What is Detox?
Drug addiction is like a thief in the night; it sneaks in quietly and steals everything from health to family relationships.

It’s likely you’ve tried everything to get him or her to stop, but to no avail.

- Drugs Requiring Detoxification. Both illegal street drugs and illegally-used prescription drugs require closely supervised detoxification. The detox process helps remove the drug chemicals from the addict’s body so he or she can begin to heal physically and mentally. Drugs such as heroin, cocaine and other opiates, along with painkillers can be difficult and dangerous to attempt to quit without the safety of a monitored detox.
- Why is Detox Necessary? Physical and psychological dependence develop as the substance abuser continues to use drugs. Eventually, the user’s body and mind require the drug to function normally. In as short as a few hours, withdrawal symptoms can begin and quickly become dangerous. A safe and supervised detox at Blue Water Detox protects you or your loved one from the potential dangers.
- The Dangers of Not Seeking Drug Detox. If your loved one continues with addiction or attempts to quit drugs alone, he or she will face serious dangers. The consequences of continuing to use drugs include physical and mental health issues, possible incarceration and death. Those who try to go cold turkey, or detox by themselves, put themselves at-risk of life-threatening situations, such as choking to death on vomit, also known as aspiration.
- How Blue Water Detox Can Help. Blue Water Detox provides medical detox treatment to help you or your loved one ease through the transition from addiction to recovery without suffering through withdrawal symptoms to their fullest extent. Medical detoxification also aids the body in removing the harmful toxins and drug residues, which successfully breaks physical or psychological dependency. Many people associate detox with pain and anxiety but our caring, compassionate detox program alleviates both for you.
