Detoxification is a natural process that the body undertakes to rid itself of toxic substances such as alcohol, opiates, and other drugs. The organ primarily responsible for this action is the liver, and depending on the drug and the level of individual consumption, it can take anywhere from 48 to 96 hours for the liver to rid the body of the toxin. The detoxification can take longer if your liver is diseased or damaged. Patients who have other physical maladies may also experience longer detoxification times.
