Detox is usually the first step in addiction treatments, and this is the process of clearing your body of any drugs or alcohol.
Alcohol detox can be very uncomfortable, but if you’re in a safe place you should experience less discomfort than if you were detoxing from other substances.

Typical treatment options include outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, counseling and mental health services, family sessions, detox care, follow-up recovery care.
