If you’re considering rehab, chances are you’ve thought about what it would feel like to go through withdrawal symptoms. You may feel scared, anxious or even angry about having to go through withdrawal just to get sober. Unfortunately, this is the only path to get through addiction to recovery. While it can be difficult and incredibly challenging, it is essential for your future.
It may not sound like it, but there’s good news: with the right treatment program and support network, withdrawal doesn’t have to be difficult. Crest View Recovery Center can help to alleviate many of the symptoms that you will experience. Our therapies will make finding sobriety as simple as it possibly can be.
Knowledge Is Power
Going into anything without knowing what to expect can be frightening. Having an awareness of the process can make it far less intimidating. Knowing what to expect during detox can greatly aid your recovery. Not only does it prepare you for what’s to come, but it also allows you to create a support network that will help you during withdrawal and during recovery.
The type of drug greatly influences withdrawal symptoms. Certain drugs such as opioids and heroin will produce much more severe withdrawal symptoms than say for marijuana. An individual’s history of substance abuse, along with his or her overall physical and mental health also plays a role.
Generally speaking, individuals can expect to have one or more of the following withdrawal symptoms:
- Nausea or Vomiting
Withdrawal Symptoms Can Be Managed
Going through withdrawal on your own can not only be dangerous, but it can be downright miserable as well. Not only do you risk having major complications such as seizures or breathing difficulties, but you may also need the relief measures that only medical health professionals can provide. Thankfully, modern science has developed several techniques to help mitigate some of these uncomfortable symptoms. In extreme cases, medications can be prescribed to reduce some of the worst symptoms of withdrawal.
