What Is the First Step for Treating Addiction?

The initial step needed to start addressing addiction is detoxification. Detoxification from addiction is a process of gradually reducing and eliminating substance use, allowing the body time to adjust both mentally and physically.

What Should I Expect During Detoxification From Addiction?

Detoxification usually begins with withdrawal, which can involve uncomfortable physical and psychological symptoms such as:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability

During detoxification, your doctor may prescribe certain medications to help ease these symptoms and make the process more comfortable. After the withdrawal has been successfully managed, your doctor at Sana Behavioral Health of Las Vegas, NV, may also provide counseling sessions and therapy to help you address the emotional aspects of your addiction and provide you with strategies for avoiding relapse in the future. The duration of detoxification from addiction varies depending on how long an individual has been using substances and any co-occurring health concerns that may be working against them. This can be discussed upon admittance into our addiction programs.
