What is drug detox and what are my options?
Drug detox is the process of removing the substance you have been abusing from your body completely, and your body adjusts to no longer receiving regular doses.
When you abuse drugs your body gets used to them and adapts. You must go through another adaptation when you stop using as well and it has side effects called withdrawals that are not pleasant.
There are medications available to help ease the pain of withdrawals and help with cravings.
Can I detox at home?
It is also much easier to relapse if you are detoxing at home and have to go through the same painful process again. A detox facility is meant to make the process as safe and comfortable as possible. Cravings are most severe during detox, they will often cause a full relapse if not in a professional setting.

- How much you have been using
