The recovery process for those entering drug or alcohol treatment programs normally begins with detoxification.
Whenever a substance has been abused often enough, long enough — and this varies greatly from individual to individual — the body must detoxify.
Most addicts and alcoholics have experienced the symptoms of detox to some degree whenever they’ve been abstinent for even a short period of time.
But as the disease progresses, so does the severity of the withdrawal. These symptoms can be physically and mentally painful. They can also be quite serious. Delirium tremens, which may occur in cases of alcoholics who suddenly stop drinking, is a potentially fatal condition. Physician-supervised, inpatient detox is always the best choice.
Medications are carefully dispensed to ease symptoms. Patients are kept comfortable and pleasant amenities are usually available.
