Why is Medication Required in a Drug Withdrawal Program?

For those who require a cleansing period prior to our comprehensive drug addiction treatment programme, severe withdrawal symptoms may be experienced and medical complications may arise.

A key component of any detoxification treatment is ‘stabilization’. This term covers all the medical and psychological interventions that occur in an effort to help the client come to a place of physical and psychological balance. Medication that has a similar effect to the drug may be prescribed in order to regulate the symptoms of withdrawal. This medication would be tapered off gradually during the detox program.
