How Effective Are Drug Detox Kits?

Posted by on October 8, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments


Quite a few detox kits are saturating the market these days. These kits come in the form of pills or drinks that flush out certain drug toxins out of your system. Although legal, these products' quality aren’t regulated properly, which presses us to ask the question: How effective are they?

Today, we’ll tackle some important issues regarding the efficacy of drug detox kits. In this way, if you were to consider it as an option for drug recovery, you’ll be able to acquire the best one for your particular needs.

Drug Detox Kits: Can They Really Beat Drug Tests?

As far as drug detox kits are concerned, you have to realize that not too much has gone into studying their effectiveness in beating drug tests. Still, some of the best detox products for a drug test have shown some successful outcomes.

While not placing in any list of top-performing detox kits, Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC kits sold online have provided certain degrees of success for some users. In one basic experimentation, three types of THC drinks, each used a single time on one subject, seemed to work well.

Of course, given that most rudimentary tests have accounted for most THC detox kits' success, it’s safe to say that further research still needs to be accomplished. Understandably, one may need the backing of more complex studies to be convinced of the effectiveness of detox kits for passing drug tests.

There’s also the issue with withdrawal symptoms from drugs. Withdrawal symptom management, when detoxing from a drug, is a serious task. In fact, these symptoms can be life-threatening when you're not provided with proper medical care.

Lastly, we have the legitimate risk of these kits simply not working at all, with consumers having virtually no legal countermeasures. You can easily be called a lawbreaker for trying to subvert a drug test mandated by your state or employer. With that said, it is crucial to educate yourself on local laws concerning products making false claims.

Should You Try Home Remedies?

They say a cup of coffee or a warm shower sobers you up real good but does it really? In reality, neither of these methods will actually work; they can even be dangerous in certain situations.

When you eat after consuming too much alcohol, the alcohol’s absorption into your bloodstream could potentially slow down. So, if you’re ever thinking about munching on some grub during a night out with friends, do it before or during a drinking session.

Another recommended home remedy is “sleeping off” the alcohol. This may be all good if you’re buzzed or tipsy, but not when you’ve potentially overdosed. Someone who has passed out drunk and left in that state could end up suffocating if they lie face down.

In any situation involving substance overdose, your first course of action should always be to call 911. There are reversal medications available for certain commonly-abused substances. In the event there aren’t, first responders are still best equipped to provide supportive care in these circumstances.

As far as home remedies are concerned, you won’t find one better than prevention. Since there is no proven home remedy that hastens the sobering process, you must do your part and limit the substances you take into your system.

How Long Can Drugs Be Detected in Your System?

The length of time drugs are detectable in your body depends on how long you’ve been using them and their dosage. Before a particular drug is flushed out of your system completely, you must stop taking it. That is because every time you take the drug, you are resetting the detox clock.

Here are some estimates on how long common drugs remain detectable in your system:

  • Marijuana: It can be detected in urine for up to 10 days for moderate users, while up to three months for chronic users. Traces of it can be found in hair for up to three months.
  • Opioids: Up to three days in urine and three months in hair
  • Cocaine: Up to three days in urine and up to 90 days in hair
  • Benzodiazepines: Can be detected in urine for up to one week when used for therapy and one month when taken chronically
  • Alcohol: Traceable for up to 24 hours in the urine and about 90 days in hair

It’s important to keep in mind that medical conditions, body mass, sex, hydration levels, and the presence of other substances in your system also determine the detectability of certain drugs during a drug test.


While most drug detox kits will profess to accomplish medical miracles for you, not all of them will actually make good on their promise. Generally, with these products’ poor regulations, the chances of ending up with a kit that fails to do as it claims are considerably high. So, unless the product has had some serious backing from experts and users in the industry, it's best to stick to prevention as your drug detox remedy of choice.
