Detoxing is one of the first and most important steps of recovery, and it is also one of the most difficult. If you or a loved one wants to stop using, detox is a crucial and necessary step to ensure long-term sobriety. The detox process can trigger uncomfortable symptoms, also known as withdrawals. If individuals are not monitored by a trained professional, these symptoms can become deadly. Trying to stop all use of drugs and alcohol without the help of a professional can be terribly problematic, especially if the individual has been using for an adequate amount of time.
