Anybody who has suffered through an alcohol or drug addiction can tell
you the worst part is the detoxification process. The disease of
addiction can lead to physical and mental illness and even death if not
treated properly. Detoxification also known as “cold turkey” is often a
horrible, even painful forced abstinence from one’s poison of choice.
Urgent cravings, cramps, fever, and queasiness are some of the symptoms
an addict might experience during the withdrawal period. The
detoxication process should always be undertaken in a proper facility
for the safety of the individual and be observed by medical
professionals to insure expert treatment is rendered.
Choosing a facility for detoxification and rehab is a critical decision.
When choosing a facility certain concerns must be addressed. Distance
from areas where drugs can be obtained is very important, as is a
private location with a stress free peaceful environment. Just these two
factors alone contribute greatly to the successful detoxification and
recovery of the addict. When combined with an experienced staff of
medical, therapeutical, health, and nutrition experts, a solid plan
for recovery can be made and the individual can start to build the
foundation needed to beat their addiction.
