YOUR PATH TO RECOVERY STARTS WITH MEDICAL DETOX
At Kelburn we use medically assisted detox (MAT) as part of our 42 day treatment to help to alleviate the discomfort associated with withdrawal symptoms, which can include anxiety, depression, seizures, and more. This approach allows people to safely and comfortably detox from drugs and alcohol while being monitored by medical professionals, which increases the likelihood of a successful recovery.
During MAT, the patient’s vital signs and symptoms are monitored 24/7 and if necessary, medications are administered to manage specific withdrawal symptoms, such as benzodiazepines for anxiety, or methadone for opioid withdrawal. Seizures and delirium tremens (DTs) are two serious conditions that can occur during alcohol withdrawal, which can be fatal if left untreated. Medications can be used to prevent or manage these complications, making the detox process safer for individuals.
Medically assisted detox is an important step in the recovery process because it helps to set individuals up for success in their long-term recovery. Once the detox process is complete, individuals can begin to focus on addressing the underlying issues that led to their substance use, such as trauma, mental health disorders, or relationship problems.
