The first step.After the decision to “get clean” happens, one has to rid the body of the toxic substances. This usually occurs in a supervised medical setting called “DETOX”. The body has to be safely withdrawn from all chemicals to prevent serious medical complications. Doctors, nurses and other specially trained staff work in these centers that specialize in the detox process. The amount of time one remains in detox varies from person to person and depends on what chemicals have been used, for how long, and what the symptoms are to be treated.

There are different methods for this process: 1. Social Model; 2. Medical Model 3. Models for Specific Classification of Drugs (i.e.Rapid Opiate Detox for heroin, oxycotin and other narcotics). Whatever the drug use and accompanying symptoms, detox is best left to the professionals in these settings.
