Substance abuse is an insidious disease, and destroying the lives of people who are afflicted by a dependency on drugs and/or alcohol, and causing untold suffering on anyone who has a family member who is addicted.

Unfortunately, because of the ways in which addiction is stigmatized, many people conceal their problems with substance dependency from their family members, and sometimes whole families conceal problems from the outside world.

Like an intervention, detox that is a common precursor to treatment, but should not be mistaken for addiction rehabilitation recovery. It is essential to understand that detox will not “cure” an addict of their problems with addiction. Detox, or detoxification, is a good initial step toward recovery that will allow the addict to properly and swiftly withdraw from the substance(s) they are addicted to, sometimes with assistance from medication. There are two commonly utilized kinds of detoxification:
MEDICALLY SUPERVISED DETOXIFICATION
(Also known as medically supervised withdrawal) happens in a hospital or inpatient facility where the addict’s withdrawal is monitored by a nurse or doctor.
Social detoxification occurs in a residential or outpatient facility, and involves instructing the addict, and preparing them for treatment.
Depending on the needs of their client, Recovery Treatment Substance Abuse can offer either type of detox.
