What is Drug Detox? - Video & Tips

TIPS: If you are going to detox

  • Never stop taking medication without consulting a doctor.
  • If you have a sponsor or a loved one you trust, let him know that you are stopping.
  • Get medical assistance if you see the situation is getting out of control.
  • Get medical support through medical detox or advice from your doctor when detoxing from alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines.
  • Extrovert your attention. Walking and spending time outside can be very therapeutic.
  • Consider joining a support group to help you during the withdrawal.
  • Holistic detox approaches are also effective, especially when mild withdrawal symptoms do not require medication assistance.
  • Try to stay active; it can help take your attention away from the effects of withdrawal.
  • Make sure to eat healthy foods.

What's Next?

After completing a drug detox program in Maine, 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.
