Detox Winnipeg

Whenever a person is struggling with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, the first step in their path to recovery is typically detoxification, and here is information on this service:

  • Detox is done in order to rid the body of the toxins brought on by substance use.
  • Some people try to detox on their own, which can be dangerous considering the withdrawal symptoms that can occur. A detox program offers a safe and supervised environment where they can go through this process.
  • Detox on its own is not treatment, since it is essential that a person attends a proper treatment program after completing detox.

There are various forms of treatment available, but the main ones are inpatient and outpatient programs, and both have been successful in helping people overcome their addictions. Each of these has its own benefits; let's go through some of them:

  • For an outpatient program, the individual does not have to live at the facility. Although this does require a strong support system at home, it can be helpful for those who aren't able to afford to pause their life in order to attend residential treatment.
  • Residential treatment is, in many cases, the most effective form of treatment. The main reason for this is that by living at the facility, the individual is away from the stress of their daily life and can focus solely on their recovery.
  • When it comes to an inpatient program, there are two options: short-term programs, which typically last 28 days or less, or long-term programs, which can last anywhere from a month, to 3 months, and even more.
