Our rehab and detox clinic in Sydney specialises in drug and alcohol treatment. The purpose of detox is to support clients to overcome the physical dependence of substances, it is an essential first step of addiction treatment.

When a person uses or drinks regularly or heavily, their body will person’s body develop tolerance to and dependence on the substances that they use. They will need more and more of the substance in order to get the desired effect and will experience an array of uncomfortable symptoms when they try and stop using or drinking. Often users can’t stop using. This is normally because the cravings are so strong and/or when they try and stop the withdrawal symptoms are so uncomfortable that they turn back to drugs to try and cope with the symptoms.

This is because their bodies are now physically dependent on the substance. This is addiction.

A residential detox provides a supported environment in which clients can safely deal with their addictions.

Do I need a residential detox?

The short answer is yes.

Detoxing from all substances will lead to withdrawal symptoms. Even stopping something as benign as coffee can give daily coffee drinkers severe headaches, fatigue and anxiety as their body adjusts to the lack of caffeine in their system.
