Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol on your own can be extremely difficult and dangerous. Depending on the severity of your use, life-threatening symptoms like heart palpitations and seizures can occur. A medical detox program is a safe and effective way to withdraw from these substances, with a lowered risk for complications and a team of medical professionals to help you feel as comfortable as possible.

If you live in Maryland, the medical detox center at TruHealing Baltimore is one of the most effective detox options in the area. Reach out to our team at 833.782.2241 or connect with us online to learn more about our drug and alcohol detox center.

What to Expect During Withdrawal

Withdrawal is a set of symptoms that can result when you stop or reduce regular drug or alcohol use. The symptoms are uncomfortable and can be physical, emotional, and/or psychological. How long the symptoms last depends on the severity of a person’s use, how long they used, and other individual factors. Different substances also have different withdrawal symptoms and timelines.


Withdrawal symptoms vary. However, some of the most common symptoms, regardless of the substance, include:


  • Sudden mood swings
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Muscle pain and tension
  • Changes in appetite and sleeping patterns

What Is Medical Detox?

Medical detox is when you receive medical supervision during the withdrawal process. Withdrawing from certain substances, such as alcohol and opioids, can cause severe symptoms like seizures and high blood pressure.


During addiction, drugs and alcohol interfere with a person’s ability to make rational and logical decisions. This often causes people to engage in risky and dangerous behavior that they otherwise would never consider. As a person’s tolerance begins to build, more and more of a particular substance is required. This can lead to financial woes and relationship strife. Addiction can also prevent people from working and supporting their families, increasing depression and mental health problems. A medical detox center helps individuals start to break free from addiction and its consequences.

The Benefits of a Medical Detox Program

Medical detox is the first step to lasting recovery. Some of the benefits of a medical detox center include:


  • Safety – For anyone with long-term dependency, withdrawal symptoms could be life-threatening. Having supervision while detoxing keeps you safe.
  • Supervision – Our staff of medical professionals will constantly monitor you, so that if there is any kind of medical emergency, they can help.
  • Medication Adjustments – If the TruHealing Baltimore team feels that your medication needs to be adjusted, they can quickly do so. Sometimes, they can customize your treatment by the minute.
  • Reduced pain – Our team can administer medications that ease withdrawal symptoms, lessening the painful side effects.
  • Increased chance of recovery – Staying in a detox facility and getting completely clean sets a good foundation for the rest of your recovery.

Stacy Decker
Director of Operations

I joined the team at TruHealing Hagerstown in 2020. Before starting my current position, I worked as an administrator in outpatient surgical care, and then joined an ambulatory surgery center development company as Regional Director.  I enjoy using my medical background and business knowledge—in conjunction with my personal experiences in recovery—to encourage and support clients seeking treatment.

Abstinence and recovery are an integral part of my life. Being able to help other people who are suffering with a substance use disorder has been a blessing. TruHealing Hagerstown is the only inpatient facility in our community to help people suffering with substance use disorders. It’s incredibly rewarding to give back to my community.

Staci Decker is the Director of Operations at TruHealing Baltimore. 


As we continue to grow Amatus Health, the need to stay competitive and differentiate ourselves in unique ways is crucial. Building creative approaches to reach more people will take our company to new heights. This is why I am pleased to announce that we are officially rebranding. Our new national name, TruHealing Addiction & Mental Health Treatment, will eventually replace Amatus Recovery Centers.

You may be asking, “Why are we doing this?” This new name will give us national uniformity and help brand ourselves as a whole, which will be done in phases. You will still see our existing facility names co-branded with TruHealing for the time being.

Healing is what we do. Everyone who comes through our doors is in a moment of profound struggle in their lives. We support them through a life-changing process of healing and recovery, and they leave our facilities changed. This new name is a representation of that process. As mentioned above, it also allows us to have a national brand, which will make us a recognizable name in the addiction and mental health field.

In summation, these changes present an excellent opportunity for our organization to develop our mission, vision, and purpose. I look forward to prosperous growth as we head in a new and positive direction.
