Can I detox at home?
The short answer is no. Attempting to detox by yourself (even with the help of a friend or family member) is extremely dangerous, and may result in serious mental and physical consequences. In some instances those who choose to forgo a medically monitored detoxification program lose their lives in the attempt. The symptoms of withdrawal are treatable in a medical setting, however, without proper support the symptoms of withdrawal can be very severe. Many who attempt to detox on their own quickly relapse thereafter.
