Detoxification is the process by which toxins are removed from a person’s body. Individuals will be assessed for the need for this process upon admission.
Detoxification from drugs, alcohol or both is usually the first step in the addiction recovery process. It is necessary to detox the body of all substances before beginning addiction treatment.
Withdrawal symptoms are to be expected, and depending on the severity of the situation, they can be painful and intense. In order to make clients feel as comfortable as possible, safe and appropriate medications are administered during detox.
