Daybreak has been extremely beneficial in my recovery process. The staff, many of whom are in recovery themselves, have shown me repeatedly that they genuinely care about me and all the other clients here. This fact, combined with their knowledge on the recovery process, has benefited me more than any other treatment center in the past. My counselor, Holly, has been especially helpful to me. I would absolutely recommend Daybreak to a friend or anyone struggling with addiction.

Kyle M.

I cannot say enough about this place! Daybreak saved my life! From the minute I walked in the door I was treated with respect, dignity, and a compassion I had never experienced in any of the many other treatment facilities I had been to. What made the difference for me was the staff. The people who worked there truly cared about me and my recovery. There honestly was never a moment that I felt alone and the fact that many of the staff are in recovery themselves meant they truly understood what I was going through at my most vulnerable. Knowing these people were so invested in saving me from myself, were always there if I needed to talk, and that they honestly cared about me and my recovery undoubtedly made all the difference for me. Daybreak also maintains a family atmosphere in such beautiful facilities and makes sure that your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs are being met. I’ve never had such an amazing experience in treatment before. If you or a loved one is suffering please PLEASE let Daybreak give you the opportunity to get your life back.

What is Detox Like?

Going through drug detox at an addiction treatment center is the best environment for you or one of your loved ones to complete this important step in recovery.  Opioid detox, cocaine detox, and alcohol detox, among many other substances, can cause serious withdrawal symptoms and by being in an inpatient treatment program there will be people to help get through the process.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

During drug detox, a person will experience withdrawal effects specific to the substance that they have been abusing. Most if not all people struggling with substance use disorders will begin to develop withdrawal symptoms soon after they stop using or drinking.  Drug treatment center staff members at DayBreak are well prepared to help anyone going through withdrawal as they begin down the road to recovery. 

Symptoms of Detox by Drug Type

Each type of addictive substance has its one set of withdrawal effects.  At our inpatient treatment centers, we are able to mitigate the severeness of these symptoms for our clients through a variety of techniques. Our exceptional substance abuse treatment staff are always there to support our clients with encouragement through the tough times, too.

Opioids (Heroin)

Opioid detox can cause an individual several severe withdrawal symptom and although it is always better to go through the process in an inpatient treatment center for anyone struggling with substance use disorders, we highly recommend residential care for opioid addiction treatment.  Symptoms of opioid withdrawal include anxiety, nausea, vomiting, fast heart rate or abdominal pain. While symptoms can be severe, they aren’t life-threatening.

Stimulants (Cocaine, Meth, etc.)

Cocaine detox, among other types of stimulants, can cause a wide variety of symptoms.  Anyone struggling with substance use disorders will feel the need to use again once they stop, but this category of drugs in particular causes Intense cravings.  Additionally, individuals can have difficulty sleeping, loss of cognitive functions, extreme mood swings, chills, body aches, tremors, and fatigue.

Bath Salts

Drug addicts are often looking for new ways to get high and some have turned to designer drugs, including in the bath salts category.  Some of the symptoms people experience when they go through withdrawal syndrome are lethargy, fatigue, depression, anxiety, slow thinking, feelings of foggy-headedness, nightmares, muscle aches, suicidal thoughts, and the inability to focus.


Over the years, the misconception that marijuana is not addictive has continued to spread. The fact is that marijuana can be addictive, and if you stop using it, you may experience withdrawal effects.  Some withdrawal symptoms are diminished appetite, mood changes, irritability and sleep difficulties.

DXM/Cough Syrup

Someone using dextromethorphan or DXM as directed will most likely not become addicted and will not experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop using the medication. When someone is using this over-the-counter medication to get high, when they stop, bone or muscle aches. Other signs and symptoms of dextromethorphan withdrawal include cold flashes, diarrhea, and vomiting symptoms.


Ecstasy, also referred to as Molly or MDMA is a party drug that has been used by millions of people around the globe.  The drug is not highly addictive, but prolonged use can result in dependence and withdrawal symptoms when a long-time user stops taking the substance.  Withdrawal symptoms during drug detox can include fatigue, depression, panic attacks, irritability, and anxiety.


Opioid detox programs have now had to add Fentanyl to the substances that they treat.  Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.  Withdrawal symptoms people experience during opioid detox from Fentanyl include bone, joint, and muscular pain and spasms, insomnia and anxiety and excessive sweating and runny nose.


There are substances in the hallucinogens category that we treat at our drug rehab centers that do not result in withdrawal symptoms.  However, PCP and others can produce effects during drug detox that include depressed breathing, convulsions, rapid heart rate, and extreme changes in body temperature.


Oxycodone Is another substance we treat patients for at our alcohol and drug inpatient rehab facilities.  It is in the opioid family and is often prescribed in combination with other medications.  When you stop taking Oxycodone and begin opioid detox, some of the things you will experience are increased heart rate, body aches and pains, irritability, poor concentration, mood swings, and the inability to feel pleasure.

Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs is a very large category of substances that can be abused in multiple ways and the withdrawal symptoms can vary greatly, from changes in your mood to gastrointestinal issues to sleeplessness and restlessness.

Acute Detox

Acute detox at a drug and alcohol rehab in Trenton is designed for people facing more severe withdrawal symptoms who need more medical intervention during the drug detox process.  This form of medical detox is available at a DayBreak drugs and alcohol recovery center.

Sub-Acute Detox

Sub-acute detox at a drug and alcohol rehab center is less intensive than acute drug detox but is still supported by staff members in an inpatient treatment setting.
