Detoxification is the process of withdrawing from being under the influence of a particular substance such as alcohol or other drugs. Many detox centers are medically-assisted but most drugs don't require that as they can be safely withdrawn from in a more social or non-medical setting. However, some detox centers are definitely more effective than others, as many drugs have residual withdrawal symptoms and some centers try to counter these by giving our more drugs after discharge, which doesn't seem to make much sense.

With the national epidemic of prescription drug dependency and addiction that has developed over the last decade has come an increasingly complex problem of safely and effectively detoxing from these drugs. Many of these harmful and potentially deadly prescriptions have very severe withdrawal symptoms that must be dealt with in a safe manner. In addition to this there are other substances that might require a medical detox or where one can be beneficial.
Many opiates have uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and addicts often wish to go to a detox center first, though it may not be necessary. These drugs include prescription painkillers, heroin, methadone and others. Withdrawing from high levels of alcohol could cause a siezure and therefore a medically-assisted detox may be necessary. Prescriptions such as benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin), antidepressants and antipsychotics, to name a few, can also have very severe withdrawal symptoms and should be done with medical oversight.

The best detox centers are the ones that focus on helping to repair the damage cuased to the body by the drugs and alcohol. This is often in the form of nutritional supplements, vitamin therapy, and other natural methods (compared to the worst centers, which send people out the door with new prescriptions). By starting to replenish the natural elements that are stripped out of a person's body by the toxins, it also helps to ease the lingering withdrawal symptoms that may include sleeplessness, aches and pains, depression or anxiety.
Beyond the short-term detox, there is an extremely effective method of doing a much more thorough detoxification through a full-body cleansing and nutritional program. Often called a biophysical detox, this is a procedure that eliminates the stored toxic residues the build up in the tissue of the body and can remain there long after someone has been weaned off the drugs. This has been found to eliminate physical cravings for drugs as well as restoring energy and mental capacity.
