WHAT IS DETOX?
Detoxification, or detox, is the process of letting the body remove the drugs in it.
The purpose of detox is to safely manage withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking drugs or alcohol.
Everyone has a different experience with detox. The type of drug and how long it was used affect what detox will be like.
Medications used in detox help keep former users comfortable while the drugs leave their body.
It can take days or months to get through withdrawal symptoms for most drugs. The length of withdrawal depends on a number of factors, including:
Type of substance used
Duration an addiction has lasted
The severity of the addiction
Method of abuse (snorting, smoking, injecting, or swallowing)
The amount of a substance the user takes at one time
Underlying mental health conditions
