Atavan detox can be defined as the process of going through a medically supervised withdrawal in which the end result is that all traces of the atavan are removed from your body. This process may include a gradual decrease in your intake of atavan or stopping your atavan intake suddenly. A medically supervised withdrawal refers to you being under medical care as you go through atavan detox to minimize the withdrawal symptoms. While this definition may seem straight from the book, it is crucial that you understand exactly what atavan detox is not so much that you will be more comfortable with the process, but rather so the detox process will be less intimidating. Having knowledge about your rehabilitation process gives you the power to be more accepting of the process while making you more capable of handling it.
Detoxing Doesn't Have to be Painful
It is only logical that you would think that your atavan detox would be painful, because this is how the many forms of media portray it. It is true, however, that you will experience discomfort, but your detox does not have to be as painful as you might think. The only time that your atavan detox might be extremely painful is if you tried to withdraw on your own, without the help of rehabilitation center. This is true because you are not capable of handling this type of process on your own and you may even relapse as soon as the withdrawal symptoms become too much for you to handle. However, with professional help, not only will some of the physical symptoms of your atavan detox be less stressful but your emotional stress will be lessened as well.
Understanding the Need to Detox
Now that you understand that you atavan detox does not have to be as painful as you would think, it is important that you understand your urgent need for detox. As your drug addiction grew, so did your tolerance for atavan. This means that you consistently needed higher doses to get that original, sedated feeling. This puts you at a risk for an overdose because you may be abusing this anti-anxiety if you were not able to be prescribed higher doses. On the other hand, you may be using atavan as a “supplemental” drug for heroin or cocaine when these drugs are not available so you would not feel withdrawal symptoms. This still puts you at risk for an overdose because you may be using more than one drug with the atavan or not waiting for the drug to “kick in” before you took more. The urgent need you have for atavan detox is that you are at risk for an overdose, which is characterized by depressed breathing, falling into one of the three stages of a coma, loss of consciousness, extreme confusion, death, etc. Essentially, you need atavan detox because you are slowly killing yourself and are at risk for harming those around you, especially if you drive while under the influence of this drug.
The Dangers of Detox Without Therapy
As you may already know by now, atavan detox does not mean you have reached sobriety because without further, mental treatment, your addiction has not been healed. If anything, without therapy, your detox can actually mean danger; especially, if you have gone through an outpatient atavan detox program. What this means is that because your body has been cleansed of all the atavan, your body cannot tolerate as much of the anti-anxiety drug as it did before. Therefore, without mental healing, you might relapse and use atavan again. The danger is, you might take the high dosage you were used to before your atavan detox, which means that you are at an extremely high risk of overdosing.
At Cliffside Malibu, you will receive any drug abuse treatment that you need to address every aspect of your atava person with substance use disorderion while being offered programs to promote your overall well-being. Between atavan detox, group therapies, holistic treatments (massages, acupuncture, equine therapy) you will be able to relax while proceeding to overcome your mental and physical addiction to atavan.
Proper Detox Therapy
Believe it or not, you can have the hope of healing because a proper atavan detox treatment plan can mean lasting sobriety. You must understand that an atavan detox treatment plan includes more than just controlled withdrawal; it also means intensive, individualized psychotherapy. At Cliffside Malibu, this is the only thing you will receive, a full, individualized treatment plan that begins with atavan detox and ends with some type of aftercare.
