Detox is the first step in the recovery journey for many people. Before treatment can begin, it is vital to rid the body of substances that it is dependent on. However, in many cases, it is vital that the detoxification process be monitored because it can lead to multiple complications during withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms can be both physical and psychological. Physical symptoms can range from vomiting, heart palpitations, and muscle aches to heart attacks, seizures, and strokes. Psychological symptoms can range from depression and anxiety to hallucinations.
While it is impossible to avoid all the symptoms that come with detoxing, you can keep yourself safe. Monitored detox will be less overwhelming and will help your road to recovery begin as stress-free as possible.
