Pasadena Recovery Center: A Residential Rehab

Medical Detox: Is It Safe?

Yes a medical detox is safe. In fact if you are going to go through detox you want it to be with professionals at the helm. A person can die going through detox if they do not have doctor supervision. That’s why they tell people who might be deciding to quit drugs or alcohol cold turkey to talk to their doctor before they do so. If the person has a serious addiction going cold turkey without a doctor present can cause some serious problems. While a person shouldn’t be scared of detox and withdrawal symptoms sometimes anti- anxiety meds and other prescription drugs are necessary to help the person through the detox process.

Pasadena Recovery Center: Sometimes Location Is Everything

If you are looking at rehabs you might want to look at a Pasadena recovery center. Sometimes just giving an addict a serene setting instead of the dark hole they’ve been living in during their drug or alcohol addiction makes all the difference while going through detox and therapy. That change of scenery can really wake a person up.

Residential Rehab: Is Checking Him In Our Only Option?

Checking your husband into a residential rehab is not your only option for getting him help. However, if he needs the help of an inpatient program in order to get well and kick this addiction problem he’s having once and for all than yes, it’s your only option because it’s the best option. If he and you both think that he can get the help he needs and stay clean through going to meetings and outpatient rehab then that’s entirely possible. You just need to ask yourself why you don’t want him to go and if it’s person he’ll be away for thirty days ask yourself what’s more important those thirty days or the rest of your lives together.
