Biddeford, Maine - Detoxification

Individuals who are physically reliant to drugs or alcohol and want assistance will first go through detoxification before getting other treatment services in drug rehab. Detoxification is basically the process of the drug being eliminated from one's system, which is frequently uncomfortable and may hold risks if not conducted in a setting which can provide appropriate support and medical intervention as required. Detox services are supplied at either a professional drug or alcohol detoxification facility or a drug rehab facility which can appropriately oversee and present medical supervision for people who are just coming off of drugs. Detox services generally include insuring the individual is as comfortable as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, supplying proper nutrition and ensuring the person is getting proper rest, and supplying supplements and medicine as required to make the detoxification process as smooth and safe as possible. The individual in detoxification will sometimes be encouraged to take part in some variety of physical activity such as walking, yoga, etc. At a drug detoxification facility or drug rehabilitation facility which can present detox services, the individual will have detox staff at their disposal around the clock to ensure that any difficulties are handled as quickly and safely as possible.
