Residential Nicotine Detox
Nicotine is the highly addictive chemical found in tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco, as well as vape products. The surge in the popularity of vaping has, unfortunately, broadened the scope of nicotine addiction in America. About 40% of high school seniors reported vaping in the last year, according to the most recent Monitoring the Future survey. In all, approximately 40 million people struggle with a nicotine addiction of some sort.
Not only is nicotine an addictive substance with its own health risks, but the negative health effects caused by tobacco products results in a threefold increase in people who smoke. Vaping products as well have come under scrutiny after a significant number of lung-related illnesses were reported in recent years.
LifeSync Malibu offers an inpatient nicotine detox program that can assist individuals who desire to break free from a nicotine addiction. When it is time to initiate the process of weaning off of nicotine products, the nicotine detox process should be carefully planned and monitored. Attempting smoking cessation on one’s own will likely be unsuccessful. In fact, according to a 2015 survey, 70% of individuals addicted to nicotine products desire to quit, but most are unable to do this on their own.
