Detoxification with addiction

It is no secret to anyone that regular use of narcotic substances very quickly leads to the emergence of physical and psychological dependence. The drug after some time becomes part of the metabolism, and an attempt to abandon it leads to withdrawal syndrome, which is also called breaking. At this stage, a person may experience the following symptoms:

  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting;
  • Cramps;
  • Aches in the joints;
  • Hallucinations;
  • Rave;
  • Dispelling attention and memory impairment.

This is due to the fact that the body accumulates various toxins that poison it – even after giving up drugs, they can cause painful cravings for the use of stimulants for years. Therefore, as with alcoholism, in order to help the patient cope with brittleness and carry out a cleansing of toxic elements, it is necessary to detoxify the body.

Detoxification of drug addicts – the first stage of the treatment process

Drug treatment is a long and difficult process that can take a very long time. The program is always selected by doctors of drug treatment centers individually, depending on the following factors:

  • The patient’s condition;
  • Usage experience;
  • Kind of drug;
  • Desire to be treated;
  • Age.

Detoxification in drug addiction is a prerequisite for the start of treatment – with this procedure a person’s hard way to get rid of addiction begins. It enables the patient to switch from the fear of breaking to the awareness of the need to undergo a course of treatment for drug addiction in the clinic.

Methods used to detoxify the body
