At the beginning of drug addiction and alcoholism treatment at Sadaqat Clinic, a patient undergoes a complete medical examination. To ensure best treatment, patient is kept under close observation for the first 10 days to manage their withdrawal symptoms. During this time, professionals communicate the treatment plan with the patient, which is designed based on their needs and medical status.
Withdrawal management at Sadaqat Clinic, the best psychiatric and addiction treatment centre in Karachi, Murree, and Islamabad, involves medically supervised detoxification. Sadaqat Clinic provides the best withdrawal management that aims to minimize pain and discomfort that accompanies detoxification, with the use of medications administered by a physician in an inpatient/indoor or outpatient/outdoor setting. Withdrawal symptoms can be both physical and psychological. For example, withdrawal symptoms in heroin addiction include extreme sweating, cramping limbs, nausea and vomiting, crying jags, insomnia, fever, runny nose, and diarrhea. Sometimes, detoxification can even be fatal; therefore, professionals may decrease a patient’s alcohol or drug consumption over the first 2-3 weeks, instead of stopping it abruptly.
During withdrawal management at Sadaqat Clinic, patient’s symptoms, mood, thoughts, behaviours, and nutrition are also thoroughly monitored. Patients may become easily irritated and experience emotional dysregulation at this time, but instead of accepting these as withdrawal symptoms of addiction, they tend to blame them on physicians and the rehabilitation facility. With time and best treatment approaches, withdrawal symptoms in addiction patients at Sadaqat Clinic improve and patient are gradually engaged in rehabilitation groups and light exercise.
