What are Detoxification Protocols?

Detox (detoxification) is the process of removing toxic substances (drugs or alcohol) from the body. Detox treatment is provided at the beginning of most inpatient programs at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. These facilities have varying approaches to substance detox depending on the severity of the addiction being treated, how long the patient has been struggling with drugs or alcohol, and the facility’s capabilities.

What are the symptoms of withdrawal?

Not all detox symptoms are considered life threatening but many symptoms can be uncomfortable. More severe addictions lead to more severe withdrawal symptoms. It is beneficial to receive medical care while detoxing from drugs. A number of problems can present themselves in the first days of detox that will need to be addressed immediately by a medical professional in order to continue to help patients reach physical stability without drugs or alcohol.

Some of these symptoms are:

  • Sweating
  • Excessive yawning
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Muscle aches
  • Increasing watering of the eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Insomnia
