Drug and Alcohol Abuse Can Devastate All Aspects of an Individual’s Life
Substance abuse treatment is available that can help you to get your life back on track and deal with underlying issues that cause substance abuse. Detox is the initial stage of substance addiction treatment that serves to remove the addictive substance from the body. The process is a critical part of preparing an individual to begin the therapies that will help them to manage cravings and learn new skills for healthy living.
UNDERSTANDING THE PROCESS
What Exactly is Detox?
Detox is the process through which addictive substances are removed from the body by stopping the use of the substance. Then, natural body processes can begin to eliminate the substance and return the body to its normal chemical balance. Detox is the initial step in an addiction treatment program. Only when the individual has removed the substance from his or her body and stops the continued use of it, can treatment therapies begin to work. However, detox can be difficult, causing a variety of severe symptoms. Many individuals have tried to stop using alcohol or drugs on their own, only to be faced with withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, joint pain, muscle pain, increased heart rate, sweating, tremors, seizures, and other problems. Because the detox process causes such severe symptoms, individuals may avoid substance abuse treatment. But Sherwood Detox offers assisted detox, in exclusively private rooms, to help with symptoms, to allow clients to detox more comfortably.
