Maryland House Detox offers comprehensive drug and alcohol detoxification services. With fully accredited medical professionals on staff, you will be in a safe environment as you fight withdrawal symptoms and overcome physical dependency.
When a chemical dependency forms, your body will rely on those chemicals to function properly. When the continual supply of that drug stops, your body will go into withdrawal. Symptoms can start within a few hours in some cases and after 24 hours in others. Withdrawal symptoms can vary widely depending on several factors, but there are a few common effects:
- Elevated heart rate
- Muscle tension and soreness
- Shortness of breath
Drug and alcohol withdrawals can be dangerous without medical supervision. In some cases, physical dependence on a substance can cause seizures, heart attack, or stroke. That’s why it’s important to have qualified medical professionals nearby who can mitigate discomfort and monitor your overall health.
Different chemicals affect the brain in unique ways. The treatment that would be appropriate for one addict may not help another. When you arrive at MHD, you will be evaluated based on your unique body composition, the drug and dosage of your addictive substance, how long you were using drugs, and the presence of any comorbid addictions. Based on your evaluation, you will enter a four-to-seven-day detox program tailored to your needs.

With state-of-the-art facilities and treatment techniques, Maryland House Detox can manage any addiction.
