What Is Drug and Alcohol Detox?

The detoxification process is intended to help a patient move beyond physical addiction by first overcoming withdrawal symptoms. Physical dependence occurs when the body and brain become reliant on the presence of drugs in the system and can no longer function properly without it. Because the body has adapted to “needing” that substance, withdrawal symptoms can oftentimes be intense, uncomfortable, and, in many cases, extremely dangerous. The detoxification process aims to mitigate withdrawal symptoms and often uses medications in order to ensure comfort during the detox process.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms

If a person has become physically dependent on a substance, immediately stopping use of that substance can include one or all of the following symptoms to extreme degrees:

  • Whole body symptoms: sweatiness, loss of appetite, and shakiness
  • Behavioral symptoms: restlessness, agitation, and irritability
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms: vomiting and nausea
  • Mood symptoms: anxiety or nervousness
  • Other symptoms: rapid heart rate, tremors, disorientation, headache, insomnia and seizures

For this reason, it is critical for those seeking to overcome withdrawal symptoms to speak with a detox that can help them navigate the process through medical detox.


Why Is Detox Important?

Detox is only the first step to a person’s journey to sobriety and is often critical for long-term results. As such, most patients who undergo a detox program will continue their treatment in an inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab setting. Because addiction is a psychological and physical disease, it is important that a patient receives both the physical and psychological help needed to overcome substance use and addiction.
