Medically Managed Detoxification

At Scottsdale Providence, our approach to addiction recovery often begins with medical detoxification. Individuals reliant on substances like alcohol, benzodiazepines, opiates, or heroin may develop a physiological dependence, leading to potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms if abruptly discontinued. Attempting detox without professional medical supervision can be dangerous.

Importance of Supervised Detoxification

Sudden reduction or cessation of alcohol intake may lead to alcohol withdrawal (AW), characterized by symptoms such as tremors, irritability, anxiety, or agitation. Severe manifestations like delirium tremens, hallucinations, seizures, and even death can occur due to alcohol-induced brain chemistry imbalances. Proper recognition and management of withdrawal, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches, are vital steps in the recovery process.
