At Navis Health, we treat alcohol and a variety of drugs in a safe and medically supported manner. We believe in treating the whole person, so we also address co-occurring mental health disorders and trauma in addition to the addiction. Our gender specific detox & residential programs are tailored for adults and their families to help everyone get to a healthier place.
We recognize the importance of gender specific programming; the need to treat men and women discreetly. We adhere to the research showing the fundamental biological and cultural differences between women and men. We also recognize that women and men struggle with substance use disorders for different reasons. The benefit of this approach is that both genders can be more honest, which allows for open communication.
Our highly trained medical team are experts in implementing appropriate medical protocols for a variety of substances. After a proper medical assessment upon admission, we will tailor a treatment program to your specific needs and ensure that you have as comfortable a detox as possible.
Residential addiction treatment is the initial step-down from medical detox. While detox focuses on the body’s physical dependence on drugs or alcohol, our residential treatment program goes one step further. Our inpatient program is designed to look at addiction as a problem with many parts and find solutions for each of them so that long-term sobriety can be achieved.
We offer treatment for people who struggle with addiction to substances such as:
- Other Prescription Drugs
Managing Acute Withdrawal Symptoms with Medical Detox
Prolonged abuse of alcohol and drugs leads to significant changes in your mind and body. Your brain adapts to the presence of these substances and compensates by altering the delicate balance of neurotransmitters – your brain’s internal messaging system – related to pleasure, pain, reward, and mood.
At the same time, your internal organs work overtime to process the toxic chemicals and your musculoskeletal system responds to the changes in your brain chemistry, sending your entire system out of balance. Over time your body creates a new normal, dominated by the presence of your drug of choice.
When you detox and remove the substance from your system, you enter a state of physical and psychological withdrawal. Depending on how much and how long you’ve been using, the acute stages of withdrawal can last anywhere from three to ten days. Symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs of use can include:
- Delirium Tremens (alcohol only)
- Panic Attacks
- Muscle Aches
- Bone/Joint Pain
Managing these symptoms is a crucial first step in recovery. Without professional treatment most people have difficulty handling the uncomfortable physical and emotional aspects of withdrawal, which leads to high rates of relapse. In some extreme cases, people trying to detox without adequate medical supervision end up in the emergency room with life-threatening medical conditions.
