Alcohol and Drug
Abstaining from drugs and alcohol is the first thing that must occur to begin the recovery process from addiction. However, for many that suffer from addiction to
just stop is not only difficult, it is sometimes dangerous. Many that are addicted have experienced unpleasant, painful withdrawal symptoms at some point during the course of their disease and a great deal of time is devoted to avoiding painful withdrawal
symptoms at all cost. So it comes as no surprise that the idea of “detoxification” is the last thing many are willing to consider. However, medical options exist and are accessible for those that want to begin the recovery process, remain sober,
and return to a healthy lifestyle.
Detox is the process by which withdrawal symptoms are medically managed in
a hospital setting. It can be dangerous to suddenly stop using alcohol or some drugs without proper medical support, especially for individuals who have been using for a long period of time. Detox makes the process of withdrawal more comfortable, thereby improving
the odds for a successful recovery.
