The Importance of Staying Drug Free
Ask anyone who has broken free of addiction – it is a tortuous road to freedom.
Withdrawal symptoms – the sensations the body goes through as you attempt to quit usually begin shortly before your next scheduled dose of the drug. Sometimes they start just a few hours after your last dose, but usually they hit you between 6-12 hours after your last dose. Withdrawal symptoms can include irritability, sleeplessness, and increased appetite.
You may notice watery eyes, a runny nose, yawning; perhaps you start sweating or have trouble sleeping (insomnia). You may often feel restless, irritable, notice a loss of appetite, body aches, severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea or tremors. If your cravings get stronger, you may feel dysphoria (a profound state of unease), start to think about suicide, and get a strong craving for your drug. Those cravings for your drug of addiction all too often lead to relapse despite your best efforts to quit.
If you walked that road once, you do not want to have to go there again. Repeated addiction only leads to an “expanding cycle of dysfunction.” So, once you are drug free, it is critically important to stay drug free.
The problem is that with most detox therapies, some of the drug remains in your system. Those opiate receptors in your body – that is where “opioids” try to attach, to hook you on feeling “high” – feel like they are still looking for a lost friend. As a recent video from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA/NIH) confirms, it is very hard to quit.
The Rapid Drug Detox (RDD) Center has a better approach. Their RDD Method™ (“Rapid Drug Detoxification”) quickly and painlessly “washes clean” the opiate receptors in your body. Then, as soon as you are cleansed, before you leave the RDD Center facility, you start Naltrexone Therapy.
Naltrexone is an FDA approved, non-addicting, opiate blocker. With the Rapid Drug Detox Center’s RDD Method™, a carefully monitored program of that Naltrexone ensures that opiate drugs do not re-attach to your “clean” receptors. You will be amazed at your lack of craving for opiates.
And that’s the goal – freedom from addiction.
