Drug Detox Centers Jonesborough TN

Going cold turkey, or stopping suddenly and completely, is only recommended when you have been using a relatively less addictive drug such as marijuana, have been using for a short time, and have not been using heavily each day. In all other situations, going cold turkey will have results ranging from very uncomfortable to possibly fatal.

The brain become used to being flooded by chemicals ingested by the user, and sudden withdrawal causes a strong reaction.
