Find Detox Centers by Cities of New Mexico
New Mexico offers options for those seeking help with drug or alcohol addiction. Detox, or detoxification, is the process of removing foreign substance from the body. The body has many natural ways of doing this; sweating, for instance, is a natural way the body releases toxins. Because alcohol and drugs are a chemical dependence, coming down from these substances can often times be extremely difficult and uncomfortable for an individual. Rapid brain chemistry changes happen during this time, as the brain and body slowly start to realize the substance is no longer there and mental and chemical changes begin to take place. Statistically speaking, those who attend a detox center have a much better chance of being successful than those who simply use willpower alone. It can be done with willpower, but some individuals are so deep into their addiction that it becomes virtually impossible.
New Mexico Detox Centers are a great way for someone struggling with substance addiction get a medically assisted “come down” for whatever substance they are addicted to. The rapid body/brain chemical changes that take place can be extremely difficult to the user, so detox professionals provide interim medication that effectively “replaces” the drug and also calms cravings. Detox performed in this way provides a much greater of change of successful detox than self made attempts.
New Mexico Detox Centers come in all varieties. For more extreme cases, there is the long term “inpatient” detox treatment. This type of detox can last up to 8 months and the individual lives on the detox center’s premises and receives daily treatment. For less extreme cases, outpatient treatment can be an effective tool. Outpatient treatment offers the same high quality treatment of an inpatient center, however; the patient generally will not live at the detox center. Patients live at home and attend services daily in this type of environment.
For those who struggle with opiate addiction or Oxycontin addiction, there is a new option that makes withdrawal much easier for the addict. The new “rapid detox” method is a lightning quick detox for specific substance addictions. During rapid detox, the patient is administered medication under general anesthesia that quickly and completely detoxes the patients body. This method is so appealing because it effectively cleans the patients body in a matter of hours, not days or weeks, and is completely pain free.
