The purpose of drug detox is fourfold: (1) to manage withdrawal symptoms, (2) purge chemical substances, (3) recuperate the body and (4) return the brain to normal function.
Why Do You Need Detox?
Those who attempt to quit on their own often have to deal with the pain and discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. Many find withdrawal too difficult to handle by themselves and prefer professional detoxification services.

The human brain carefully coordinates the activity of billions of neurons throughout the body. When the brain is exposed to chemicals, such as alcohol, opiates and benzodiazepines, normal brain function is overridden and functioning is altered. When a person uses drugs occasionally, their brain is able to return to normal function soon after they stop. But, if someone repeatedly consumes drugs, their brain is forced into a constant state of imbalance.
If a brain is constantly out of balance it works to restore that balance. It does so by making neurological adjustments that improve necessary functions such as respiration and blood pressure. These adjustments can sometimes cause other health problems, such as physical dependence. Physical dependence means an individual is susceptible to withdrawal symptoms whenever he or she stops drinking or using. Dependence occurs because the brain has adapted to the constant presence of drugs.
If you are addicted to opiates, alcohol or benzodiazepines and abruptly stop, you’re going to feel sick – to greater or lessor degree. Unfortunately, when some individuals stop they experience acute withdrawal symptoms. This group can never safely detox without professional help.
