Detox or detoxification is the process of removing toxins from the body. Those addicted to alcohol, illegal substances and legal prescription drugs usually require medical assistance and monitoring during the detoxification process to prevent significant pain, nausea, vomiting, tremors, seizures and possible death. Patients who enter treatment “high” or with alcohol, legal or illegal substances in their system must go through detoxification. Detoxification is necessary before treatment and recovery can begin.
