Colorado Drug Rehab....You Can Detox at Home!
Understanding Detox and Deciding if it is For You
Detox or Withdrawals at Home
If you are detoxing from opiates, meth, crystal meth, methamphetamine, marijuana and other drugs,you may find that detoxing at home is equal to and in many ways better than going to a social model detox. Not only is it less expensive, but you have more control over your withdrawals and you have loved ones to help you, rather than impersonal staff members.
DO NOT DETOX AT HOME FOR THESE DRUGS: alcohol, benzodiazapines (like Xanax or Vaium)or barbituabes.
Most addicts have experience withdrawals without the support of vitamins, minerals and the help of others and feel that they can't confront this type of detox again. , This is easy to understand, but what we are giving you on this page and the help that we can provide can make this detox successful and not painful.
If you have done medical detox, you are familiar with the feeling of finishing one detox and then needing to get off of the drugs that you were given during the detox.
This method of detoxing at home is totally drug-free and when you have completed this detox, you won't need to withdrawal from other drugs after you finish the "detox" process.
Detoxing at home is NOT recommended for alcohol withdrawals, or withdrawals from benzodiazopines, such as xanax or valium, barbituates, and some other psychiatric medicaitons (drugs). You can call our counselors and they will help you decide if detoxing at home is right for you.
DETOXING AT HOME REQUIRES HELP FROM OTHERS
Many times addicted persons wiill start withdrawalsonly because they have run out of their drugs of choice. This isn't the ideal way to approach withdrawals since you haven't the time to prepare the vitamins and minerals and support that is needed to make this a successful endeavor.
The reasons why many withdrawals lead back to addictive use is because of a lack of preperation and support.
It is recommened that you have someone in your family dedicate three to four days to your withdrawal process. They won't need to be constantly at you side, but they will be there to administer massage techniques, prepare your suppliments and keep your mind occupied while you are feeling as though you have a case of the flu.
With the help from others, some people go completely through their detox without feeling as though they were really addicted since their withdrawal symptoms were so mild that they feel that they didn't "kick". Truthfully, if you follow the "Detox at Home" recipe, withdrawals are at least twice as easy and, for many, even easier than that.
NEEDED MATERIALS FOR DETOXING AT HOME
As mentioned above, many of the withdrawal pains are caused by a deficit iin certain vitamins and minerals in the body. Withdrawals cause changes in one's blood pressure and circulation as well, which can be handled with massage techniques and suppliments.
VITAMINS AND MINERALS... when a person has been taking opiates, the body has been challenged in terms of its pool of vitamins and mineral reserves and over the past 30 years that we have been doing opiates withdrawals, we have yet to have a patient that didn't need nutrient support and have yet to have anyone that didn't appreciate how much easier their withdrawals were because of attention paid to this component.
NEW ADDITION: One of the most improtant factors in having an easier and more successful withdrawal from any drugs, but especially opiates, is to increase the serotonin and dopamine level in the brain. These are neurohormones and when their levels are high, you feel stronger ad more capable, as well as calmer with better and more restful sleep.

1. "DRUG BOMB" or "The Drug Withdrawal Formula"
The routine prescription or collection of vitamins and minerals is colloquial called the "Drug Bomb" and which is made up of the following:
1,000 milligrams of niacinamide (not nicotinic acid ).
This helps counteract any mental disturbance.
5,000 IU of vitamin A.
400 IU of vitamin D.
800 IU of vitamin E.
2,000 milligrams of vitamin C.
500 milligrams of magnesium carbonate (to make the vitamin C effective).
25 milligrams of B-6.
200 milligrams of B complex.
300 milligrams of B-1.
100 milligrams of pantothenic acid.
It can be difficult to find these vitamins and minerals in these amounts at your neighborhood health food store and it has never been something that you can find at Whole Foods Markets or GNC, but you can order the "Drug Withdrawal Formula" from Peter Gillham's Nutrients http://www.petergillham.com. (800) 446-7462... You can also get the correct CalMag from Peter Gillham's Nutrients as well. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU PURCHASE THE SUPPLEMENTS FROM PETER GILLHAMS NUTIRENTS because they make these items for over 100 treatment centers that use the biophysical model of detox and treatment. When you call Peter Gillham's Nutrients, ask them for the "Drug Withdrawal Formula" and "CalMag". Those are the brand names for the vitamins listed aove. Peter Gillhams is the best source of these products.
In the process of becoming addicted to drugs, the body does all it can to rid the drug and its metabolites out of the person so that the body's survival won't be threatened. However, in the process, the body pushes fat-soluble substances into the fat tissue and rather than staying there dormant, these drugs leach back out into the blood stream causing the person to feel the familiar effects of these drugs and causing relapse and cravings. In this process, the vitamins and minerals that are stored in the fat tissue are also leached out and the body is left in a deficit condition, which causes depression and a lack of energy which always accompanies cravings for more drugs and/or alcohol.
With the Drug Bomb, you should also get some CalMag with the following ratios: Calcium Gluconate and Magnesium carbonate in a 2:1 ratio with citric acid added to enhance it absorbability. This is a special formula and is as important as the Drug Bomb. CalMag, in this formula can also be found at Peter Gillham's Nutrients or you can purchase "A to B Calm", which is an excellent product as well. CalMag is a NATURAL TRANQUILIZER. and can be taken up to 7 times per day and should always be taken at bedtime. CalMag will relax the muscles of the body and keep your legs from jumping at night as well as reduce the gastro-intestinal discomfort that accomplies withdrawals.
CalMag relieves the "jerking legs" and lower back pain that accompanies opiate withdrawals and will help you sleep more soundly, as well. You can also get a bottle of 100mgs. B1 to supplement the B1 in the Drug Bomb and take another 300-500mgs. of B1 at bedtime and repeat the same if you awaken in the night due to nightmares or anxious feelings during the night. Take the B1 with a cup of CalMag for best results. If you are still experiencing sleeplessness, buy a bottle of 5-HTP, which is an amino acid that induces sleep and will usually allow you to soundly sleep for 4 to 5 hours between doses.
Sleeplessness can continue after withdrawals for some time (too long), but if you keep taking the suppliments listed above, especially the CalMag, B1 and 5-HTP, you will be getting ample sleep within weeks.
Cobwebs or Fuzzy Headedness are two of the annoying feelings that go along with detox from drugs. CalMag and B1 are the best solutions for this feeling. These feelings come from heightened anxiety and these supplements will stabilize your nervousness and give you energy and excitement about life.
3. Ask for a Friend or Family Member to Help You
It is very important to help someone that is going through withdrawals to ease their pain and to make their withdrawal successful. Withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs isn't easy and it is always helpful to have someone help you through the process, just as you would want someone to help you if you had a severe case of the flu. You can call our counsellors and we will do all we can, but you really need someone with you for the first three or four days. Call our office and we will inform you of books that show how someone can assist another in getting through drug withdrawals. All loved ones are glad to help someone kick a drug habit and later you can repay them by staying clean and being productive.
It is a huge step for someone to get to the point that they will actually admit that they have a drug addiction and an even larger success when they are willing to withdrawal from their habitual use of these drugs. That is the most that we can expect, so it is important that we make the withdraw process as easy and comfortable as possible so that they won't be so exhausted that they can't feel the "high" of being drug-free again.
4. A Written Guide To This Natural Detox Procedure
To help in the process, there are techniques of massage and other body-oriented actions that you can do to help relieve the pain that is associated with opiate and other withdrawals. Some of the simplest, yet effective procedures are taught to loved ones using mild massage techniques. It is impossible to give you that instruction on this website, but Colorado Drug Rehab will get you in touch with a drug treatment center that sells a manual that is easily understood and teaches you to perform the actions that will bring relief to someone's whose muscles are tight and causing pain and sleeplessness. If you are interested in the DETOX BOOK, call us at 877.888.4802 and we will get you in touch with the people that wrote and distribute this manual.
Unless you need medical attention, as described above, A Good Social Model Detox is Usually A Better Choice. ...You will feel better sooner and it is much less expensive.
Many alcohol and drug treatment programs do not provide detox or withdrawal programs, therefore it is up to the addict or alcoholic to detox on their own or go to a licensed detox center.
There are some programs that profess that detox isn't necessary... there are many other lies on the internet.
Families or Individuals call us at 877-888-4802 to get advice on your case. We have given you some of the basics of doing withdrawals at home and the differences between Medical Detox and Social Model Detox. It is best that you call our counselors before you embark on either form of withdrawals. Knowing that you have all of the information will handle much of the psychological problems related to withdrawals.
ONE LAST AND IMPORTANT ASPECT TO WITHDRAWALS
As mentioned above, a major component of detoxing is emotional or psychological. Therefore, to make your withdrawals easier and more successful, NEVER sit for extended periods and watch TV. Sometimes it is okay to watch a movie, but make it a comedy. Never watch the news or political programing like FOX or MSNBC! (Actually, it is a good idea to stay away from this negative side of life for three months following your withdrawals.)
You need to keep yourself busy doing activities that have an outcome, like taking time to clean a neglected area of the house, etc. Also, during the first three to four days, you should take a walk outside and concentrate on everything outside of your head and thoughts. Look at the different flowers or new growth of the trees. It is beneficial to walk with a companion and resist talking about your withdrawals, but talk about the beauty in your surroundings.
