Detoxification - Havertown, Pennsylvania

Individuals who are physically reliant to drugs or alcohol and want assistance will initially go through detox before receiving other treatment services in drug rehab. Detox is simply the process of the drug being removed from one's system, which is typically uncomfortable and may carry risks if not executed in a setting which can provide appropriate support and medical intervention as needed. Detox services are offered at either a professional drug or alcohol detoxification facility or a drug rehabilitation facility which can adequately oversee and present medical supervision for people who are just coming off of drugs.
