Drug and Alcohol Detox
Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal is a serious condition that occurs rapidly and if not treated correctly, it could become life threatening. This is why a safe and secure detox program is the most important start to treating your addiction. Detox centers are designed to provide patients with support they need to not only detox from drugs and alcohol, but also to begin to live a clean and sober life. The right detox program can help you through your physical withdrawal symptoms and provide you with the medical assistance you need during this rough time.
Why Quitting on Your Own is Harmful?
The severity of the effects of self-detox will differ depending on the individual’s history of abuse and medical/physical conditions. However, the risks of detox for all severe drug and alcohol users are dangerous enough that a detox should never be attempted alone. A sudden stop of drug and alcohol use can lead to seizures, heart attacks, strokes, and in severe cases even death.
