Detox Center?

Ohio medical detox centers allow you to gradually withdraw from the physical and psychological symptoms associated with overcoming substance abuse. When someone uses drugs or alcohol for a long period of time, their body will becomes dependent on the substance. This is referred to as chemical dependency.

Removal of substances from a person’s body will oftentimes cause physical, psychological, and behavioral symptoms, which is why it can be so difficult to limit use or abstain from the substance. Medical detoxification is the process in which chemical dependency is treated. All of this is done while in an environment that is supervised by a staff of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. Many drugs have significant withdrawal symptoms once you stop using them, causing considerable discomfort or pain. Without proper medical attention, medications, and monitoring, these withdrawal symptoms can become dangerous to your health and even become life-threatening.

There are a wide number of common withdrawal symptoms that someone can experience during withdrawal. Some of these can include:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Shaking
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Anxiety
  • Cold Sweats

The medical staff at our Ohio detox center will administer medications in appropriate doses designed to help lessen the withdrawal symptoms and keep the client comfortable and safe. Some people who attempt to detox themselves at home with similar medications can easily trade one addiction for another. In a medical environment, dosages are controlled and slowly reduced to zero. 

Common medications used to treat withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Benzodiazepines: These are often used to manage alcohol and sedative-hypnotic withdrawal symptoms. Examples include diazepam (Valium) and lorazepam (Ativan).
  • Antidepressants: Certain antidepressants, such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and SNRIs (serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), might be prescribed to help manage mood-related symptoms during withdrawal.
  • Antipsychotics: These medications can be used to address severe agitation, hallucinations, or psychosis that can occur during withdrawal from substances like alcohol or stimulants.
  • Clonidine: This medication is sometimes used to manage symptoms of withdrawal from opioids, alcohol, or nicotine. It can help reduce anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, sweating, runny nose, and cramping.
  • Buprenorphine: Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist that can be used to manage withdrawal symptoms from opioids. It helps reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms and can be used in detoxification as well as maintenance treatment.
  • Naltrexone: Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist that can be used to prevent relapse in individuals who have already detoxed from opioids or alcohol. It blocks the effects of opioids and can reduce cravings.
  • Disulfiram: This medication is used to deter alcohol consumption by causing unpleasant reactions (such as nausea, vomiting, and flushing) when alcohol is ingested. It’s often used as a part of a comprehensive treatment plan for alcohol dependence.
  • Acamprosate: Acamprosate is used to support abstinence in individuals who have successfully detoxed from alcohol. It helps balance the neurotransmitters in the brain that are disrupted by alcohol dependence.
  • Sleep Medications: Drug and alcohol withdrawal often disrupts sleep. Over the counter and prescription medications may be prescribed to help with insomnia. 

In addition to medical support, our fully integrated detox program provides life skills, coping skills, evidence-based psychotherapy, relapse prevention, aftercare planning, 12-step meetings, and more. For clients that want to continue with aftercare, we offer residential drug rehab in the same facility as our detox.

Should I Choose A Detox Center Near Me?

You may wondering if you should just pick the closest detox center near you. While this may seem enticing, especially if you just helped a loved on decide to get help and may be in a hurry to get them into treatment, not all detox centers are the same. While many may provide the core services, such as medication and nursing, the setting and facility type can play a significant factor in both comfort and success. Some may be in a hospital where you are mostly alone for the duration of your detox. Others may be provided in a specific unit in a hospital or in a psychiatric unit.

At Ohio Addiction Recovery Center, our detox program is in a relaxed residential environment that includes recreations, TV rooms, a cafeteria with snacks, among other amenities. Not only that, but you or a loved one will be among peers also undergoing detox or residential rehabilitation for specifically drug or alcohol addiction. This gives you or a loved one an opportunity to bond and begin building a peer support group which is critical for longterm recovery.

In addition or our recovery oriented environment, our detox program is staffed completely with addiction experts. Our physicians, nurses, behavioral health technicians, and counselors all have addiction-specific training and backgrounds in addiction treatment.

Lastly, picking the closest detox center to your home might not be the best option for your situation. The temptation of drugs and alcohol may be limited if you are in an unfamiliar neighborhood or completely different city. A common axiom in the recovery community is to “change people, places, and things.” For this reason, many people may find it helpful to start fresh in a new place.

When you choose Ohio Addiction Recovery Center for drug or alcohol detox in Ohio, you aren’t just picking any detox facility. You are choosing one of the highest rated programs in the state.

Three Phases of Ohio Drug Detox Centers

  1. Evaluation – During the evaluation phase, staff will test samples of substances in the bloodstream, their concentrations and any co-occurring mental or physical conditions that may accompany substance abuse as well as other medical and social assessments. In this phase, an appropriate and individualized plan is developed to assist clients in preparing for long-term recovery.
  2. Stabilization – Stabilization assists patients through the withdrawal process towards a stable and substance-free state. This is done with medication management, proper nutrition, blood pressure monitoring, and medical supervision. The stabilization process ensures the health of client’s begin to be restored, physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
  3. Fostering Entry into Treatment – During the third phase, clients to enter a formal rehab program where they are provided encouragement and support. As important as detox is, it is merely a single step on the road of recovery. Detox is the first but necessary step to address the physical symptoms of addiction. However, rarely does detox provide the necessary support to work on the mental side of addiction. Addiction treatment begins to address the root cause symptoms, develop new coping skills, and foster connection.  This is something that is done while in a rehab program.

Some substances, such as marijuana and stimulants, do not cause physical withdrawal. Physical withdrawal is caused by substances that create physical dependency after prolonged regular use. When physical dependency occurs, it can be painful and even dangerous to abruptly quit “cold turkey.” This is why insurance providers typically cover drug detox.

Substances that cause physical dependency and drug withdrawal include:

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin
  • Oxycontin, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and any prescription opioid
  • Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, Valium, and any prescription benzodiazepine
  • Barbiturates
  • Ambien, Lunesta, and many prescription sleep aid medications
  • Many tranquilizers and sedatives

Does health insurance cover detox?

What insurance does your detox center accept?

How Long Will I Stay At Your Ohio Detox Center?

In general, you can expect the detox process to last anywhere between 5-14 days. However, the amount of time that you would have to spend in detox can vary depending on several important factors. Everyone experiences drug and alcohol withdrawal differently, and every drug has a different effect. First, the length of time that you have to spend in detox depends on the length of time you have been abusing substances. The substance being abused is also very important. While each person is different, here are substance abuse withdrawal timelines for a general idea of how long you can expect to stay in detox:

How long does it take to detox from Benzos?

Benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, Ativan, or Klonopin can create dangerous physical dependency similar to alcohol. Hours after the last dose is taken, withdrawal symptoms may begin and typically include anxiety and difficulty sleeping. In 24-48 hours withdrawal symptoms can worsen and can include hallucinations, seizures, sweating, and confusion. Benzodiazepine detox should never be attempted at home and should always be conducted with medical supervision. In our Ohio detox facility, we slowly taper your body off of benzodiazepines over 7-14 days under close medical supervision. This allows for not only safe detoxification but also a much more comfortable withdrawal process.

How long does it take to detox from Heroin and other Opiates?

Hollywood and pop culture often depict opioid detox as an extremely excruciating process, but this is only true if attempted at home or “cold-turkey.” During opioid withdrawal, most people will begin experiencing withdrawal symptoms between 6 and 24 hours after their last dose. Side effects can include muscle aches, cold sweats, anxiety, depression, cravings, and flu-like symptoms. In our opioid detox center, these symptoms can be reduced to the absolute minimum. Medication-assisted tapering allows your body to rid opioids slowly over 7-14 days. Medications reduce cravings, physical symptoms, and psychological symptoms of opioid withdrawal. Group and individual therapy also greatly increase the success rate of detoxing from opioids.

How long does it take to detox from Alcohol?

If someone is physically dependent on alcohol, withdrawal symptoms can develop between six and 24 hours after the last drink was consumed. Symptoms can include headaches, tremors, nausea, and stomach aches. After 72 hours, withdrawal symptoms are typically at their worst. Alcohol withdrawal can be severe and life-threatening if not treated under the treatment of a medical professional and should not be done alone. Alcohol withdrawal can cause heart attack, stroke, and even death. At our Columbus, OH medical detox center, our medical staff slowly and safely rid your body of alcohol through a medication-assisted taper. This not only prevents dangerous physical symptoms like tremors and seizures but also limits cravings, depression, anxiety. Our mission is to make alcohol detox as pain-free as possible.

Stimulant Detox Timeline

Stimulants, such as cocaine, Adderall, and crystal meth typically take the shortest amount of time to detox from, and symptoms depend on a number of factors including length of use, frequency of use, and route of administration. Between the first six and 24 hours, users will experience an initial crash. After 24 and 36 hours, a person will begin to feel tired, depressed, and have sleep problems. Oftentimes, stimulant withdrawal will end from 96 hours to a few weeks after the last dose of the stimulant was taken.

In addition, the duration of your detox program also depends on the frequency of your substance use. You may have to undergo medical detoxification in Ohio for an extended period of time due to the amount of the substance that you have taken. Mixing various substances together will often result in a longer detox process.

A stay in a medical detox program also depends on any underlying medical conditions you have at the time of treatment. Your height, weight, age, and mental health history can also play a role.  To learn more and understand your options call us today at 800-481-8457
