Why is Detox Needed?
There are a few different instances in which detox is needed. For starters, often when a person comes into a medical facility in the process of an overdose, either fatal or otherwise, the medical staff will assess what drugs or alcohol is in their system and will then choose the appropriate course for treatment and short term detox. This is not a permanent fix and is generally going to be a short term fix to get the person ready for long term or inpatient treatment. This type of detox is best for those that are getting ready to go to another treatment facility and need some help getting clean enough so that they can continue on to another form of treatment.
Long term detox is generally needed for a severe addiction to drugs and alcohol. For the most part, short term detox is needed to get someone sober enough to continue on to further treatment while long term detox is to completely remove the substance from the body and from the system. Detox is entirely necessary as you cannot break the cycle of addiction on your own. It takes more than just will power to break the cycle of addiction, often medical help, psychiatric help, and the support and love of those around you is needed in order to fully recover from addiction.

What to Expect During Detoxification from Drugs + Alcohol
There are tons of different things to keep in mind when it comes to detoxing and the detox process. Knowing what to expect is part of the process and can make signing up for drug and alcohol treatment easier. The detox process is different for each person and for each different drug or alcohol addiction.
Though it might seem like detoxing is simply discontinuing use of a drug or alcohol and that is it, it is a much more involved process. Pairing with detoxing is often withdrawal. Withdrawal is the physical and emotional effects that your body goes through after you discontinue use of drugs or alcohol. There are a range of physical symptoms of withdrawal to look for. Things like sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, confusion and more are all possible when a person is coming down off of a drug of alcohol bender.
These physical symptoms can last days, even weeks and can be incredibly physically taxing process and can leave people feeling incredibly drained. Paired with the physical symptoms of withdrawal, there are also mental symptoms to keep in mind. Things like feelings of guilt, inadequacy, rage, and sadness can also be highly prevalent and make recovery harder. These emotional issues can hang on for months and can even resurface years later making it necessary for follow up treatment.
Because withdrawal is such an intense and draining process, it is something that needs to be medically supervised and taken care of in a medical facility. Withdrawal can be fatal if not supervised properly by a medical professional. Since there are so many different medicines used to help monitor and aid in detox like Suboxone, Subutex, Vivitrol, and Naltrexone, it is important that detox be monitored at every stage.
