Detox for drug and alcohol addiction in New Jersey, like many places in the country, often happens after an individual overdoses or goes to the emergency room (ER). Although the ER is not a common setting for drug detoxification in addiction treatment, it is often there that an individual realizes that he/she needs professional help to overcome drug abuse or addiction, as well as the need for medical detoxification. That is also the time that family and friends find out about the severity of their loved ones addiction.
Another way an addicted individual can end up at the ER is when the person is trying to detox by him/herself. SELF-DETOXING IS DANGEROUS AND OFTEN DEADLY, as withdrawal symptoms can be either unbearable, or life-threatening without proper medical supervision. Not only is detoxing alone dangerous, but seizures or tremors (which come from chemical changes in the body), can be absolutely unbearable. Blood pressure can rise and the neurological changes heighten the chance of intense seizures.
Here are some reasons why you don't want to consider self-detox
After extensive usage of an addictive substance such as drugs or alcohol, the body becomes dependent on it for normal functioning and survival. When trying to stop drug use and remove them from one's system without medical supervision, the individual will lose normal functioning of his or her body. Everyday typical activities like work and interaction with others become daunting. The body feels weak, and the individual will experience intense withdrawal symptoms manifesting as anxiety, physical pain, and as mentioned above, seizures & tremors.
Common withdrawal symptoms experienced without professional medical detoxing:
Increased respiratory rate
Nausea and vomiting
Lacrimation (tearing or crying)
Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat)
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Dilated (enlarged) pupils
Muscle and bone pain
Seizures and/or tremors
