Drug Detox (Detoxification) is a method to flush all the toxins and unwanted substances from the body while offering care for the consequential withdrawal symptoms. It is a metabolic process by which toxins and harmful materials are converted into less toxic and extractable substances. It can be understood as a process of internal cleaning that improves and optimizes the body’s functioning.
Drug Detox is the initial step of any comprehensive drug rehab program. The objective of any drug detox program is physiological healing after long-standing drug obsession. A medically-supervised detox is considered as a highly effective treatment. It is proven to help improve recovery and help avoid future relapse. According to SAMHSA, alcohol, heroin, opiates, cocaine, marijuana, etc are the major substances responsible for detox admissions.
