Drug Detoxification

Before entering a Christian discipleship program or Christian drug rehab they will generally insist that students have been detoxed and beyond the severe physical withdraws, because many Christian rehab centers are not equipped to assist people needing medical detoxification attention; therefore depending on the drug that you are coming off of you may need to go into detox first. Of course there are miraculous testimonies of the God completely delivering somebody from withdrawals not even having to get medically detoxed, to where Jesus Christ just took their withdrawals away with zero symptoms, Amen. Even so many of these programs will require that you've been through and past the intense physical withdrawal phases before entering into the program, for the reason that they might not be fully set up to address detoxification.

There are numerous types of detox programs depending on the drugs that you are addicted to, some drugs require a more intensive medical assisted withdrawal using various medications to ease the pain and anguish of the withdrawal symptoms. Also some drugs when detoxifying can be very dangerous because the withdrawals can cause a grand-mal seizure and have even been known to be fatal. Therefore it is important to learn which detox program you will need to safely wean off the drugs that you've been taking.

Drugs such as alcohol (alcohol is a drug) and tranquilizers, such as minor tranquilizers (benzo-diazepam-tranquilizers), or major tranquilizers can cause life-threatening withdrawals symptoms whenever coming off of them. Therefore it is important to get into a medical-detox program and be weaned off with other medications to gradually come off of the drugs safely and comfortably without any complications.

Opiates and semi-synthetic opioids such as heroin, oxycontin, roxicodone (roxys), other oxycodones, vicodin, lortab, norco, and other hydrocodones, hydromorphone (dilaudid), morphine as well as methadone and suboxone generally do not cause life-threatening withdrawals with healthy individuals (but has happened), nevertheless the anguish and suffering associated with these types of withdrawal symptoms is usually overwhelming for the addicted person, and so typically requires medical assistance with detoxification, using other medications to complete the detox process properly with the least amount of suffering as possible. Then they can be transferred to the rehabilitation part of the program to learn how to stay off the drugs and get strong mentally, emotionally and spiritually; without which typically renders the detox useless if the person doesn't get transformed in the other areas of their life through Jesus the Word of God in Christian discipleship.  (2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.)

 Other drugs such as marijuana, methamphetamine, and cocaine generally do not cause the extreme withdrawal symptoms that are life threatening and therefore generally don't require intensive medical detoxification. However it would be recommended to get some type of withdrawal plan to ease the pain and prepare them for Christian discipleship rehabilitation and treatment.
