Medically Monitored GHB Drug Detox Program at Wellness Retreat Recovery

When an individual has used GHB, or gamma hydroxybutyric acid, long-term, they are likely to exhibit signs of addiction like withdrawal when the substance isn’t used. Because of the challenging and dangerous withdrawal symptoms from using GHB long-term, it is highly suggested that addicted individuals utilize a medical GHB detox program to begin recovery. This ensures that in the case of discomfort or emergency, these individuals can detox from GHB safely, effectively, and more comfortably.

Detoxing from Home Vs. Monitored Medical Detox

Sure, detoxing from home saves you money and hassle, but is it effective? Commonly, individuals think that they can simply stop using GHB cold turkey, or without any tapering or medicinal help. But, without the necessary means, most of these people end up relapsing. Withdrawal isn’t comfortable. The only way to ease symptoms of withdrawal at home is to use the addictive substance the body is craving. Additionally, physical withdrawal symptoms of GHB can last weeks. Not to mention, psychological withdrawal (cravings) can last months. Without both monitored medical detox and addiction treatment, GHB long-term users have little chance of obtaining successful recovery from their addiction. By choosing monitored medical detox, you aren’t just choosing the safety, comfort, and guidance of experienced addiction medical professionals, you are choosing a better chance at getting better from addiction!
