  5. What is the meaning of detoxification?
Asked: 2017-12-15 00:21:21
I OD’d on heroin recently and although I haven’t quit it, I know that I need to, it upset my children so much and I need to get off it. I’ve been asking around and people are talking about detoxification, but I don’t really know what they mean?

When you come off heroin, detoxification is the process your body will go through to get all the drugs out of your system, and get over having them there. It’s not pretty, but it’s the first step to getting well.

Detoxification is basically the process of getting all the heroin out of your system, this is what puts you into withdrawal. You can go cold turkey, or you can do a programme that is monitored by a doctor. Good luck!
