Drug and alcohol detox treatments are very important because the process is designed for you to remove the drugs and alcohol from your system in a carefully managed way. When detoxing one must mentally prepare for the changes that are going to happen, and realize that they are not dependent on these drugs. Drug and alcohol detox treatment can not be done by oneself. It typically requires a medical team to help support you in the process, since it can be physiologically and physically straining.
Psychological and Physical Detox Process
When beginning the process physically you may become very ill. You may experience sweating, nausea, shakes, difficulty sleeping, seizures, and much more. Psychologically, your brain has become dependent on the chemicals the drugs provide it, so when detoxing it will become unbalanced. This may lead to depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. To help make the detox process easier, one must drink plenty of fluids, take prescribed medications, and follow their drug program step by step. This is a life change and will require you to follow through with your healthcare even after the detox treatment process is complete.
