Do I Need Medical Detox
How do you know you might need medical detox?
Addiction isn't only psychological. Over time your body becomes dependent on the substance you're addicted to, just like it's dependent on food. And when you choose to give up that substance, your body reacts physically in ways that can range from uncomfortable to dangerous.
Detox facility professionals can consider your addiction — what substance you use, how often and how much — and determine if temporary, 24-hour medical supervision would help make detoxifying more comfortable or safer for you.
LyfeBack can recommend a highly respected detox facility and get you admitted to it the same day you call us.

Alcohol and drug detoxification
Withdrawal is more than just feeling sick. It's your body demanding the substance you're addicted to. Withdrawal can be dangerous, even life-threatening. In many cases, medical supervision gives you your best chance of coming through the detoxification process safe and healthy so you can get on to the next stage: successful, long-term recovery.
Risks of detoxification on your own
How you experience detox will depend on your addiction history and your physical condition. But the sudden absence of the substance your body has become dependent on can trigger seizures, heart attack or stroke, and can even be fatal. A medical detox professional can evaluate your risk and help you decide if supervised detox is your safest option.
It's important to get the advice of a professional before you decide against medically supervised detox. But if you or a loved one exhibits any of these symptoms after even brief periods without a substance, please consider medical help:
Nausea and vomiting
Confusion or depression
Fear, anxiety or paranoia
