Drug detox and withdrawal procedures are the essential primary stages in outlining a patient's drug treatment programme. Often the impacts of the drug on the brain extend continued use and skew otherwise good judgment, It's important to have a period of no drug use in getting that person to a stable state of mind.
Users can clear their heads and consider their further treatment plans while detox process lasts. The plan is to get the addict to start to acknowledge his/her addiction and to decrease and ultimately put an end to substance use.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) TIP 45 on drug detox notes that this period is a "window of opportunity" for an individual in both medical and personal crises to consider further treatment.
Detox is a series of interventions that are designed to manage acute intoxication and withdrawal symptoms, as defined by SAMHSA. Detox, which is a precursor for substance abuse treatment, can last a few days or for a longer period such as months depending on the severity of the addiction among other factors.

It is highly and professionally recommended that addicts go through a long term treatment plan as detoxification does not deal with the social, emotional, cognitive and psychological issues that arise as a result of addiction.
Detox involves three important stages in which during the last one, the patient will be transferred to either an inpatient or outpatient programme.
