Our Indianapolis drug and alcohol detox facility specializes in detox treatments for Indianapolis residents who are physically dependent on alcohol, opioids, crack, cocaine, benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, and Suboxone.
Medication-assisted detox is the first stage of treatment for those who are physically dependent on drugs and alcohol. This treatment manages and reduces the physical symptoms of withdrawal, including nausea, headaches, and muscle pain. Medications get used to treat symptoms and reduce the risk of potential withdrawal-related complications such as seizures and dehydration.
Indianapolis Alcohol Detox
Alcohol detox in Indianapolis is essential for all patients recovering from alcohol dependence, given how quitting alcohol cold turkey can be life-threatening and lead to seizures, hallucinations, and delirium. Trained to recognize and anticipate symptoms, our staff treats them right away before they progress. Medications get used to stabilize patients, reduce the risk of seizures, and help patients feel more comfortable recovering from alcohol dependence. Medications may also reduce strong cravings for alcohol.
Indianapolis Opioid Detox
Opioid detox is another standard treatment for Indianapolis patients who travel to our Indianapolis Drug and Alcohol detox facility, given the city’s high rates of opioid addiction. Opioid detox treats physical dependence on heroin and all prescription opioids, including oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, and fentanyl. Symptoms of opioid withdrawal usually aren’t life-threatening—though symptoms like insomnia and drug cravings can often get severe to the point they influence patients to relapse—increasing the risk of an overdose. Medications are used in opioid detox to reduce or eliminate all withdrawal symptoms to keep patients safe and comfortable.
Indianapolis Benzodiazepine Detox
Benzodiazepine detox usually lasts longer than other drug detox treatments, given how it involves placing patients on a tapering schedule. Quitting benzodiazepines cold turkey is often just as dangerous as quitting alcohol cold turkey and can lead to life-threatening seizures without professional treatment. During benzodiazepine detox, doctors work closely with patients to gradually reduce their dosages of benzodiazepines until their symptoms minimize greatly or get eliminated.
Suboxone detox treatments are highly similar to benzodiazepine detox treatments, given how they involve placing patients on a tapering schedule. Doctors work with patients to reduce their Suboxone dosages gradually over time until they are longer dependent on the medication or experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Drug detox for stimulants including crack/cocaine and methamphetamine usually focuses on minimizing withdrawal symptoms that cause pain or psychological distress. Stimulant withdrawal symptoms vary from one patient to the next based on factors including the type of stimulant used, its strength and purity, and the patient’s overall health status. Medications control and reduce certain symptoms—including antipsychotic medications for those who experience psychosis, severe agitation, and extreme paranoia.
