Detox: A medical procedure for those who would suffer physical harm if they stopped cold turkey. In a medically assisted detox, medication—generally Suboxone or methadone—is used to ease the harsher withdrawal symptoms. In a medically supervised detox, a medical team is on-site to monitor the health of those who are detoxing but this term is not interchangeable with a medically assisted detox. Considered far more necessary for opiates and benzodiazepines than it is for drugs like cocaine and meth, detox is not a substitute for treatment.
