Factors to Consider When Developing a Personalized Opioid Dependency Treatment Program
To properly assess an individual with opioid dependency it’s important to know how they became addicted. Was it through pharmaceutical drugs containing Fentanyl? Did their prescription run out, so they went to the street to get ahold of illegal drugs to suffice during excruciating and tormenting times of withdrawal? How much did they take and how long did they take it? What else did they take?
If Do-It-Yourself Alcohol Detox Won’t Work and Isn’t Safe – What Can I Do?
If you want to quit and do it without further damaging your health, you’ll need some professional medical help. Yes, you’ll still need family support, and yes, you’ll still need to change your lifestyle and various hobbies, perhaps some friends too. Yes, even after you are over the withdrawal symptoms and done with rehab, you’ll still need to join a local AA group and stick with it (cite 1).
The Challenges of Do-It-Yourself Alcohol Detoxification
Face it, if you are dependent on alcohol, quitting is going to be hell. Of course, what do they say; “if you have to go through hell, don’t stop, keep going.” Yes, it’s a New Year, so perhaps one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to stop drinking, or maybe you just want to cut back substantially. If you are already an alcoholic, you know you are going to have to quit completely. You are probably wondering if that is even possible?
Professional Detox Centers and Safe Alcohol Detox Programs
The reality is that one in three visits to a hospital emergency room is related to alcohol consumption. Did you know that one in ten deaths among working-age adults was due to alcohol consumption? These are some serious statistics (cite: 1). If you or a loved one has a severe dependency on alcohol, it’s wise to play it safe. Alcohol has caused enough problems in your life. There is no reason to do anything fool-hardy when it comes to ending your alcohol dependency.
Safe Alcohol Detox
Is it possible to do a safe alcohol detox on your own at home? Well, generally speaking, with mild alcohol dependency a very strong-willed person can safely detoxify themselves at home. It’s not easy but it can be done, and it can be done safely. There are many online videos and books you can buy which talk about the 30-Day Challenge – that is to say, going for 30-days without taking a drink. Easier said than done, and if it is really easy for you, you may not have an alcohol dependency problem. If you do, it’s a real struggle even for those in the beginning stages of dependency.
