Detoxification is the first stage in addiction recovery. This recovery stage safely eliminates all the drug and it’s toxins from the addict’s body and prepares them to continue into the next stages of their addiction recovery. Detoxification can last anywhere from three days to two weeks, with the average being about a week.
A Forever Recovery offers several different options in the detoxification stage, making this part of recovery personal and as comfortable as possible for all addicts. Whether the addict is addicted to alcohol, street drugs, or prescription drugs, we can design a detoxification program for any or all specific needs.
Some methods we utilize during detoxification include:
Sauna detoxification – offers the addict a chance to relax in the sauna every day until their bodies naturally cleanse themselves through perspiration.
Holistic detoxification – offers an all-natural approach using natural medicines to treat the pain of withdrawal. This form of detox uses meditation, yoga, and martial arts as a way of helping the addict relieve tension in their body.
Medicated detoxification – uses non-addictive medications to help the addict deal with any discomfort they might experience while in the detoxification process
Detoxification is a time of self-discovery, understanding, and growth. It may be considered a challenging part in addiction recovery, but without it, an individual will never fully overcome an addiction.
