Recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction is best left up to medical professionals. Trying to rid one’s body of its physical cravings without assistance can have deadly consequences.
Drug and alcohol addiction is a growing epidemic that strikes people from all walks of life. Eventually, many abusers recognize their problem and are then faced with several alternatives as they seek recovery.
One option is quitting “cold turkey” where the drug/alcohol user suddenly quits suddenly. This action very rarely meets with success and the results range from continued dependency to out of control use ending in death. Another course of action involves seeking the support of fellow addicts at meetings conducted by Alcoholics Anonymous. This organization, while very respected, does not offer treatment for the physical aspects of addiction and therefore many of those who depend on AA alone suffer a relapse.
A safe, effective way for an addict to recover is to check in to a detox center where he/she can recover through a medically supervised drug or alcohol treatment program. It is through this type of counseling and monitoring, a course of treatment is developed to overcome the physical and psychological problems associated with the addiction.
