Drug and Alcohol Detoxification

January 10, 2017 by Christie



Opioid drug use in the US is at an all time high! CDC reports 100 deaths every day! The body begins to build up a tolerance for the drug by the forth week of consistent use.

Getting off the drug is not easy

As the tolerance builds, the brain stops producing natural pain management chemicals. When the medication is decreased the body feels more pain, not because of the inflammation in the injury site (which we treat naturally with acupuncture or acupressure). It feels more discomfort because of the interference in the brain chemicals that naturally reduces pain.

Serious side effects

The side effects of coming off of opioids are numerous and can be severe! Early symptoms include:

  • Watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety or irritability
  • Poor sleep
  • Muscle pain

Later symptoms may include:

  • Cramping
  • Diahrrea
  • Vomiting
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Restlessness
  • Shakiness
  • Chills
  • Sweating
  • Gooseflesh skin
  • Dilated pupils

These symptoms could last up to 3 weeks when coming off the opioid drug.

Symptoms can be avoided naturally

We have helped many people avoid these symptoms by providing natural treatments and electro-acupuncture to detox the medication from the body quickly and easily.

Certified under the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association for Acu-Detox, we help to aid in addiction treatments. We will be happy to help you kick your opioid addiction!
