Detoxification refers to the process of removing the buildup of substances, toxins, and poisons from the system. It is an essential service if you have been abusing drugs in the long term. Further, this service would be required if your natural detoxification system is unable to get rid of the type or amount of substance that is lodged in your body.
During detox, your body will use the skin through sebum and sweat, the gall bladder and liver (bile), the lungs, the intestines (fecal matter), the lymphatic system (lymph), and the kidneys (urine) to eliminate the toxins that have been accumulating during your substance abuse.
You might also need medical detox service if you have been taking certain substances of abuse like alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, and barbiturates. This is because these drugs often cause adverse and sometimes severely life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.
Without a medical detoxification program, you might succumb to your withdrawal symptoms or even start abusing these substances again. This could increase your risk of suffering a fatal relapse.
Finally, medically managed detox is recommended if you have a co-occurring mental health disorder or medical condition over and above your addiction. In such a situation, the co-occurring condition could complicate your withdrawal process, and you should only detox in a medically supervised environment in Minnesota.
