What is a NON-Medical Detox?
A non-medical detox often provides you with much lower medical supervision. The critical processes used by Gallus Detox Centers is often missing or non-existent. A non-medical detox simply can’t provide the level of safety and comfort needed for you to be successful in the detox process. Aside from being unsuccessful, going “cold-turkey” can be frightening, painful, and even life-threatening. One must consider the type, amount and duration of drug being used as well as your overall general medical health in determining if a non-medical detox is even possible in your situation.
