Do You Need a Medical Detox?

If you are struggling with alcohol or drug abuse, you may need to detox from the substance in a controlled medical environment. If you are wondering whether you or a loved one needs treatment in a medical detox center, it can be helpful to know the signs of a substance use disorder, more commonly known as an addiction.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) outlines the criteria for substance use disorders (SUDs) as relating to two or more of the following symptoms within 12 month period:

  1. Taking larger amounts of a substance for longer than intended.
  2. Making unsuccessful attempts to cut down or control substance use.
  3. Spending a lot of time obtaining, using, or recovering from the effects of substance use.
  4. Craving or a strong desire or urge to use the substance.
  5. Substance use results in a failure to fulfill obligations at work, school, or home.
  6. Continuing substance use despite routine social or relationship problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of the substance.
  7. Abandoning important social, occupational, or recreational activities because of substance use.
  8. Recurrent substance use in risky situations.
  9. Continuing substance use despite physical or psychological problems caused or exacerbated by the substance.
  10. Developing tolerance:
    • Increased amounts of the substance to achieve intoxication or desired effects.
    • Diminished effect with continued use of the same amount.
  11. Withdrawal symptoms:
    • The characteristic withdrawal syndrome for the substance.
    • The same substance is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms.

The severity of your alcohol or substance use disorder is dependent on how many of the criteria listed above apply to you or your loved one within the past 12 months.

More importantly, detoxing from drugs and alcohol can produce very dangerous, and even life-threatening symptoms. For this reason, it is important to seek the help of medical professionals.
