Help is Possible

Some home detox options are available within the state of South Dakota. It is very common for some drug rehab programs to offer some support and assistance with a home detox. There are many situations where an addict cannot afford to go to detox, or there may be long waiting lists for the detox centers within their area. If this is the case, an addict may look at home detox as a solution to help them before they enter drug rehabilitation. Most home detox programs are specifically designed for adults, as they can tend to see the best results from the whole process. Home detox will not work for every situation, whether it is an addiction or a physical dependency, but many adults who take advantage of the services will see good results if they are willing to make it work.

More Information

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute. Marcel has also received a certificate from Harvard for completing a course entitled The Opioid Crisis in America and a certificate from The University of Adelaide for completing a course entitled AddictionX: Managing Addiction: A Framework for Succesful Treatment.
