German Version French Version

Withdrawal process of all kinds of drugs, which produce a physical dependence with withdrawal symptoms, above all alcohol, opiates and barbiturates. Before long-term therapy and rehabilitation a "detoxification phase" from approximately 10 days precedes in an hospital or an other medical therapy facility, in a manner that withdrawal symptoms are minimized.

While with the detoxification in a stationary hospital usually takes place with help of medicaments, some alternative mutual help groups like e.g. "Synanon" or Narcotics Anonymous practice the physical withdrawal of opiates without any medicines (scene term: cold turkey).
