Dangers of Detoxing Without Medical Help

Dangers of Detoxing Without Medical Help

Detoxing Without Medical Help Can Be Dangerous

Drugs and alcohol build toxins and dependencies in the body as use continues. The physical components of addiction create harsh cycles of use, withdrawal, and then use again.

As addiction worsens, the withdrawals become more pronounced, forcing higher substance doses for users to feel normal. If you are struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, or if you know someone who needs help, detox is the first step in finding sobriety. Without detox, drugs and alcohol will continue perpetuating addiction. Many people think they can detox on their own. But detox at home can be deadly. Medically monitored drug and alcohol treatment in Stuart under the supervision of our addiction professionals at Banyan Detox Center is a safer option.

Why is Medically Supervised Detox So Important?

There’s no way to put it lightly; detox can be very dangerous. While it’s not as dangerous as a life of addiction, detox can include withdrawal symptoms which can be incredibly dangerous if help available. Detoxing from alcohol, opiates, benzos, and other substances can include withdrawal symptoms that range from uncomfortable to life-threatening. Without medical help complications can turn deadly.


At Banyan Detox Center, we offer medically supervised drug and alcohol treatment in Stuart, including medically supervised detoxification. Our medical professionals help support safe detox processes with therapy and medical support at all stages of detox. This helps to treat withdrawal symptoms, such as:

  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Sleep Issues
  • Sweating
  • Nausea & Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Disorientation & Confusion
  • Seizures
  • Tremors

The severity of these symptoms varies from person to person. The types of substances abused, your overall health, age, and the duration of your addiction will influence your detox process and withdrawal symptoms. Our treatment professionals at Banyan Detox Center can help you safely detox from drugs and alcohol, keeping your sobriety, success, and comfort in mind throughout your detoxification.

What Happens After Detox

After completing medially supervised detox, there’s still a lot of work to be done in finding sobriety. On its own, detox can help a person overcome the physical controls of addiction. But, there are also emotional and mental aspects of addiction and substance abuse. Successful treatment includes therapies and programs to help address every facet of addiction.

At Banyan Detox Center, we are here to help. We offer group therapy, individual therapy, pet therapy, psychodynamic therapies, and much more in the addiction treatment process. If you or someone you love is struggling to get sober, it’s time to reach out for help. Call us today at 888-280-4763 to learn more about our detox and addiction treatment services.
