Drug Detoxification Process


The integral first steps in defining an individual's drug treatment plan are the drug detoxification and withdrawal processes. Having some time without drug use is significant in bringing addicts to a balanced state of mind because the effects of drugs on the brain usually justify the further use and alter otherwise rational thoughts.

Users can clear their heads and consider their further treatment plans while detox process lasts. The principle behind this is to nudge the person into recognizing that they have an addiction and to increase the use of the drug as well.


The detox period is termed as the window of opportunity for people in both medical and personal conflict or crisis to seek further help or treatment in accordance to TIP 45 on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, SAMHSA.


Detoxification - What Is It?

SAMHSA defines detoxification as a sequence of interventions that are created to control withdrawal symptoms and serious intoxication. Detox, which is a precursor for substance abuse treatment, can last a few days or for a longer period such as months depending on the severity of the addiction among other factors. Alcohol Rehab Isle of Wight has detox experts who can offer assistance in efficiently treating withdrawal signs and have you enrolled in a treatment programme which is customised to align with your needs.
