Nov. 17, 2010 - PRLog -- New Mexico has an abundance of natural minerals, is blessed with abundant sunlight which means a thriving non-renewable energy products industry, other manufacturing industries and also livestock plus agriculture which all add to the state’s prosperity. Along with industrialization came migrant labor of all ethnicities and drugs were not far behind. So we have a surge in addiction in New Mexico. Wittingly or unwittingly an individual is drawn into addiction over a period of time. One may assume that he enjoys each experience and looks forward to it. Or he may be an unwilling slave long after the euphoria has passed and wishes to stop but, unfortunately, cannot since the drug has a hold over his mind and body and dictates his thoughts and actions. The habit becomes a dependency that controls one’s life and decisions. It becomes very difficult for the drug addict to leave the habit. A stage does indeed come in most addicts’ lives when they outgrow their habit and wish to stop and this is the time when he is ripe for treatment at a suitable center which will extract him from his condition.

Almost any drug treatment center in New Mexico is capable of treating most drug addicts since they have to be fully equipped to deal with all kinds of drug addictions in order to maintain their place in the market. They have qualified staff and best team of doctors to check the physical, mental, and psychological impairments of the patient and treat them accordingly. Drug treatment center in New Mexico is famous for the efficacy of their treatments as attested by numerous people who are now leading a recovered life.

The all too vital process of recovery starts with detoxification, or detox in short. This is the first important step which defines the beginning of recovery and is the acid or litmus test for the addict in his resolve to stay committed to a sober life. Detox indicates flushing out toxins from the body which will also help clear the mind. Detox can only be achieved if intake of poisons in the form of drugs or alcohol is stopped totally. This is a pre-requisite for detox at any good drug treatment center in New Mexico.

Detox is initiated and along with his a nutritious diet based mostly on fruits and vegetables, with no caffeine or fried foods or starches. It is known that a suitable mix of fruits and vegetables help in curbing cravings which will inevitably result when the addict stops taking drugs. When detox starts it will be under medical supervision so that the effects of withdrawal can be observed and controlled with the help of suitable drugs. Modern medicines help in alleviating pain and affecting the brain so that the withdrawal induced discomforts do not bother him too much and cravings are reduced. Depending on the severity of addiction detox lasts from 3 to 10 days.

Plenty of rest, good wholesome food in small portions but at regular intervals, say about 5 times a  day will help him remain energized but calm. The first few days at the drug treatment center in New Mexico will be terribly hard to bear with the mind constantly beset by overwhelming need for drugs. But later on these urges subside and after a week or so he will be tolerably clear of mind, rid of the compulsion and able to sustain a day without drugs. He is in a state of remission, ready for further treatments  which will cement  and concretize this recovery for life.

As a matter of interest some centers follow the nature cure therapy for detox. This calls for extreme will power on the part of the patient since he will have no access to any medicines to help him tolerate pain. Nature cure relies on colonic cleansing, fasting, plenty of hot water immersions, sauna baths and massages. All these help in ridding the body of toxins. Extreme detox comprises of the patient being deprived of all solid food for a week. He will have to subsist simply on boiled extracts of vegetables and herbs which are specifically selected for their cleansing properties and rejuvenating properties. He will gradually take on fruit juices too but no solid food till a week while he undergoes all the process stated above. He will have to drink copious amounts of water. Faster and flushing by water and herbs means even those stubborn wastes are excreted and the person actually comes out of it clear of mind and light of step.  These centers then follow up detox with a therapy based on meditation which unifies the mind-body-soul dimensions of a human into a single unified and strong whole. This practice of meditation will remain a constant in life after the rehab too.
At traditional drug treatment center in New Mexico he will follow the route of counseling, interactive group therapy, social skill acquisition, cognitive behavior therapy which form a part of the treatment mix resulting in a recovery that stays for life.

Whichever path he opts for after detox, recovery, however, begins here.
