Addiction to Designer Drugs

Designer drugs, especially those available on the street, are growing in prevalence and thus leading to an increased number of people becoming addicted. This addiction is taking a serious toll on society, both physically and mentally.

What Are Designer Drugs?

Designer drugs are synthetic substances that have been artificially engineered to mimic the effects of traditional recreational or medical drugs. Commonly available in a variety of formats, including powders, pills, and liquids, these drugs tend to be favored by users for their ability to produce a high that is often more intense than other forms of illicit substance.

These dangerous chemical substances are frequently used for recreational purposes and are created to mimic the effects of traditional illicit drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, and fentanyl. Although they may be marketed as being safer than other more traditional forms of drug use, designer drugs can be extremely risky because most of them have not been tested for safety and their precise chemical makeup is also unknown. This lack of knowledge can lead to potentially life-threatening side effects because these compounds can have unpredictable side effects that may not take effect until it is too late. 

Unfortunately, designer drug use often leads to addiction with severe short and long-term consequences. Effects can range from impaired thinking and decision-making abilities, decreased libido, aches and pains throughout the body, as well as an increased desire for more of the drug to experience a similar pleasure.



Facing addiction and substance abuse can be intimidating but the long-term benefits to you and your family are invaluable. After a thorough analysis of your mental health, it is critical to detoxify from any designer drugs that have been used. Although this step in recovery will not always be easy, our team of experienced professionals will help guide you through each stage along the way.

Withdrawing from designer drugs while managing a dual diagnosis can be an overwhelming endeavor. Without the sensations that were once prompted by drug use, feelings of intense craving and drastic mood fluctuations may become unbearable. However difficult it may be, seeking help and treatment are necessary steps to achieve mental balance and significantly improve your overall quality of life.

With the trust of clinicians, we will ensure that your detoxification process is secure and safe so that you can move forward in recovery with assurance.

We’ve put together a list of commonly asked questions to help shed some light on the experience and ease any lingering fears or anxieties you may have.

Our goal is to ensure that the detoxification process is as smooth and comfortable as possible for our guests. Medical care is available 24/7 and we utilize a variety of therapies, activities and treatments to promote a positive, healthy experience. These include daily activities, individual and group therapy, holistic approaches, medication maintenance and more, scheduled in such a way that is ideal for patient recovery. The goal is to maintain a daily balance that isn’t too hectic or overwhelming, nor so relaxed that guests get bored. Patients also receive a certain amount of personal freedom and independence; we are not a hospital or psychiatric ward and clients are not locked in. Our facility strives to create an inviting, home-like environment for a safe and comfortable experience. At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, our patients are our guests and we treat them as such.

On average, detox lasts about five days but can range from three to 10 days. Detox varies from patient to patient and you or your loved one’s exact length of stay depends on a variety of factors, such as: the substance(s) they have used, the amount of substance(s) they have used, the length of time they have been using the substance(s), frequency of use and the route of administration can all determine just how long they need to be in our care.

At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, we understand that detox alone isn’t a long-term solution for treating addiction. It is just one intervention method of many for changing a substance-abusing lifestyle into a clean-and-sober one. For this reason, we work very hard to help each individual develop an appropriate plan for formal chemical dependency treatment, whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis, at the time of their discharge.

Having a plan set up prior to detox would be ideal to help ensure that appropriate treatment is secured in advance, but things don’t always work out this way. Unfortunately, relapses and addiction rarely happen at logical or convenient times and leave little opportunity to set up a plan before entering detox. In this case, we work closely with the patient and their family to develop a post-detox plan and organize the next phase of recovery. This often involves coordinating treatment around work and family responsibilities, considering issues such as motivation, commitment or denial, and untangling financial or insurance limitations. While these decisions are never easy, they are done in order to promote the best chance at achieving long-term recovery and support the individual and their family as they work toward a life free of drugs or alcohol.

Detox is a difficult time for both the individual participating in the detox program and their family, who are separated from them during the process. At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, we want you to feel comfortable knowing that your loved one is in a safe place during this difficult time and is being cared for appropriately with nothing but compassion and support. Although you may feel the need to be in contact or see them during this process, we firmly believe that detox is most effective when there are as few distractions as possible. This allows patients to focus on healing and gives them time to consider their next steps. Throughout the process, a staff member will be in contact with you to provide you with updates, progress reports and more. Our compassionate team will also be available to coach, support and advise you, so you’re better prepared to help your loved one make important decisions regarding their future and provide the guidance, encouragement and empathy they need at this time.

The first 24 hours of detox are often spent resting and recuperating. During this time, patients will have access to a phone and will be able to make a check-in call and provide a progress update. You will be able to provide encouragement and remind your loved one of the importance of what they’re doing, but after this period, it’s important that they focus on themselves and begin the healing process. Detox is a time for patients to take a step back from their lives so they can reconnect with their inner selves and engage in active self-reflection and self-care. Since the time in detox may last for three to 10 days, we recognize the importance of each precious minute we spend with our patients. Visitation may take away from the short amount of time available and interfere with program participation, so we believe it’s important to establish healthy boundaries and spend this time apart. For these reasons, visitation isn’t allowed during the detox phase of treatment, but a staff member will be in regular contact to keep you up-to-date.
