Detoxification, or simply Detox, is a set of interventions aimed at managing substance withdrawal. Detox may prevent withdrawal related complications that might appear if symptoms were left untreated. Symptoms such as pain, discomfort, sleeplessness, anxiety and many other physical changes are managed through the use of medication detox protocols. At Global Medical Detox, our detox medication protocols are drug specific and tailored to the needs of each individual. For some patients, detox represents the point of first contact with the treatment system and the first step in the recovery process. It is important for patients undergoing detoxification to know that someone cares about them, respects them as individuals, and has hope for their future. At Global Medical Detox our staff members are passionate about the care provided and are unwavering in the belief that all people have the capacity to recover.
