There are some substances of abuse that will require medically supervised and managed detoxification programs. This is because they could increase your threat of suffering severe withdrawal symptoms.
If you are addicted to alcohol, for instance, you need to go through medical detox before you can overcome your alcohol use disorder. This is also the case if you have been abusing prescription drugs, opioids, heroin, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines.
Trying to detox from these substances without medical supervision, care, and management could increase your risk of suffering some painful and even life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. These include comas, hallucinations, seizures, suicidal thoughts, nausea, and vomiting. Additionally, you might struggle with severe drug cravings.
The goal of a medically managed and supervised detox program would be to reduce and eventually completely eliminate your drug cravings. If this does not happen, you might suffer a severe or even fatal overdose if you relapse after going through detox for a while.
Further, medical detox will manage, reduce, and eliminate your withdrawal symptoms. By so doing, they will ensure that you have an easier, more comfortable time overcoming your physical dependence on your favorite substances of abuse. This could improve your outcomes in recovery from the drugs listed above.
