What is Drug Detoxification?
Detoxification is the process of allowing the body to get rid of harmful substances, often naturally or medically-assisted. Chronic abuse of alcohol and drugs have significant impact on one’s mental and physical functioning. Because the body has adapted to the consumption of these harmful substances, it seems to unable to function without drugs. A person experiencing withdrawal symptoms may experience, but might not be limited to, the following: aggression, depression, restlessness, apathy, loss of appetite for food, loss of interest for self-care, insomnia and restlessness. During the course of detoxification, these symptoms are also managed.
With the mind and body in good shape, you will be able to better understand and participate in the treatment process. You and your counselors can work more effectively to achieve your desired goals.
Medical detox depends upon a person’s drug abuse history, the type of substance being abused, age, and present medical condition. Detox is NOT a substitute for a full-course treatment. Detox services are mostly done at Notre Dame de Chartres Hospital, one of the most renowned hospitals in Baguio City. The hospital also caters to a wide array of medical cases.
During admission process, it is important to let us know about your health and addiction history. This will help us provide accurate advice and to formulate a personalized treatment plan for you.
