Detox Programs Take Time, Commitment

Addicts and alcoholics will be quick to jump into a detox program in hopes to solve their addiction in 3-7 days. One of the reasons they get stuck on drugs and alcohol is because when they try and stop they go into withdrawal and it is very uncomfortable.

Short-term Medical detox programs will get you through the physical withdrawal as comfortably as possible with the use of drugs, and that's really it. Let's not forget that they still need to deal with why they got addicted in the first place. An addict starts using drugs on a daily basis to fill a void of some sort or mask feelings. This cannot be figured out in a week. It is a drawn out process that can only be accomplished with a completely clean and sober mind.
