The decision to attend a drug or alcohol detox program is the very first step of the addiction treatment and recovery process. Detoxification centers provide medical stabilization which can then be followed with the treatment and rehabilitation at a addiction treatment center. Alcohol and other drug detoxification  programs provide the foundation for a full recovery from addiction.

Statistics show that people who attend a detox program prior to continuing residential treatment for drug or alcohol addiction are more likely to successfully recover and to maintain long term sobriety. Drug detoxification is a fundamental component to the recovery process. Detox centers provide a range of effective detoxification services to help transition from drug addiction to sobriety.

The methods

Drug and alcohol detox programs provide a safe place for medical professionals to eliminate drugs or alcohol from the body. The most common types of drug/alcohol detox include sub acute detox, medical detox, rapid detox, and natural detox.


Each of these types of detoxification programs differ in the way that withdrawal symptoms are handled. Some detox centers will provide medications to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal while others will only provide medical intervention when absolutely necessary.

The path to recovery and sober living begins with safely detoxing from drugs and alcohol. Quitting the use of drugs or alcohol can be dangerous and is not advisable to be taken on alone. Detox centers can help minimize and manage the symptoms.
