Detox Services

Genesis Medical Detox is a Nashville detox program for the treatment of drug and/or alcohol abuse. Our drug and alcohol detox programs Taft TN offer a comprehensive treatment program that will take you through each step of your detoxification. We assure you, our Detox Pulaski program does not just put you into a room and leave you for several days to weather the terrible storm of withdrawals that can come with any substance abuse. Instead, each individual will have a detoxification program designed specifically for their needs with our Drug Detox Nashville and Alcohol Detox Nashville specialists.

Opiate Detox Program

This is one of the most common forms of drug addiction. Our Drug Detox Pulaski centre can help. Within the category of opiates are many subcategories specific to the type of drug being used. These include:

  • Demerol (Meperidine)
  • Codine
  • Fentanyl
  • Heroin
  • Oxycodone
  • Hydrocodone
  • Buprenorphine
  • Methadone

More can be added to the list, ultimately coming down to include any opium-derived drugs. Our Drug Detox Pulaski center can address each of these symptoms so that individuals can cope with them.

The Detoxification Process

The body is used to getting a certain amount of these opiates daily. Through experience, the knowledgeable Detox Pulaski staff understands this. When the body is deprived of them, it will show it through withdrawal symptoms that can include:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Increase in the output of body fluids such as mucus, tears, and sweating
  • The body may feel achy
  • Mentally the individual will feel anxious and agitated
  • As the body continues to be deprived of the drug, additional withdrawals may occur, such as:
  • Loose stools
  • Stomach pains
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pupils of the eyes may become dilated
  • The individual will likely have a strong urge to consume the drugs the body is craving

It is for these important reasons that going “cold turkey” is not recommended. Proper medical detoxification like that being offered here at Genesis Medical Detox with our drug and alcohol detox programs Taft TN can address each of these symptoms. This allows the individual to cope with them much better.

Once the opiates are out of the system, which our Nashville Detox program is designed to do, then withdrawals subside. It is then recommended that the individual move into the next phase of their recovery.

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction is every bit as serious as any type of drug addiction. In fact, non-medical detoxification for alcoholics could cost them their lives. This is not something they can do on their own. Our Alcohol Detox Nashville program at Genesis Medical Detox has a very intense detox program in place. One that will allow those addicted to alcohol to get to the point safely where they can carry on with the next phase of their recovery after leaving the Alcohol Detox Nashville program. Some of the common withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Lack of energy
  • Mood swings that happen quickly
  • Feeling irritable
  • Clouded thinking
  • Disturbing dreams
  • Depression or anxiousness
  • Headaches
  • No appetite
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Tremors
  • Not able to sleep
  • Dilated pupils
  • Pale and clammy skin
  • Nausea that leads to vomiting
  • Profuse sweating
  • Seizures and convulsions

Some of these symptoms are attributed to the DTs, which stands for delirium tremens. This can be potentially life-threatening. Proper medical supervision like that being offered here at our drug and alcohol detox programs Taft TN can address each of these symptoms.

Benzodiazepine Addiction Detoxification

Detoxing from benzos is also something that must be done in a medical setting, like that of our Drug Detox Nashville center, otherwise, the outcome can be fatal. Some of the symptoms for the withdrawal of benzodiazepines include:

  • Headaches
  • Panic attacks
  • Profuse sweating
  • Nausea
  • Not able to sleep
  • Seizures
  • Irritableness

Throughout the detoxification process at Genesis Medical Detox, individuals will have their vitals closely monitored. Medications will be used as necessary to control the withdrawals as needed at our Detox Pulaski based center.

In addition to medications, several other of our Nashville Detox treatments prove valuable during the detox process. There are treatments that may be used as each individual progresses through withdrawals at the drug detox Nashville program we supervise. These include things such meditation and guided imagery, for example. But most important treatment of all here among our offerings is the specialized care, and the walking of each individual through every moment of their detox Pulaski based recovery. This is what individuals can count on at Genesis Medical Detox in southern Tennessee. Individuals need to know that they are in a safe and secure detox environment run by medical professionals that will address each of their needs. Our drug detox Pulaski program keeps them as comfortable as possible through each segment of this phase of a drug and/or alcohol abuse recovery program.
