Some individuals require alcohol detox before they can start to work on changing their behavior. IV therapy medical detox is seen as the safest and most effective method for detox available. IV therapy medical detox is administered by a physician and intravenous therapy is important because it allows the medication to be changed to meet the physical withdrawal symptoms which keeps the patient comfortable and allows the patient to complete the detox. Research shows that individuals who are successful in detox are more likely not to return to alcohol use than individuals who were not successful in detox.
