Detox

CrossRoads Las Vegas Rehab offers a medically assisted detox program designed to provide the life-changing services necessary for long-term recovery from drug & alcohol addiction treatment in Southern Nevada.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DETOX FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE

At CrossRoads of Southern Nevada Las Vegas Rehab in Southern Nevada, we recognize how difficult it can be to take the first step towards sobriety. In many cases, the most intimidating aspect of ceasing one’s use of drugs or alcohol is the knowledge that, upon doing so, one will have to suffer through the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal. In order to eliminate these distressing symptoms, and encourage individuals to begin their recovery journeys in a safe and healthy manner, we, at CrossRoads, are pleased to offer medically monitored detoxification services.

Detoxification, or detox, refers to the process of having substances of abuse safely removed from an individual’s system. At CrossRoads, we offer a detox program in an environment that offers safety and stability while also incorporating medical interventions that are designed to make the process as comfortable as it can be. The symptoms that typically accompany the withdrawal process are reduced, making the beginning of recovery one that is placed within reach.

While engaged in detox, individuals can benefit from being monitored around-the-clock by detox providers and trained support staff who ensure that their safety and comfort remains at the forefront of the care provided. Furthermore, individuals who are receiving detox also obtain ongoing support from addiction treatment professionals who offer encouragement as the beginning steps to recovery are navigated.

Once the detoxification process is complete, and all substances of abuse have been cleared from an individual’s system, he or she can then seamlessly transition into the therapeutic aspect of programming that we offer here at CrossRoads.This will be discussed with each individual along with all services that CrossRoads offers for a continuum of care. The individual can also speak with the case management team about alternative programs the best fit them based on qualification for these alternatives.

If you or someone you love is in need of detoxification services in order to safely put an end to the abuse of drugs and/or alcohol, please do hesitate to seek out care via the detoxification track at CrossRoads of Southern Nevada Las Vegas Rehab.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR DRUG & ALCOHOL DETOX PROGRAM

HOW MUCH DOES DETOX COST?

Out of pocket costs will vary depending on whether or not you use insurance or pay privately. Prescription medications, and ancillary services like laboratory costs, when necessary, are separate.

HOW LONG DOES DETOX LAST?

The length of detox will vary depending on, for example, what drug you are addicted to and how long the addiction has lasted. Most withdrawal symptoms will resolve within a week, although milder effects may linger for a few more days. Typically, standard detox is 3 to 7 days with medical and clinical clearance along with a confirmed safe disposition.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED AN ALCOHOL OR DRUG DETOX PROGRAM?

The detox process is about safety. The drugs you have been using are dangerous, but the withdrawal process can be equally dangerous without medical intervention. Our detox providers and trained support staff will do everything possible to provide some comfort while you are going through withdrawal, keeping in mind that safety is the primary goal. Coming down from any drug of abuse is an uncomfortable process. We cannot promise you will be symptom-free, but we can help you have a safe detox process, and we can promise we will be there for you as you go through the discomfort. We can also promise the discomfort will not last forever, and as long as you follow the directions of your treatment team, you will not have to go through the detox process multiple times. You will be much better off detoxing and breaking the cycle of addition with the support of the treatment team, than risking the alternative.

Although medical stabilization is an important part of the recovery process, we recognize that detox is not necessary for everyone. However, we strongly recommend medically-supervised detox if you

  • Experience withdrawal symptoms
  • Consume large amounts of alcohol (e.g. anything over a 12 pack of beer or pint of liquor per day)
  • Drink or use every day and have been for years
  • Take benzodiazepines (e.g. Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan), especially if taken alongside alcohol
  • Shake, tremble or convulse (If this happens, it is life-threatening; seek immediate care.)
  • Inject drugs
  • Have other health problems
  • Are severely depressed
  • Have self-destructive thoughts or a history of suicide attempts
  • Have tried unsuccessfully to detox on your own

If you’re unsure, it’s better to err on the safe side because detoxing from alcohol can be fatal.

CAN I DETOX AT HOME?

Yes, but detoxing at home can be dangerous. You cannot predict what is going to happen, and the misery of withdrawal only heightens the desire to drink or use.

If however, you do plan to detox at home, talk to a doctor with experience in addiction and withdrawal. Also, make sure that someone is with you around-the-clock to watch for and respond to life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. We encourage you to call us to get professional help. Don’t endanger yourself or a loved one!

Thank you for choosing your health over your addiction. Call Southern Nevada’s premier drug & alcohol detox program, CrossRoads of Southern Nevada Las Vegas Rehab for support. We are here to help!

  4. Drinking in secret: Hiding alcohol or drinking in secret to avoid criticism.
  5. Neglecting responsibilities: Prioritizing drinking over work, school, or other obligations.
  6. Continual drinking despite negative consequences: Continued drinking even when it causes problems with relationships, finances, or health.
  7. Preoccupation with drinking: Constantly thinking about alcohol and when the next drink will be consumed.
  8. Increased isolation: Spending more time alone or withdrawing from friends and family to drink.
  9. Drinking to cope with emotions: Using alcohol to deal with stress, anxiety, or depression.

If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, seeking professional help and support from loved ones can be beneficial in managing alcohol addiction.

  • If you or someone you know is struggling with a benzodiazepine addiction, it’s important to seek help from a medical professional as soon as possible. Benzodiazepines, also known as “benzos,” are a class of medications commonly used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and other conditions, but they can be highly addictive and can lead to serious health problems if not used as prescribed.Some common signs of benzodiazepine addiction include:
    • Taking larger doses of the medication than prescribed or using it more frequently than recommended
    • Difficulty reducing or stopping use of the medication despite wanting to do so
    • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop using the medication
    • Using the medication to cope with emotional or psychological stress
    • Neglecting responsibilities or relationships due to drug use

    If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek help from a medical professional. Benzodiazepine addiction is treatable, but it’s important to address the problem early in order to prevent long-term health consequences. Treatment options may include medication-assisted therapy, behavioral therapy, and support groups.

Cocaine addiction is a complex and serious condition that can have a significant impact on a person’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. Treatment for cocaine addiction often involves a combination of behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and support from family and friends.

Here are some potential ways to help individuals with cocaine addiction:

  1. Encourage them to seek professional help: Encourage the individual to seek professional help from a healthcare provider or a substance abuse treatment program. These professionals can provide comprehensive care, including counseling, medications, and support groups.
  2. Provide emotional support: Individuals with cocaine addiction may feel ashamed or embarrassed about their addiction. Providing emotional support and encouragement can help them feel less isolated and more motivated to seek help.
  3. Offer practical support: Offer practical support such as transportation to and from appointments, help with household chores, or even just spending time with them to help them feel supported and cared for.
  4. Avoid enabling behaviors: Enabling behaviors such as giving them money, covering up their addiction, or making excuses for their behavior can hinder their recovery. It’s important to set clear boundaries and encourage them to take responsibility for their actions.
  5. Educate yourself: Educating yourself about cocaine addiction can help you understand the condition and provide better support to your loved one. Learn about the signs and symptoms of addiction, treatment options, and support resources.

Remember, recovery from cocaine addiction is a long-term process that requires patience, persistence, and a supportive network.

Fentanyl addiction can be a very serious and potentially life-threatening condition, as Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid that can lead to respiratory depression and overdose. If you or someone you know is struggling with Fentanyl addiction, it is important to seek professional help.

Here are some steps you can take to address Fentanyl addiction:

  1. Seek medical attention: Fentanyl addiction requires professional treatment, and the first step is to seek medical attention. A doctor can help manage withdrawal symptoms and provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help ease cravings.
  2. Consider therapy: Therapy can be an essential part of recovery, as it can help individuals identify the underlying causes of addiction and develop coping strategies to avoid relapse. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), for example, can help individuals change negative thought patterns and develop healthy habits.
  3. Join a support group: Support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals struggling with addiction. These groups can help individuals feel less alone in their recovery journey and provide a sense of community.
  4. Make lifestyle changes: Making healthy lifestyle changes can also support recovery. This might include adopting a healthy diet, engaging in regular exercise, and avoiding triggers that may lead to drug use.

Remember, recovery from Fentanyl addiction is a journey, and it may not be easy. However, with the right support and resources, it is possible to overcome addiction and live a fulfilling life in recovery.

Heroin addiction is a serious and complex condition that affects individuals physically, psychologically, and socially. It is a chronic disease that requires long-term treatment and support.

Some common signs and symptoms of heroin addiction include:

 

  • Increased tolerance: Individuals with heroin addiction require increasing amounts of the drug to achieve the desired effects.
  • Withdrawal symptoms: When an individual with heroin addiction stops using the drug, they may experience physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and insomnia.
  • Continued use despite negative consequences: Individuals with heroin addiction may continue to use the drug despite experiencing negative consequences, such as relationship problems, financial difficulties, or legal issues.
  • Craving: Individuals with heroin addiction may experience intense cravings for the drug, making it difficult to stop using it.

Treatment for heroin addiction typically involves a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and behavioral therapy. MAT involves the use of medications such as methadone or buprenorphine to manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. Behavioral therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and contingency management, can help individuals develop coping strategies and address the underlying causes of their addiction.

It’s important to note that recovery from heroin addiction is a lifelong process, and relapse is a common part of the journey. However, with the right treatment and support, individuals with heroin addiction can manage their condition and lead fulfilling lives in recovery.

MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception. It is commonly known as ecstasy or molly and is often used recreationally for its euphoric effects. However, repeated use of MDMA can lead to addiction, and individuals who develop an addiction to MDMA may experience a range of negative physical and psychological consequences.

Treatment for MDMA addiction typically involves a combination of behavioral therapy and medication-assisted therapy. Behavioral therapy can help individuals identify and change the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their addiction. Medications such as antidepressants may be prescribed to help with withdrawal symptoms and to treat underlying mood disorders that may have contributed to the addiction.

Support groups, such as 12-step programs, can also be helpful in providing ongoing support and guidance for individuals in recovery from MDMA addiction. It’s important to seek professional help if you or someone you know is struggling with MDMA addiction, as it can be a serious and potentially life-threatening condition if left untreated.
