An Overview of Detoxification
What is Detox?
Detox or detoxification is the process that helps an addict’s body remove drugs or alcohol. The primary purpose of detoxification is to help a person manage their withdrawal symptoms while attempting to quit alcohol or drugs. If you are currently struggling with addiction, our drug & alcohol detox program in Chatsworth, California is a great solution to starting your journey to recovery.
Detox removes the toxins present in the body from substance use. Detox is the period when your body allows metabolizing any alcohol or drugs in your system and clearing their toxic influence in the process.
The process of detoxification is different for each person. The drug type and how long the person is addicted widely affects the process of detoxification. Medical professionals may use detox medications to keep the former users in a state of comfort while their bodies adjust to the absence of drugs.

Do I really need detox?
Detoxification is the process that safely manages withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal varies depending on the substance you’re abusing, and will occur as soon as a few hours after the last time you took drugs or drank alcohol. In certain cases, withdrawal can be life-threatening. The safest way to stop using drugs or alcohol is at a detox facility. During this time, you’ll be under the supervision of medical professionals who will monitor and treat your withdrawal symptoms.
Substance abuse and addiction will fill your body with harmful toxins. Detox will clean your body of those toxins. In detox, your liver does a lot of good work by naturally eliminating a lot foreign substances, waste products, and other materials. Your liver also continuously works to clean your blood. When you consume alcohol or drugs for a very long period, your body becomes used to a certain level of substances due to continuous use, despite the negative physical effects.
Trying to detox on your own can lead to major health complications and/or relapse. Depending on the substance you’re abusing, withdrawals can be fatal. Addicts who attempt to detox on their own have a much higher chance of relapsing because withdrawal from drugs or alcohol will cause cravings. Addiction causes your brain to think it needs drugs or alcohol to survive, so when you stop using, your brain sends signals alerting you to use drugs or alcohol again. Detoxing at a facility will help you combat these cravings.
While not all addictions require detox, most do. If you or someone you know is battling addiction and is unsure if they need detox, call our facility in Chatsworth today to find out. We’ll happily answer any and all questions you may have regarding detox.
