While it is technically possible to achieve a measure of freedom from addiction quitting cold turkey, it isn’t a good idea to try it. The painful cravings and withdrawal symptoms involved can be more than just difficult to accept; they can be dangerous, as well.
Most addicts attempting this route to power their way through to sobriety simply abandon the course midway; others carry lifelong scars of post-traumatic stress disorder. The path from addiction to sobriety, then, needs necessarily to begin with medical detox. At their best, medical detox programs help patients escape cravings and withdrawal symptoms with minimal discomfort. They make an important contribution.
People who successfully complete medical detox are able to live free of cravings or withdrawal symptoms from one day to the next, in the short term. However, medical detox should not be the only course of treatment. Aftercare services such as relapse prevention therapy and addiction recovery programs must also be utilized in order to achieve sobriety for the long-term.

Addiction happens when a person no longer feels in control of their attraction to substance abuse. Asserting will power is no longer an option.
Our detox experts are able to help patients withdrawing from these drugs and others through the application of some of the most advanced medicines in existence. The dangerous effects of meth and heroin withdrawal are suppressed and made far more tolerable through the administration of Suboxone.
Medical detox is offered in two different treatment environments. It is possible, for instance, to accept detox at an outpatient center a couple of times a week, while living at home. However, the outpatient method is rarely as successful as the inpatient one for patients who come in with complications.
