It's never too late, Break the Addiction

Detox Options

At Sprout Health Texas, we provide closely monitored detox processes to ensure it is safe and comfortable.

After assessing our patients and determining which treatment programs meet their individual and unique needs, Sprout Health Texas begins with the detoxification (detox) process; this is the hardest and most crucial step toward recovery. No one should attempt to detox by themselves; you could potentially shock your body and cause it to shut down. That is why, at Sprout Health Texas, we provide closely monitored detox processes to ensure it is safe and comfortable.

Detoxification Dangers

Detox is the removal of an addictive substance from our bodies. In order for detox to be safe, it must be performed either in a hospital setting or in a rehab facility, either way, it is closely monitored by medical professionals due to the possible withdrawal symptoms. Some of the symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Irritability
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Loss of appetite

Unfortunately, those with a severe addiction may experience life-threatening symptoms, such as:

  • Respiratory depression
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Fluid imbalances
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Schizophrenia
  • Delusions
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations

Most addicts do not want to deal with the withdrawal symptoms and continue to use their substance, which will only cause more problems and increase the risk of overdose and death. Sprout Health Texas understands that withdrawal symptoms are difficult to endure. We offer multiple options to accommodate each patient’s individual needs.

Detoxification Treatment Options

There are two categories of detox treatment: medically-managed (acute) and medically-assisted (sub-acute). Medically-managed detox is helpful for those with severe withdrawal symptoms which require close monitoring, while medically-assisted detox is less severe and can be done while receiving treatment.

  • Medically-managed, or acute, drug addiction detox treatments are equipped to handle moderate to severe addictions. Those who are at risk of life-threatening withdrawal symptoms are required to undergo this type of detox program. A doctor, along with an entire team of medically trained professionals, will carefully monitor the patient in a hospital type setting. Most inpatient treatments require the patient to remain at the hospital until the detoxification treatment is complete.
  • Medically-assisted, or sub-acute, drug addiction detox treatments are for patients whose addiction is less severe and do not pose a threat to their safety. This treatment is handled in a rehab facility, like Sprout Health Arizona, by facility personnel instead of medical professionals. These treatments can be completed either at a residential or outpatient program facility.

Sprout Health Texas also provides nutritional therapy as well as monitors mental well-being during the detox process. Addiction not only impairs the reward center of the brain, but it also causes a suppressed appetite and lack of necessary nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies are formed; therefore, the nutritional therapy is necessary to replenish vitality and repair the body’s cells.

Immediate Benefits of Alcohol Detox

Alcohol addiction causes many problems, including an electrolyte deficiency, which can lead to delirium tremens, hallucinations and depression. Along with an electrolyte deficiency, patients are subject to dangerously low levels of thiamine and folate.

Alcohol detox treatment must include nutritional-assisted detox in order to replenish the nutrients depleted from the alcohol addiction.

Detox treatment, whether it be nutritional, medically-assisted or medically-managed, is especially important for alcohol withdrawals because of the potential for lethal consequences.

What is Sub-Acute Detox?

Sub-acute detox treatments are recommended for patients who experience less severe cases of withdrawal symptoms. These treatments include nutritional and psychosocial support for those recovering with or without medications. Sprout Health Texas recommends medication-free detox for less severe cases because it allows the body to remove substances naturally. Sub-acute detox provides patients with support and monitoring without the need for intensive medical care or pharmacological/psychological interventions. We provide patients with therapists that meet with each patient wherever they are receiving detox treatment.

Close-Monitoring During the Detox Process

As mentioned before, no one should attempt to detox on their own due to potentially fatal consequences. It is a medical process that requires close monitoring by medical professionals. It is also uncomfortable and most times unbearable. Sprout Health Texas is capable of administering pain-easing medications if need be. We will also monitor our patient’s mental well-being with psychosocial support from our board-certified therapists as well as nutritional health by creating specialized diets to help replenish lost nutrients.

Following the completion of the detox process, patients will begin their treatment to immerse themselves in mind-altering and life-changing therapies.
