An Overview of Detox

Receiving detoxification care off drugs and alcohol, begins the recovery from addiction. Detox washes the body of all toxic chemicals produced by drugs and alcohol. During the cleansing process, the body experiences withdrawal symptoms. Of course, withdrawal symptoms do vary depending on the person and on the substance abused. Likewise, symptoms depend on the length of time and amount of substance abused. Irrespective of the withdrawal severity, medical supervision is critical. When detox goes unsupervised it poses the potential for life-threatening complications, whereas utilizing medical treatment and supervision may prevent such complications.

Detoxification grants the body time to recuperate. Additionally, it allows any physical factors impacted and weakened by substance to build back strength. Whether substance abuse was short or long-term, when detoxification begins the body is forced into symptoms of withdrawal. Accordingly, managing the symptoms through medication can mitigate the symptoms if desired. However, medication management should only be dispensed and observed by certified medical professionals. Although medication eases unpleasant physiological, emotional and psychological symptoms as well as potentially prevents relapse, detox exclusively does not treat addiction.
