It is possible that some drug rehabilitation facilities in D.C. will provide home detox kits for addicts. Home detox is a process where an addict will detox at home and not go through it within a drug and alcohol detox program. Drug detox centers can be very effective because they are within a controlled setting, but home detox kits will work in some situations. When detoxing at home, it can be difficult to know when the detox process is done.

Typically when an addict is no longer feeling the physical withdrawals and is not experiencing any further symptoms, it will be time to move on with additional drug and alcohol treatment.

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.
