Detoxification services are offered for addicted individuals in Petersburg who need help coming off of drugs, which can be very challenging when the person 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 will need to go through to detox on their own. Many physical and emotional 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 symptoms to severe depression and anxiety. In a professional Petersburg, West Virginia detoxification facility, detoxification services help the individual undergo this process as safely as possible and provide the needed medical and emotional support to get the person through detoxification without relapsing. Detoxification services are not full rehabilitation, but merely the initial step of a comprehensive drug rehabilitation facility that will further address underlying addiction issues so that the person can remain clean and sober for the long term.
