Supervised Medical Detox
At Cypress Lake Recovery, we understand the complexity and pain of addiction and offer our clients an effective supervised detox from drugs and alcohol.
Our comprehensive detox services are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, providing them with the care and support they need to begin the journey to recovery.
As part of our promise of complete, holistic care, we offer a supervised medical detox program in East Texas that allows patients to enter full-time recovery treatment with a clear mindset, free from the pull of physical and chemical dependence.
Resisting cravings and compulsions is nearly impossible as long as drugs or alcohol remain in the body. A supervised detox is necessary for a seamless transition into treatment and recovery if you are actively abusing substances.
Do I Need Medical Detox Services?
Withdrawal symptoms are notoriously difficult when attempting to detox in an unsupervised environment. The severity of withdrawal symptoms largely depends on the abused substance and the frequency of use. Symptoms range from body aches to nausea, vomiting, and hallucinations. In many cases, pushing through withdrawal at home can be dangerous without medical support.
Choosing a treatment program with medically monitored detox means you’ll be cared for by medical professionals as you go through withdrawal. Under physician and nurse supervision, you’ll be kept as safe and comfortable as possible. In a supervised environment, turning to drugs or alcohol to relieve symptoms isn’t an option.
During the patient intake process, we will decide if the individual requires medical detox based on their drug of choice and frequency of use. Not every patient will need a medically supervised detox. If medical detox is recommended, it will be carried out by a licensed physician. Family history, existing medical conditions, and a behavioral and social assessment will all be considered.
Personalized Medical Detox Plan in Texas
Based on the recommendations of your physician, therapist, or psychiatrist, a personalized detox plan will be created for you. Our team will take you through the steps of the medical detox so you know what to expect during treatment. All health risks are explained regarding particular substances and their associated withdrawal symptoms.
The decision to undergo a medically assisted detox is a big step—we congratulate you. It’s the first step towards lasting recovery, and we are committed to working closely with each patient during this phase of treatment.
We understand that many of our patients may be fearful of detox—having tried to get sober independently. There is discomfort involved in the detox process. But we assure you that you will be under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs), medical doctors, trained addiction counselors, and compassionate clinical staff available around the clock. Our supervised medical detox programs will safely manage your withdrawal symptoms with dignity and care.
Our Detox Program Includes
Alcohol withdrawal can be fatal if not monitored by medical staff, particularly in severe or prolonged drinking cases. Medications to keep serious symptoms at bay may be required during this process. Every patient that goes through alcohol detox is under full-time supervision to check for vital signs and any withdrawal symptoms that may occur.
Alcoholism is a disease that controls the mind and body and leaves the spirit depleted and discouraged. Through detox, we can take control of the physical and emotional hold that alcohol has on each patient so that they may once again have autonomy and free will in their own lives.
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms may include:
- High blood pressure
- Nausea and vomiting
- Increased or irregular heart rate
- Tremors (shakes)
Drug Detox in East Texas
Cypress Lakes Lodge is fully equipped to treat addiction to a range of commonly abused drugs, from prescription painkillers to crack cocaine, and this includes medically supervised detox services. In essence, drugs are merely manufactured chemicals designed to block or enhance specific receptors in the brain, leading to changes in brain chemistry that cause a “high.”
But these changes in the brain also lead to addiction—your brain becomes accustomed to functioning with drugs, so your whole body struggles during withdrawal and detox. It’s vital to go through detox to “reset” your brain and help you learn to feel normal on your own again.
We provide medically monitored detox for patients who struggle with addiction to drugs, including:
- LSD (“Acid”)
- Psilocybin mushrooms (“Shrooms”)
- Cocaine and crack cocaine
- Prescription painkillers (Oxycodone, Fentanyl, Vicodin, Codeine, Morphine)
- Prescription stimulants (Adderall, Ritalin)
- Prescription tranquilizers (Xanax, Ambien, Valium)
- Methamphetamine (“Meth” or “Crystal Meth”)
Prescription Painkillers and Opiate Detox
Detox from painkillers and opiates such as oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, and heroin —are notorious for the dangers of withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms from these drugs can quickly become particularly painful, so it’s vital to get into medically monitored detox quickly.
Heroin withdrawal, for example, can peak within 36-72 hours after a patient’s last use. Many patients with addiction to these substances require medication during detox to safely wean clients off drugs.
Painkiller and opiate withdrawal symptoms may include:
- Muscle and bone pain
- Hot flashes and cold chills
- Involuntary leg movements
Conflicting information in the media often leads people to believe that marijuana isn’t addictive. But just like any substance that produces a high, you can become addicted to the feeling of using marijuana. With prolonged and continued use, patients will exhibit withdrawal symptoms if they go without the drug.
The detox process can vary significantly from patient to patient with marijuana detox. We take an initial assessment of physical and mental addiction to the drug and recommend the appropriate detox services.
Marijuana withdrawal symptoms may include:
- Restless behavior
- Increased levels of anxiety
- Digestion issues
- Intense cravings
