Altoona - Detoxification

People who are physically dependent to drugs or alcohol and want help will initially go through detox before getting other treatment services in drug rehab. Detox is basically the process of the drug being eradicated from one's system, which is frequently uncomfortable and may carry risks if not performed in a setting which can provide appropriate support and medical intervention as required. Detoxification services are provided at either a professional drug or alcohol detox facility or a drug rehabilitation facility which can adequately oversee and present medical supervision for individuals who are just coming off of drugs. Detoxification services usually include insuring the individual is as relaxed as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, supplying proper nutrition and making certain the person is receiving proper rest, and providing supplements and medicine as needed to make the detox process as easy and safe as possible. The particular person in detox will sometimes be encouraged to take part in some type of physical activity such as walking, yoga, etc. At a drug detoxification facility or drug treatment facility which can provide detox services, the person will have detoxification staff at their disposal around the clock to ensure that any issues are resolved as quickly and safely as possible.
