Why Do You Need to Detox When You Could Just Quit ‘Cold Turkey’?
Often times people ask themselves, "why do I need to detox when I can just quit 'cold turkey'?" It's a fair question. Some people can detox themselves at home without medical assistance. However, that is a very small number of people. The majority of people need help detoxing off drugs and/or alcohol. Could you be one of them?
On average, it takes someone 7-10 days to completely detox off their substance(s) of choice and be completely clean. Most fail without help. As a matter of fact, most cave-in between Day 3 and Day 5 because the withdrawal symptoms are too severe. These symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, cold chills, sweats, shaking, and confusion are very debilitating and relief seems nowhere in sight.
The good news is that you can make a different choice today. You don't have to go through the pain of withdrawal on your own again. The first step is to decide that this thing is bigger than you and that you need help. It's ok not to have it all together and to need assistance. But the old adage still remains true: you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. The choice is yours. Let us help you help yourself today. You'll be glad you did!
