Addiction is not a choice but choosing to manage it is. No one who’s a casual drinker ever anticipates becoming an alcoholic. No one who takes prescription painkillers ever expects they’ll become dependent on them. Learning to manage addiction is a difficult process that’s physically, emotionally and psychologically demanding. Before you can learn tools for dealing with your addiction, you need to give your body, mind and emotions a fresh start. For people in high-profile jobs, going through this process in a discreet setting is paramount. Private detoxification can give you the space you need to focus solely on getting healthy without getting distracted by anything or anyone else, no matter how important they may seem. With the help of Dr. Harry L. Haroutunian, you can learn the tools necessary for being your best, healthiest self.
What is Detoxification?
Nowadays, there are many ways to detoxify our bodies and our minds from various toxins or poisons that build up. If you’re struggling with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, however, you can’t just go on a juice fast or meditate to rid yourself of built-up toxins. In terms of prolonged alcohol and drug use, detoxifying is more complex and requires a period of time for your body to metabolize whatever substance is in your system, eventually getting rid of it. The withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the substance, the duration of use and on the person going through the process, so it’s critical to get the right help. Read about the broad spectrum of withdrawal symptoms. Detoxing may take only hours for some people while it may take weeks for others. Some symptoms of detoxing include shaking, sweating, nausea, anxiety, bone aches, goosebumps and runny nose. While detoxing can be painful, it’s a necessary step for your body and mind to clear itself of toxins. Learn more about the detoxifying process.
For some people, discretion and privacy are one of the keys to their success. Private detoxification may be the answer for anyone who doesn’t want their personal struggles to overshadow their public achievements. A typical detoxification facility includes group therapy, shared meals and sometimes shared rooms. While it may eventually be helpful to talk with people who have also gone through a detoxification program, many people need individualized, private detoxification to be successful.
