Detoxification services are offered for individuals in West Haven, Connecticut who need professional help coming off of drugs, which can be very challenging when the person has become physically and/or psychologically addicted to a drug or to alcohol. One of the main reasons individuals find it hard to quit using drugs is because of the process they have to endure to detox on their own. Many physical and psychological discomforts 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 anxiety and depression. In a professional West Haven detox facility, detoxification services help the person undergo this process as safely as possible and provide the needed emotional assistance to get the person through detoxification without relapsing. Detoxification services are not drug rehabilitation, but simply the first step of an extensive drug rehabilitation facility that will further address root addiction issues so that the person can remain clean and sober for the long term.
