Detoxing without supervision results in higher chances of relapse, lack of emotional support and counselling and probable severe (possibly fatal) withdrawal symptoms.

What drugs cause the most severe withdrawal symptoms?

Opiates, heroin, and methamphetamine are among the most powerful substances on the world, and they cause some of the most severe cases of life-threatening drug withdrawal symptoms. During withdrawal, a person's delusions and hallucinations may induce them to damage himself or others.
