The first step in the rehabilitation process is drug detox, focused primarily on purging or cleansing the patient’s body of the remaining drugs in her system. After successful detoxification, she will continue receiving medical care, education, as well as therapy and counseling on resisting temptations, avoiding relapses, and staying drug-free, healthy and happy.
Undergoing any drug detox program can be difficult. Patients need to know and understand this from the very beginning. We, at Her House, do not wish to sugarcoat the challenges that may be experienced by patients undergoing drug detox programs. The redeeming factor, however, is this: after passing the major challenge of ridding your body of drugs, you are one step closer to your goal.
