Medical Supervised Detoxification Programs for Drug, Meds or Alcoholism in Puerto Rico

Currently in Puerto Rico, there are some drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs and facilities that can offer medical detox for severe cases of addiction. Medical drug and alcohol detox is required when an addict is on such large and dangerous amounts of drugs and alcohol, the withdrawals from these substances could possibly kill them or cause severe physical harm. The purpose of a medical drug and alcohol detox is to slowly wean down an addict off of their drug of choice with other medications to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms. By the end of the whole process, an addict should be completely drug and alcohol-free, and stable physically before they enter a drug treatment center. Medical detox can be a lengthy process, but it is an important step for some addicts, as the withdrawals will be too much to handle. These facilities are always residential and provide the medical staff and supervision needed to help men and women through this process.

Physical symptoms will be different depending on the drug the person is withdrawing from. Typically it is nausea, restless, and muscle aches, but these symptoms can be compounded with others, as each drug will cause different withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox programs will utilize different methods to help alleviate these withdrawal symptoms, and in many cases, other medications are used to help with this process.
