What is Detox?

Believe Treatment » Blog » What is Detox?

Addiction occurs when the substance you may have once enjoyed becomes your master.  You need it to get through your day and the absence of it causes a physical reaction.  Once addiction has you in its grips, you may require a medical detoxification program in order to recover and get off of the substance safely.  The road to recovery begins with detox. Detox is the process by which alcohol and other drugs are cleansed from the body, while the symptoms of withdrawal are properly managed. It can be dangerous to suddenly stop using alcohol or some drugs without proper medical supervision, if you have been using excessively over a long period of time.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the abuse of street drugs and alcohol results in more than $600 billion each year in costs associated with healthcare, lost productivity and crime.   Believe Treatment Center can provide the critical help you need when it seems that alcohol or drugs have taken over your life or the life of someone close to you. The first step in obtaining help is admitting you need it.  Many people hesitate to surrender not knowing what future will hold.

At Believe Treatment Center we have seen enough to know that one of two things will occur.  The first being a life affirming change that brings hope back to a hopeless life and the second to go to the bitter ends without help that include jails, institutions and death.  The second is unfortunately too common in the lives of addicts.  Addiction brings with it sick thinking and false pride.  If you know someone who is in the grips of addiction and do nothing, they may never recover.  Intervention planned with a professional may be the miracle they need to walk the path of hope.  If you suffer or know of someone who does, pick up the phone and call 1-855-874-2354 or check us out on the web at believetreatmentcenter.com‎, we can answer questions about addiction, detoxification and treatment.  Don’t put it off until it is too late!
