Individuals struggling with drug and or alcohol addiction who are seeking treatment for the first time often do not know whether or not they need medical detox, rehab, or both. The same goes for those looking for treatment facilities for a struggling loved one.
Generally speaking, those who are chemically and physically dependent on a substance will require some type of detox and rehab. Detox is often required to clear toxins from the body before the individual is to attend an addiction rehab program. Medically supervised detox is designed to safely manage the withdrawal symptoms that follow drug or alcohol cessation.
There are individuals who might not require medical detox before attending a rehab program. The deciding factors for the need for detox are the substance of abuse, how much, how often, and how long the person has been abusing the drug of choice.
