Is Detox Really Necessary?
Why Drug & Alcohol Detox is Important
Alcohol and drug addiction is a complex process which causes a person to become psychologically and physically dependent on a substance. From “street” drugs like cocaine and heroin, to prescription drugs like opioids and benzodiazepines, a number of illicit/licit drugs hold addiction potential.
The causes of addiction vary greatly and may include various physiological, psychological, social, and lifestyle factors. But regardless of the underlying motivation to use drugs, addiction is highly damaging to the health and personal life of an individual. Therefore, at Quest 2 Recovery, we offer tailored alcohol and drug detox programs that help an individual discover the path to an addiction-free, happy, and healthy life.

How Drug & Alcohol Addiction Happens
Why Do Some of Us Become Addicted?
There is no definite answer to this question. People of all ages may become addicted to an illicit or prescription drug, but the effects of addiction are particularly detrimental in adolescence. In most instances, the initial decision to consume a drug is voluntary. Since most drugs alter the brain’s reward system, upon continued use, an individual loses his or her ability to make a rational decision and becomes psychologically and physically dependent on the use of the drug in order to feel good.

How to Get Help for Addiction
The treatment of drug addiction comprises of two major components — detoxification and rehabilitation. The purpose of detoxification is to help an individual halt their drug or alcohol consumption in a safe manner that does not lead to any health-related consequences. Once the detoxification process is completed, rehabilitation starts. During rehabilitation, various behavioral therapies are used to help the client deal with their withdrawal symptoms and fight drug cravings. In addition, counseling is also used as a way to help the client identify and overcome their motivation to use a drug or alcohol.
