Drug detoxification is designed to smooth the transition between a life marred by intoxication and a life enhanced by sobriety.
Rather than shoving people from one state to another, detox slows the process so the body can adjust in a measured and controlled manner. Discomfort is reduced when the transition is slow, and the risk of serious medical side effects is also ameliorated. Medications play a major role in this process, as medications can help to soothe discomfort and ease chemical transitions. The medications people need during detox can vary, depending on the person’s medical history and drug abuse history, but these are the tools typically used in a detox program.
