The detoxification process begins with the individual withdrawing or stopping the use of all substances abused, including inhalants, medications, alcohol and illicit drugs. During detoxification, addicts need time to let their bodies rid themselves of all toxins. This can take several days depending on how often the drugs were consumed, as well as the quantity and length of time they were used for. For example, if someone has been drinking for years and is intoxicated more frequently than they are sober, his or her detoxification will take longer than an individual who began drinking less than a year ago. The detoxification facility in Hialeah helps people during this phase of rehab and continues with additional treatment.
When someone continues to drink alcohol without any regard for the physical or emotional consequences, they have a substance abuse or addiction problem. In many cases, they do not recognize they have a problem. Some may drink more each time in order to get the same effect, and this builds up tolerance. As a result, alcohol abuse can lead to addiction. Heavy drinking can also lead to blackouts, coma and even death. Substance abuse treatment centers in Hialeah work with individuals to help them overcome their alcohol addiction.
