The purpose of drug detox is to address the physical side of an addiction/dependence. It prepares patients to address the psychological aspects of their addiction, as part of a comprehensive addiction rehab program.
WHY IS DETOX NECESSARY?
Drug detox is a crucial first step in addiction treatment. It’s the process by which drugs are removed from the body, to ensure that we’re physically stable and ready to start therapy.
After using or abusing drugs for an extended period of time, our body and brain become accustomed to having a certain level those drugs present. We function normally when they are in our system, and we feel out of balance (sick) when they are decreased or removed.
The purpose of detox is to completely cleanse our body of drugs and their toxins, so that we can return to functioning normally without them. Once we’re physically stable, can we move on to the next step - addressing the psychological aspect of our addiction in a rehabilitation program.CONTACT US
DRUG WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS AND TIMELINE
Withdrawal from drugs is different for everyone. The exact withdrawal time will depend on two main factors - The particular substance/s the person is using, and the degree of their dependence on those substances. For some people, withdrawal will last only a few days, while for others with extreme cases, it could be as long as a few months.
