5 Things You Should Know About Detox – Infographic

Infographic 5 Things You Should Know About

Detoxing is one of the most important parts of the recovery process because you have to go through detox before you can get started properly on the road to recovery. 

The more you know about the detoxing process, the less afraid of it you will be, and the safer you will be. 

Here are the five things you should know about it. 

Every substance is different

Every substance will have different symptoms of withdrawal and a different withdrawal timeline. 

Every person is different

As well as the differences in substances, everyone will experience detox a little differently. In the same way that some people are more sensitive to pain than others, some people will experience more severe experiences of withdrawal. 

The worst symptoms may be delayed

Some people can get through the first couple of days of detox, thinking it won’t be too bad, only to then get hit by the worst symptoms after a few days. This is mostly a problem if you are trying to detox at home. This is dangerous, so you should have someone looking after you during this process. 

Detox can be dangerous

Detoxing from substances like opioids or cocaine can be very unpleasant, but it is not usually dangerous. Some drugs, however, do have withdrawal symptoms that are dangerous. 

If you are giving up benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or serious alcohol addiction, medical detox is the safest way to go. 

Detox is only the beginning

Detox is only the beginning of treatment. You can’t do much recovery until you have stopped using the substance. 

A good detox program can help you to get through it quickly!
