Why Do You Need Detox?

NAD/NTR rapid detox has proven to be effective in treating all classes of drug addiction. Its effects on cravings, withdrawal symptoms and cognitive functioning act immediately once the patient is undergoing treatment.

NAD/NTR detox can help treat a variety of substance abuse cases but has shown to be most effective with those who suffer from addiction to alcohol and/or opiates. Withdrawals from both of these drug types are among the most painful. Patients who have undergone this treatment have reported a 50 to 80 percent decrease in withdrawal symptoms without any other detox aids.

This program can also be very beneficial to those suffering with addiction to benzodiazepines. Some other benzo detox treatment may be administered as needed in cases where a patient has been using them long term and in very high doses.

NTR/NAD is especially beneficial because it offers a cutting-edge approach to treating addiction without the use of potentially addictive substances during the detox process. Listed below are some common signs associated with detox from some of the more severe substances including alcohol, benzodiazepines and opiates. If one is experiencing any one of the symptoms listed, they should look to move into a detox treatment program as soon as possible.

Alcohol Withdrawal Signs

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening if not treated properly. They most often occur within 48-96 hours after the last drink but can begin as soon as just two hours after. Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia (trouble falling and staying asleep)
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Sweating profusely, especially on the face or the palms of hands
  • Chest Pain
  • Fever
  • Shakiness
  • Seizures
  • Delirium tremens: a very severe form of alcohol withdrawal that involves sudden and severe central nervous system changes. These must be monitored and symptoms may include: body tremors, disorientation, deep sleep that lasts for a day or longer and audio and visual hallucinations

Signs of Benzodiazepines Withdrawal

Benzodiazepines or “benzos” can cause severe withdrawal symptoms that can be life-threatening if not treated properly. Withdrawal signs associated with prolonged benzodiazepine use are similar to that of alcohol and can include:

  • Agitation and restlessness
  • Severe anxiety and panic attacks
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Paranoia
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Body tremors

The detox process for benzodiazepines often requires a slow taper where they are actually used in small and monitored amounts to wean the patient off of them safely and effectively.

Symptoms of Opiate withdrawal

Opiate withdrawal is very painful but not life-threatening like detox from alcohol or benzos. Symptoms of opiate withdrawal include:

  • Muscle soreness and general aches
  • Fever-like sweating
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Diarrhea and abdominal cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting

These symptoms typically last roughly seven to ten days. Methods for detox from opiates like heroin and prescription pills such Oxycontin, Opana, Deluded, and Vicodin have vastly improved over the years. A common and much less effective treatment method for opiate addiction was having patients use methadone. This is often referred to as Methadone maintenance. They would have opiate addicts ceases their opiate use and have them start taking methadone instead. Users of methadone often up up abusing it, for it has its own set of painful withdrawal symptoms which were shown to last even longer than that of opiates. Many would agree today that this method only replaces one addiction with another. Thankfully NAD/NTR detox is able to circumvent the need for this replacement drug and help patient’s truly start on their path to recovery.
