The Detoxification stage of the Power Recovery Program works to rid your body of all types of toxins, not just those resulting from drug use. Toxic substances have accumulated in your body as a result of substance abuse, but you may also have high levels of toxins in your body as a result of environmental pollution and pesticides and chemical additives in the food you eat. In fact, high levels of toxins from these and other sources often cause biochemical imbalances in the first place, by damaging our digestive tracts or by interfering with our cellular biochemistry. In addition, many alcohol and drug users have poor eating habits; their diets are often unbalanced, and they tend to eat excessive quantities of sugar and other refined carbohydrates. Over time this can cause disruption in brain chemistry that lead to or exacerbate drug cravings. In Stage Two you will begin a second regimen of nutritional supplements that will help you cleanse your system of toxins.
