Detoxification - Scarborough, ME.

Men and women 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 procedure of the drug being eradicated from one's system, which is frequently uncomfortable and may hold risks if not executed in a setting which can supply appropriate support and medical intervention as necessary. Detox services are offered at either a professional drug or alcohol detox facility or a drug rehab facility which can appropriately oversee and present medical supervision for individuals who are just coming off of drugs. Detoxification services generally include insuring the individual is as comfortable as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, providing proper nutrition and ensuring the person is getting proper rest, and providing supplements and medicine as needed to make the detox process as easy 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 offer detoxification services, the individual will have detox staff at their disposal around the clock to make sure that any problems are handled as quickly and safely as possible.
