What Is Detox?

Chemical dependencies of all varieties present unique, yet serious physical and psychological health concerns. Dependence upon substances, such as alcohol and benzodiazepines, can create life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. For that matter, what is detox exactly?

Challenges of Detox

The human body’s chemistry, biology, and functioning change when an individual uses an addictive substance. The body adjusts to the recurrent ingestion of these chemicals, on all levels, compromising natural homeostasis. When an individual removes such a substance from their body and ceases ingestion, the body begins the process of reverting back to normal, healthy functioning.

Through this process, the individual may experience discomfort, pain, psychological irregularity, and strong emotions.
