Should I Seek Medical Detox
The need for medical detox can be determined by examining a variety of factors. For instance your drug of choice (including alcohol as a drug), frequency of usage, the amount of you typically use of your drug of choice, and your overall health.

Why Detoxing on Your Own is Harmful
The severity of the withdrawal symptoms will vary from person to person. Usually they will include some or all of these symptoms:
- Difficulty breathing
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Fear, paranoia
- Body aches
- Rapid pulse
- High blood pressure
Dealing with these symptoms on your own is very risky business, and for most addicts it is too much to overcome. This leads them back to their drug of choice. If you or your loved one has a long history of drug or alcohol abuse then the risk of detoxing without professional help is extremely high. A sudden halt of drug or alcohol use can result in seizures, strokes, heart attacks, and in severe cases even death. Don’t take this chance.
