Detox begins the process of ridding the body of toxins contained in alcohol and other drugs.  Depending upon the severity of the addiction, what substances have been used, and duration of use, individuals may experience withdrawal when the substances, including alcohol, are abruptly discontinued.

Withdrawal symptoms vary with the individual and the various substances. Drugs like alcohol, opiates and tranquilizers can produce severe physical withdrawal.  Other drugs such as cocaine, marijuana or ecstasy tend to produce more emotional withdrawal.
