Addiction treatment and cleaning the body from drugs

In addiction treatment, it is important to clean the body from the leftovers of drugs and alcohol. Early detection and immediate treatment make recovery easier for the patient. In addition to that, it is necessary to clean the body especially for patients who have severe addiction as they are given some medications that help them recover and which may have its side effects.

The first examination should consist of objective survey tools, laboratory assessment and interview. If addiction is diagnosed in initial evaluation, further detailed analysis is required. 

Treatment in the Addiction Clinic is made on the basis of a special treatment program that is made for each patient

In addition, we should know the substance consumed as well as its psychological and physical impacts and we should also know that addiction, like any other chronic disease, will not heal quickly.

In addiction treatment, the Word change means the patient’s ability to control the crave , carry on his life in the normal way, the ability to face negative emotions without escaping to drugs or alcohol and also the ability to handle stress and negative emotions.

Stages that the addict goes through

Like other chronic diseases, addiction can not be fully healed that is why the terms of treatment, change or evaluation are better to be used at the place of the term recovery.

The Word change here means the person having stopped doing drugs and been able to control crave. Inorder to carry on his life, the addict should face his problems without depending on drugs and alcohol, and he should also develop his abilities to deal with stress and negative emotions.
