    Just a reminder that the admins and mods (including me) as well as most of the members here are addicts helping addicts and are not medical professionals.

    Although the board is owned and financed by a Dr, he does not participate except for technical help/advice.

    The admins and mods for ODR are recovering addicts, here to maintain the running of the board and offer help to those who still suffer. None of us have medical backgrounds. Our advice comes from our experience and the experience of others..

    This includes the majority of the ODR members who are addicts in all phases of addiction and recovery, as well as loved ones of addicts. We are all here to share our experiences, strengths, and hope.

    There are lots of opinions and many suggestions on how to detox. Please keep in mind that although these are coming from the caring and experience of others and is meant to help, it doesn't mean that it's necessarily the approach for you. There is no one size fits all when it comes to detoxing.

    Along with this board as support, an effective way to a long and successful recovery is to add addiction and recovery professionals, family, and the use of 3D support groups...at least in the beginning.

    Some of the best lessons come from the experience of others...and there is a lot of valuable experience here, but as with any advice, please research and weigh the pros and cons before acting on it.
