What Is Drug Detox?
There are all sorts of illicit drugs out there for people to use and abuse, and every year, new drugs seem to come on the market. Synthetic marijuana is one of these newer drugs, and according to the University of Michigan’s Monitoring the Future Study, about 11 percent of teens admitted to taking that drug in 2011. Older drugs retain their allure, too.
Each drug can produce a novel set of withdrawal symptoms, and due to changes in body chemistry, every person that takes the same drug can have a different response to that drug.
Typically, drugs of abuse leave a twinge of damage behind. A drug detox program facilitates healing by allowing people with a history of drug abuse to clear their bodies of drugs. All the drugs they’ve taken can move through the person’s system, and all the body’s natural processes can finally resume without drug interference.
While this process is totally natural and very healthy, it can come with a few unpleasant side effects, which might include:
- Muscle pain
- Tearful eyes
