Detoxing from alcohol or drugs is a difficult time for anyone with an addiction, especially with the withdrawal symptoms that usually come soon afterward. These symptoms can be both physically and emotionally draining for someone.
A lot of people who want to sober up put it off because of the withdrawal process and its effects. Whether they have gone through it previously or know from someone else’s experience, this fear stops many from going through detox. However, detox facilities are trained to know what strategies will lessen these symptoms.
