Home Detox For Drug & Alcohol In British Columbia

Throughout the province of British Columbia, there is a wide variety of different drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs and centers available to help men, women, and teens who are battling with a substance abuse problem. Drug addiction can be difficult to overcome, but if an addict can get through the initial detox, they will have made the first step onto the road to recovery, but it is important to understand that detox is not a final solution for treating addiction. Throughout the province, there are many different residential detox programs available to help addicts overcome their withdrawals, but some of these centers offer home detox kits. Home detox is set up for an addict to go through detox in their home, but in many cases, this can be very difficult and does not always have high rates of success. In the province of British Columbia, there are just over a few different drug and alcohol treatment programs that are able to provide addicts with home detox kits. These kits can be purchased from the treatment center and will come at different costs based on what is offered in the kit to help the addict overcome their withdrawals. If an addict is hooked on large amounts of opiates and other dangerous medications, it is highly recommended that the addict goes through a medical detox as it can be quite risky for an addict to stop taking these types of drugs abruptly. Some addicts will attempt this at home with a home detox kit, but it can be quite difficult to go through this on ones own.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
