Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to detox?

The length of time it takes to detox is determined by a number of factors, including the type of substances abused and the severity of the abuse.

Do drug rehab medications pose a risk of addiction?

A number of the pharmaceuticals used in detox have the potential to cause addiction, and most of them can only be prescribed by a licensed physician.

What are the risks of detoxing without medical supervision?

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.

How can detox side effects be minimised?

There are a few things you can do both before and during your detox programme to alleviate the discomfort of side effects, such as drinking plenty of water, taking medications as recommended, enrolling in a detox programme, and following through with a continuum of treatment.
