The answer to this question depends on the individual’s circumstances. Some patients will find that the process is faster than others. Factors that affect detox include the drug in question, the duration of use, the amount that you are used to taking, and your current health conditions.
It is estimated that the average length of detox doesn’t usually take more than eight days. However, it’s important to remember that this number only refers to the physical process of removing drugs from your system. Dealing with the emotional and psychological side of addiction can be a much longer process.
