Proper Detoxification

The Detoxification process from alcohol or opiates can be very dangerous if not properly done. Self-detoxification may not be very effective and it can also be very dangerous –it can even be potentially fatal without professional supervision. At Soul Sanctuary, we do not recommend self-detoxification unless it is an absolute must.

With professional help for the detoxification process, patients are closely monitored by nurses and physicians and can be prescribed well-researched medications to help with the withdrawal symptoms. In addition, professional detoxification help is about the long-term commitment to recovery and it is their goal to help you be successful!

Here is a list of common detoxifications by substance:

Alcohol Detoxification

detoxification The alcohol detoxification process is the most potentially dangerous if not properly supervised. Going “cold turkey” with alcohol detoxification can result in alcohol withdrawal syndrome, which can cause hallucinations, seizures, and even death. This is why professional-monitored alcohol detoxification is so important and why we do not recommend trying this at home.

Here is a list of some common symptoms during the detoxification process from alcohol:

• Anxiety
• Convulsions
• Delirium tremens
• Hallucinations
• Heart failure
• Insomnia
• Nausea
• Seizures
• Shakiness

At Soul Sanctuary, our alcohol detox process will ensure the proper treatment and professional care to get you healthy and on the road to your recovery!

• Anxiety
