Recovering from drug addiction can be a challenging process. After admitting you have a problem, the next step is to stop using. Detoxification is the process of eliminating the drugs from your system. Withdrawal symptoms from detoxing can vary based on the drug being abused.

Have you or a loved one ever been through a detox program?
