What is alcohol and other substance detox?

Detoxification is the first step for someone who is determined to recover from addiction, particularly for alcohol dependency, it is an assisted process of removing toxic substance from the body. During this time, toxics are completely flushed out from your body through systemic interventions or treatment.

Withdrawal symptoms may occur and typically subside within approximately one to two weeks after starting detox; however, this could take longer depending on the severity of your AUD. From there, you will be able to focus on other aspects of the recovery processes such as mindfulness activities, therapies, counseling sessions and rehabilitative support options.
