Detoxification is one of the most important first steps in the recovery process. During detox, as the process is known, a patient slowing recovers from the addictive substance, heavily monitored and often with the help of medication. Though drug detox is an important first step, complete recovery does not result from simply removing the drugs from a person's body. After detox is complete, it is crucial that the patient go into day treatment to avoid relapse. Only combined with follow-up treatment does drug rehab give patients the tools to remain drug addiction-free for life.
