Luxury Drug & Alcohol Detox
What is the Disease of Addiction?
how drug addiction happens.
Addiction happens when consistent consumption turns into physical and mental dependence. When someone is completely unable to control their habit, even when attempting to stop, they have become addicted. Even some seemingly harmless substances, when used in excess, can lead to dangerous consequences. It’s common to hear addicts discuss how they were constantly chasing the feeling they got from their first high but never reaching their goal. The high has become normalized, and therefore, they have to consistently use more quantities of the drug in order to flood the brain with the number of endorphins necessary to achieve feelings of euphoria.
This obsession leads to a reliance on drugs to continuously feel “normal,” since the new normal in an addict’s brain is on drugs. Due to the psychological and physical dependence caused as a result of drug and alcohol abuse, individuals that are addicted will do anything to acquire the substance they believe they need. Once a person is addicted, it can often progress into a severe enough situation that an intervention of some sort is necessary to motivate them into getting the help they need.
When you make the decision to get help for a drug or alcohol problem, detox is almost always the first step in the recovery process, depending upon your drug of choice. Keep reading to learn more about withdrawal symptoms, why detox is a necessary component of the recovery process, and how Ritz Point Recovery can help with our luxury detox program in Orange County.
What Exactly are Withdrawal Symptoms? Why is Detox Recommended?
Withdrawal occurs when a person stops taking a substance that they have become physically dependent upon. Although the symptoms can vary from substance to substance, general withdrawal symptoms often include:
- Dizziness and/or lightheadedness;
- Chest tightness or difficulty breathing;
- Heart palpitations or a racing heart;
- Nausea and/or vomiting;
- Constipation or diarrhea;
Typically, if withdrawal symptoms have begun outside of a detox environment, that is the ideal time for an individual to seek treatment. Here at Ritz Point Recovery, we aim to treat the withdrawal symptoms immediately. Our goal is to avoid the dangerous side effects and symptoms that withdrawals can produce without the appropriate care and oversight.
Detoxification allows us to rid your body of the toxins and harmful chemicals that have settled due to the prolonged use of drugs. The process typically begins with an initial physical assessment of the current withdrawal symptoms that have begun, followed by an analysis of your medical history, including any prior treatment for addiction, and an evaluation of your history of drug and/or alcohol abuse. When you enter our luxury detox program in Orange County, you can expect for the initial detox period to take anywhere from 4-14 days, depending on a few variables; such as, the drug of choice, length of use, and the quantity used.
