What Is Drug Detox?
When a teen decides to get sober, they must go through the process of detoxification, also known as “detox.” The body can detox from drugs naturally, however because addiction rewires the brain’s pleasure center, it can be difficult for teens to detox and get sober on their own. When they attempt to do so, they may feel physically ill, psychologically distressed or both in a process called withdrawal. Detox programs are run through hospitals or rehab facilities and often use medication to ease the process.
Some symptoms of withdrawal include:
- Jerking muscles
- Watery eyes
What Is Teen Drug Detox Like?
Detoxing from drugs is typically the first step in drug rehab. Detox can take place at a detox center, hospital or in a rehab facility, such as Next Generation Village.
Typically detox programs use a combination of techniques, including:
- Medically supervised detox that involves conventional medications, like antidepressants or sleeping aids
- Soothing environments, including cool rooms for sleeping
- Massage, acupuncture, or other alternative therapies
- Talk therapy and drug education
