  2. A drug is converted to a metabolite with roughly equivalent or slightly lower pharmacological activity.

Detox is a “must” for any person to fully recover as his or her body must work to remove from their body those toxic chemicals and their byproducts introduced by either drugs or alcohol.
Detox is the process of not only eradicating the body of those harmful chemicals, but helping a person to get past the violent cravings experienced during withdrawal and finding a level of functionality based on no physical dependency of any sort for drugs or alcohol.
The detox process is meant to prepare a patient for enrollment into a treatment or rehab facility to better understand their substance abuse disease and illness and invent new ways to live life without these harmful agents being present and negatively affecting their daily lives.
