People often underestimate the complexity of alcoholism and drug addiction – it is a disease that changes the brain and because of that, stopping is not simply a matter of willpower. Through scientific advances we now know much more about how alcohol and drugs work in the brain and we also know how it can be successfully treated, beginning with detox.
NewBridge provides medical stabilization for adults with drug, alcohol and related health issues. We offer effective outpatient detox that can help stabilize patients from a wide variety of drugs. Our outpatient detox can be an affordable and effective alternative to a costly inpatient hospital stay. If outpatient detox is not appropriate, NewBridge physicians can arrange for an inpatient hospital stay to stabilize the patient before continued treatment and recovery.
Withdrawing from Alcohol or Benzodiazepines (Xanax)
Alcohol/Benzo withdrawal syndrome is a potentially life-threatening condition that can range from mild symptoms to severe complications, such as seizures and DT’s, which can become life threatening. NewBridge’s medical staff can help patients withdraw from alcohol & benzos safely and comfortably. After the period of acute withdrawal, there are new medications that reduce cravings and enhance long term sobriety.
Withdrawing from Opiates – Heroin & Pain Pills
Whether it is prescription pain medications or heroin, opiate withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable. The important thing to remember is that opiate withdrawal is not life threatening if you are withdrawing only from opiates and not a combination of drugs. (Withdrawal from alcohol and some drugs such as benzodiazepines is potentially dangerous). Opiate withdrawal symptoms can last anywhere from one week to one month. Once the early stage withdrawal symptoms are over, patients may still experience post-acute withdrawal symptoms. These are less severe but last longer.
There are new options for treating opiate withdrawal. NewBridge’s medical staff can assist patients to comfortably withdraw from opiates and create a long term plan to reduce cravings and promote sobriety.
