Detox: The First Step
If you or a family member has plans to overcome an addiction to alcohol, you may find the process of navigating treatment options a confusing one. At Alcohol Services, we exist as a free resource to help callers find the right treatment plan for their unique situation. Since detoxing at home often leads to serious complications, including death, it is never advised; detox in a rehab facility with the supervision of a medical team is far more effective and will ensure less intense withdrawal symptoms.
