Neworld Medical Detox Gets Featured on Intervention Canada’s Latest Documentary Episode

The word “addiction” is often used to refer to any behaviour that is out of control in some way.

You can be addicted to many things in life; a TV show, shopping or food. The word is also used to explain the experience of withdrawal when a substance or behavior is stopped. Drug addiction is a very complex disease that can affect both our behavior and the way our brains function. Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol is also a very unpleasant experience and sometimes a dangerous medical situation.

One simple way of describing addiction is the presence of the 4 Cs:
Craving
Control: Loss of control over amount or frequency of use 
Compulsion to use
Consequences: Use despite harmful consequences.

 

Medical detox alleviates this unpleasant feeling and helps pass the withdrawals in a medically safe condition. Once detox phase is over, the person is ready for the following addiction treatment step.
