It’s important to have a fair chance when starting the road to recovery.
Depending on how long the abuse has taken place the body can become dependent on the substance.
This can lead to dangers, sometimes life threatening.
Withdrawals Can Kill
Alcohol and opiates are among the worse substances to overcome with drawls from. The body becomes so used to the substance and altered chemical state, that it can cause nausea and vomiting, as well as cold sweats and fever, sometimes even death.
It is important to take this period of recovery seriously, and have properly trained medical staff present to monitor progress.
Sometimes non narcotic drugs are used during drug and alcohol detox to help the body gradually come off of the substance to prevent shock.
Please call and speak to a trained counselor who can help you decide what is the best course of treatment for your situation.
