Why Medical Detox is the Best Way to Detox from Drugs and Alcohol

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSA) most recent annual survey reported that 46.3 million people aged 12 or older met the criteria for a substance use disorder in 2021. Of those 29.5 million people were classified as having an alcohol use disorder and 24 million people were classified as having a drug use disorder.

Unfortunately for those who want to achieve sobriety, it can be a long road to recovery especially when they try to detox on their own which often leads to relapse due to the severity of the withdrawal symptoms they experience. However, those who decide to complete a medical detox, have a much better chance of maintaining long-term sobriety due to the support they receive during the detox process.
