What is Detox?

Understanding Detoxification

Detoxification, or detox for short, focuses on removing toxic substances from the human body associated with alcohol and drugs. For addiction recovery from drugs and alcohol, detox is a method that aims to reduce the body’s dependency on certain substances by flushing them out of someone’s system entirely. This process marks a significant step on the road to rehabilitation.

In New Jersey, where addiction plagues a large number of people each year, there is a growing awareness and acceptance of the need for detox programs. There were nearly 100,000 admissions into drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in New Jersey alone just last year. With a cultural shift that is reducing the stigma of drug and alcohol addiction, more individuals are seeking help and support to overcome their dependencies.

What to Expect from Treatment

Detoxification & Treatment Timeline


Incoming patients can be screened for any underlying physical and mental health issues that will affect their treatment. Tailoring the treatment to their needs with their backgrounds in mind, we can offer a more personalized experience for each patient. If a patient requires detoxification services, we will happily refer them to a professional, licensed, and insurance friendly facility that can treat them for detoxification before returning to the Excel Treatment Center for outpatient or appropriate inpatient treatment.

Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal is the body’s way of reacting to the discontinuation or cessation of a substance that has been used frequently over a period of time. In general, the longer the period of time a substance is used for, and the higher the dosage, the more severe withdrawal symptoms will be. The body is shocked that the substance is not there, and the symptoms that occur afterward can be very uncomfortable for the person in question. These symptoms can vary widely in severity but will ultimately be very taxing on the body and mind of the user if not treated properly.
