If you are stuck in a condition that your dear one is under any sort of drug intoxication and you do not know how to deal with it. This is the drug detox treatment that you can do.

An ordinary person gets scared of the fallouts of drugs such as alcohol, cigarette-tobacco, opium, cannabis, marijuana, etc., and often fails to find the immediate treatment for the drug-affected person and how it is to be done. Here are some effective natural remedies for these problems.


For immediate treatment, take a cup of water, add the juice of one lemon to it and give this to the intoxicated person to drink as many times as necessary or you can also give him the juice of two apples to drink.


In case of alcohol poisoning which results from overdose, quickly prepare a mixture of 25 grams of pure ghee (butter) and 25 grams of rock sugar (mishri) and give to the patient half a spoon, every time when required.


1. Pour cold water directly onto the head.

2. Giving guava or a mixture of powdered sugar and powdered coriander/cilantro to eat to the intoxicated person is beneficial.


If one gets highly intoxicated on cannabis, take 30 grams of tamarind flesh soaked in 250 ml of water, mix it well and strain the entire mixture and add 30 grams of jaggery to it. Give this mixture to the intoxicated person to drink. This mixture can also be used in alcohol intoxication and other intoxications as well.


1.  Give buttermilk or cold sweetened fresh yogurt to the intoxicated person.

2.  Give him lemon or lemon pickle to eat.

3.  Guava helps to treat the cannabis intoxication immediately.If the person is unconscious under the influence of cannabis intoxication but is able to sense his surroundings then eating tender shoots of Indian blackberry (Jamun) tree is the best immediate drug detox treatment. If the person is deeply unconscious then give him Indian blackberry (jamun) crushed leaves mixed in water, 2-3 times a day.

To get rid of faintness due to cannabis intoxication, put few drops of lukewarm mustard oil as many times into the ears of the patient unless he comes back to the conscious state completely.


Give roasted gram (chana) to the patient to eat.


To get away with the opium intoxication immediately, give a mixture of 1 gram of asafoetida (hing) mixed with 60 ml of lukewarm water or buttermilk, twice or thrice a day to the patient. If it has not been long after intoxication, let the patient vomit immediately. For easy vomiting- (a) give him 25 grams of ghee (molten butter) to drink or (b) give him two spoonful of salt mixed in a glass of lukewarm water to drink and then insert two fingers into his throat to make him vomit or (c) give him a mixture of ground black mustard seeds mixed in a glass of lukewarm water to drink. These are the best drug detox methods.


1.Do not let the patient sleep, keep him alert. Sleeping after having opium on an empty stomach increases the effect of poisoning. Pour cold water onto the head of the patient and keep pinching him. To avoid sleep after vomit, give him strong coffee after every 15 minutes.

2. If someone has opium mixed with sesame oil then it is difficult to save his life. In such case, taking 4 grams of alum powder with water reduces the effect of poison.

3. It is advantageous to have 25 grams of walnut kernel daily for seven days.

4.Drinking 15 ml of milk for 8-10 times a day treats opium and cannabis intoxication.
