Choose the Right Drug Alcohol Detox Treatment

Detoxification, or the process of eliminating dangerous substances from the body, is the first step to treating addiction. In certain cases, detox can be very dangerous and even fatal if attempted at home. Medical detox is much safer and less painful when under the supervision of qualified medical professionals.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms

Not only is the experience of withdrawal a physical process but it is a mental one as well, which is why the experts at San Antonio Addiction Treatment are on hand 24/7 to provide the support needed to push through this difficult time. While every person responds to medical detox differently, many withdrawal symptoms appear in a vast majority of clients, with opiates and alcohol often causing the most severe and intense withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Disorientation
  • Increased heart rate and rapid breathing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea


Medical detox ranges in intensity from uncomfortable to downright painful, and is typically more mentally strenuous than physically. A main reason why professional detox is ideal for most clients is because medical professionals provide around the clock support and are equipped with medications to ease painful symptoms. While detox is an essential step on the road to recovery, it’s not the only step. Regardless of how difficult detox may be, continuing onto residential treatment will lead each client to a happier, more productive life, free from the chains of addiction.
