Seattle Drug Detox Program
Nationally-Trusted Drug Detoxification
Drug detoxification is the process of administering medical care to patients undergoing addiction withdrawal symptoms. Drug withdrawal can encompass a variety of symptoms, both emotional and physical. These range from discomfort to symptoms that are potentially life-threatening, which is why it’s important to detox with the help of trained medical professionals.
Drug addiction suppresses certain chemicals in the brain. Drugs that act as depressants, for example, cause the body to suppress its own production of adrenaline. Suddenly removing addictive substances from the equation causes the body to overproduce in compensation for weeks’ or even years’ worth of consuming addictive substances. Detoxification from opiates or prescription painkillers is particularly dangerous without the aid of trained medical professionals.
Schick Shadel’s Drug Addiction Rehab & Treatment Center provides patients with a safe, comfortable transition through the addiction withdrawal period. Physicians certified in addiction medicine direct the detox team, while experienced, registered nurses provide compassionate and supportive care for patients.
