Default finish detox before rehab!

I have been in 5 drug detoxifications, and from different centers. I think you guys would need to know that before you can begin rehab, you'd need to undergo the detox process and complete it first.

I know from experience that if you start drug counselling with these toxins still in your body, you would only set yourself up for a painful relapse.

That's true. Detox is not enough, you need to enter rehab or start counseling when you finish detox. Unlike what other people thinks!

Thank you for sharing that. I guess most of us make the mistake of getting into rehab or counselling straight away!

It seems to me that it's common sense to complete a detox first. Detox takes the drugs out of your body, it expels all the dangerous elements in the drugs you used.

I also heard that drug detox does not work on its own...

Well, yes. Detox is only the first step to recovery, not the treatment itself.

It is also very important to be under medical supervision when you're going through detox. This is to make your withdrawal symptoms manageable!

A doctor could also tell you that what you're experiencing is a normal part of detox, and could monitor if you're undergoing something that's life threatening. Detox is a difficult process, so it's really necessary to have medical supervision.

My cousin underwent detox for like a week, but I've heard that detox only takes one day. Was he fibbing me?

Detox times vary depending on the person and how addicted he is. So it's possible that your cousin was severely addicted.
