What is detoxification?
Detoxification is the elimination of any drugs or alcohol from the body under a controlled setting in order to ease the symptoms of withdrawal. Withdrawal from alcohol and benzodiazepines can be life threatening and withdrawal from opioids can be incredibly painful, therefore many treatment centers will administer medications to the client to help ease the side effects of withdrawal. Alcohol and drug detoxification is the first step in treating an individual with a substance abuse disorder and depending on the specific drug of abuse and the length of duration of use, the detoxification process can last a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
