Detoxification - Chamblee, Georgia

People who are physically dependent to drugs or alcohol and want help will initially 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 typically uncomfortable and may carry risks if not conducted in a setting which can supply appropriate support and medical intervention as needed. Detoxification services are provided at either a professional drug or alcohol detox facility or a drug treatment facility which can properly oversee and present medical supervision for persons who are just coming off of drugs. Detoxification services usually include insuring the client is as relaxed as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, offering proper nutrition and ensuring the particular person is receiving proper rest, and providing supplements and medicine as required to make the detoxification process as easy and safe as possible. The person in detox 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 treatment facility which can supply detox services, the person will have detox staff at their disposal around the clock to guarantee that any complications are resolved as swiftly and safely as possible.
