What Happens in a Drug
or Alcohol Detox?

Joshua explains the importance of going through detox with professional help with the examples of alcohol and benzodiazepines. Withdrawal from these substances can lead to potentially fatal seizures. It is highly recommended therefore to go through detox in the safe environment of a facility.
