When a person with a substance abuse problem comes to us for help, our first step in the process is to get them off the Drugs or the Alcohol, and to get the remaining residual out of their systems. Before our clients can begin there rehabilitation program they must have been clean for at least 4 days .

Once the individual has discontinued use of their particular substance, their body will begin to react both positively and negatively to the lack of the substances in their system.

Positively: the body begins the detox process, the internal organs are working hard to get the Toxins (the substance that was being used) out of the body.

Negatively: The body begins to Crave, because it is experiencing a withdrawal from the Substances it had grown accustomed too and even a Dependency.

After the Detox Program we also Have a Sauna Detox Therapy that is recommended, it is used to get the residual toxins that have been stored up in the body fat, broken down and flushed out of your system.

Alcohol Detox

The amount of time required for alcohol detoxification may be anywhere from 3 to 7 days. The cost for a 7 day Drug and Alcohol Detox Treatment is $2500.00 +tax.

Alcohol additionally affects other body systems.

Aggravation to the gastrointestinal tract can take place along with erosion of the lining of the esophagus and stomach leading to nausea and vomiting, and possibly bleeding.
Vitamins and minerals aren’t absorbed effectively, which may result in nutritional deficiencies as a result of long-term consumption of alcohol. In these cases we recommend Intravenous Vitamin and Mineral Therapy.

A drug detox and rehabilitation facility, like Valiant Recovery, can assist an opiate addict to get free from the drug addiction they suffer from. Drug withdrawal symptoms can range depending on the substance used but they commonly include:

Alcohol and tranquilizers produce the most dangerous physical withdrawal. Suddenly stopping alcohol or tranquilizers can lead to seizures, strokes, or heart attacks in high risk patients. A medically supervised detox can minimize your withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of dangerous complications. Some of the dangerous symptoms of alcohol and tranquilliser withdrawal are:

  • Grand mal seizures
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium tremens (DTs)

Heroin and Methadone addictions are medically some of the toughest drugs to beat. The physical cravings are so powerful, that many addicted individuals maintain usage, to just merely maintain and just not feel sick. Our medically assisted detox for heroin and methadone addiction, gradually tapers a person off, together with a dietary plan which promotes the detox process.

Withdrawal from opiates like heroin and oxycontin is extremely uncomfortable, but not dangerous unless they are mixed with other drugs. Heroin withdrawal on its own does not produce seizures, heart attacks, strokes, or delirium tremens.
