Home Detox Centres For Drug & Alcohol Addictions In Manitoba

Home detox is done at home, and it is usually kits that can be purchased from drug and alcohol treatment centers in the area. Throughout the province of Manitoba are some drug treatment programs, which do provide home detox services and kits that can be bought to help an addict through the initial detox. Detox can be different for each addict, and some addicts will not be able to detox on their own and will require the help of a detox center and/or facility.

Depending on the drugs the addict is taking the detox can either be quite short and simple or end up being long and painful and require either a detox center or a medical detox facility to help.  Home detox can work for addicts who are not using every day and have only been using drugs for short periods of time.  If an addict has been using for long periods of time, and are consuming large amounts of drugs and or alcohol, they will require a residential detox program or medical detox where they can go through a controlled withdrawal process.

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.
