There is hope for those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction: hope for you, or hope for your loved one. No addiction is ever too deep, too dark or too powerful for recovery. The first step toward lifelong recovery is to seek clinical treatment. As with any journey, it all begins by taking a few small steps forward.

ABOUT THE DETOX PROCESS
Detox provides a firm foundation on which sobriety can be built and developed. Yet, detox can also be dangerous, especially when done incorrectly. It is not an exaggeration to say that improper detox can be life threatening.

What makes detox such an important part of drug or alcohol addiction recovery? Essentially, recovery is the process through which the body and mind are both rid of harmful toxins—setting the stage for the pursuit of lifelong recovery.
Not all detox processes are the same; this is because not all drugs, and not all people, are the same. Often, quitting the use of a drug “cold turkey” can actually lead to significant withdrawal pains—and some of these can be lethal. As such, detox is sometimes a more incremental process, with the drug in question being gradually decreased in its dosage.
