What is a Substance Abuse Detox Center?
The sad truth is that most attempts at escaping addiction never make it beyond the detox stage. It isn’t so much the actual discomfort that is the problem, but knowing that it would be so easy to escape this discomfort with a fix. If you were dealing with flu symptoms, you would probably just get on with things because you know you have no other choice. What makes withdrawals so much harder is you know you have a choice.
If you can make it through this first major hurdle, you can greatly increase the likelihood of achieving lasting recovery from addiction. If you have any questions about withdrawal or detox, call 866.412.1971.
Detox is a process that rids the body of drugs, alcohol, and any other harmful chemical substance. Because this can be an extremely harmful and dangerous process, it is best that it is done under the supervision of medically-trained detoxification specialists.
