Pittsburgh - Detoxification

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. Detoxification is basically the process of the drug being removed from one's system, which is generally uncomfortable and may carry risks if not performed in a setting which can supply appropriate support and medical intervention as needed. Detoxification services are provided at either a professional drug or alcohol detoxification facility or a drug rehab facility which can adequately oversee and provide medical supervision for people who are just coming off of drugs. Detox services frequently include insuring the client is as relaxed as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, providing proper nutrition and making certain the individual is getting proper rest, and supplying supplements and medicine as necessary to make the detox process as smooth and safe as possible. The particular person in detoxification will sometimes be encouraged to take part in some form of physical activity such as walking, yoga, etc. At a drug detox facility or drug rehabilitation facility which can supply detoxification services, the person will have detoxification staff at their disposal around the clock to assure that any issues are resolved as quickly and safely as possible.
