Detox

Before drug and alcohol rehabilitation can take place, the person who is using must flush the abused substance, or substances, from their system - that process is detoxification, or "detoxing". Just as many popular diets include a detox phase, where the body is purged of toxins, waste or fats and replaced with healthier foods supplemented by a regimen of exercise, alcohol and drug detox aims to cleanse the body of harmful substances.

Medically-assisted detoxification often includes administration of Buprenorphine or Naltrexone to ease the transition into a drug-free life, lessening the pain and discomfort of withdrawal symptoms.

Because of the dangers of detoxing alone, it is always recommended to do so with a professional treatment center or service provider. If you, a family member or someone you care for are looking to get clean and sober, please take care to do your detox properly.
