Physically withdrawing from drugs and alcohol can be lethal. Without medical supervision, detoxification is often so intense that the individual attempting to come off drugs or alcohol will give up before the process is complete. Desperate to regain physical comfort, this typically means using again before they can reach the residential phase of recovery.
The Importance of a Medically Supervised Detoxification
In most cases, withdrawal symptoms must be managed with specifically delivered and monitored medication. Without targeted medication, detoxification on one’s own can be lethal. Furthermore, without supervision, users are likely to abuse prescribed medication if they can access it to begin with. The only way to safely detox is to do so at a licensed and clinically supervised detoxification facility.
