When one is taking any given drug or alcohol into his or her body, the body is bound to react in different ways which may bring about both mental effects and physiological adaptations by the body in the process. The administration of the drugs or alcohol stimulates reactions in the body that were formerly produced by other natural substances. And with time if these reactions continue, the body will begin to produce less of the natural substances and hence rely more and more on the alcohol or drugs. Because all of us have different metabolisms and different DNA, the amount of time before these changes occur varies widely and that brings us to the focus question on this article which is “why medical detox is necessary to addict.” Progressively once a person has become dependent or addicted, they will have withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking the drugs or alcohol in that regard, they are likely going to experience some mild to severe discomfort and pain when they attempt to stop taking the drug or drinking alcohol abruptly.
According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, it is possible that in some cases, the person can just stop abruptly and for sure when this happens, there is bound to be some level of pain and discomfort. However, in cases where someone is drinking alcohol or taking many types of prescription drugs, ceasing to take the drug or to just stop drinking alcohol can cause serious medical problems which can also be very life-threatening if not addressed in good time. Professionally doctor Akoury is registering that if a person is dependent or addicted to opioids like OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, oxycodone or methadone or to other opiates like heroin, the withdrawal may not be life-threatening, but nevertheless the available statistics gives a very painful pointers like for instance, the U.S. government has given their estimates to a shocking revelation that up to 95% of the people who try to stop taking these opioids on their own often fail to complete their withdrawal. Therefore to address the safety issue and the discomfort or pain issues of drug and alcohol withdrawal, many people are turning to medical detox facilities like AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. And doctor Akoury is saying that for instance internally we are currently receiving so many clients with different addiction problems daily coming for help which we are professionally delivering to them.

Detox is the short form for detoxification and it is the removing of toxins which are poisons or harmful things from the body which includes drugs and alcohol. Medical detox therefore means that the detoxification process is done professionally under the supervision of a qualified medical expert. However, the product of a successful medical detox is not the total elimination of all the toxins from the body or the elimination of any cravings for the drug or alcohol. The product of a successful medical detox is that the person, in a more comfortable way, no longer has any medical risks caused by no longer taking the drug or drinking alcohol. With this done the person will then be ready to go into a rehab facility and if he was just dependent then he can return to his life.
A medical detox should follow a proven detox protocol which is a detailed plan of a scientific or medical experiment, treatment, or procedure. The best medical protocols are not like a recipe for a cake. A good cake recipe can be followed exactly and should produce the same cake each time. But because all of us have different metabolisms, DNA and current health situations, unlike the cake recipe, a properly designed medical detox protocol is not followed exactly for each patient. Therefore a good medical detox protocol is a guide that contains alternative procedures if the patient reacts differently than other patients. A good medical detox protocol does not have one size fits all procedures, but instead it provides procedures to ensure that each patient is most comfortably and safely detoxed from the substances of abuse. Like for example says doctor Akoury, the standard medical protocol for an alcoholic utilizes a drug that is given to eliminate the seizure risk. Once the person is no longer a seizure risk, the person should be given less of the drug each day until they are no longer taking the drug. This is called a taper. Because of our DNA, metabolism and current health differences, some people will be able to taper off the drug faster than others. The speed of the taper should be adjusted for each person.
In addition, a person withdrawing from alcohol or an opioid is normally very dehydrated, and a good medical detox protocol will address this. They are normally vitamin and mineral depleted, and a good medical detox protocol will also address this. They may experience other withdrawal symptoms that will make their detox very uncomfortable if not handled.
An example of an outpatient detox is when a person sees a doctor in his office as a patient, and the doctor supervises their detox and prescribes any drugs that are needed. The person goes home and visits the doctor regularly during their detox. Because the person is not under medical care for 24 hours a day, the doctor must be very cautious, thus the detox can take many weeks or even months. Unfortunately, it is often the case that the person will have some uncomfortable sensations and not complete the withdrawal. In other cases, a person can become dependent or addicted to the drugs used to assist the person’s detox and they have gone from a problem with one substance to a problem with another.
Patients check into inpatient medical detox facilities and stay in the facility until they complete their detox. Even though some facilities bill themselves as medical detox facilities but only provide lodging it is important to note that a medical detox facility, must ensure that all clients under inpatient solution be put under medical supervision for 24 hours daily for the period of treatment. The patient must be given medical drugs or natural products to assist in their withdrawal. The good news here is that because the patient is under the care of medical personnel around the clock, the detox can go much faster and it is normal for people to complete their withdrawal from alcohol or other drugs in just a fortnight.
