In a detox facility, patients are accessed for underlying mental and physical health conditions and polydrug use. Doctors take a thorough look at medical history and give an exam to patients to determine a safe tapering off schedule.
During the first few days after cessation, patients are kept in a secure, safe environment where they can be monitored 24/7 for dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Once patients enter the acute phase of withdrawal where symptoms are most severe, doctors and therapists can assist them with safe, legal medications to lessen the severity of withdrawal and keep them in a serene environment where they’re supported and helped through this difficult phase in their recovery journey.
Once symptoms begin to lessen, and the Klonopin entirely works its way out of the patient’s bloodstream, a team of doctors, social workers, and therapists work with the patient to formulate and execute an ongoing maintenance plan. This plan will most likely include a stay in a rehab center, along with pre-scheduled therapy sessions and a timeline for outpatient recovery.
