    Drug Detox

    Detox is a drug rehab process that begins before the actual drug rehab treatment. It is used to remove any residual toxins left in your body (and brain) after using drugs, and it is used with the intent to help you or your loved one complete drug rehab.

    If you are addicted to opiates like heroin, methadone, or prescription painkillers, you will detox with medication. This is because the withdrawal symptoms are often more intense and uncomfortable for an opiate addict than for someone who has abused or is dependent on other drugs, like cocaine.
