    Emil Center - Detox and Rehab

    We are here for your peace of mind Leave details and we will start in a new way

      Withdrawal Syndrome

      “Withdrawal Syndrome” is a condition that occurs when the addicted person does not receive his or her drug dose or when trying to go through detoxification from the drug he consumed – it is a set of symptoms occurring in discontinuation or dosage reduction of drugs, alcohol or some types of medications. The character and severity of the symptoms depending upon the particular drug and the daily dose. This is because each drug acts on a different physiological mechanism, and there is also an individual effect of drug withdrawal on the person who consumed it.

      What does the Residential Program include?

      When we say “Residential” rehabilitation, we mean that the patient is with us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Patients reside at our Clinic for the duration of their treatment program, which may be short-term (30 days) or long-term (up to 6 months). During the rehabilitation process at our clinic, patients are given the opportunity to go on home visits according to the recommendations of the professional staff.

      Withdrawal Syndrome - state of withdrawal

      When the person is in a state of withdrawal, his body signals to him that he needs the drug dose. Without the drug dose, the addict’s physical condition is extremely difficult, but once he receives the drug, the negative signs and severe physical phenomena will disappear. Many times, the appearance of the withdrawal syndrome results in an extremely difficult state of mind expressed by violence and unnatural behavior. Sometimes the addict is so desperately in need of a drug dose that he reaches a state where he performs “survival” actions to get the drug – steals, acts violently and more.

      Residential Program

      An addict who is admitted to the institute receives all the support and treatment needed to undergo a highly effective process, including tests by a doctor-narcologist, close supervision of the detoxification and rehabilitation process and withdrawal syndrome, psychological-clinical therapy, treatment groups, individual therapy, psycho-drama, Yoga Therapy and close social worker guidance that takes care of all patients’ needs outside and within the therapeutic setting. Physical rehabilitation includes 3 full and nutritious meals a day, rich in vitamins and minerals essential for body rehabilitation, sleeping in spacious, comfortable rooms equipped with air conditioning, a library, a TV room, a games room, the sea and more.
