It depends.: The best method of alcohol or drug detoxification depends on which substances are involved, the degree of dependence, your personal situation, and the financial resources you have available to pay for treatment. If you decide you need a physician's help, it's usually best to start by consulting a specialist in addiction medicine. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.

It depends.: The prognosis depends on many variables, such as the patient's age, other health conditions, and underlying cause of the stroke. However the need for mechanical ventilation a week out is, in general, not a good sign.

Yes: Unless you are extremely sensitive to caffeine (there's some caffeine in green tea), one cup a day should be safe for most people. But best in the morning so it doesn't interfere with sleep.
