Detoxification - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania

Individuals who are physically reliant to drugs or alcohol and want assistance will first go through detoxification before receiving other treatment services in drug rehab. Detox is simply the process of the drug being eliminated from one's system, which is generally uncomfortable and may hold risks if not conducted in a setting which can provide 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 correctly oversee and supply medical supervision for individuals who are just coming off of drugs. Detox services typically include insuring the person is as comfortable as possible while detoxing and going through drug or alcohol withdrawal, offering proper nutrition and making certain the person is getting proper rest, and supplying supplements and medicine as needed to make the detox process as easy and safe as possible. The particular 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 provide detox services, the individual will have detoxification staff at their disposal around the clock to assure that any problems are handled as quickly and safely as possible.
