Detox is the first step in recovery from drug or alcohol abuse. An alarming number of students are attempting to self-detox from drugs, and the results have been disastrous. Much of this problem can be traced to a lack of detox-related resources.
---Alcohol Help Outpatient Rehab for Alcohol addiction
Outpatient rehab is one effective approach to treating alcoholism. An outpatient rehab program involves therapy, medication, support groups, and relapse-prevention training during the day, after which the patient returns home in the evening. However, outpatient rehab generally does not involve alcohol detox.
