What is detox? It is an important first step on the road to recovery. During detox, the body will rid itself of drugs and alcohol.
As the substance leaves the brain and the body, withdrawal symptoms may occur. Physical symptoms include: increased sensitivity to pain, sweating, body aches, shortness of breath, tremors, and nausea. Emotional and psychological symptoms include: cravings, mood swings, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and depression.
Detox treatments vary in length of time, depending on the type of drug, level of abuse, and the individual. Detox can be difficult. It should be done under the supervision of a medical professional. Aside from detoxification, successful detox treatments include counseling.
