Detoxification, or detox, is the process through which your body eliminates toxins from your system. In terms of addiction, detox refers to the initial stage of recovery. During detox, you stop using drugs or alcohol, and your system clears these toxic substances from your body.
Detoxing on your own can be dangerous because substances can cause severe withdrawal symptoms as your body breaks them down. Medically supervised detox helps to ensure your safety, manage withdrawal symptoms, and prepare you for the next stages of recovery.
