When you consume too much alcohol or drugs, your body needs to sober up to function normally. While there are some ways to improve your short-term mental and physical functioning, sobering up quickly is generally impossible.

It can take hours for your body to flush out alcohol or drugs from your system, depending on how much alcohol or narcotic drug you've consumed.

Even if you use methods to enhance alertness and awareness, you shouldn't drive or make important decisions until the substance’s effects are entirely flushed out of your system.

Time Needed to Sober Up
