Is detox all a person requires?

The detox process is not the only procedure an addict will require; the process does help with the initial withdrawals and will ensure a patient is stabilized. However, because addiction can be a very deep-rooted problem, it will require drug rehabilitation afterward when a patient has completed detox, such as a Suboxone detox program.
