No. Detox is an important step on the journey to recovery, but it must be recognised for what it is: a part of a much longer road. While uncomfortable, painful and extremely difficult, detox alone will not cure an addict. Following detox, it is important to continue with a treatment programme that focuses on behavioural therapy and the emotional and psychological side of addiction. Without a proper treatment programme, many users relapse into bad habits.
