What exactly is alcohol detox?

March 22, 2018

Detox is short for detoxification and basically means removing the toxins – i.e. the alcohol or drugs – from your body.

While detoxing can be done naturally at home, you will have withdrawal symptoms, and particularly with alcohol, those symptoms can be fatal, so it’s best to speak to someone, such as your doctor or your rehab clinic to decide whether home detox is suitable for you, or whether you will be better going through medical alcohol detox in a proper facility, where you are under observation throughout and have suitable medication to help you with your withdrawal symptoms and keep you more comfortable.

Your body will change when you no longer have alcohol in your system as part of the detox process, and you will then be ready to go forward into alcohol rehab.
