According to a report in 2011, an estimated 22.5 million people used illicit drugs over a single month. Additionally, almost one million visits occur in the ER every year around the country as it relates to illicit drugs. While the use of illicit drugs is higher for men than women, anyone of any age can use them and be addicted to them.
You are not alone in your addiction and help is available to you.
Detoxification, commonly referred to as detox, is an important part of the treatment process. Whether it is alcohol or drugs, they need to be purged from your system. Until everything is out of your system, it is going to cause you to suffer from the side effects. This in turn is going to cloud your judgment and make it harder to be open to the treatment that you will receive as an inpatient.
Different drugs have different effects on the body. Some act as a depressant and others act as a stimulant. There is likely some reason for you to have gotten involved in taking the drug in the first place – peer pressure, depression, the need to fit in, the desire to feel more productive. Regardless of why you were taking the drugs, they need to be removed so that you can begin to deal with your feelings in a drug-free manner.
