• Things which may influence a LSD trip are their "mindset", the user's expectations, experience and mood at the time the drug is taken as well as the setting or place where they are using LSD.
  • Vicodin overdoses can occur for a variety of reasons and under different circumstances, such as someone taking too much Vicodin accidentally because they are not getting pain relief from their normal dose.
  • Opana withdrawal can induce both physical and psychological symptoms, all of which can be extremely unpleasant and are usually experienced shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose, but they can occur as early as four to six hours after the last administration of the drug.
  • Women are unable to metabolize alcohol as efficiently as men because they have less of a liver enzyme (dehydrogenase) that converts alcohol into an inactive substance.

Allison Park - Detoxification

Men and women who are physically dependent to drugs or alcohol and want help will first go through detoxification before receiving other treatment services in drug rehab. Detoxification is simply the process of the drug being eliminated from one's system, which is often uncomfortable and may hold risks if not performed in a setting which can provide appropriate support and medical intervention as needed. Detox services are provided at either a professional drug or alcohol detoxification facility or a drug rehab facility which can appropriately oversee and provide medical supervision for men and women who are just coming off of drugs. Detox services typically include insuring the individual is as relaxed as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, delivering proper nutrition and ensuring the individual is receiving proper rest, and supplying supplements and medicine as required to make the detoxification process as smooth and safe as possible. The person in detoxification will sometimes be encouraged to take part in some kind of physical activity such as walking, yoga, etc. At a drug detoxification facility or drug rehabilitation facility which can present detox services, the client will have detox staff at their disposal around the clock to ensure that any problems are fixed as quickly and safely as possible.
