Why Medically Supervised Treatment is Vital
If you or a loved one has finally made the wise decision of breaking out of your bad habits, healthcare professionals strongly recommend a medically assisted rehab program instead of ‘going cold turkey,’ or the immediate, do-it-yourself detox.
Going cold turkey can potentially put your health and your life in danger. When you start detoxifying your body of whatever substance you’re addicted to, you will have to deal with the withdrawal symptoms, which vary from one person to another. Common emotional symptoms are:
Obvious physical symptoms can be:
- Muscle tenderness and irritability
Unfortunately, there are no apparent shortcuts in the detoxification as of now. In a rehab facility, you will still have to deal with basically the same withdrawal symptoms. However, it does have seasoned medical experts to guide and motivate you through these overwhelming and agonizing effects of withdrawal.
What makes us stand out among other men-only rehab programs is our dual-diagnosis approach. In other words, we believe that people who have fallen into drugs or alcohol have other co-occurring mental issues, which can either be the root cause or the effect of their addiction. Merito is the go-to place for men who wish to become clean, sober and free from drugs and alcohol.
Joining a rehab program doesn’t always mean leaving your duties at home or responsibilities at work. Merito offers sub-acute detox, an option recommended for patients who are physically, mentally, emotionally stable enough to receive less monitoring.
