What to Expect in Detox
Do not let the fear of detox keep you trapped in addiction! At New Start Recovery Solutions Sacramento – we can help.
What is Detox?
Detox from drugs or alcohol is elimination of addictive substances from the body. Alcohol or drug addiction results in the body developing dependence on addictive substances. When the substances are reduced and removed during detox, the body has to adjust to the change.
Detox and PAWS Support
During detox, we give support, counseling and guidance to our patients on all levels. Detox support begins in intake and evaluation and extends through Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome PAWS.
Physical withdrawal symptoms are handled with medical supervision and medication. We also support the emotional and psychological disturbances many individuals experience during and after detox. Emotional and psychological symptoms can range from almost none to devastating.
Detox Experience Varies
Reactions to detox are difficult to predict in advance. Some of the individually variable factors include type of substance used, length of the substance abuse and quantities used, physical and mental health, social and family situation, stress and genetics.
Our compassionate and experienced medical staff at New Start Recovery Solutions Sacramento supervises patients in detox 24/7.
We provide crucial medical supervision, counseling and emotional support during the acute detox process.
And we support our patients during the critical Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) phase.
We encourage and guide detox patients into entering addiction treatment therapy after detox.
Treatment needs to be readily available. Because drug-addicted individuals may be uncertain about entering treatment, taking advantage of available services the moment people are ready for treatment is critical. Potential patients can be lost if treatment is not immediately available or readily accessible. As with other chronic diseases, the earlier treatment is offered in the disease process, the greater the likelihood of positive outcomes.

Detox Process at New Start Recovery Solutions Sacramento
Step 1. Comprehensive Evaluation. This includes testing for alcohol and substances;
medical, physical and psychological assessment; and a personalized treatment plan for safe detox.
Step 4. Detox is the first step in addiction recovery.
· Effective detox includes encouraging entry into substance use disorder treatment.
· Detox alone should not be confused with addiction recovery and healing.
What is Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome PAWS?
Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome PAWS
PAWS is a combination of emotional, mental and physical symptoms. It occurs after the initial physical withdrawal from alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, antidepressants and other substances.
What PAWS symptoms can I expect?
Each individual has unique physical, psychological, emotional and genetic factors.
Some individuals will experience one or two symptoms after detox. Others may experience multiple symptoms.
What are Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome symptoms?
- Increased Sensitivity to Stress and Discomfort
- Sleep Disturbances
- Anxiety and Depression
- Anhedonia – the inability to feel pleasure.
- Dysphoria – state of generalized unhappiness, restlessness, dissatisfaction, or frustration.
- Mood swings – from depression to euphoria.
- Brain Fog – trouble concentrating.
- Memory Problems
- Irritability or Edginess
- Fine Motor Coordination Problems
How long will PAWS last?
For long term recovery – it is critical to get effective and quality care and support during detox and addiction recovery treatment. It is equally important to have recovery support ongoing. New Start Recovery Solutions has a complete continuum of care; including aftercare and alumni groups and support.
Our goal is for our patients to experience life-long recovery from addiction.
After Detox – Next Step, Rehab
It is good to enter detox and remove harmful substances. But if after detox the individual immediately returns to substance or alcohol abuse – then detox was only a temporary solution to address the physical discomfort from an ongoing addiction.
Substance Use Disorder + Mental Health Issues = Dual Diagnosis
If you think you may be suffering from alcohol use disorder or substance use disorder – as well as PTSD, depression, trauma or other mental health issue (dual diagnosis) – please know that seeking help is the first step to addiction recovery and regaining control of your life.
We believe that addiction is a complex but treatable disease. And, that no single addiction treatment is appropriate for everyone.
Each patient receives a biopsychosocial assessment and a personalized treatment plan.
