Detox: The first step to a clean life
When addicts stop taking their substance of choice, they often experience uncomfortable or dangerous withdrawal symptoms. They may be unable to sleep at night because their thoughts keep racing, or unable to attend work or social activities due to severe nausea. Withdrawal from some substances like alcohol and benzodiazepines even put individuals at risk of death or serious brain damage.
Many addicts are afraid to quit because the first step — withdrawal — is so daunting. Thankfully detox treatment can help with these problems. Detoxification treatment is one way in which these withdrawal symptoms can be mitigated — if not outright eliminated.
What is detox treatment?
Detoxification treatment — or detox treatment— is the process of eliminating harmful and poisonous substances from the body.

- Illicit drugs
