Are drugs and alcohol destroying your life? Are your relationships, finances, and career suffering because of your addiction? If you are being crushed under the burden of substance dependency, it’s time to learn about the detox methods and rehab programs that can finally free you.
What Is Detox?
Detoxification, or detox, is a term that describes the process of body purification that occurs when someone stops using alcohol or other substances. The experience of alcohol and drug detox varies from person to person. It depends on factors such as the substances you used and the length of your addiction.
Many people find the withdrawal process to be extremely uncomfortable and even painful. In fact, choosing to detox and go “cold turkey” at home can be dangerous and even deadly. For this reason, addiction treatment professionals often recommend that detox methods take place under medical supervision.
Detox Methods Have Three Components
Purifying your body after a period of severe addiction is a difficult and complex process that varies from person to person. That is why it’s often tailored to suit each individual’s needs. Nevertheless, detox usually has three common components:
Evaluation: During this thorough process, you will receive a complete physical examination that includes blood tests to determine how much of the substance is in your bloodstream. Furthermore, you will meet with mental health professionals to assess your psychological health. You and your team do all of this initial hard work so that you can come up with the optimal long-term plan to conquer your addiction.
Stabilization: The goal during this time is to minimize any withdrawal symptoms or physical harm during the detox process. This typically includes using psychological therapy and medical intervention.
Preparation: Detox is only the beginning. It’s virtually useless unless you follow it with a long-term drug and alcohol addiction treatment program. This should be your next step if you truly want to recover and put your addiction behind you once and for all.
