Detoxification services are offered for addicted individuals in Branford, Connecticut who want assistance coming off of drugs, which can be very challenging when the individual has become physically and/or psychologically dependent to a drug or to alcohol. One of the main reasons individuals find it difficult to quit using drugs is because of the process they have to go through to detox on their own. Many physical and psychological challenges come with this process because the body begins to go through drug and/or alcohol withdrawal, the symptoms of which can range from flu like effects to severe anxiety and depression. In a professional Branford, CT. detoxification facility, detoxification services help the individual undergo this process as safely as possible and provide the needed physical and emotional assistance to get the individual through detoxification without relapsing. Detoxification services are not drug rehabilitation, but merely the first step of an extensive drug rehab center that will further address root addiction issues so that the person can achieve long term sobriety.
