Why Withdrawal Management Is Important
The sudden removal of alcohol or drugs from the system of someone who is physically dependent produces either an abstinence or withdrawal syndrome. The abstinence syndrome for each drug follows a predictable time course and has predictable signs and symptoms – usually the reverse of the direct pharmacological effects of the drug. Some clients’ potential for a withdrawal symptom is so severe that medical monitoring is necessary to avoid potentially hazardous consequences, including severe injury, medical complications or even death.
Individuals who are admitted to the Heartland Center WM Program experience detoxification in a comfortable, medically-monitored residential environment. All services are provided by licensed medical professionals. Our physician/APRN staff visit the unit daily to ensure each client is safely progressing through the withdrawal process. Licensed nursing staff provide care 24 hours, daily.
