Detox Explained and How it Helps While Recovering From Addiction

The process of addiction-based detoxification can take place, both privately or at healthcare centers.
Medical detoxification refers to the process that safely and systematically removes drug toxins from the body and is generally performed under the supervision of a medical professional.

Consumption of drugs or alcohol causes physical dependence and brings about numerous withdrawal effects when the consumption stops. The detoxification process is designed to remove the alcoholic or drug chemicals stored in the body, along with the related toxins.

The process of addiction-based detoxification can take place, both privately or at healthcare centers; inpatient and outpatient detoxification. The inpatient detox process is a closely monitored treatment that prevents patients from consuming any sort of toxin in the form of drugs, alcohol or other dietary substance. Outpatient detoxification, on the other hand, is less expensive but takes a longer period of time. In such cases, the treatment plans are based on the choices of the patient in relation to other psychological treatments – like weakly counseling. Each treatment option widely depends on the condition and financial capability of the patient.

The detoxification process can be performed both through natural diet and medication. Mostly, patients and professionals prefer consumption of natural ingredients and opting for natural cleansing habits like yoga, exercise and breathing.

How it helps recovery from addiction:

As explained by Dr. Nora from NIDA “Detoxification is the first step towards both physical and mental cleansing”.  However, it is just the first step on the road of recovery and treatment- the process that will allow patients to step back into society without the urge for drugs or alcohol.

Detoxification basically removes the toxins that cause addictive urges. When the body is free from chemicals and toxins the brain reintegrates towards its natural chemical formation. Although the urge for addiction stops, this is after weeks and months of withdrawal symptoms. As the urges and cravings stop, the patients are more able to understand their mental and physical states, making both the counseling and rehabilitation processes more effective.

Both the counseling and medication works more effectively when the cravings stop. It has been medically proven that as long as drug toxins remain within the mind and body, counseling and medication has little or no effect on the rehabilitation process. Therefore for patients to recover, attain positivity and faith, it is significant to cleanse their body of the toxins and chemicals produced by alcohol or drugs.
