Detoxification - Lewiston

Individuals who are physically dependent to drugs or alcohol and want help will first go through detoxification before receiving other treatment services in drug rehab. Detox is simply the procedure of the drug being eliminated from one's system, which is generally uncomfortable and may hold risks if not carried out in a setting which can supply appropriate support and medical intervention as needed. Detox services are provided at either a professional drug or alcohol detoxification facility or a drug treatment facility which can effectively oversee and present medical supervision for persons who are just coming off of drugs. Detoxification services typically include insuring the person is as relaxed as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, delivering proper nutrition and making certain the person is receiving proper rest, and supplying supplements and medicine as required to make the detoxification process as smooth and safe as possible. The particular person in detoxification will sometimes be encouraged to take part in some sort of physical activity such as walking, yoga, etc. At a drug detox facility or drug rehab facility which can offer detox services, the person will have detoxification staff at their disposal around the clock to guarantee that any problems are resolved as swiftly and safely as possible.
