If you or a loved one has experienced the heartbreak of addiction, you know what trauma and damage the addiction can to do a person or a family. Professional medical detox help is needed to get you the individualized help that you desperately need to safely detox. Detox is the first step on your road to recovery. Once that is done, you can start on your journey to a new life.
Withdrawal Symptoms Can Be Difficult
Going through withdrawal alone is not a good idea. Without having proper supervision, relapse is more likely to occur to avoid the symptoms. When you stop using a chemical that has been in your body for a while, it can cause some serious side effects. In some severe cases, doing so has even lead to death. Most substances have some kind of withdrawal.
While every substance has its own set of withdrawal symptoms, there are several that are common between most detox processes. Common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Mental illness
Whatever physical problems or mental health issues you were trying to mask by using drugs are still there. You need help learning to deal with your problems, and with the physical and mental problems that drug withdrawal can cause. This is typically where addiction therapy programs become essential.
Addiction therapy happens after detox has been completed. Here you will work with therapists to find the root of your addiction and help you develop better habits and coping mechanisms. Therapy is most effective once your body has been cleansed of a substance and you are ready to make the change for the better.
