Detoxification


Detoxification

Escapism is a common habit of those who cannot find the courage to face life’s daily challenges. Most turn to drugs and alcohol as an instant solution to their problems, but these individuals soon realize that they have only exacerbated or added onto their existing problems by doing so. Once alcohol and drug users come to this realization, many will try to quit “cold turkey” in an attempt to curb addiction only to realize that it is not that simple.

Detoxification is a complex process because once addicts’ bodies get accustomed to the presence of a substance in the system, its sudden removal can cause a number of symptoms that can be so overwhelming that it can push an individual to consume alcohol and drugs to ease their discomfort or pain. These symptoms are more known as withdrawal symptoms, and every alcohol or drug abuser knows that these are the most challenging to face in the process of addiction treatment.

The First Step In Recovery

Detoxification is the first step in addiction treatment, and this first step is usually the most difficult. It is difficult for both addicts and addiction treatment specialists because the withdrawal symptoms that arise during the detoxification process will vary depending on an addict’s lifestyle, overall health, and substance of choice. Even an experienced addiction treatment specialist cannot definitely predict what symptoms one will suffer when quitting alcohol or drugs, but suddenly stopping the consumption of these substances will always cause unpleasant symptoms. The most common alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms include vomiting, sleeplessness, fatigue, anxiety, emotional volatility, irritability, and depression.

Successful addiction treatment can only be guaranteed when the chances of a relapse are reduced to almost zero. This is why it is important to address the dependence of addicts on alcohol and drugs early on. Detoxification will make sure that alcoholics and addicts have a fighting chance in their battle against addiction.
