Choosing Right Plan
Need Help Finding the Right Program(s)?
MEDICATION ( Alcohol and Drug Detox ) UMEED Treatment Centers provide supervised alcohol and drug detox by working with licensed, independent affiliates who provide close supervision and monitoring to ensure the comfort and safety of clients withdrawing from drugs or alcohol for our alcohol and drug rehab programs. Not very often, clients may need the additional medical support available at a hospital. If this occurs, UMEED will help make the necessary arrangements to ensure a seamless transition from our facility, to a nearby medical center.
One of the difficulties in selecting the right detox program is sorting through all the information and detoxification methods, such as 'rapid opiate detox', 'slow and methodical detox', 'medically assisted detox', and others, which are often touted as 'the best technique' for withdrawing from alcohol and drugs (detoxification).
At UMEED CLINIC, we make finding the right alcohol and/or drug detox process easier. Rather than leaving you to chose on your own, we offer a a panel of highly qualified medical specialists for you to work with.
The detox specialists working with UMEED CLINIC’ clients monitor the process, ensuring that clients receive the care they need to pass comfortably through this stage of treatment. They will not try to fit you into a 'one-size-fits-all' program, or recommend a course of action simply because it is 'new' or 'cutting-edge', but will evaluate your situation, providing recommendations based on their years of experience.
Although detoxification is usually a short process, it is not one to be taken lightly, because it is one of the toughest stages of the journey to sobriety and lays the foundation for completing a full alcohol or drug rehab program. During the detoxification process at UMEED Treatment Centers, clients are not only adjusting their body's internal balances, breaking the habits of substance use, and beginning to regain health, they are also being counseled and prepared for the addiction treatment program.
At UMEED Treatment Centers, the detox process allows our clients’ nervous systems to re-adjust, and to restore the internal balances to a more normal state. The right supervision can help eliminate uncomfortable, harmful, or even fatal side-effects often associated with substance withdrawals. The goal of the detoxification process at UMEED CLINIC is to provide a safe, comfortable withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol and set clients up for sucess in completing the alcoholism or drug treatment process. The alcohol and drug detox program facilitated by
UMEED Treatment Centers' has three objectives:
- Provide a safe, supervised period of time as clients withdrawal from alcohol and/or drugs.
- Provide comforting assistance to individuals undergoing detox.
- Prepare the addict or alcoholic for the UMEED Treatment Program.
Sobriety begins before the treatment program does. It is a fact in the clinical world: individuals who participate in a detox program, like the one offered by UMEED Treatment Centers, receive a benefit from the brief period between the beginning of sobriety and the beginning of treatment. Our providers use alcohol and drug detox as a time to educate individuals and teach them how to develop acceptable relationships with clinical staff. When these participants arrive for treatment, they have a head start.
We understand beginning a life of sobriety is very difficult. Fear of withdrawal symptoms are a concern of many, but with the various detox programs available at our disposal, those fears can be put to rest. Our affiliates provide safe, supervised detoxification prior to treatment.
Please Note: Drug and alcohol detox (withdrawals) can be life threatening and should only be conducted by well qualified, licensed professionals. Alcohol has some of the most dangerous substance withdrawals and sudden unsupervised cessation can result in delirium tremens (DTs), or even death. Unsupervised withdrawal from barbiturates may also cause death, and opiate withdrawal although generally not life-threatening can be so uncomfortable otherwise committed individuals may abandon hopes of sobriety altogether. Please, seek professional help for withdrawals from all substances.
