Understanding the Importance of Detox
Detox is a process that is not safe to do alone. We always recommend clients come to us to remove toxins from their bodies because trying to do so at home is dangerous. It is unexpected, and no two detoxes are identical. Each addiction is unique, which means the way the body is going to process withdrawals uniquely as well.
Many people struggle with the detox process because it can be so unpredictable, even deadly. Thankfully, modern medicine has ways of being able to manage many of the withdrawal symptoms that clients experience during this process. However, until the process begins, no one knows how it will progress. While some people are simply tired and feel exhausted, others have far more elusive symptoms. This can include rapid changes in heart rate, breathing rates, and blood pressure. Without being monitored by a licensed professional, these symptoms could be missed if someone were trying to detox outside of an IMS-licensed treatment facility.
Here at La Ventana, we take the time to keep you monitored regularly. We want to know where your heart rate is at, how your body feels, and anything else you are going through. Our experienced staff knows what to watch for and will closely monitor every symptom they notice. Plus, they have also helped other clients in similar situations. This means they can offer tips that could help you sleep, eat, or keep your mind busy during this phase of your recovery.
