The Dangers of Improper Detoxing

While the risks of overdose or death are generally considered the greatest dangers associated with drug or alcohol dependence, improper detoxing can result in disastrous – even fatal – results as well. It may seem ironic, as detoxing is an integral and one of the earliest parts of the recovery process. However, the harsh reality is, an individual with a serious physical dependence on certain substances can find themselves in peril if this stage of recovery is not undertaken correctly. It's important for detoxing to happen with professional supervision such as during inpatient treatment at a medically assisted treatment center.

Before getting into the dangers of improper detoxing, it is important to understand why detoxing is necessary. That conversation must always start with the concept that prevents many with physical dependences from seeking help – withdrawal.
