After completing a drug detox program in the District of Columbia, it is important to seek additional help since detox is only the first step in the recovery process. To achieve long-term sobriety, an individual should transfer from detox into some form of inpatient treatment. If this is not possible, then a person should at the very least seek outpatient services. You may need to conduct an intervention when someone is completely against continuing with treatment.
