Detoxing without medication and monitoring can be dangerous, especially if you have been using alcohol or benzodiazepines. Some of these dangers can include seizures and even death. Even if you are not at risk, you may feel extremely sick or very uncomfortable, which significantly increase your risk of relapse and cause you to start drinking or using drugs again. It is often much safer and more comfortable to detox in a medical setting. Please do speak with an addiction treatment professional to determine what will be the best detox plan for you.
Board-certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, healthcare specialists, and licensed clinicians of the highest caliber provide you with the medical and clinical support you need during this stage in your recovery.
