A drug detox program is the best first step in a journey to overcoming a drug or alcohol use disorder. Because alcohol and drug use severely alters brain chemistry and makes it difficult to function normally. The benefits of detox are many, including most notably, removing all traces of those addictive drugs from your body.
If you are suffering from drug use and are ready to reclaim your life, our Alina Lodge team can help. Reach out to Alina Lodge online, or you call us at 833.685.1700 today, and you can experience the many benefits of our drug and alcohol detox programs.
5 Benefits of Detox
1. Physical Recovery
The detox process should be conducted in a proper medical environment like Alina Lodge to keep you safe. Once all of the drugs are removed from your system, your physical body will begin to recover and heal. Long-term drug use causes people to suffer physical consequences. After detox, as your body heals, your physical condition will improve.
2. A Boost of Self-Esteem
Through detox programs, you will get on the right track, and with that comes the self-esteem you’ve been missing. The positive, forward momentum of gaining that confidence that comes from detox and recovery can propel you toward continued success in recovery.
3. Improved Mental Health
People who are dependent on drugs often suffer co-occurring mental health problems. These could have been pre-existing or brought on by addiction. One of the benefits of detox is the ability to face mental health problems in a safe environment, and in doing so, help prevent relapse. You will also have the opportunity to address emotional trauma head-on, as these experiences from your past may be at the root of your drug addiction. Through therapy at Alina Lodge, you will learn to let go of their trauma and move forward to live a happier, healthier life.
4. Financial Well-Being
Being addicted to drugs and alcohol is expensive. One of the most significant benefits of detox is found in the ‘bottom line.’ You will begin to rebuild your financial life, learn how to make good money decisions, and experience a kind of financial well-being that you maybe never knew.
5. Healthy Relationships
Drug and alcohol use and addiction not only take a massive toll on your mind, body, and spirit, but it hurts those you love and impacts everyone in your circle, such as friends, family, co-workers, and peers. The benefits of detox extend to these people, too, because you will be able to rebuild relationships, set boundaries, make amends, and have healthy relationships once again. In recovery, you learn essential life skills and coping mechanisms during treatment at Alina Lodge.
