Jacksonville Drug Rehab – Call 904-222-8894
Common mistakes people make when they discover that they indeed have a problem with drugs and alcohol is to just quit, or go “cold turkey”. They do this rather than seeking help through a drug and treatment center. Discomfort aside, the withdrawal symptoms can cause life-threatening symptoms such as seizures, coma and heart failure. Jacksonville Drug Rehab provides innovative medical processes which are safe, comfortable and a way to halt long term substance abuse.
Jacksonville Drug Rehab provides 24-hour monitoring for patients suffering from drug withdrawal and alcohol dependency. We offer a safe, state of the art medically equipped facility. During your withdrawal process, your cravings can be so severe that many people actually resume the drug use in order to relieve the suffering. At Jacksonville Drug Rehab, our team of caring professionals evaluate each patient to determine the elimination process that will be the best fit. While some patient’s symptoms are manageable, others may require a more steady process of elimination and assistance.
Dangers of Relapse
The most dangerous aspect of addiction is that most substance abusers have periods of remission followed by a relapse. This can happen for the following reasons:
- Levels of tolerance shift and tend to make the person in recovery more susceptible to a drug overdose. If they consume the same amount of drugs and alcohol during a relapse, it’s often the exact amount they did prior to recovery- or worse.
- Many relapse events occur privately, because the user is embarrassed they have relapsed and wants to keep their problem a secret. Most fatal overdoses occur when the abuser is alone and not able to get help or proper medical attention in a timely manner.
- Severe depression and feelings of hopelessness can often happen after a relapse, causing in some cases for the individual to contemplate, or commit, suicide.
Getting professional help to get over your addiction can help to minimize the dangers of withdrawal symptoms and better prepare you with the knowledge and the tools necessary to avoid a relapse. The main goal at Jacksonville Drug Rehab is to get Jacksonville residents the help in battling addiction, and to experience full recovery and long term sobriety. In order to achieve this, all our patients are assigned a specific treatment team that will customize a specific program that will oversee the entire rehabilitation process. Our mission is to offer the most comfortable and efficient treatment facility in the world, allowing thousands to overcome addiction and go on to live happy and fulfilling lives.
