Stimulants may have serious, long-lasting ramifications such as anxiety, paranoia, depression, or dependence. Thus individuals must understand the effects of these drugs before deciding whether to use them or not. Being aware of their potential consequences allows people to make informed choices and protect their health in the process.
What Are Stimulants?
Stimulants are drugs that stimulate the body’s central nervous system; they can increase focus, alertness, and energy. In a medical context, stimulants are often used to treat an attention-deficit disorder or as part of a weight-loss program. There are two types of stimulants: legal and illegal. Legal stimulants include caffeine in energy drinks and other beverages, while illegal stimulants include cocaine and methamphetamine.
Stimulants have both short-term and long-term effects on users depending on the type of drug. Short-term effects may include increased mental alertness, improved concentration, and heightened aggression levels. Longer-term effects could result in anxiety, depression, paranoia, or addiction. People need to be aware of the impact that stimulating drugs may have on their health so that they can make informed decisions when considering whether to use them or not.
Deciding to seek treatment for substance abuse and addiction is not easy but it can prove to be beneficial for you and your loved ones in the long run. After we assess your mental health, you will need to begin the process of detoxing from the stimulant that you’ve been using. While this step of recovery can often be difficult, our team of specialized professionals is here to guide and support you every step of the way.
Managing a co-occurring disorder while abstaining from stimulants can be a challenging experience. Without the desired effects, managing cravings and regulating emotions might come with difficulty. Maintaining sobriety and seeking treatment are both long but rewarding processes that can provide relief and improved quality of life.
Guided by caring clinicians, you can trust us to manage your detox safely so that you can move forward in recovery with ease.
At Valiant Detox, we understand the importance of quality medical care and comfort while recovering from co-occurring disorders. Once we assess your mental health, our staff is dedicated to providing a safe environment for your detox and treatment. We have individual bedrooms and bathrooms that offer privacy and security, allowing patients to focus all their energy on the healing process.
Our team of knowledgeable specialists is here to support you along the entire journey and provide the necessary help for a full recovery. Offering must-have amenities such as private spaces and comprehensive care put us above others in our field, trimming down the healing process significantly.
Recovering from addiction is a long process, and at Valiant Detox, we understand that your mental health can play a major role in the success of your recovery. We specialize in helping individuals assess their mental health issues – whether they have been caused by an addiction or if they are the underlying cause of an addiction.
Our staff will take time to get to know you, develop a personalized treatment plan, and provide all the necessary care and support necessary to ensure you gain a clear understanding of your personal mental health needs so that your recovery can begin.

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.
