Most drugs and lighter amounts of alcohol can actually be withdrawn from in a social detox setting. This is where someone is either stepping down or completely stopping at once without any replacement drugs. The majority of people can do a social detox setting where no replacement drugs are required, but sometimes there are certain drugs or heavy amounts of drugs that do require a more medically-supervised setting. A medical detox is where short-term replacement drugs may be given to stabilize the individual and reduce or avoid severe withdrawal symptoms.

The last type of detox is more of a long-term, holistic route. There are many avenues for extended body detoxification, or cleanses. Health practictioners and detox specialists have used special diets, supplements, juices and other routines to help reduce the amount of toxins in individuals. One of the simplest ways is to have a healthier diet with as few processed foods as possible and drink plenty of water.

Detoxification is only the first step to a successful rehabilitation program in the Southeast. Detox centers provide a stable way to get off drugs or alcohol initially but in most cases the person must then go to a longer-term inpatient treatment program.
