Safety during Rehab

Safety during RehabSafety is always top priority in any addiction rehab clinic. Safety during rehab is generally focused on protecting the patients from side effects related to addiction recovery and protecting the patients from themselves. Medical personnel will be available before, during and after detox. Detox is a physically and mentally trying experience for California residents. The heart and body is stressed, as it tries to rebalance and remove the chemicals that have accumulated in the body due to the addiction. Having medical personnel present is essential for the safety of the patient, especially if the addiction is severe. Mood swings are also common during detox, and professionals can help patients manage these emotions without harming themselves or others. Even seemingly harmless drugs can produce severe withdrawal symptoms if overused, and most addictive drugs are far from harmless.

Why Addiction Rehabilitation Is the Right Choice for California Residents

Rehab is a great alternative to the continued use of the drug that the patient has been abusing. For example the short-term side effects of heroin include the following:

  • Itching
  • Slurred speech
  • Twitching
  • Trembling
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness
  • Bradycardia (irregular slowness of the beating of the heart)

Heroin addiction also often ends with overdose and subsequent death due to a buildup of resistance to the drug and needing to take more for the same high. Rehab programs will help end heroin and other addictions and all associated risks. Addiction rehab is always better than the option of continued drug use and the experience of related physical, emotional and social harm.
